The boys discuss Shaun Malton's departure at the end of the season and wonder if three hookers is enough for 2020/21. We also talk about the fly-half situation with Nathan Chamberlain on his way north of the border next season.
There's also the news that Mark Irish (scrum coach) follows Jonathan Thomas on taking a new coaching role with Worcester Warriors next season. We ask will we see new faces at the Gate or will Pat promote from within to the coaching team?
As this episode was recorded just after the British Prime Minster announced the first stage of loosening the Coronavirus lockdown in the UK, we ask what does this mean for the Bears and rugby in England? Will the season restart in July or is it destined to never be completed?
