Episode 243 – Last Gasp Rugby

We’re back for another week of sporting action and after the weekend of Rugby we had to give Swainy top billing. Melbourne Rebels clinched their first Super Rugby AU finals appearance with a last gasp try against the brave Western Force. That was followed by a ball tearer of a contest and another last ditch try in the New Zealand North vs South Game.

In the NRL Penrith extended their winning streak to 12 with victory over the Broncos. SBW returned to the Roosters and in Pies opinion, they can have him. The Producer thinks Kalyn Ponga is unfairly targeted. And the Eels are back in the winners circle.

The AFL Festival of Footy 2 keeps rolling on. We try and stay abreast of what’s happening. Geelong and Port Adelaide keep winning. And Melbourne have severely affected their finals hopes in the last week.

Motorsport and the Italian Grand Prix was a win for exciting racing with plenty of lead changes. Actual safety cars and strategy were back in vogue and it was Pierre Gasly winning his first F1 race. In the Supercars it was a similar situation where safety cars and tyre selection were vitally important.

Plus the NBA Playoffs are hotting up, and the EPL and NFL seasons are back next weekend.
