It was a thrilling round of Six Nations fixtures this past weekend. ‘In the Bin’ rugby pod were glued to the fixtures, especially that few hours on Saturday afternoon. We even have a Championship winner with a round to spare! Congratulations to Ireland, who thoroughly deserved it!

Guess which host was happier with the result…


While there is a lack of domestic rugby, fans could still enjoy the HSBC Canada 7s and that ‘ever entertaining’ Super Rugby. So your weekly episode of ‘In the Bin’ rugby pod enjoy covering those results, plus a special offering for you.

Rory Duncan Interview

First up this week, we have an exclusive interview with Cheetahs head coach Rory Duncan. In this landmark first season in the Guinness Pro 14 for the Cheetahs, we discuss differing playing styles, the weather, players to look out for and watching rugby with a beer. Is there any other way?

NatWest 6 Nations

Then ‘In the Bin’ rugby pod lead onto the latest 6 Nations analysis, and first we head to Dublin. Scotland were led out by Barclay, but they didn’t bank on an inspirational performance from Ringrose (see main picture). The ‘sea of green’ had a fantastic time, and next week ‘Operation Grand Slam’ is on!
In Paris, it was ‘Le Crunch’, but England crumbled under the pressure after paying the penalty for failing to stop France scoring. This failure handed Ireland the crown, with a week to spare.
Finally we go to Cardiff where Minotzzi’s magic was not enough to stop the North starring, and now fans see Wales second on the table.
We also look ahead to the final weekends schedule, when Ireland travel to the fortress of Twickenham in search of only their third ever Grand Slam. Oh, and it’s St Patricks Day. Just your normal weekend then (to be sure).
