Host Jamie Soward, Co host Nick Davis and the team discuss the final preparations for the QLD Maroons and the NSW Blues as both teams prepare for the opening game of the series. Are the Blues still favoured to win on the road? And can the Maroons find a way to stop Latrell Mitchell and Tom Trbojevic?
The boys also discuss the week that was including the latest controversy surrounding players simulating penalties after the crackdown on head high tackles. Dicky talks about how other codes have responded to these incidents and how to best remove the behaviour from the game.
Sowie also raises the question, if you could choose 4 people to assist Peter V'landy's in resolving the high tackle debate who would you choose? The team also preview the game of the round, as the Parramatta Eels look to overcome the loss of their dummy half Reed Mahoney as they take on the in form Wests Tigers at home.
Dad Chat is back for another week, with Big Show and the boys sharing their parenting adventures. While Tristan has you covered this weekend with #PuntforChange.
