The Ruck on tour: Jetlag, roadworks and the first match preview

Recorded in New Zealand The Times' Owen Slot welcomes a bleary eyed Stephen Jones from The Sunday Times, and a jet lagged Jonny Fordham from The Sun for the first Ruck on tour.

The panel bring you a flavour of the early days of the tour, hear about team bonding, impressions of the city, a detailed look ahead to the first match, and a comment from Jonny about the Kiwi press seeming a bit 'Aussie lite' which should make him very popular.

The Ruck will run bi-weekly from New Zealand, with episodes every Monday and Thursday. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
