Brian Moore: England's power plan is effective, let's now see their plan B
England have made their way into the final of the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup where they will take on Six Nations runners up France at Twickenham. Joining Brian in studio to reflect on the weekend's action is former London Irish and England winger Topsy Ojo. The pair reflect on yet another forward dominated win by England, this time over Wales, in the Autumn Nations Cup. Eddie Jones once again relied on his pack to grind down the Welsh and whilst both Brian and Topsy agree they were in complete control, both want to see England throw the ball around a little more against France in their final match before the Six Nations this Sunday. France qualified for Sunday's final with a routine win over Italy but their preparations for the clash with England have been hampered by having a number of their squad re called to their club sides. We speak with former French international Thomas Castaignède about the battle between French Rugby and their club sides and also about the tragic passing of his former international teammate Christophe Dominici who died suddenly last week aged just 48. In the Gallagher Premiership, London Irish made a winning return in their first game in the capital for 20 years, Topsy was there to experience their new stadium and says it has provided a massive lift for everyone at the club, we also cha to Newcastle Falcons head coach Dave Walder after the promoted side made it two wins from two with a last gasp win over Sale. And as ever, as part of the Mitsubishi volunteer programme, we speak to the volunteers who have been working tirelessly during the last year to keep grassroots rugby alive during the Covid-19 pandemic.

7: Episode 7 - The Podcast That Almost Went Wrong - Ed Jackson To The Rescue - From Suffering Paralysis To Summiting Everest
Due to a lack of legal fees thanks to some dodgy investments in Biltong and a lot of A.C.Ltd's money being spent on our Christmas Number 1 record and subsequent music video - we're unable to bring you the Liv Bentley Interview we recorded. However, like all great businessmen Archie always has a trick up his sleeve and that comes in the form of the most impressive person we've ever had on the podcast in Mr Ed Jackson. A couple of years ago Ed experienced a freak incident when he accidentally dived into the shallow end of his friends swimming pool, leaving him paralysed from the neck down. Ed had to fight for his life in the hours which followed, having to be resuscitated 3 times from cardiac arrest in the space of two hours. Today we discuss his incredible story from being paralysed to climbing the length and breadth of the worlds tallest mountain. We also discuss his flat becoming the messiest go to place for house parties in wales, including Andy Powell moving into the sofa, his boarding school memories, big nights out in Bath, upsetting the locals in Doncaster, his Northcote road memories and much more....
