Pies and The Producer are back with a more concise show this week. With Pies powered by Beer Cartel Advent Calendar, there's still heaps of sport going on during the holiday season.

The NFL has had some blockbuster games. We previewed the 49ers v Ravens last week and it didn't disappoint with defence dominating for most of the game. The Ravens got the win, but the 49ers aren't losing many admirers. The Patriots are in danger and Pies still likes the Seahawks.

Australia wrapped up the two test series against Pakistan with another innings victory. David Warner's 335* was the main talking point. Did Australia declare too early, too late? Can't we just admire great accomplishments? Here's hoping New Zealand fresh off the series victory over England can put up more of a fight.

In the EPL Man City gave up points at Newcastle while Leicester and Liverpool won again. City made up for it with a mid-week beat down of Burnley.

BS went to Parramatta Raceway on the weekend and reports on motorsport from Australia and around the world including some changes to Supercars and Formula 1.

Plus we rattle through some of the other sports including Parramatta re-signing Dylan Brown and the latest on Latrell Mitchell exercising his rights under the NRL rules.

Nov 27, 2019

Pies and The Producer are back after another week off and they catch up like it's been two months. No Ma'am Basketball, Kayak Fishing and great cricket victories are on the agenda early before the real sport gets a going over.

Australia beat Pakistan by an innings and 5 runs in the first test. Steve Smith proved that he is in fact mortal. While the best? bat in the team made his maiden ton. In the end it was a comfortable beat down, but Pakistan could be headed in the right direction.

The NFL season is heating up with some influential games last week and also coming on the weekend. The highlights of week 12 were the 49ers and Ravens stamping their authority over pretty good teams. This brings us to the epic 49ers at Ravens game this weekend. The Bills at Cowboys game also has the potential to serve as a pointer to the playoffs.

In the EPL Liverpool keep winning late. All eyes will be on Anfield this weekend and The Producers' Brighton take on the might of Liverpool.

Scott McLaughlin* wrapped up the Supercars title in Newcastle and DJR Penske* came out on top in the teams championship also. Plenty to be said about all of this moving forward.

The Latrell Mitchell saga continues with the news that Valentine Holmes, cut by the New York Jets, signed with the North Queensland Cowboys. It appears to be down to the Gold Coast and West Tigers. Who will blink first? Can the Titans be the making of Latrell? And vice versa perhaps...

The Producer's laptop update was only slightly slower than the Melbourne Cup but we got there. We're a week late, but better late than never eh?

A week after the fact we recap the Rugby World Cup Final and the Melbourne Cup. And find out how Never Listen, as tipped on Episode 214, fared in the Oaks.

Take stock of how the NFL season is going. Including yet another team running it straight through the middle of the Chiefs Defence. And the Seahawks and 49ers played a classic on Monday Night Football.

Liverpool beat Manchester City 3-1 and are 8 points clear at the top after 12 games. Can anyone stop the Reds this year?

Controversy continues as the fall out from Bathurst rages on. Scott McLaughlin stripped of Pole, but what does that even mean weeks after he won the race?!

Australia contemplate a bunch of out of form batsmen for the test series vs Pakistan.

And November 1 came and went and very big names have signed on for 2021. Pies and BS debate the merits of Latrell Mitchell and whether they'd want him at the Eels.

Swainy is on the the phone as he and The Producer preview the Rugby World Cup Final.

Pies is a late inclusion and we discuss NFL, the big races on Cox Plate Day and try to find a winner on Derby Day.

Plus heaps more sport including Scott McLaughlin's big crash on the Gold Coast.

Oct 25, 2019

Pies worked all weekend and with Mendy back in arbitration The Producer is stuck on his own as the only person who watched any sport.

Lucky we have Swainy to bail us out. And bailing out is exactly what Australian Rugby needs as the Wallabies limped to a disappointing Quarter Final exit at the hands of England. In the other quarters New Zealand flexed their muscles over Ireland, South Africa were too strong for plucky Japan and Wales were a tad lucky to get over the top of France.

In Horse Racing we recap Yes Yes Yes' win in The Everest and Mer De Glace's powerful win in the Caulfield Cup and we look ahead to the Cox Plate.

The NBA kicked off with a win for the defending champions Toronto Raptors and a loss to the LA Lakers. Pies wonders whether #LakersDeathRide is a tad harsh. For now it stays but if you have a better idea, let us know.

Plus heaps more.

Oct 15, 2019

Mendy has followed Team Orders and joined us in the studio following his latest pay dispute.

