Great Listen to Ellis Rugby Peter Winterbottom Podcast

It is a fascinating listen. Peter covers his career including the highs of back-to-back Grand Slams in 1991 and 1992 and a further Grand Slam in 1995. In addition, the disappointment of defeat in the 1991 Rugby World Cup Final against Australia. In addition he talks about the Lions Tours in 1983 and 1993, including the incident with Wade Dooley not being allowed to return to the tour following a family bereavement.
He doesn’t shy away from any issues, covers the lows of his career when he fell out of love with the game. As well as his many highs in the game. Interesting listen for players, coaches and fans of the game
