Bob Skinstad: Eddie Jones man management is England's secret weapon for this World Cup
Monday, 2 September
The World Cup is now less than three weeks away and joining Brian in studio for the very first time is former Springbok captain and World Cup winner Bob Skinstad
Bob believes that in the past eighteen months a number of teams (especially South Africa) have proved they can not just go far, but win the World Cup.
Bob shares his experiences of working with current England head coach Eddie Jones who he believes is the best man manager is the game at the moment, and that he is England's secret weapon heading into the tournament.
Wales and Ireland played out a forgettable warm up match in Cardiff and both sides have now confirmed their 31 man squads for the tournament, former Leinster and Ireland second row Mike McCarthy discusses Joe Schmidt's decision to omit Devin Toner, and former Osprey's coach Sean Holley dissects Warren Gatland's squad, one which Gatland says is good enough to win him the trophy.
In the Southern Hemisphere, defending back to back champions New Zealand have named their squad. Former All Blacks skipper Sean Fitzpatrick runs the rule over Steve Hansen's selection and defends his side's tactics at the breakdown amid more allegations of cheating.
