This is great, thanks. Have found Flatman to be very funny, witty and sharp with his dry and quick witted humour, so it's great to see some insight into his Rugby and general life.

Didn't realise there was a whole series of interviews like this with Rugby players. Will be checking it out. Thanks, The Big Conversation!

Isn't it amazing that StepOffloadTry has exactly the same number of posts as The Big Conversation. Almost like they're the same person...

Hahaha - wish I had the nouse and know how to create a YouTube channel with Rugby content. Alas not. Love how Rugby is getting more coverage and interest from more mediums now. Need to get Rugby coverage to how it is in Super Rugby and the NRL to perhaps get an even greater uptake from future generations...

Really good interview. Flats writes really well- he used to write for the independent I think.
He is right through, we were cr*p in those years, lost in the wilderness!

This character's contributions (in both guises) are beginning to smell of spam.

Mrs Wiz spoke to him at the Prem final this year and told him how good she thought his insights in commentary were and how much she enjoyed his input. Lovely man was embarrassed!

It's absolute spam to drive numbers, to hopefully monetise the audience. Let's call it for what it is - otherwise why spend the time posting across all boards.

To be fair, I do watch some of the other teams' social media interviews also - starting to get into the podcasts as well with big Dunc and Andy Goode and there's another good podcast with Ugo Monye - think it's just called the RugbyPodcast or something like that.

I have to admit, BTSport are doing a good job with increasing the fun and analytical aspects of the game...Still a way to go to get onto Super Rugby/NRL media levels - but we're getting there.

Btw - has anyone got any other Rugby podcast recommendations at all?

Hahaha - I too get frustrated by spam - it has made us all cynical of anything positive these days...Alas, am genuinely just a fan of Rugby and a fan of the fun and skilfull side of the game - just love learning more about it (just when I think I know everything about the game)...

But I see where you're coming from. Just giving credit to things that promote the game well

Can honestly say Flatman is one of the main reasons I watch the Aviva Highlights with Durden-Smith...Their quips and witty responses are hilarious - they're so funny together - but Flatman's comedy is so sharp. So happy they were still doing the highlights after they were moved from itv4 to channel 5
