    2.5: St Kilda FC's Seb Ross on an AFL 2020 return to action

    2.5: St Kilda FC's Seb Ross on an AFL 2020 return to action

    It would have been Round 9 of the original 2020 AFL Fixture, however in reality we've only completed one week of action. AFL players have been in social isolation like the rest of the Australian community due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, wreaking havoc on sporting competitions and schedules.

    With a return hopefully not too far away, St Kilda Football Club vice-captain and two-time Best and Fairest winner, Sebastian Ross, joined an special, shortened edition of the Unpluggered chat room to discuss what the extended layoff has meant for the Saints players, and how they are preparing for a return to full training and live footy action over the next few weeks.

    This podcast was produced in isolation via a Zoom conference call.

    2.4: Zooming through isolation with Tim Membrey & Arryn Siposs

    He's a lifelong Saints fan who ended up playing 28 games for his favourite club, and hes now on the verge of a completely new career in American with NFL franchise, Detroit Lions. Arryn Siposs has spent the last few years honing the American Football craft of 'punting,' putting to good use his booming 'Superboot,' having kicked 21 goals over 5 years in the AFL system. We talk to Arryn about his career in RWB, as well as his time in Alabama playing in front of 90,000 fans at the famed Auburn University and his next steps on transitioning to the NFL.

    But, before we even get to our featured guest, we stop to check in with Saints forward and leadership group member, Tim Membrey, about his time in isolation, as well as looking back at Round 1 and how the game played out.

The Lenny Hayes of podcasts

Such a great podcast focusing on our senior sides and the issues surrounding our club of the last few years - particularly the arrival of our women’s side, the passing of Spud Frawley, and the impact the current situation on our club! While the three hosts are clearly massive supporters of our club, this doesn’t ever become 3 mates ranting on about the Saints like they are in a backyard on a Sunday afternoon.

The comments are considered; the themes are well-chosen and varied, and they’ve had some great guests on who they’ve been able to extract some interesting and different takes on events surrounding the clubs.

Highly recommend this for Saints fans, and anyone wanting an hour(ash) of footy talk that is agenda and ad free!
