The Good, The Bad, & The Rugby is a brand new weekly show with familiar fan favourites, Sky Sports presenter, Alex Payne, and former professional rugby players, James Haskell and Mike Tindall. Over the past two years, the trio have collaborated on the award-winning House of Rugby podcast and YouTube show that attracted almost 200,000 listeners and viewers per week, making it the biggest of its kind in the world.
The guys went beyond just being the faces of the show; they became it. For that reason, the team have decided to now go it alone and launch: The Good, The Bad & The Rugby.
The magic of the show is undoubtedly the dynamic that exists between the three hosts, its broad audience appeal, and the calibre of famous guests. This is a rugby show at its core, but offers so much more. There is no defining an episode, no silly gimmicks, it’s simply a collection of real and raw human stories, a rollercoaster of emotions slotted into an hour. Alex, James and Mike are now relaunching the show under new management, with a new name: The Good, The Bad & The Rugby.
Every week, the panel are joined by different guests, ranging from fellow rugby legends to TV and entertainment stars from around the world. Working together with the team at 21Six Sport, Alex, James, and Mike are planning to drive the show forward from being an exceptional sports podcast to a serious challenger for the number-one spot in the UK podcast ratings.
The first episode has launched and is set to be an absolute blockbuster, with England’s head coach, Eddie Jones, as the first guest. Each episode will go live on Wednesday afternoons, with rugby fans being able to listen on all major podcast platforms and watch the full episode on YouTube. Show highlights will also go out across the show’s Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram channels, and will be supported by live Q&As with the panel and exclusive rugby competitions and content.
