This week on Bats and Balls we bring in the reserve team AGAIN as the Captain Josh is away. Nathan and The Producer go through the latest round of the NRL. NRL Refs were again in the spotlight after a few crazy Sin Bins and an obstruction call. The Producer also gives a big Hell No to Gus looking after the refs after his claim he could fix them in 6 months during his lunch breaks. The Producer fixes them in 1 episode.

In the AFL St Kilda kept the boys in the game with their bet. The Pride of Queensland the Brisbane Lions are now in a 3 way tie at the top of the ladder and should lock in a top 4 finish. GWS was very disappointing in the first ever Snow Game in Canberra.

Rugby Championships in Perth has Swainy all pumped up. Can the Wallabies win again this week? Shute Shield are into the Finals after some heated Semi Finals last week. Catch the double header on 7two this Saturday from 1pm.

Australia lead the Ashes 1-0 and day 1 of the second test is washed out. The Aussies will have some team changes.

We play back a few of our guest predictions for 2019 and see how they are going. Some are not far off the mark!

Lastly the Producer goes through the EPL and Brighton gets a massive away win to start the season.

This week on Bats and Balls we bring in the reserve team as the Captain Josh is away. Nathan and The Producer go through the latest round of the NRL. Head Trauma was the topic. Does the NRL even care after Sam Burgess is cleared of a nasty high tackle. The Producer gives his opinion on the Ivan Cleary Tunnel drama.

In the AFL St Kilda let the boys down with their bet last week. The Pride of Queensland the Brisbane Lions are now in a 3 way tie at the top of the ladder and should lock in a top 4 finish.

Rugby Championships finish this weekend in Perth with the Aussies against New Zealand. Shute Shield are into the Semi Finals and Nathan is backing Northen Suburbs for the win.

Australia takes a 1-0 lead in the Ashes with Steve Smith and Nathan Lyon dominating.

F1 has a great race at the Hungarian GP and the Moto GP was covered by Nathan.

Nathan's Random Sports was back. Nathan covered the World Championships Basketball, Darts, UFC, Cycling plus more. The Producer went over week 1 of the EPL. Will Brighton survive this season?

Lastly we accepted the open challenge by former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for a Handball challenge. The boys get off topic which leads to a new sports idea.

Jul 31, 2019

Pies and The Producer in the studio recapping the latest round of NRL. Referees are in the spotlight and hell freezes over when BS goes into bat for the refs. Media outrage goes into overdrive after the Warriors apparently got hosed by the referees. The Rabbitohs got out of jail and the Manly bandwagon gathered a few more fans. Pies has plenty more space if you want to get on with him.

Swainy joins us to recap the 2nd week of The Rugby Championship. Australia beat Argentina and South Africa came from behind with a spectacular try to draw with New Zealand.

In the AFL BS floats a smoky for the Top 8 and after assessing the fixtures, we get on immediately. GWS hung on at the Adelaide Oval against Port, Geelong got a much needed win in Sydney and Brisbane confirmed their status as premiership threats with a win in Tasmania over Hawthorn. The Hawks inaccuracy didn't help them.

In Cricket Justin Langer has confirmed Usman Khawaja and James Pattinson will start the first test of The Ashes. We try and pick the rest of the side. They can't bring Bancroft straight back in can they?

Pies reviews one of the great editions of the Tour de France Cycling race with Egan Bernal proving too strong in the last two climbs amid landslides and glacial shifts. Aussie Caleb Ewan won 3 stages including the final stage down the Champs Elysees.

And Pies gives us a couple of stories from the Henson Park Beer Footy & Food Festival.

Pies and The Producer in studio with Swainy via Satellite.

First up is a catch up on the NRL. Who's in form, who has bottomed out. And what are eveyone's run to the finals like? What's the team that can emerge from the pack and cause a headache for the top 3 sides?

