Watch the latest edition of Rugby League Back Chat now on

Host Dave Woods is joined by Rugby League World Editor-in-Chief Matt Shaw, Chairman of Newcastle Thunder Mick Hogan and Editor of League Express Martyn Sadler.

The woes continue for Leeds Rhinos as Warrington Wolves head for Wembley, but should we say goodbye this big stage? Back Chat apologises to Steve McNamara – he is a good coach after all. With a foot in both camps, Newcastle Thunder chief Mick Hogan tells how rugby union is in dire financial straits while League is a much better bet. And it’s time for the 8’s, who would you see as the team to give Leeds their Super League marching orders?

Rugby League Back Chat, sponsored by, is broadcast weekly on FreeSports TV, which can be found at Channel 95 on Freeview, 422 on Sky and 130 on Virgin Media.
