Today we're overjoyed to be joined by the greatest centre in world rugby in Australias very own Samu Kerevi, to help us unpack all the incredible action from the Autumn Nations Cup matches and also celebrate some of the most memorable, terrifying and of course hilarious moments in his career so far. We go through all the main talking points from all of the action over the weekend whereby we debate whether; its time for Alun Wyn Jones to retire, Why the hell Cheslin Kolbe is playing full back, are Scotland a team in decline, are Ireland the best team in the world, why are England so uncreative and frustrating to watch and have the french peaked too soon before the world cup? Plus Samu lifts the lid on the Wallabies camp giving us incredible insights to what Dave Rennie is like as a coach and the work he's doing to better the team, how close it got him to quitting the Wallabies all together, reveals why he's terrified of Manu Tuillagi and Eddie Jones, why he hates Ellis Genge and why he thinks Japan will boast the best league in world rugby within the decade. He also tells us the harrowing story of how he escaped a criminal family in Fiji followed by a Coup d'etat in the Solomon Islands and escaped to Australia where he's was given refuge and to finish off he tells us what his Starting XV would be for his ANZAC side in 2025 against the British & Irish Lions.