Then we have our old mate Swainy back to discuss all that's been going on in the world of Rugby. The Crusaders were too good in the Super Rugby Final. South Africa and New Zealand were first up winners in the Rugby Championship.

We have a look into the crystal ball and try to figure out this AFL season. Consistency has been hard to come by. Who can hit form leading into the finals and win the flag? Can anyone from outside the 8 be consistent enough to sneak in?

Plus we catch up on the stuff we missed during our little break. Hope you didn't miss us too much.

Pies continues the tradition with the Tour de France preview show.

We discuss the latest round of the NRL. The Bankwest Stadium is apparently an ice skating rink. The Raiders can't handle the heat. And the Sharks forgot how to play.

In the AFL GWS might not have been hosed. The defending premiers are flying under the radar. And the Swans are coming, but might not get past the Kangaroos.

The FIFA Women's World Cup and the Cricket World Cup are getting close to the semi finals.

Pies and Erik are starting a weight loss challenge. Plus heaps of other sports.

Light up the sky with fireworks we've reached another milestone. 200 episodes! Who thought we'd get this far? Pies and BS are joined in studio by Colbee and via satellite by our old mates Big Zacko and Swainy to reminisce about the last 200 episodes and talk a little sport.

It's been a really fun 200 shows and we thank everyone who has helped us out either by appearing on the show, interacting with us on social media or sending us emails to help improve the show. Most of all we thank our families for tolerating us doing this weekly for the last 4+ years.

Cheers Josh, Brendan and the rest of the team.

Jun 19, 2019

Pies, The Producer and Mendy are back to dissect another week of wall to wall sport.

We discuss the latest NRL news and the most puzzling of NSW Origin selections. The Eels beat up the Broncos at Bankwest Stadium, The Storm dismantled the hottest team in the NRL and the Sea Eagles are looking ominous.

In the AFL the second of the bye rounds took place with one lucky tipster picking the round. Richmond once again got run down and gapped after leading at the first term. St Kilda came back from the death against Gold Coast... again. And the Giants outlasted a tough North Melbourne.

Amelia is back to catch up on the FIFA Women's World Cup. The USA machine rolled on with another strong showing against Chile. Can they keep it up against arch-rivals Sweden? The Matildas appear to be coming good. And China and Spain played out a beneficial 0-0 draw.

In the Cricket World Cup could the top 4 already be set? One of the crew certainly thinks so. Perhaps there's still a surprise or two left in the Cup though.

Plus there's Rugby, Supercars and NBA Finals and trades to finish off the show.

Jun 12, 2019

Pies and The Producer are back with an action packed episode.

In NRL the Roosters have lost three in a row. Is this just an Origin slump or something more? The Knights are flying high and Mitchell Pearce is staking his claim for an Origin recall. And the Panthers have started winning.

In AFL the Swans surprised most, but not The Producer with a drubbing of the Eagles on Saturday. Adelaide beat GWS in a cracker. And Carlton became the second team to win after dumping their coach. Patrick Cripps and Sam Walsh dominating through the middle.

In the FIFA Women's World Cup USA demolished Thailand 13-0. France were comfortable and Australia went down 1-2 to Italy.

The Cricket World Cup has brought the rain to England. In the games that got played, India beat Australia in the blockbuster at The Oval. New Zealand are on top, but who have they played?

Plus we finish off with Rugby, drama at the Canadian Formula 1 and Kevin Durant has blown out his achilles in the NBA Finals.

May 28, 2019

Pies and BS are back after a week off. No Mendy who is working on being mobile again.

In the NRL the Broncos retained the belt and are on a winning streak. The Roosters are on a losing streak. And the Eels are in freefall. Albeit, still in the 8 for another week.

In the AFL Freo and Brisbane played a cracking game on Sunday evening. The Giants thumped Melbourne and West Coast came from behind in Adelaide.

We have a look at the Cricket World Cup in England. Tip you the Semis, Finals and Winners.

No Swainy this week as he's rubbing shoulders with the powerbrokers in Japan.

