What an honour it is to be joined by Michael Cheika, the only coach in history to win a major rugby title in each hemisphere and currently Argentina's (and Lebanon Rugby Leagues) head coach, for an exclusive interview to discuss his incredible career so far. After briefly touching on the current Rugby League World Cup taking place in the UK - we turn to Rugby Union whereby Cheiks takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the highs and lows of his career including; his love/hate relationship with Eddie Jones (including what Eddie was like when they used to play together and his infamous foul mouth), his fears for the future of rugby union in Oz, his incredible memories of his time at Leinster including coaching 'the best player in the world' in Brian O'Driscoll, his darkest moments when he was head coach at Stade Francais when they went bankrupt, his infamous aggressive viral Australian half time team talks and his thought process behind it, getting forced to stand down against his will as Australia head coach due to the ARU Chairman being a snake, his Pumas side nearly getting chucked out of their hotel in NZ for suspected 'drugs' in their rooms, why Sam Burgess was wasted by Stuart Lancaster, his thought process behind serving his Australia squad tequila before training, dropping people 'on a hunch', why Pablo Matera can be one of the worlds greats, why he loves to get involved in training with his players even if it has led him to serious injuries and much more....
