Pies was away all weekend so we brought in Maybo to make it a three way with The Producer.

In the NRL the Panthers and Eels have started like they did in 2020. What can stop this Western Sydney NRL juggernaut? The Roosters are in an injury crisis and Manly are just terrible. Also the Broncos are above the Storm on the ladder. Should they be favourites this week?

In the AFL Western Bulldogs and West Coast Eagles played a great game. The Swans kids have started the season on fire. Brisbane were a little unlucky against Geelong and the Saints and Giants had heavy legs, Plus Pies finally has a good Supercoach team.

The F1 season revved up on the weekend with the Bahrain GP. Lewis Hamilton outlasting Max Verstappen for the win. Pies is watching Drive to Survive.

In other sport the Waratahs are getting thumped every week, Europe played 3 World Cup Qualifiers in the space of a week, the EPL is back this week and the Brooklyn Nets look unbeatable with the Lakers injuries.

Maybo joins The Producer in this episode after Pies failed his HIA test after poor tipping last week. NRL was mostly played in wet conditions and saw Parramatta get a big win against the Storm. Maybo's Broncos were handed another defeat. Head knocks and how Sin Bin should be used are still issues the game needs to fix.

Supercoach is back for the NRL. Round 1 of the season starts this week in the Bats and Balls Cup & Bats and Balls Mug competition. The Producer runs through the games and makes an executive decision on the two leagues. Can the DWS Fleshpuppets go back to back? I'm sure he will tell us.

The AFL Round 1 saw some upsets with Pies' GWS and Maybo's Lions both losing. The Producer's West Coast Eagles starting the year with a win. Are Richmond the team to beat AGAIN?!!!

In the EPL Brighton got a big win against Newcastle pushing them 6 points clear of the relegation zone. No EPL this week as the World Cup Qualifiers matches are being played.

Supercars were at Sandown and a broken and beaten up Shane Van Gisbergen wins all three races even with a broken collar bone. F1 is back starting the year with the Bahrain GP

In other sport the Queensland Reds are winning the Super Rugby AU and are up against the Waratahs this week. In Sheffield Shield Cricket the Blues look like a park cricket team after being rolled for 32.
Lastly after the rain in Sydney washed out the Golden Slipper it is being run this weekend. Golden Slipper tips;

Pies is back alongside The Producer BS to recap the first week of the NRL season. The Roosters pumped Manly, Melbourne exploded on the season with a flurry against Souths and Penrith cruised against a gutsy North Queensland. And there were a couple of stinkers also.

The AFL bounces up this week. Pies has a couple of surprise finalists in his preview.

Manchester City are flying the EPL. While Brighton are staying just ahead of the relegation zone. But the hottest team in English football has been League One Burton Albion with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink back in charge.

In other sport Supercars go round at Sandown, Murray Walker passed away, the Golden Slipper jumps at Rosehill this weekend and the Brooklyn Nets are a beautiful team to watch in the NBA.

Pies and BS in the studio to discuss another week of sport.

India prepared a spinner's paradise for the 3rd test which was over on Day 2. The Producer is not happy about it.

Brighton copped one of the howlers of the season and proceeded to miss 2 penalties in a shocking loss to West Brom.

SVG kicked off the Supercars season in style at Bathurst.

And we answer all your questions and have a chat about Supercoach NRL & AFL.