Plus BS wraps up the latest in Motorsport including Supercars from Winton and Formula 1 from the famously tight Monaco.

Stay tuned next week for our Womens Football World Cup Preview show with a special guest.

Swainy calls in to discuss the latest Rugby news.

Magic Round in the NRL created more questions than answers.

In the AFL the Giants turned in a stinker and the Demons rose from the ashes to jag a win.

Plus there's heaps more. Literally every other sport that happened, Mendy watched.

May 9, 2019

Brendan is back to make it a twosome. And Pies couldn't be happier.

It's NRL Magic Round all weekend long up at Suncorp Stadium. Can the surface handle 8 straight games? Can Brisvegas handle a city full of NRL fans?

In the AFL and the Cats are still leading the way. While the Swans are running 18th.

In Soccer and what an amazing win to Liverpool in the first Champions League Semi Final. This show was recorded before the heroics of Tottenham. But now it'll be an all England Final in Madrid. In the EPL all eyes will be on Brighton to see if The Producer is right and they get unleashed on Manchester City this week.

Plus there's Rugby and Motorsport chat including night racing from Perth.

May 2, 2019

Scheduling issues all week meant we almost didn't get a show out. But instead of leaving you hanging for a week. Pies took it upon himself to carry the load one out. The jury is still out as to whether it was a good move or not...

NRL and the Panthers appear to be back to close to their best. A tight loss to Souths isn't terrible form. The Roosters and Storm got wins on Anzac Day. And the Knights outplayed Parramatta in Newcastle.

In the AFL Geelong are alone on top of the ladder with a wall of chasers a game away. Collingwood beat Essendon in a competitive Anzac Day clash, Brisbane won the Q Clash and GWS won the Battle of the Bridge convincingly.

In Soccer and Tottenham and Liverpool are both behind heading into the second leg of the Champions League. While Manchester City are still a point clear at the top of the EPL ladder.

Apr 24, 2019

Wedged between two long weekends and The Producer trekking all over the state we managed to record on Wednesday morning.

Lots of NRL discussion including the transparency offered by the Graham Annesley NRL press conferences. The Producer isn't convinced about the refereeing but Pies is very hopeful moving forward. But let's not bury the lead. Parramatta returned home to the new Bankwest Stadium. BS was up the coast but Pies was flying the flag and soaking up the atmosphere of a huge win over the Wests Tigers. #PARRAdise indeed.

In the AFL the Eagles and Giants had disappointing losses at home. Geelong stamped their superiority with a rousing victory over Hawthorn and St Kilda just may be the real deal.

Pies and The Producer in the studio with an appearance from Swainy via satellite.

First up it's NRL where Parra tackled their butts off but dropped enough ball to lose three games. Luckily for Canberra they only needed to win one! Plus the Storm machine rolls on and the Roosters are building.

In the AFL the Giants won at the Cattery for the first time. While the Suns continue to play nailbiters.

Swainy joins us for Rugby. Super Rugby has been fantastic this season. We discuss World Cup players being rested and we dip our toes into the Israel Folau eployee relations wading pool. #SwainyRWC2019 #OlympicSwainy

Plus there's heaps more including soccer, motorsport and basketball.

Pies is off sick. So the show is carried by BS and Mendy. No Swainy this week so the boys do Rugby on their own. Don't forget #SwainyRWC2019

The Producer, Pies and Mendy are back with another action packed episode.

Australia wrapped up the ODI series in UAE with a 5-0 drubbing of Pakistan. Seriously, how do you fit Warner and Smith back in? Plus Brendan brings back one of our favourite segments.

The cream is rising to the top of the NRL with the Storm, Rabbitohs and Roosters all winning. And the poop is sinking in Penrith.

In the AFL and the Bats and Balls battle for supremacy was a one sided affair with West Coast demolishing GWS. Can they repeat the dose in the Grand Final replay this weekend? Collingwood are flying after systematically dismantling Richmond.

