Ben Ryan: England won't win the World Cup with George Ford at outhalf

The Rugby World Cup is fast approaching and we have a new side at the top of the World rankings. Congratulations to Wales for overtaking New Zealand and for their win against England in Cardiff which propelled them to the top of the list amongst rugby's elite. Former Wales and Lions prop Adam Jones joins the show to talk about the new found pressure on Warren Gatland's side heading into the World Cup this autumn. Former England and Fiji sevens coach is alongside Brian in studio, he runs his eye over Eddie Jones 31 man squad and says Owen Farrell should be wrapped up in cotton wool until the tournament starts, because England have no chance of winning it if he is not playing outhalf.

Tom May: This England squad is good to enough to win the most open World Cup in years

We're back for another season of Brian Moore's Full Contact and it's all eyes on the World Cup which is just 39 days away. Former England centre Tom May is alongside Brian to dissect Eddie Jones final 31 man squad for the tournament in Japan. The pair also analyse England's warm up win over Wales and what the benefits are of playing matches of high intensity so close to a major competition. As for Wales, they were the number one ranked side in the World for only a few hours before their defeat against England, we ask former Ospreys head coach Sean Holley if they're preparation is right heading into Japan. South Africa are hitting form at just the right time, their former skipper Bob Skinstad tells us how Rassie Erasmus has turned them into one of the tournament favourites in just over a year in charge, and we discuss some radical rule changes and player welfare following the decision to show New Zealand's Scott Barrett a red card during their defeat to Australia.
