We’re back – with a second series!

The 2020 Betfred Rugby League season is just around the corner, and we’re delighted to announce that there’s a brand new series of The In-Touch Show, our official rugby league podcast!

To kick things off this week we’re on location at the Betfred Championship, League One, and Women’s Super League launch, which took place at Huddersfield Town Hall.  All a mere stone’s throw from the George Hotel, the very birthplace of the sport, some 125 years ago.

This week we are joined by Danny Ward, head coach of the London Broncos. The side from the capital came within just one game of defying all the odds in 2019 and avoiding relegation from the Betfred Super League.

After dusting himself down with a bottle of gin and some Smiths LP’s, Ward is ready to tackle the Championship, and lead the Broncos back to the promised land.

We’re also joined by James Ford, coach of the York City Knights, and the surprise package in 2019. They went all the way to the play-offs just a year after gaining promotion, and enter 2020 with a brand new stadium to look forward to – will they be amongst the front runners once again?

2019 was a breakout year for Women’s Rugby League in general, but especially for Courtney Hill. The Australian was part of the Leeds Rhinos team that completed a historic double, and also claimed the Telegraph Woman of Steel award. She joins us on the show ahead of just her second season in the Betfred Women’s Super League.

Another player to have had a superb year in the Betfred Women’s Super League was Castleford outside back Kelsey Gentles. Fresh from touring duties with England, we sat down with Kelsey to find out how the Tigeresses can go one better.
