It's our first World Cup Finals and we've brought in the A-Team to preview the greatest tournament in the world - Russia 2018.

Former referee and current junior coach Big Zacko is our soccer expert. Aussie Dane Erik has the best of both worlds with Denmark and Australia drawn in the group stage. Pies is a night owl and will probably watch every match. And The Producer has his own flair for the dramatic.

We run through every group, suggest some outsiders who have a chance to get to the knockout stage, and settle on an eventual winner.

Plus we run through the NRL, AFL and finish up the NBA Finals which was a 4-0 sweep to the Golden State Warriors.

Rugby off the top with our favourite guest Swainy. There's been heaps going on including the Waratahs exciting victory over the Reds in Super Rugby. Fiji have hit their straps in the World Sevens. And Ireland are in Australian for three tests vs the Wallabies.

Most importantly Swainy has joined forces with the Queensland Brain Institute to help us understand concussions and how best to manage brain injuries in sport. If you live in SE Queensland and would like to help, Please find the Queensland Brain Institute website for more details https://qbi.uq.edu.au/

State of Origin is back and New South Wales once again are on top of the Rugby League world. Of course this was only game 1 and we all remember last years capitulation after dominating game 1. But still, we should smash them in game 2 and regain the shield.

In other NRL news, Souths are good and Parra are bad.

In the AFL the West Coast Eagles extended their winning streak to 10. Melbourne had their consecutive quraters won run snapped at 18. And GWS showed the first bit of pressure in years. Is this the turning point of their season?

Golden State Warriors are about to be crowned World (NBA) Champions. LeBron James has carried his team, but they just never got over the missed opportunity in game 1.
