As the Autumn Nations Cup fixtures got into full swing last weekend, we were delighted to be joined on the podcast by ex-Wallabies Skipper Will Genia to get his thoughts on the action which took place over the weekend and also to look ahead to whats to come. He reveals his thoughts on why the AB's are currently so weak and why every country would be 'licking their lips at the prospect of playing them', why Scotland are crazy to get rid of Finn Russell, Why he's been underwhelmed by the Wallabies since Dave Rennie took over and what they can do to improve, why the constant involvement of the TMO in rugby is killing the game both on and off the pitch, shares his memories of his greatest ever coach and why he wants to see him back in charge of the Wallabies ASAP, relives some wonderfully loose memories from playing for the Barbarians twice and the players who were on the best form, recounts the ruthlessness and borderline terrifying behaviour Eddie Jones exalted during his brief tenure as Queensland Reds Boss, shares his regrets of losing the series against the Lions, why his move to France didn't go to plan and the bitching he had to put up with, how he's disgusted he's still not an Aussie citizen yet despite playing for the country 110 times and why Mike Phillips is his worst enemy in rugby and much more.

Plus Ryan and Max update, us on all the action from the Premiership and reveal who they think are the 3 best brothers to ever play rugby and also share with us their combined Northern Hemisphere vs Southern Hemisphere dream teams.....
