Grand Final

Episode 211 – Six Again

2019 GF Review Balter Young Henrys

The Roosters have gone back to back after one of the most gripping and controversial grand finals in recent memory. The refs, the tactics, the Churchill medal, the interviews. Everywhere you look there’s controversy. And after it’s all said and done. Sydney Roosters are still the premiers and Bats and Balls Championship belt holders.

Swainy joins us via satellite to discuss the Rugby World Cup. Japan have done it again. Can they finish it off and make the quarter finals? The Wallabies are taking some chances and looking a bit better. Plus heaps more.

The NFL is about as confusing as it’s ever been. The 49ers and Patriots are the only undefeated teams. There’s a chasing pack, but no great form.

In the EPL Liverpool are now 8 points clear at the top after Man City gave up two goals at home. Kicking off the weekend was Brighton putting 3 past Tottenham after Hugo Lloris dislocated his elbow.

Plus The Producer revs up our engines for the Bathurst 1000 Supercars. It’s setting up for another intriguing race.

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.

Episode 167 -To The Victors Go The Spoils

GF Day 2018

Another footy season done and dusted. Two of the more memorable Grand Finals played out over the weekend.

West Coast outwitted Collingwood but it took all 4 quarters. An absolute belter of an AFL Grand Final. The Eagles finally winning 11.13.79 – 11.8.74.

In the NRL Grand Final the Sydney Roosters apparently played with 12 men but still completely outplayed the Melbourne Storm. It was a huge performance from the Roosters, eventually winning the game 21-6.

In the NFL Big Zacko outlasted the rest of us on a public holiday Monday taking in all 3 games on FTA TV. The Rams are better than Big Zacko thought. The Patriots still have a lot of questions to be answered after their beat down of Miami. The Steelers may be finished. And the Giants are a loss away from tanking for a decent O-Line.

Episode 166 – The Deciders

GF 2018

Pies is back to preview the two big games this weekend. On Saturday it’s the AFL Grand Final between West Coast and Collingwood. And on Sunday it’s the NRL Grand Final between Sydney Roosters and Melbourne. It should be a massive weekend of sport.

But first cab off the rank, and the only sport with an international flavour is Rugby. Our favourite guest Swainy is back to talk The Rugby Championship and the NRC. Swainy is calling a game on Sunday afternoon so catch that game during your Grand Final barbecues!

Finally we wrap up with the NFL. All our teams won on the weekend. The Producer is glowing with the form of the Rams. Pies is relieved the Giants got off the donut. And Big Zacko is sceptical of the Titans record under coach Vrabel.

Episode 123 – It Is Written

Love Bats and Balls

After 29 and 26 weeks of NRL and AFL it’s all come down to this. The final game of the season. The ultimate sudden death game. It’s Grand Final weekend and it promises to be massive. Storylines aplenty. Cooper Cronk in his last game for Melbourne. Cameron Smith putting another stamp on his stellar career. Michael Morgan emerging from the shadow of Johnathan Thurston. The Richmond Tigers and their long suffering fans. New Brownlow medallist Dusty Martin. The great Adelaide Crows. Eddie Betts. Rory Sloane. What a weekend!

Plus we recap a couple of Masters of Rugby League modules at Belmont and Minchinbury.

And we dissect the week in NFL, and the Carmelo Anthony trade. Pies’ NY Knicks have finally rid themselves of Melo.
