Brendan had better things to do, so Josh flew solo for this episode.

He muses about all things NBA Draft, Wimbledon, US Open Golf, the Parramatta Eels shenanigans and a little Supercoach.

Brendan calls in via satellite to give his tips, if you're hanging on his every word when it comes to predicting the future.

What a massive week of sports.

We preview the US Open Golf to be played on a British style links course. Josh gives a few tips and talking points.

We recap the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

The NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the Chicago Blackhawks and Tampa Bay Lightning.

Josh recaps a great documentary about June 17th 1994 where everything happened including OJ's White Bronco.

Colbee stops in to tell a few war stories from the Masters of Rugby League module at Windale as well as telling a few tall tales from Brendan's time as a ref.

We wrap up State of Origin 2 and the magnificent victory for NSW at the MCG.

There's F1 and V8 Supercars on this weekend.

We catch up with the world of Twitter as well as Brendan stitching up Josh through the League by the Fireplace podcast.

Plus we spend far too long talking about Supercoach.

After a big weekend on and off the fields we're back to wrap up all the action from Origin, NRL & AFL. Even if Josh barely watched a game.

We pick the Aussie cricket side for the 1st test in the West Indies. And give live updates of the New Zealand victory in the 2nd test in England.

We try to come up with an answer to the FIFA Corruption proceedings. And how does Sepp Blatter still have a job? Yeah, poor timing eh?

Brendan floats an idea to fix the NRL schedule and give State of Origin stand alone weekends.

Josh tests Brendan's ability in the Spelling Bee.

And we've got your Supercoach needs covered.
