Episode 46 - Schalk Brits - Sprinbok Drug Allegations - Refereeing Controversies & Knocking Out Owen Farrell

Today we're honoured to be joined by 4 times Prem, 2 times European and 1 time World Champion in Ex Springbok Schalk Brits to take us through all the craziness which has been unfolding in the Rugby Championship and the Premiership over the last week. Schalk has a theory on why the All Blacks keep getting the better of the officials decisions including against the Wallabies, discusses the possible positive impact the recent drug allegations will have on the Springboks, predicts alongside the lads who will win the championship this weekend and then takes us through his career's incredible highs and terrifying lows in a wonderfully entertaining fashion. From getting caned everyday at school, the trials and tribulations of a wrestling career, taking part in his schools brutal rugby initiation, fighting to put on weight to impress Jake White in super rugby, inventing the modern day hooker role, his regrets in not getting more international caps, the trials and tribulations of a wrestling career, getting beaten up by Bakies Botha and Victor Matfield, nearly playing centre alongside JDV, moving to Saracens to try and prove his doubters wrong, the salary cap scandal, the incredibly loose saracens bonding trips, winning all those titles, knocking out Owen Farrell and many many more incredibly entertaining stories from one of rugbys longest professional careers.
