Episode 237 – Send Offs and Sin Bins

Eels Cowboys Round 8 2020

Colbee is filling in with The Producer for the sick Pies.

Pies is publishing this without listening to the show. Who knows what stitch ups the boys have lined up.

Apparently there’s NRL talk including send off and sin bins.

Also AFL, tips at the end of the show, Rugby, English Premier League, Formula 1 and more!

Episode 231 – Asterisk or Gold Star?

VLandys Messiah

Pies is back in studio for the first time in months. Erik is still on the line via mobile telephone.

The NRL is back and the rest of the sporting world are looking on in wonder at the magnificent leader of men Peter V’Landys and what he has accomplished in such a short time. Alternatively, Australia is doing so well, anyone would have had Rugby League back by now.

Pies is locked in on Parramatta premiership glory, meanwhile The Producer is a little more reserved in his enthusiasm. Plus we answer all of your questions regarding coronavirus / Covid-19 return, the immortal Terry Lamb and home ground advantage.

In other sport the AFL are hot on the heels of NRL in their return to our TVs. Motorsports have modified schedules with Supercars on track for a return to action soon. And the NBA are looking at a Disney World Bubble.

Episode 223 – Balls On The Line

Katy Moses Manly Latrell Albert Park

It’s the 2020 NRL Season Preview show. Pies and BS in studio to discuss each team in the NRL. How they line up for week 1. We pick our Top 8’s including a very controversial non-selection. Then tell you why Parramatta will win it all. And we discuss NRL Supercoach.

First up we recap the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. Australia smashed India in the Final. Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney were on fire and the Aussie bowlers strangled India out of it.

And we finish off with a bit of Motorsport. Formula 1 and Supercars descend upon Albert Park, Melbourne for Round 1 of the F1 season.

It appears the NRL don’t care much for the great Thomas Keneally commercial. Controversial at the time, it’s now been scrubbed from YouTube. What has the world become? – Pies

Episode 217 – No Caveats

Warner Brady Messi James

Pies and The Producer are back with a more concise show this week. With Pies powered by Beer Cartel Advent Calendar, there’s still heaps of sport going on during the holiday season.

The NFL has had some blockbuster games. We previewed the 49ers v Ravens last week and it didn’t disappoint with defence dominating for most of the game. The Ravens got the win, but the 49ers aren’t losing many admirers. The Patriots are in danger and Pies still likes the Seahawks.

Australia wrapped up the two test series against Pakistan with another innings victory. David Warner’s 335* was the main talking point. Did Australia declare too early, too late? Can’t we just admire great accomplishments? Here’s hoping New Zealand fresh off the series victory over England can put up more of a fight.

In the EPL Man City gave up points at Newcastle while Leicester and Liverpool won again. City made up for it with a mid-week beat down of Burnley.

BS went to Parramatta Raceway on the weekend and reports on motorsport from Australia and around the world including some changes to Supercars and Formula 1.

Plus we rattle through some of the other sports including Parramatta re-signing Dylan Brown and the latest on Latrell Mitchell exercising his rights under the NRL rules.

Episode 215 – Frankie Does It Again

South Africa Melbourne Cup Fabinho Derrick Henry

The Producer’s laptop update was only slightly slower than the Melbourne Cup but we got there. We’re a week late, but better late than never eh?

A week after the fact we recap the Rugby World Cup Final and the Melbourne Cup. And find out how Never Listen, as tipped on Episode 214, fared in the Oaks.

Take stock of how the NFL season is going. Including yet another team running it straight through the middle of the Chiefs Defence. And the Seahawks and 49ers played a classic on Monday Night Football.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-1 and are 8 points clear at the top after 12 games. Can anyone stop the Reds this year?

Controversy continues as the fall out from Bathurst rages on. Scott McLaughlin stripped of Pole, but what does that even mean weeks after he won the race?!

Australia contemplate a bunch of out of form batsmen for the test series vs Pakistan.

And November 1 came and went and very big names have signed on for 2021. Pies and BS debate the merits of Latrell Mitchell and whether they’d want him at the Eels.

Episode 213 – Doing a Bert Hinkler

Kyrie Wallabies Yes Yes Yes Moses

Pies worked all weekend and with Mendy back in arbitration The Producer is stuck on his own as the only person who watched any sport.

Lucky we have Swainy to bail us out. And bailing out is exactly what Australian Rugby needs as the Wallabies limped to a disappointing Quarter Final exit at the hands of England. In the other quarters New Zealand flexed their muscles over Ireland, South Africa were too strong for plucky Japan and Wales were a tad lucky to get over the top of France.

In Horse Racing we recap Yes Yes Yes’ win in The Everest and Mer De Glace’s powerful win in the Caulfield Cup and we look ahead to the Cox Plate.

The NBA kicked off with a win for the defending champions Toronto Raptors and a loss to the LA Lakers. Pies wonders whether #LakersDeathRide is a tad harsh. For now it stays but if you have a better idea, let us know.

Plus heaps more.

Episode 212 – Team Orders

Rugby NBA Bathurst

Mendy has followed Team Orders and joined us in the studio following his latest pay dispute.

Joining us via satellite is Swainy to discuss the Rugby World Cup. Everyone’s second team Japan have made it to the Quarter Finals and they are a live chance to beat South Africa. The Wallabies are up against it with a match up with England but anything can happen when Eddie Jones is coaching in a big game.

Then a second satellite hook up as we welcome Mark Townsend for the first time. Mark is on the line to preview the NBA Season. Mark is a long time Washington fan so he can empathise with Pies over his New York Knicks struggles. But this is about the rest of the league. Pies and Mark discuss the Battle for LA, how the Warriors will rebound from the loss of Durant and Thompson and if the Raptors can sustain a title defence. Plus Pies drops a bombshell by tipping a big name to miss the playoffs.

In the NFL the Rams are losing touch with the NFC West leaders, The Saints may be the real deal and Pies drops his second bombshell of the episode.

Bathurst 1000 wasn’t without its own controversy. BS and Mendy go head to head over Team Orders.

We cast our eyes over The Everest barrier draw, The Producer tips us a winner in the Caulfield Cup, Victoria produced a road in the first round of the Sheffield Shield.

Plus all of the random sports Mendy has watched including darts, volleyball, snooker, surfing and India having a curling team!

Episode 210 – Yellow and Black

2019 AFL GF Tiger Army

We kick off with an NRL Grand Final preview. Everyone’s? second team the Canberra Raiders have made it all the way to the decider to take on the best team money can buy Sydney Roosters.

We’re joined via satellite by Swainy to catch up on all the latest in Rugby World Cup. Japan have once again rocked the Rugby World. Can they keep it up? The Wallabies suffered a loss at the hands of Wales. Can they bounce back?

Richmond dominated GWS in the AFL Grand Final. After a tight first quarter, Richmond tightened the screws and the Giants couldn’t go with them. Dustin Martin was the runaway Norm Smith medallist. But the biggest story had to be Marlion Pickett. On debut in a GF. What a story!

Plus we catch up with NFL, EPL and F1.
