Bats and Balls Podcast

Pies and The Producer in studio with a bumper, but yet streamlined show. We've been out of action for a couple of weeks after The Producer had a COVID-19 scare. In reality, he had one too many trips to Guzman y Gomez. We catch up on the eliminated NRL teams. Where did it go wrong for the Eels, Raiders and Rabbitohs. And why do the Roosters continue to be such a shit club? Then we preview the NRL Grand Final and pick a winner between the Panthers and Storm. The AFL has been barely watchable for one of the team. But it's still going and we lament the departures of the eliminated teams and...

The great man Macho Man, coach of the DWS Fleshpuppets is in studio for the first time. You might remember him from his innuendo laden Supercoach rants. But the Fleshpuppet is so much more. He's also a mad Raiders fan. And he is hoping for a fairytale revenge for the 1991 Grand Final loss to Penrith. Also joining us is Hunter. Wearing his 1991 Dah Dah Uniforms Retro jersey for good measure. We recap the last round of the NRL before tipping the first week of NRL Finals. We gaze into the crystal ball and tip the first week of AFL Finals. Can Brisbane recover from going out in straight sets last...

Maybo is back in the studio as we cover our core sports in Part 2 of Episode 244. First up and the Panthers continue to roll on. The Eels continue to limp to the Finals and the Storm and Raiders are resting everyone. The DWS Fleshpuppets are into the Supercoach Grand Final and we have a couple of ripper voice mails from the great Supercoach. Swainy comes on to recap a great Super Rugby AU Final between the Brumbies and Reds. In the AFL Port Adelaide capped off their fine season by topping the ladder every Round. The Giants surrendered. And Richmond are looking ominous. And in the EPL Crystal...

Bats and Balls Podcast

It's a four man weave this week as The Producer and Pies are joined by Erik and Mendy to discuss all the sports that are in addition to our core range. Major League Baseball is close to the playoff stage. Erik breaks down the structure of the playoffs and where the series will be played. We've got California Bubbles and Texas Bubbles. And a surprise host of the World Series. Australia concluded the T20 & ODI tour of England winning the ODI series 2-1 after going down 1-2 in the T20 matches. Both series were a case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Plus we have a very cursory...

We're back for another week of sporting action and after the weekend of Rugby we had to give Swainy top billing. Melbourne Rebels clinched their first Super Rugby AU finals appearance with a last gasp try against the brave Western Force. That was followed by a ball tearer of a contest and another last ditch try in the New Zealand North vs South Game. In the NRL Penrith extended their winning streak to 12 with victory over the Broncos. SBW returned to the Roosters and in Pies opinion, they can have him. The Producer thinks Kalyn Ponga is unfairly targeted. And the Eels are back in the winners...

Pies and The Producer are back and ready to tackle another week of sport. Pies was away all weekend so much like QLD in the AFL, BS has to the bulk of the heavy lifting this week. Pies recounts his experience at the Yak Hunters Kayak Fishing Series Round 3 at Woy Woy. Then we're into the NRL recap and tips. Penrith continue to fire. While the Parramatta bubble has well and truly burst. Can they even beat the Warriors without George Jennings and Daniel Alvaro? Swainy is back as we near the pointy end of the Suiper Rugby AU competition. It's been really competitive rugby from the Aussie sides...

Bats and Balls Podcast

Our old mate Hunter is back from the UK to grace us with his presence. This podcast needed an injection of another footy team and Hunter's Panthers could be just the trick to balance the show out. On this week's show we cover all the latest from the NRL including the Panthers blow out of Scomo's beloved Cronulla Sharks. Swainy is back to talk all things Super Rugby.

It was Erik's choice this week and not surprisingly he chose 2005.

In the NRL Parramatta won the minor premiership, but Wests Tigers won the title and Benji Marshall became the most replayed player in NRL history.

In the AFL Sydney Swans beat West Coast in the first of two epic Grand Finals. But it took some Nick Davis magic two weeks earlier for the Swans to even make the big one.

England regained The Ashes and consigned Australia to 15 years of searching for the all-rounder to match Freddie Flintoff. Shane Warne took 40 wickets to keep Australia close.

And headlining the other sports. Tiger Woods chipped in on the 16th hole at Augusta to break the hearts of Chris Dimarco and Pies. Tiger eventually won The Masters on the first playoff hole and created the only image that gets replayed more often than Benji's flick. That Nike Swoosh dangling above the hole.

Makybe Diva won her third straight Melbourne Cup and completed the Cox Plate - Melbourne Cup double capturing the hearts and minds of a nation along the way.
