Pints, Scrums and Rugby Canada – Dan Tanner – #153

My guest this week is former rugby player, now rugby promoter – Dan Tanner.

This interview was recorded in April of 2024 and we talked about the remarkable tale of how Dan got into rugby, and what it was like to be a rugby nomad.

We talked about playing in Canada, the incredible end-of-season tournaments and the challenges facing Rugby Canada from the grassroots to the National Team, before finishing talking about 99Social and how Dan is helping to promote and grow the game in North America.

This is a brilliant episode full of fun stories and deep insight into the current Canadian rugby landscape – I hope you enjoy.
