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...

Pies and The Producer in studio this week with a couple of calls via mobile telephone. Swainy kicks off the show with Rugby. Swainy was the caller for the epic Argentina win over the All Blacks. Plus we recap the Wallabies draw with the Pumas. And we look ahead to an exciting last two weeks of the Tri Nations. Then we recap a disappointing State of Origin series for NSW. Freddy Fittler was clearly outcoached by Wayne Bennett. But does it run deeper than that? Is Cleary the half to lead them? Are the forwards that good? And how good was it to see DCE lift the trophy?! Tottenham are gonna win...

After a double Grand Final weekend, there's always a let down. And no amount of rep Rugby League can get us out of it. In any case Pies and The Producer are back with a special call in from Swainy to discuss game 1 of the State of Origin, recap the Melbourne Cup and the rest of the Spring Carnival and the last two Bledisloe Cup games. Plus heaps more including the AFL Trade Period, the upcoming cricket season, NFL and EPL. 0:00:00 - State of Origin 0:41:00 - NFL 0:46:00 - EPL 0:50:00 - Horse Racing 0:58:00 - Rugby with Swainy 1:27:00 - AFL & Cricket Part of the No Phony Podcast Network...

Pies and the Producer are joined by a very special guest Astro. He's taken NRL Twitter by storm this year. Alienating Broncos and Eels fans and joining in the conversation in a big way. We recap the NRL Grand Final in which Melbourne were far too good for Penrith and the AFL Grand Final in which Geelong led early but Richmond came out on top, going away in the final quarter. We also talk hoops and dive into the world of the USAFL, Australian Rules played in the USA. It was a growth sport in the US before COVID-19 hit. Hopefully Astro can get another kick shortly. All that and more on a very...

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...

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...

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 preview Geelong vs Richmond AFL Grand Final.

Swainy is back to review the two tests between the Wallabies and All Blacks in New Zealand. Australia secured a famous draw in Wellington and could well have won the game. And then the All Blacks did what the All Blacks do at Eden Park. Plus we take a look at the Shute Shield ahead of the Elimination Finals this week at Pittwater Park.

Erik is on the line to talk about the MLB Playoffs and the upcoming World Series between Texas' own LA Dodgers and the Tampa Bay Rays. Tampa quietly going about becoming Title Town USA.

Shane van Gisbergen and Garth Tander won the Bathurst 1000. BS was uncontrollable at Mendy's barbecue Sunday afternoon. It's been a long time coming but the Giz has finally scaled The Mountain. Scott McLaughlin won the driver's championship and celebrated in style tearing up the victory lap in what could be a farewell to Australian racing as he takes up a drive in IndyCar next week.

And BS had a great day on the punt so we talk a little horse racing after Caulfield Cup and Everest Day. Pies is probably backing another 3yo in the Cox Plate.
