#RugbyChat EP18 – Do Players Expect Too Much?

This week on #RugbyChat I talk about International Rugby, Aviva Premiership player welfare, the Australian conference in Super Rugby and European Rugby Champions Cup.

Below is the video of my chat on YouTube but first here are the 5 Questions that we discussed:

Q1 With wages going up quicker that the salary cap in the Aviva Premiership & only 1 club making a profit, are players expecting too much?
Q2 With 7 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses in 2017, are the Springboks on the up or down heading to the Rugby World Cup?
Q3 There are 5 ex-All Blacks rumoured to be trying to qualify for Pacific Island sides for the Rugby World Cup in Japan, what are you thoughts on playing for more that one country?
Q4 Brad Thorn is clearing out some experience at the Reds, is this the right move with Australia struggling to retain talent?
Q5 With European rugby back this weekend, which clashes are you looking forward to?

If you’d like to listen rather than watch there’s also the podcast which is also on iTunes:

We always finish #RugbyChat on Twitter with a prediction poll, here’s this week’s:
