Episode 162: Central claim victory in the Rosario clásico, River still lead the way and more

The hundred and sixty-second episode of Hand Of Pod sees Sam, Peter and Andrés joined one last time (or so he claims) by Neil Clack, author of an actual published book. We look back on Rosario Central’s 2-0 win over Newell’s Old Boys in last weekend’s clásico rosarino, and consider where Newell’s go next, before reviewing the rest of the weekend’s action – and a very satisfying seven days for River Plate. The Argentine sides in the Copa Sudamericana get a once-over (except Boca, who only secured their place in the quarter-finals a couple of hours after we finished recording this episode), and we talk a bit about the incoming league structure and other annoying related things.
