The Producer is wrapped in cotton wool and plaster so he should make it through the full episode. We're back to cover all the sport. In the NFL it's a funny season. Are the Chiefs back? It's too early to tell but signs are good. The Rams are in a hole and the Pats could be the best team going round. In Soccer we've got the International weekend and World Cup Qualifiers. By the time you listen to this Australia will have played China in Sharjah. EPL is back this week and we give out tips.

Pies, The Producer and Colbee check out the lead up runs and try and find the winner of the 2021 Melbourne Cup. With the absence of many foreign raiders, Incentivise is the clear favourite for the cup. Can it get two miles? Who is the biggest threat? Can Colbee box up 11 horses and still miss the trifecta?! 0:00:00 - Lead up races and form 0:57:35 - Tips 1:03:20 - Colbee's Trifecta 1:08:30 - Off The Rails Winning Tips Colbee - Grand Promenade Pies - Incentivise The Producer - Persan Mendy - Grand Promenade Part of the Always Up Network Twitter - @batsandballspod Brendan - @The Producer05 Josh...

It's been a long time. But Pies is back in the Bats and Balls Studio with The Producer. After a short catch up we're back into the sports. In the NFL Arizona look unstoppable at the moment. There's a few other NFC teams nipping at their heels though. In the AFC no team has fewer than 2 losses which makes for a competitive conference. In the EPL Liverpool won the one fixture the fans look forward to every season. A 5-0 drubbing of Manchester United at Old Trafford no less. Mo Salah is the best player in the world right now. But Liverpool may still only be the third best team in the Premier...

Queensland is the centre of the Rugby League world with the announcement of the Dolphins as the 17th NRL club. And the Q Cup Grand Final decided in the final minutes. Plus the Panthers have leaned into their bad boys tag in the aftermath of their NRL Premiership. Not much player movement in the AFL Trade Period. Most notable were the lack of late trades. Soccer played out a big international weekend topped off with a home win for Japan over The Socceroos. EPL is back this weekend and we give our tips. The big horse races continue this week. At Royal Randwick we've got the big sprint showdown...

The Producer put Pies on leave due to him being too pro Penrith and Erik Nielsen joins the show. In the NRL GF the Panthers got the job done against the Rabbits but was Nathan Cleary really the best player on the field? The Producer can't work out why Referees get tagged at pedantic when players constantly break rules. Former West Tigers player Benji Marshall has retired and the Tigers have changed their logo and Erik gives his opinion. Brighton keep on getting points in the EPL and sit 6th going into International Break. Liverpool and Man City had a draw and only 2pts separate the top 6...

Pies and The Producer joined via Zoom by Mendy. We recap the NRL Prelims and pick our winner for the NRL Grand Final. Melbourne broke their AFL Premiership drought with a second half thumping of Western Bulldogs. Christian Petracca won the Norm Smith medal with a stellar performance. Tottenham played Arsenal back into form. While a Liverpool draw at Brentford was enough to top alone. There's a pack one point behind including Brighton! The good teams are emerging in the NFL. LA Rams and Arizona Cardinals have set up a mouth watering clash this weekend. And Tom Brady goes back to Foxborough....

After substandard performances Pies and The Producer keep getting selected for the big games. It's almost like they're mates with the people running the podcast. In the NRL Manly were far too good for a depleted Sydney Roosters. While in the other game Penrith held on against a brave Parramatta. In the AFL it all boils down to this. Apart from a shaky end to the season for the Dogs, Melbourne and Western Bulldogs have been the benchmark all season. In a season of turmoil, moving house at short notice, lockdowns, quarantines and footy, these two teams deserve to be there on that twilight...

The Producer is on the man shakes and Pies ran a half marathon. We're pumped for another week of finals footy. In the NRL all eyes were on the Panthers and Rabbitohs after a war of words between the coaches and it didn't disappoint. Wayne won the battle. Can Ivan get his troops back up to win the war? The Roosters got out of jail against the Titans and the Eels did enough to see another week. It had been staring us in the face the whole time. Forget ladder positions. Melbourne and Western Bulldogs had been the best sides in the AFL for most of the year. That they won their Prelims was no...

Mendy joins Pies and The Producer this week. The NRL season has finished for half the teams. Canterbury finished off a tough year with an inspired defeat of Wests Tigers. While the Corey Norman era is over at St George Illawarra. The Finals are finally upon us. Can anyone stop Melbourne? Are Penrith, Souths or Manly legitimate contenders? How remarkable is the Roosters finish given their injury toll? In the AFL we're down to the Prelim Finals. Melbourne have been the standard all year. Can they make the big one? Is Port good enough to make it? In an unpredictable season anything is possible....

While half the NRL rests for the Finals. We're pushing through to maintain our form for the big games. Brendan and Josh are back to review all the big headlines from the NRL. Latrell's reckless hit on Joey Manu. The Eels turnaround in form. And the battle for 8th. In the AFL Port Adelaide and Melbourne will "host" Prelim Finals, GWS held on for the slimmest of victories over Sydney and will play the disappointing Geelong without Toby Greene. And Western Bulldogs beat Essendon in the wet to book a date with Brisbane. Cristiano Ronaldo is joining Manchester United after punking the Red Devils...
