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.

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.
