Episode 45 - Delon Armitage - Saving James O'Connors Life - Beating Up A Doping Official & Burning Down His Academy House

Today we're delighted to be joined by triple European champion and Ex-England international Delon Armitage to bring his incredible career to light. From his memories of being rejected by France U16s for being to skinny, to the desperation he felt being the only state school kid at England trials, to the brutal culture at London Irish, the day he accidentally burnt down the London Irish academy house, his public shaming at his first day of England training, Martin Johnsons weirdest moments, his various bans for beating up a doping official and getting into a fight with a Leicester fan and the day he saved James O'Connors life on the bus after a Toulon game plus much more....

The lads also discuss the Queens passing and its impact on sport, the premiership highlights from round 1 and how common it is in a rugby squad for one of the players to start dating one of the backroom staff inspired by the story unfolding in South Africa involving Elton Jantjies.
