Flats and Shanks Rugby Round Up: Episode 1

TheLondonEconomic.com Sport brings you the Flats and Shanks podcast

LISTEN NOW – Episode 1: Wednesday 7th September 2016. Two quinoa addicts who think they know it all act as judge and jury over the rugby world and chat with the iron-thighed George North.


David Flatman and Tom Shanklin are two former professional rugby players. Having been flatmates while playing at Saracens, their friendship endured, and now they’d like to share with you bunches of views and thoughts and jokes.

If you’re missing the Colin Murray changing room ‘bants’ style of sports broadcasting, this is for you.  If you’re looking for a sport fuelled laugh, you don’t need to love rugby to enjoy.
