The people involved in those historic sporting moments certainly do, and Sky Sports’ new podcast ‘The One That Got Away’ takes you closer than ever before.

Every fortnight you will be taken back to the thick of it, and discover the feelings and narratives behind the matches and moments that still wrangle with legends of the game.

In the first episode, you will hear from the former All Blacks captain Sean Fitzpatrick. He recalls the twists and turns of the 1995 Rugby World Cup Final between New Zealand and South Africa, which ultimately ended in an extra-time defeat for the All Blacks at Ellis Park.

Nasser Hussain goes back to a memorable NatWest Series Final at Lord’s. In mid-July 2002, the Home of Cricket saw India recover from 146-5 to overhaul England’s tally of 325, and Hussain dives into the detail of the flashpoints from that unforgettable day.

Brad Barritt returns to the 2007 Super Rugby campaign and the Sharks’ single-point loss to the Bulls after a crucial missed conversion and several chances to kick the ball out of play to end the match.

You’re in a zone, but in a very bad zone. An hour and a half ago, we had the Fab Five out, and we were winning the NatWest Trophy final, and we’ve now lost again. How did this happen? Because you’re a captain that cares, you know you’ll care about that for the rest of your life…

Then, crossing codes, Eddie Hemmings comes out of retirement to join Matt Elliot and focus on the ‘Wide to West’ Bradford vs St Helen’s match in 2000, with Saints playing their way out of their own half in the final minute to boot their opponents out of the play-offs.
