Re: Bitrates and broadcast media.
Although if anybody can recommend a decent Rugby Union podcast, it would be appreciated
Brian Moore does one (sponsored by the Torygraph). It's a bit short, given how much there is to cover - and it's got Brian Moore in it - and I get the impression some people don't like him. Whereas I do. And it mostly covers international, European level and English Premier rugby. But it's worth a listen - and he often has good guests.
