286 – NRL GF, EPL, World Cup Qualifiers, NFL, Horse Racing, IPL & MLB

The Producer put Pies on leave due to him being too pro Penrith and Erik Nielsen joins the show.

In the NRL GF the Panthers got the job done against the Rabbits but was Nathan Cleary really the best player on the field? The Producer can’t work out why Referees get tagged at pedantic when players constantly break rules. Former West Tigers player Benji Marshall has retired and the Tigers have changed their logo and Erik gives his opinion.

Brighton keep on getting points in the EPL and sit 6th going into International Break. Liverpool and Man City had a draw and only 2pts separate the top 6 teams.

International Break means World Cup Qualifiers. Can Demark and Australia get one step closer to locking in their place in the World Cup?

In the NFL the Bucks got the win over the Patriots in the Tom Brady Cup. The Cardinals are on fire as the only undefeated team and destroyed the Rams. While the Giants got their first win of the season. Can they make a run to the playoffs?

Lastly Erik talks about the MLB playoffs and makes his predictions on who will go all the way. Erik then tells the Padres what they have to do in order to go to the next level. Will they listen?
