Podcasts Which Help Fans Make Better Weekly Rugby Predictions
For fans of rugby in Asia, things have never been so good, with the sport booming like never before on the continent and the internet putting the rest of the global rugby community in the palm of people’s hands.
One of the ways this is done is through the medium of podcasts, with some being run by ex-players and others put together by fans.
Here are some of the best rugby podcasts, which are so good you could even stand to make some astute betting predictions for upcoming games if you listen closely.
This is an invited post not written by Rugby Asia 247.
All these pods will give you the sort of insight that is hard to find elsewhere
Hong Kong’s #1 Rugby podcast, Rugby +852 keeps fans up to date with all the news and results of the Hong Kong Rugby Union Premiership and national XVs teams.
Join host Jed Thian and Grant ‘Boozer’ Beuzeval along with Richard Cooke as the three wise men pick apart the 2020/21 Saxo Markets Men’s Premiership for Hong Kong.
The EggChasers Rugby Podcast
The EggChasers are lifelong rugby aficionados Tim, JB, and Phil, all of whom have a wealth of rugby knowledge and can certainly dole out a solid betting tip or two for those who want them.
The great thing about this pod is just how down to earth it is, giving off the vibe of taking place in a cosy clubhouse once a tough club game is over and leaden limbs have been divested of mud and cold in the showers.
Plenty of this pod’s listeners are therefore the sorts rugby fans who like their tackles meaty and their betting offers with no strings attached, and who do not suffer fools lightly.
The EggChasers certainly deliver all that in spades and are becoming one of the most trusted sources of information and free tips for fans who want to wow their friends with sports knowledge or who fancy having a flutter on rugby contests kicking off all over the globe.
Plenty of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into the production of all these podcasts.
Blood and Mud
Similar in style and delivery to the EggChasers, Blood and Mud is presented by Lee and Josh, who have 200+ episodes under their belts and therefore have the format of their show perfectly fine-tuned.
As well as previewing upcoming fixtures there is a healthy dose of humour in this pod, mixing in player impressions as well as the odd singalong.
The Left Wing
Do not worry, this pod has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with the vagaries of Irish rugby.
This one is presented by former Ireland international Luke Fitzgerald and shines a light on the often under-reported Pro 14 competition, which means you will get an inside track that even the bookies might not know about.
