Australia aren't touring South Africa but we do have India vs England and Bangladesh vs West Indies to talk about. Test cricket might be on the way back to relevance.

Tampa Bay Bucaneers dominated Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. The Chiefs couldn't keep the Bucs away from Mahomes and he was running for his life most of the game. On the other side of the ball, Brady was measured and protected the ball. And he also hit Gronk for two TDs.

In soccer Manchester City are almost home in the Premier League. While PSG put the cleaners through Barcelona.

Utah Jazz are on fire in the NBA. New York are a proper NBA team. And AD is out for a few weeks, leaving LeBron to carry the load for the Lakers.

We've sat Mendy out for another 12 weeks for a bit of cap relief so it's just Pies and The Producer in the studio.

Australia have cancelled the tour of South Africa due to the threat of the coronairus. The Aussies were concerned about the South African strain of COVID-19 and have pulled the pin. A shame for world cricket, but as a result New Zealand are through to the World Championship Final. In the BBL Brisbane Heat are in form leading into the Challenger Final against Perth Scorchers. A single COVID-19 case in Perth meant the Scorchers will now host that game at Manuka with the victors facing the Sydney 6ers at the SCG.

The NFL is down to the big dance. The final showdown. That's right it's Super Bowl LV featuring the Tampa Bay Bucaneers and Kansas City Chiefs. Tom Brady vs Patrick Mahomes. The GOAT vs the best player in the NFL right now. We're looking forward to a great game.

In the EPL Manchester City are on top with games in hand. Mancheter United are on fire and Tettenham have saved #PiesKnows for the time being with defeat at the hands of Brighton.

The NBA has been great. The Brooklyn Nets are going out and just scoring more points than their opposition. Can it work in the playoffs? Plus there were some buzzer beaters this week.

Rugby League is back in the media and we discuss the big stories around the NRL. Israel Folau testing the waters with St George Illawarra Dragons who have become the NRL version of a wrestling heel. Roosters have received $350k in cap relief by keeping Boyd Cordner out of the game for 12 weeks. Raiders players DUI and Bryce Cartwright training the house down at the Eels.

And we finish off the show with a bunch of listener questions. Keep em coming!
