RD 19 REVIEWS + RD 20 PREVIEWS | A round of saucy match ups

July 29, 2021

There were (almost) some major upsets in Round 19, but ultimately the Cowboys and Broncos fell short, while the Storm and Panthers roll on at the pinnacle of the league.

The Raiders managed to hold on against the Eels in one of the best matches this season. Defence was the showpiece of the evening, producing the first 0-0 halftime scoreline in almost 3 seasons, while some controversial calls both helped and hindered the Eels in the match.

In Round 20, we've finally got the match we've all been waiting for - the likely GRAND FINAL PREVIEW in the Melbourne Storm v Penrith Panthers. Meanwhile, the Eels and Roosters fight for a top four berth and the Raiders and Knights for a top eight spot!

July 20, 2021

WERE THE BRONCOS ROBBED? OR WAS IT JUST DESSERTS FOR AN ABYSMAL SECOND HALF SHOWING 🤔

First of all, the good news. We had another week of minimal shellackings. That is always a good time. 

The even better news - the Raiders managed to string together back to back wins off the back of 21 offloads and 270m+ from star rookie Xavier Savage.

In this episode, we review the QLD MAROONS victory from Wednesday night, where against all odds they managed to deny the Blues a clean sweep. Then, we discuss the round that was (including a very contentious call in the Broncos v Tigers game), and the realistic prospects of the Bottom 8 teams. With almost every team mathematically a chance, we take a look at the final 7 games of the season and who we think is a write off and who is rising.

Round 17 turned in some surprise contests! Of course it would, right after we spent 40 minutes blasting the NRL gamemakers for the trite it had become and the weekly blowouts 🤷‍♂️

In this episode, we review some of those close contests, including the Bulldogs v Roosters and Sharks v Warriors, as well as the upset victory by the mighty Green Machine!

Then, we turn our attention to Round 18 AND Game III of the State of Origin Series. Can the Maroons avoid a clean sweep? Only one of us keeps the faith!

Are we really still talking about these blow outs?
 
Sadly, yes. 
 
If you're anything like us, you've always lived and breathed footy. Until recently, you might have even watched every single game, even those you didn't have a particular stake in - just for the pure spectacle of speed, aggression and skill.
 
But the way things have gone this year - it's almost become a farce. We've found it harder and harder to get excited for the games, with so many of the results seemingly written in stone even before a ball has been kicked.
 
So this week, we're tee-ing off on V'Landysball. We don't even have any specific game times to list this week, as our theme of the diminishing quality of rugby league simply carried us from game to game, where it was example after example of how dire things have become.
 
LISTEN TO THE EP & LET US KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS - ARE YOU LOSING INTEREST IN SEASON 2021?
 
This episode also includes an analysis of the teams announced for Game III of the State of Origin Series (aka the dead rubber).

LET THE AUTOPSY BEGIN 🧟

The Origin Series has been wrapped up by NSW, absolutely dominating QLD across the park for almost 2 entire games of footy. So what went so wrong for QLD? Or is the NSW team simply THAT good?

We analyse Game 2, the Series so far and the upcoming dead rubber aka Game 3 in this episode.

We also preview Round 16, after what has seemed like an age without NRL footy (it was only 12 days but a lot of shit did go down in that time am I right?)

THE DRAMA OF GAME 2 IS RAMPING UP 📈

Even since we recorded this episode late Saturday, some serious drama has been unfolding inside the QLD Maroons camp.

Reece Walsh has been ruled out with injury 😭

Ronaldo Mulitalo has been named to make his debut on the wing 😮

Ronaldo Mulitalo has been ruled out due to ineligibility 😡

Xavier Coates has been rushed back into the team 😬

Can the Maroons overcome all this to nab a win against all odds at Suncorp? It's only hours until we find out.

Whatever time it is that you're seeing this, go settle in on the couch right now and crack a tinny - it's gonna be a wild ride. 🍻

THE CAMEL'S BACK HAS BEEN WELL AND TRULY BROKEN

In a whirlwind week in the NRL media, the Broncos are cleaning house. It began before a ball was even kicked in Round 15, with the 9 Commentary Team revealing Tevita Pangai Junior had been instructed to start looking around the league for other options, despite another 1-2 years remaining on his contract. Now they've followed suit with the sackings of Performance & Recruitment Personnel, and the signing of big name execs like Ben Ikin.

We've also got our Round Reviews as always, covering topics like the rediscovery of the Panthers mojo, underperforming Raiders & Titans outfits and more.

Plus, we've got the first of a two part ORIGIN GAME 2 PREVIEW, including the team announcements with surprise selections like 7 game rookie Reece Walsh!

TIME FOR ANOTHER EPISODE LADIES & GENTLEMEN. IN THIS INSTALMENT, WE'VE GOT SOME ROUND 15 PREVIEWS FOR YA 

It wasn't long ago we were marvelling at what seemed to be an unbeatable team in the Penrith Panthers, but thanks to the decimation of their team through ORIGIN, they've lost two on the trot and Storm and Sea Eagles are rising fast as threats for premiership tilt.

Will the Pennies bounce back this week facing off against the Chooks? Can the Raiders follow up their first decent performance in a long time with another one against the hapless Dragons? And how the fuck is Isaiah Papali'i still playing footy this week?

All this and more here 👉

ORIGIN GAME 1 RECAP + ROUND 14 REVIEWS | The Bulldogs Rise!

June 15, 2021

Origin Game 1 has come and gone - with the severe depression or exhilaration that followed depending on where your allegiances lay 🤠 😭

And not only did we get an Origin match this week, but we were back to our regularly scheduled 8 games of NRL footy - so with 9 games of footy to sink your teeth into in this episode, how good is livin'!

The Sharks and Bulldogs pulled off upset victories, while the Roosters clawed back a win to deny the Titans the all time biggest comeback victory. If only they could defend (or the Bunker could be consistent with their double movement calls...)

This round also saw our teams match up in the Raiders v Broncos - get our take on the game and the rest of this round below 👇👇👇

THE FOOTY GODS HATE THIS PODCAST! 👎

We had another big episode planned for you guys, including a half hour Origin Game 1 Preview to be released on Tuesday - but between the global Fastly outage and Spencer's 2012 Macbook Air finally saying night night, it just wasn't to be.
 
But now we ARE able to get it uploaded, so even though it's late, this way you'll get to hear just how wrong we were, including how much we thought the Maroons were going to shock the NSW Blues, as they simply "don't get Origin like we do" 😳
 

In this episode, we're also reviewing the 4 games of footy from Rd 13, including two very alternative views on the round with Alex loving watching the next generation while Spencer felt ripped off by the quality of footy (and not to mention the shafting of the Penny Panthers).

Jamayne Isaako and Brian Kelly get a deserved tongue lashing, while Luke Brooks gets rare praise for his role in the Tigers W!

And as always, we've got the Rd 14 Previews for you, including the one and only time this year when our teams will face off, with the Raiders hosting the Broncos in what will no doubt be a very cold night in Canberra.
