                Ben Cohen, one of the members of the England Rugby World Cup winning squad from 2003, talks to Phil Williams about his career in rugby, and why he retired from the game to focus on his anti-bullying and anti-homophobia charity, the StandUp Foundation. In this wide ranging interview, you'll hear him say Manu Tuilagi should never play for England again after his conviction for assaulting Police officers; why he thinks the 'home rule' should be changed so Steffon Armitage can be selected for the forthcoming World Cup; and how he doesn't think England can win the World Cup. This edition of the podcast contains around an extra 10 minutes of the conversation that was not broadcast on Phil's original radio programme.
