Well this week Sarah and I reveal our highlights (and some lowlights) of the 2012 season. We try not to get too down about the lowlights, or the fact that the season has ended. Instead we look ahead to transfers and the unique charms of the off-season (that’s code for ‘cross). Anyway, it’s a bloody good episode and well worth the listen, so go on, have a listen.
