It’s the England versus Wales rugby union showdown on Saturday, the latest instalment in a rivalry that stretches across nation, class and playing styles. To discuss the roots and the history of a contest that dates back to 1881, this week’s guest is Huw Richards, rugby historian, journalist and author of ‘The Red & The White: A History of England vs Wales Rugby’. Huw examines the myths, legends and realities of rugby’s most complicated rivalry.
