On this week's RFU Podcast we hear from some of the key men in the record breaking Big Game 4, catch up with two Leicester Tigers with England ambitions in 2012, review a superb year for England's Women and get an update on the RFU Coaching Academy.

A world record 82,000 club match crowd witnessed Saracens beat Harlequins 19-11 at Twickenham this week. England Saxons pair Alex Goode and Andy Saull gave their reaction to the RFU Podcast along with Harlequins centre Matt Hopper.

Flanker Tom Croft and No.8 Thomas Waldrom look back at 2011 and forward to 2012, both awaiting the announcement of England's Elite Player Squad on January 11.

England Women's head coach Gary Street talks about a special year for his players, who finished on high with their series victory over New Zealand.

And former England coach Dick Best outlines the RFU Coaching Academy project launching in the New Year that will provide an unrivalled resource for the game's 40,000 coaches.
