In a very special episode, we're joined via satellite by our favourite Canadian listener Ben from online and Nova Scotia to talk about the NFL, last weeks big games and the playoff picture as a whole.
We also recap the 3rd Ashes Test in Perth which saw Australia return the urn. Australia were so dominant, even Mitch Marsh made runs.
The Roosters have set tongues wagging again with a big money signing of Angus Crichton, 16 months before he pulls on a tricolours jersey.
And Pies has been watching some NBA. Including Australia's own Ben Simmons in Rookie of the Year form as well as the New York Knicks looking like a proper NBA team.

We've spoken about this episode on the show a lot lately. So The Producer has done his best to clean up the audio and re-release it as a bonus episode.

In this first of our classic episodes, Craig Bobby White makes his first appearance on the show. The Eagle is back to keep us all in check and Pies drinks half a dozen long necks of homebrew.

Some of the classic moments you can look forward to are: Speculation over Roger Tuivasa-Sheck moving to the Warriors. What do you have to do to get sent off in Rugby League? Recapping Jordan Spieth's first Masters triumph. Pies Stat Attack and his obsession with the 2015 Dragons defence. The origin of the Christmas Tree bet. And a heartfelt tribute to the great Richie Benaud.

Perhaps one day we'll release the outtakes. There's even more gold in there.

We'll be back next week after the Perth Test.

Big Zacko is a late scratching, but The Producer and Pies are here to recap another thumping win the 2nd Ashes Test. Shaun Marsh is making the most of his 9th recall. Nathan Lyon is spinning England out of it and they can't handle Starc and Cummins. Why not give them a fighting chance and bring in Mitch Marsh for Perth?
The Rugby League World Cup came to a close with the Final. Australia beat England in the Final. We discuss the tournament as a whole and the future of RLWC.
FIFA made the World Cup Draw during the week. Australia have an okay draw and the entire thing is pretty balanced.
Plus we flum our way through the NFL without Big Zacko.
