Former Canadian Hooker Kim Donaldson is joined again by Saracens & England Lock Poppy Cleall to review the season so far, including the Six Nations Tournament. If you want to know what’s going on in the world of women’s rugby these two have it covered. We find out why Poppy was seen with the largest bag of crisps (or chips) in the world. What it was like to play France in the final game of the Six Nations in France. Poppy talks about feeding off the energy of the crowd, which was more than 17,000 mostly shouting ‘viva la bleu’! She explains why grass roots rugby in France is providing a stream of strong athletes for the senior ranks making them a force to be reckoned with. Why do farming girls make good rugby players and who is ‘The Beast from the East’? And we also find out how Poppy is spending a rare summer off, and why Reggie wants to meet Kim. All that and much more inside scoop from the women’s game.
