Warburton’s Lions Legends: Gavin Hastings

Rugby Union Weekly

Sam Warburton chats to Gavin Hastings, one of the greatest Scottish players to ever represent the British & Irish Lions. In 1989, Gavin helped the Lions to their first series win in 15 years. Despite being on the receiving end of a right hook from Australia’s Nick Farr-Jones in the second Test, Gavin scored a crucial try to level the series. He recalls David Campese’s famous error in the deciding Test and making the most of free champagne in business class on the flight home. Four years later he captained the Lions to New Zealand. Find out why he hung up on Ian McGeechan, which player taunted the crowd in Wellington with beer and all about a dodgy refereeing decision in the first Test.

Gavin Hastings on Les Bleus vs Scotland & back to memory lane

French RUGBY CONNECTIONS with Veronique Landew & Mike Pearce

I have a chat with Gavin Hastings aka Big Gav,  a two-time British & Irish Lion who appeared in three World Cups and in the Five Nations between 1986 to 1995. Gavin reminisces about his rugby memories playing against Les Bleus from his debut in 1986 in Murrayfield to the world Cup in 1995.  He was also pivotal particularly in Scotland’s impressive 1990 Grand Slam. Furthermore, he also shares his thoughts about the final 6 Nations game, in which his son, Adam is a finisher. Unmissable! Veronique is over the moon regarding France and Wales game but understandably, Mike is still reeling from Wales's cruel defeat at Stade de France last Saturday but on Friday, he'll wear his brand new Scottish Jersey, Enjoy French Rugby Connections, the rugby podcast with the gallic twist!
