With many of the weekly guests actively representing New Zealand sides, Aotearoa Rugby Pod gives listeners an intimate and unfiltered look into the way rugby operates in NZ.
If you’ve ever wondered who the most competitive player at the Crusaders is, which All Black is the most obsessed with their looks, or which northern superstars Kiwi players want to see involved in Super Rugby, the only rugby podcast with the intel is the ARP.
Whether you’re a casual rugby supporter, interested in the latest wide-arching developments in the game, or you’re a rugby tragic on the search for some in-depth discussion and analysis about our great game, the Aotearoa Rugby Pod will whet your appetite.
Aotearoa Rugby Pod launched in the throes of New Zealand’s March 2020 lockdown and has now cemented itself as one of the top weekly sports shows in the country and the only NZ rugby podcast with new episodes released regularly throughout the season.
