As preparations for the new season continue, this week's Rapids Podcast hears from new assistant coach, Darren Bazeley, on his playing career in England, his time in New Zealand, and his wonderful working relationship with Anthony Hudson.

Marlon Hairston was one of the late arrivals in camp, having spent almost two weeks with the US national side at their January training camp in California. He talks to Richard Fleming about his time there, and what he makes of the new-look Rapids.
