Watch as Harlequins flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis opens up about his comeback from a life threatening throat injury and The Rugby Pod’s Jim Hamilton brings a fresh look at England’s current state of affairs.


Catrakilis recently returned to action following a lengthy lay-off to recover from the injury and shares what his rehab entailed from the sixth minute.

Anton van Zyl, Morgan Newman and Howie Kahn makes special mention of an inexperienced Blitzboks team and their amazing comeback in the second half of their Cup quarterfinal match against Australia at the Vancouver Sevens. Watch that from the second minute.

Catrakilis is asked to compare the differences between the French Top 14, Super Rugby and the Premiership in the 13th minute.

Following on from the Bismarck du Plessis and Mohamed Haouas fist fight, Catrakilis lets the team on a car deal he had with Haouas, which led to him asking Fijian centre Nemani Nadolo to provide some backup in the 16th minute.

Anton explains to Morgan how the bonus point system works in the 20th minute.

The Six Nations gets the spotlight from the 21st minute as Hamilton provides a fresh voice to look into the current state of England’s form while also having a slight dig at Springbok Eben Etzebeth.
