To mark the 100th episode of ‘Rugby Reloaded’ we have a special interview with David Hinchliffe, Labour MP for Wakefield from from 1987 to 2005, one of the founders of the All Party Parliamentary Rugby League Group, and author of ‘Rugby’s Class War’. We talked about his time in parliament, his attempt to outlaw rugby union discrimination against league, and his thoughts on rugby league today and its ‘deference’ problem.

For more on the history of rugby and the other football codes, take a look at (which also has show notes and links for this episode) and follow me on Twitter at @collinstony.
