Brian Moore: Rugby's Premiership is starting to resemble Football's Premier League

Monday, 27 May

We have a repeat of last years Premiership final as the top two sides in the country, Saracens and Exeter, both won their home semi finals with ease to set up a thrilling final in Twickenham on Saturday. Brian Moore is joined in studio by Harlequins second row James Horwill to reflect on the dominance of the Premiership's top two sides and discuss whether anyone can catch them next season. Exeter Chairman and Cheif Executive Tony Rowe joins the show to celebrate his side's fourth consecutive Premiership final and also discuss his tenure at the club which began back in 1993. He outlines how he got the Chiefs out of the Championship and into the top tier of English rugby and also how he manages to turn a profit at the club when so many other clubs throughout Europe struggle to do so. In the Pro 14, Leinster retained their title in front of a record final crowd at Celtic Park, former hooker Shane Byrne explains why his old side were more relieved than anything else to have beaten Glasgow to retain their title. Bristol coach Pat Lam explains how he plans to beat England with the Barbarians this weekend and gives an insight into how you coach a team of World class talent on just a week's notce. We also get James' thoughts on his Harlequins teammates Joe Marler and Kyle Sinckler potentially lining up opposite each other this weekend, the future of young Quins fly half Marcus Smith and what James plans to do next after announcing he will retire at the end of the season See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