Joining us via satellite is Swainy to discuss the Rugby World Cup. Everyone's second team Japan have made it to the Quarter Finals and they are a live chance to beat South Africa. The Wallabies are up against it with a match up with England but anything can happen when Eddie Jones is coaching in a big game.

Then a second satellite hook up as we welcome Mark Townsend for the first time. Mark is on the line to preview the NBA Season. Mark is a long time Washington fan so he can empathise with Pies over his New York Knicks struggles. But this is about the rest of the league. Pies and Mark discuss the Battle for LA, how the Warriors will rebound from the loss of Durant and Thompson and if the Raptors can sustain a title defence. Plus Pies drops a bombshell by tipping a big name to miss the playoffs.

In the NFL the Rams are losing touch with the NFC West leaders, The Saints may be the real deal and Pies drops his second bombshell of the episode.

Bathurst 1000 wasn't without its own controversy. BS and Mendy go head to head over Team Orders.

We cast our eyes over The Everest barrier draw, The Producer tips us a winner in the Caulfield Cup, Victoria produced a road in the first round of the Sheffield Shield.

Plus all of the random sports Mendy has watched including darts, volleyball, snooker, surfing and India having a curling team!

The Roosters have gone back to back after one of the most gripping and controversial grand finals in recent memory. The refs, the tactics, the Churchill medal, the interviews. Everywhere you look there's controversy. And after it's all said and done. Sydney Roosters are still the premiers and Bats and Balls Championship belt holders.

Swainy joins us via satellite to discuss the Rugby World Cup. Japan have done it again. Can they finish it off and make the quarter finals? The Wallabies are taking some chances and looking a bit better. Plus heaps more.

The NFL is about as confusing as it's ever been. The 49ers and Patriots are the only undefeated teams. There's a chasing pack, but no great form.

In the EPL Liverpool are now 8 points clear at the top after Man City gave up two goals at home. Kicking off the weekend was Brighton putting 3 past Tottenham after Hugo Lloris dislocated his elbow.

Plus The Producer revs up our engines for the Bathurst 1000 Supercars. It's setting up for another intriguing race.

Oct 2, 2019

We kick off with an NRL Grand Final preview. Everyone's? second team the Canberra Raiders have made it all the way to the decider to take on the best team money can buy Sydney Roosters.

We're joined via satellite by Swainy to catch up on all the latest in Rugby World Cup. Japan have once again rocked the Rugby World. Can they keep it up? The Wallabies suffered a loss at the hands of Wales. Can they bounce back?

Richmond dominated GWS in the AFL Grand Final. After a tight first quarter, Richmond tightened the screws and the Giants couldn't go with them. Dustin Martin was the runaway Norm Smith medallist. But the biggest story had to be Marlion Pickett. On debut in a GF. What a story!

Plus we catch up with NFL, EPL and F1.

Sep 26, 2019

We chose the busiest time in the sporting calendar to take holidays. But we're back just in time for the biggest games. The Producer has been touring Las Vegas and Los Angeles and Pies has been fishing on Lake Macquarie. But we're back for the pointy end of the season.

In the last month hell has frozen over as BS goes into bat for the NRL referees. While we were gone Parra beat Manly to get into 5th. Played their GF in the first week of the finals against the Broncos. And then went out without a whimper in Melbourne. The Storm, Roosters, Raiders and Rabbitohs are left standing, as it should be.

In the AFL Pies almost burst a valve watching the last quarter of the Preliminary Final between GWS and Collingwood. The Giants are into their first ever Grand Final and BS is on board with the local team too. Come down to the AFL GF live site at Cathy Freeman Park, Olympic Park this Saturday!

The Rugby World Cup has kicked off in Japan with some fairly predictable results.

The NFL is three weeks in. The Daniel Jones era has begun in New York. And the Rams are winning, but could look better.

Plus we catch up on some of the other sports we missed including EPL, F1, FIBA World Cup and The Ashes Cricket.

It's Father's Day so Pies gets his Dad on the phone to talk about the Panthers season fizzling out. Rod also stayed up to watch Ben Stokes carry England to victory in the third Ashes test.

Then Pies has Lobby from League By The Fireplace on the phone to talk about the run to the NRL Finals. Lobby is a Raiders fan and with Canberra currently sitting in third he has reason to be excited.

Big Mendy is driving around Western USA so Pies felt compelled to come back. And not only that, Big Zacko has returned following a successful soccer coaching season.

Not only do we discuss NRL and AFL, But The Producer pre-recorded segments with Swainy on Rugby and Mendy on the Darts International in Melbourne.

Aug 15, 2019

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.

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.

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.

The Producer and Mendy recap all the sports action from the weekend.

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.

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.

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.
