Round one of the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup is done and dusted, and joining Brian in studio to review the weekend's action is former England centre Tom May.
England ran out 40-0 winners over Georgia in their first Twickenham appearance since March and one of their try scorers from the weekend, Elliot Daly joins the show to look back on the win and discuss how this current crop of players have evolved since reaching the World Cup Final a year ago.
Next up for England and Daly is a match against Ireland who dispatched Wales with ease in Dublin. We discuss where the Irish could cause England problems and how they will cope in the absence of captain Jonny Sexton and centre Robbie Henshaw. As for Wales it's now six defeats in a row and Brian and Tom discuss the ongoing crisis in Welsh rugby after some supporters called for head coach Wayne Pivac to go following the defeat.
Scotland made it five wins in a row with a win away to Italy in Florence. Despite missing the game with an injury fly half Adam Hastings has played a major role for Scotland and he joins the show to discuss his own form, his relationship with Finn Russell and whether he is now the most famous Hastings in his family, overtaking his father Gavin and uncle Scott.
We also speak with Harlequins centre Rachael Burford after England's Women's moved to number one in the World in the same week of the 2021 World Cup draw, and we also answer your questions as ever and take a look at some of the work being done at grassroots level around the country in association with the Mitsubishi Volunteer programme.
