    Pies is back in the studio and we're joined by Sydney's favourite Broncos fan Maybo. The man behind the famous Reed it and Weep banner.
    We talk all things NRL including the Roosters impending SBW signing. The difference between Wayne Bennett and Ricky Stuart. And where the Broncos go to from here.
    Plus the AFL is about to embark on wall to wall games for the next three weeks. Who will emerge on top? Does Brodie Grundy need a rest?
    Maybo isn't only a mad Broncos fan. His heart also belongs to Anfield. Liverpool finished on 99 points and collected the Premier League trophy for the first time in decades. It's time to celebrate. Can #PiesKnows go back to back? Can Pies game the system to prove Pies does indeed know?
    Plus heaps more. F1 are in Great Britain, the NBA is coming back. And the MLB has returned to a lukewarm reception.

    Mendy is back on the show which means heaps of variety from the sporting world. The Producer is in studio to bring you all the action.
    It wouldn't be a Mendy show without some darts talk and the boys deliver in bucket loads.
    There's also heaps for the rev heads this week. Moto GP, Formula 1 and Supercars.
    Plus all the regulars, NRL, Rugby & AFL.

    Our old mate Hunter is back from the UK to grace us with his presence. This podcast needed an injection of another footy team and Hunter's Panthers could be just the trick to balance the show out.
    On this week's show we cover all the latest from the NRL including the Panthers blow out of Scomo's beloved Cronulla Sharks.
    Swainy is back to talk all things Super Rugby.
    In the AFL are Port Adelaide the real deal? And could the Brisbane or GWS bubble burst?
    Plus we talk English Premier League, Formula 1 and Supercars, NBA and the West Indies first test victory over England in the cricket.

    Colbee is filling in with The Producer for the sick Pies.
    Pies is publishing this without listening to the show. Who knows what stitch ups the boys have lined up.
    Apparently there's NRL talk including send off and sin bins.
    Also AFL, tips at the end of the show, Rugby, English Premier League, Formula 1 and more!

    236 - NRL, Toronto Wolfpack with Sher And Lil, Rugby with Swainy, AFL

    We've got guests coming out the proverbial this week. Pies and The Producer discuss the latest round of NRL.
    Then we welcome first time guests to the show Sher and Lil. They are Canadian Rugby League fans, season ticket holders at the Toronto Wolfpack and are spreading the word of Rugby League around North America.
    Our old mate Swainy is back! Rugby is back! And we couldn't be happier. Super Rugby AU kicks off this weekend with a QLD Reds vs NSW Waratahs blockbuster. Catch all of the action plus Super Rugby Aotearoa on Foxsports.
    Pies made it to Giants Stadium for the GWS vs Collingwood game. The crowd was limited to the bars around the ground. But it's better than nothing. And the Giants seem to have the measure of the Magpies. In other AFL news, West Coast still don't want to be there. And Port Adelaide appear to have embraced getting out of Adelaide.
    We've buried the lead but Liverpool won the English Premier League. It's been a long time coming and not even the curse of #PiesKnows could stop the Reds. #PiesNo is no longer!
    In other sport, Supercars were back in Sydney on the weekend. And the NBA somehow still think they're good to go in Orlando.

    Pies and The Producer were getting a bit too cocky so we invited Lobby from League by the Fireplace under the false pretence that he could pour cold water on the Eels start to the 2020 season. But 14 point losses don't come much better than that Roosters game. And the Raiders couldn't beat Manly with their 2 best players injured. Anything could happen this week.
    In other news, the Roosters are clearly the benchmark. Penrith continue their good form. And Mary has flummed his way onto a winning* formula.
    In Supercoach the Lone Rangers keep winning, and Producers keep failing to produce. Can 16th beat 1st this week?
    West Coast look like they don't want to be there and GWS look as disjointed as a team that hasn't trained together all year. But everyone is in the same boat and they need to turn it around quickly. At the other end of the ladder, Gold Coast might have had all the breaks. But they may have worked out the formula. Draft the next champion.
    EPL is back, and other sports may or may not be back soon also.

Quality sports podcast

High quality show covering all the major Aussie sports and some left field sports from around the world. Plenty of laughs to be had and if your into SuperCoach they’ve got you covered as well

Poolio G ,

Great sporting podcast!

Excellent podcast covering all major sports in Oz and abroad, with quality banter and honest opinions between the hosts and guests. Highly recommended for NRL and Supercoach!

Daley Croker ,

Great GREAT podcast!

I hope I didn't over do it with the heading but it really is a terrific podcast. The guys are hilarious and know their sport. Possibly equally as fun as a ménage à trois, but with less back pain. If you haven't experienced either your missing out on life!
