Episode 173 – Pulling The Team

Geelong Korea Walkoff

The Sydney Storm has kept Big Zacko stranded on dry land for another week. And Pies was a late arrival. But we managed to get through it all.

Zacko and The Producer recap the last couple of weeks in the NFL. Cover the big stories. Then Pies turns up to tip a big upset.

The Producer and Pies then take over and discuss the touring Indian side and the upcoming test series vs Australia. Australia have selected an interesting squad and there should be at least one debutant for the first test.

Pies and The Producer joined Erik at the ballpark for one of the Sydney Blue Sox vs Geelong Korea baseball games. Hilarity ensued. Hear our recap here.

And the final round of the Supercars was held in Newcastle. The Producer was watching all of the action and controversy.

Episode 171 – Only As Good As Your Last Race

Berrigan Cricket Nets

Melbourne Cup was a tough race. For a few of the imported and horses. And for most of our tips. Good thing we only bet what we can afford eh?

Cricket Australia is going through a major reshuffle. Pies and The Producer try and get to the bottom of all the upheaval. Where to from here for Australian cricket? And should kids bowl more?

Pies and Big Zacko watched a few games of NFL. And the cream is slowly rising to the top. Who is the under the radar team of the NFL right now? A team that may actually go deep into the playoffs.

The NRL is back into preseason. Looking forward to all the posts about teams training the house down.

And there’s a real rivalry going on in the Supercars. Scott McLaughlin vs Shane van Gisbergen.

Episode 163 – Week Three of NFL Previews

Minchinbury Module

In the third and final NFL Preview show we’re joined by Ben Sudderth III of BS3 Sports. Ben is a Cowboys fan but we won’t hold that against him. Have a listen to Ben’s thoughts here, and then check out his own show at http://www.spreaker.com/user/bs3sports.

Then we’re on the phone with Big Zacko to round out the NFL Previews and give our own Super Bowl LIII picks.

Keeping up with the NFL theme there’s some debate in the studio over the #StewpitTweetOfTheWeek.

To kick off the show we cover the final round of NRL, Mad Monday celebrations got a little out of hand for one club and we pick the winners of the NRL Finals.

At the end we rattle home with AFL Finals selections, Soccer, Motorsport and the NRL Supercoach winner in an absolute nailbiter.

Episode 159 – PPPPPP

Flags Up

The Producer has outdone himself. Or at least turned back the clock to when we were organised! Show notes, scores, ladders. It’s almost like we’re a proper podcast again haha.

Kicking off the show is Swainy recapping the Super Rugby Finals. The Crusaders won their 9th Super Rugby title. Confirming their status as the Real Madrid of provincial Rugby.

Heaps going on in the NRL including the Rabbitohs looking real good. The Raiders blowing another lead and the Bulldogs holding onto the championship belt for another week!

In the AFL on Friday and Saturday we had 5 games decided by less than a kick. Then on Sunday 3 games decided by 260 points.

Geraint Thomas won the Tour de France. Shane van Gisbergen won the Sydney night enduro at Eastern Creek in the Supercars. And Daniel Ricciardo is off to Renault.

And we finally look at our Supercoach side. We’ve limped into the bottom playoffs. But will struggle to place from here. Good luck to the top 8 teams in NRL and AFL. Don’t forget our NRL winner gets a great prize from the guys at The Dressing Shed.

Episode 147 – Triumphant Return

Cruise

It’s been a long time but the Parramatta Eels finally won a game. And that means we’re back!

Not only are we back, but our old mate Swainy is back to catch us up on all the latest Rugby news #SwainyRWC2019.

Pies has been sailing one of the seven seas and survived to tell the tale. And The Producer has been rubbing shoulders with Commonwealth Games athletes. Big Zacko is still MIA, much like the Bulldogs.

And after three weeks, we finally have a look at our Supercoach side to discover our AFL captain and vice captain have been out for two weeks.

Episode 145 – Outrageous

Episode 145

If you’re an athletics fan here for the Beki Smith chat about the Commonwealth Games, skip ahead to 1:27:00. We’ve tacked it on at the end of the show.

There were plenty of woeful performances over the weekend. But because a bloke used some dirt attached to some tape to scuff up a cricket ball, we never heard about any of them.

While the rest of Australia were outraged by the ball tampering issue, The Producer and Pies were watching the rest of the poor performances on the sporting field.

If the Parramatta Eels, Western Bulldogs, Ashley Klein, Bats and Balls NRL Supercoach side and many others thought they got off scot free, they should think again.

We’re here to add balance to the rest of the terrible weekends taken off the back pages by the Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith and the Australian cricket team leadership group.

Episode 143 – Easy For You To Say

Flame Thrower

Big Zacko and Pies have cracked it after one game and couldn’t be bothered turning up. Colbee fills the void and returns with a whole new set of names to mangle. If it wasn’t bad enough for Sione Katoa to have a broken jaw, now he gets to hear Colbee talk about him all episode. Join us on this rollercoaster of pronunciation which includes such greats as Andrew McCullough and Viliame Kikau.

Plus Brendan and Colbee discuss this season of Masters of Rugby League, Supercars, Test Cricket in South Africa and of course how bad Colbee is at Supercoach.
