Co-host of Bats and Balls Podcast

258 – Kicked Off

258 – NRL, AFL, Soccer, Supercars, Horse Racing, NBA

Pies is back alongside The Producer BS to recap the first week of the NRL season. The Roosters pumped Manly, Melbourne exploded on the season with a flurry against Souths and Penrith cruised against a gutsy North Queensland. And there were a couple of stinkers also.

The AFL bounces up this week. Pies has a couple of surprise finalists in his preview.

Manchester City are flying the EPL. While Brighton are staying just ahead of the relegation zone. But the hottest team in English football has been League One Burton Albion with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink back in charge.

In other sport Supercars go round at Sandown, Murray Walker passed away, the Golden Slipper jumps at Rosehill this weekend and the Brooklyn Nets are a beautiful team to watch in the NBA.

Episode 250 – Switch Bowler

250 – Cricket, NFL, EPL, NBA, Motorsport

Pies and The Producer are in studio to talk about the week in sport.

In Cricket, Australia won the first two ODI vs India putting on huge scores that the Indians couldn’t run down. Then in the third game in Canberra, India passed 300 and Australia fell just short. Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell have been in some pretty hot form with the bat, and for India Hardik Pandya is in career best ODI form.

In the WBBL Sydney Thunder came from third to claim the title after restricting Brisbane Heat in the Semi Final and then demolishing Melbourne Stars in the Final. If they held all their catches the score would have been even more embarrassing for the Stars.

The NFL rolls on with the 49ers beating Brendan’s Rams. And the Giants are on a winning streak to take top spot in the NFC East. Meanwhile Denver started a backup WR at QB after their whole QB staff went down with Covid-19.

In the Premier League, noone wants to win it. Liverpool and Tottenham were held to draws while Manchester City with a game in hand all of a sudden are back in the picture.

Pies has been all over the NBA Draft and Free Agency period. He picks his two big winners and makes some bold statements. How high can the Phoenix Suns go?

Then we rattle home with some other sports including Rugby, Supercars, F1 and Tennis.

Plus we go through the first week of NFL Football, tip all of next weeks games and talk a little Fantasy Football.

NFL Preview Coming SOON

Big Zacko’s NFL Preview

Zac is poring over the 32 NFL teams ins, outs, draft picks, coaching changes and shady equipment guys to deliver our first series of blog posts. While Big Zacko is putting the finishing touches on his rankings, we thought we’d share this video of his favourite WR.

Cheers,

Josh