Plus heaps of other sports including Rugby, Soccer, Motorsport, Darts, Surfing, Curling, Baseball, Basketball and Tennis.

Mar 27, 2019

Swainy joins us first up to discuss Super Rugby and the fact that Foxsports have secured the rights to the World Cup. #SwainyRWC2019

In the NRL the Wests Tigers and Parramatta Eels are the top 2. Who expected this?

Speaking of unexpected. The Aussie ODI side have now won 5 in a row and Aaron Finch has gone huge back to back.

The AFL season kicked off with a big win for the GWS Giants and a big loss for defending premiers West Coast Eagles.

Erik signed on for 13 years in the off-season. Unfortunately for Erik he's not getting $330m! He joins Pies for a season preview of the Major League Baseball Season. The NL looks very competitive this season. And there seems to be a few hjighly rated teams in the AL.

The NRL season kicked off on the weekend. We kept Big Zacko away from the show as everyone else on the mics had a win. Souths opened up with a win over arch rivals Sydney Roosters. Wests Tigers beat Manly at Leichhardt and the mighty Parramatta Eels beat Penrith at their home.

AFL balls up this weekend and we pick our Round 1 selections after previewing the season last week.

Australia moves to UAE for the ODI series with Pakistan and there's moves afoot for numbers on Test shirts. Good or bad?

Motorsport in the form of Formula 1 and Supercars revved up in Melbourne. Plus heaps more sports in the last hour.

Our old mate Craig Swansational made the big trek from the East to join us in studio for the AFL Season Preview. There's some big clubs in Melbourne looking to make waves in 2019. Can the battlers from Sydney and GWS stay in the top 8 this season?

Game 5 of the ODI series in India was being played as we recorded. Recap games 3 and 4 and marvel at Usman Khawaja making another big score. How can they possibly leave him out of the World Cup team?

Plus heaps of other sports including Rugby, NRL Round 1 tips and Formula 1 revving up again in Melbourne this weekend.

Mar 8, 2019

Old school show with The Producer and Pies in the studio. Not a lot of games on at the moment but plenty going on.

We're gearing up for the Cricket World Cup. Aaron Finch is working hard to keep his spot. Can he turn it around in the remaining ODI vs India? With Warner and Smith waltzing straight back in, someone has to make way.

The NRL has been in the news a lot lately. But BS gushes over the latest Panthers video. And we discuss a few of the trial games. Of course, this week, trials matter.

Brendan has been watching a bit of Super Rugby lately. It's taken 4 years, but Swainy's influence is wearing us down. That and the Rugby being played at the moment is very entertaining.

Manchester City have finally assumed their place at the top of the Premier League. Can Liverpool mount another challenge? And there's been some major upsets in the Champions League. Little Man Utd are through to the last 8.

Supercars are back and it looks like the Ford Mustangs are going to be very hard to beat. They dominated the Adelaide 500 and this season already looks very tough for the Holdens. Plus we look forward to the F1 starting up again in a couple of weeks.

The Producer, Mendy and Pies in studio this week. And we've got Swainy on the telephone hook up to talk about the first round of Super Rugby. There were a lot of close games and this could be one of the better Super Rugby seasons we've seen. #SwainyRWC2019

The Melbourne Renegades won the BBL Final, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat over the Melbourne Stars. Hot shots Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney 6ers were bundled out in the Semis.

Australia are putting the design of their 2019-20 ODI kit in the fans hands. You can vote on your favourite design at cricket.com.au

NRL Trials have kicked off with a comeback win for Mounties over Wenty, aka Canberra beat Parramatta at St Marys Stadium. The All Stars game was played on the same night. The highlight was undoubtedly Blake Ferguson's backflip.

In Soccer we're down the final 8 of the FA Cup and Brighton Hove Albion are still a shot at getting to Wembley. Can these plucky upstarts go all the way?

Plus there's heaps of other sports thrown in along the way.
