We're joined by a very special guest. All the way from the USA it's Zach Bahner of Auctionable Offense Podcast to talk all things NFL. Zach lives and breathes NFL and it's great to have him on to preview the NFL season.

Our old mate Swainy is back and it's hard times for the Wallabies. Another crushing defeat at the hands of the All Blacks. Can we see a silver lining to this cloud?

Colbee opens the show previewing the last Masters of Rugby League module at Minchinbury this weekend. Should be a cracking afternoon down at Federation Forest with the first game of the Indigenous Masters team.

NRL, AFL and Soccer are on at the back end of this episode and by then we'd had a few beers. The Producer has another rant of sorts and Pies unleashes on Dragons fans.

The NFL season is just around the corner and we're joined by our favourite Crazy Canadian Cookie for the first of our NFL preview shows. Changing it up a bit this year and giving our guests more rope during the NFL previews. Have a listen to Cookie and the next few guests to have some idea about the upcoming NFL season.

The NRL and AFL Finals are just around the corner. We recap the last round and preview the final round in AFL and the penultimate round of NRL.

Swainy is back to recap the All Blacks second half demolition of the Wallabies in Bledisloe Cup game 1. It's hard to see the tables turning at Fortress Eden Park in the next game.

Brighton & Hove Albion beat Manchester United in the English Premier League. The Producer can't be more happy. Meanwhile Liverpool might actually have the team to challenge City at the top.

Plus we have our second Stewpit Tweet of the Week. It's a massive show with something for everyone.

After putting the finishing touches on a very exciting project (stay tuned for more info) we thought it'd be a very short one. But there's just so much going on in the world of NRL and AFL.

We don't have any answers to the mess that is the Panthers saga. And we have even less of a clue why the Dragons have fallen off a cliff. One thing we do know. The race for the wooden spoon has never been hotter!

In the AFL there's a log jam at the bottom end of the top 8. Teams that aren't the Tigers, Eagles or Giants can't string even a few wins together. It's shaping up as one of the better races to the finals.

The Producer has outdone himself. Or at least turned back the clock to when we were organised! Show notes, scores, ladders. It's almost like we're a proper podcast again haha.

Kicking off the show is Swainy recapping the Super Rugby Finals. The Crusaders won their 9th Super Rugby title. Confirming their status as the Real Madrid of provincial Rugby.

Heaps going on in the NRL including the Rabbitohs looking real good. The Raiders blowing another lead and the Bulldogs holding onto the championship belt for another week!

In the AFL on Friday and Saturday we had 5 games decided by less than a kick. Then on Sunday 3 games decided by 260 points.

Geraint Thomas won the Tour de France. Shane van Gisbergen won the Sydney night enduro at Eastern Creek in the Supercars. And Daniel Ricciardo is off to Renault.

And we finally look at our Supercoach side. We've limped into the bottom playoffs. But will struggle to place from here. Good luck to the top 8 teams in NRL and AFL. Don't forget our NRL winner gets a great prize from the guys at The Dressing Shed.

0:00:00 - Rugby
0:28:00 - NRL
1:04:00 - AFL
1:32:00 - Tour de France
1:36:00 - Supercoach
