Rugby podcasters Will and Michael Wood give us a round-up of Harlequins news…
The autumnal sunshine on a fine Sunday afternoon in the TW postcodes is the medium for the next instalment of our podcast updates. At time of writing, we have just finished recording episode 5 of the new season. A season now no longer new and having already thrown us its fair share of twists, turns, ups, downs, and everything else that goes with it. After a fine away-day performance in the opening week of the season at Newcastle, Quins have started the campaign incredibly brightly. Shining brightest under the Friday Night Lights against Bristol in Round 3.
The Miracle of Bristanbul reincarnated in some wonderful scenes in front of a packed-out Twickenham Stoop. Nothing short of glorious to behold. We then also suffered a close defeat to a snarling Sale outfit in our most recent encounter. With the Autumn Internationals coming up, the squad will be stretched thin, and we will see the depth at our disposal. Our women’s side have had a tricky few weeks in the defense of their title. Losses against
Exeter and Bristol and a hard-fought away win to Gloucester-Hartpury with plenty of rugby to come.
And as for Will and I? We have been lucky to spend some time pre- and post-game with the Quins Supporters’ Association, both in the ground and at The Cabbage Patch to watch games and continue to help grow our fantastic fanbase. Plan some away days to Castres and Cardiff, and enjoy the aftermath of some great performances in the Chris Robshaw bar inside The Stoop.
We also had the pleasure of meeting the club’s CEO Laurie Dalrymple after the Worcester game! And just had our first and rather spontaneous guest appearance on the podcast for the season. Very lucky to welcome our friend Dave Rogers who most Quins fan will recognize as the main behind the microphone and in front of the camera for the club’s in-house media. We are very lucky to call him a friend of the pod!
Season 2021/22 – Letttssss Goooo!!!!
