My name is Graeme Forbes and I run The Dead Ball Area, a website and Youtube channel dedicated to Rugby Analysis. During the global lockdown I decided to make a short series podcast discussing what changes to the game people would like to see made. The podcasts will be released Sundays and Wednesdays throughout May 2020.
