    After a one-week sabbatical, the boys return for their longest episode yet to make it up to the fans in a HUGE two weeks of rugby league! Kicking things off with the lineups for State of Origin Game 2 and all the changes NSW and QLD make from Game 1. We also delve into the selection of Latrell Mitchell after his resurgence in 2024 amongst others, as well as Billy Slater dropping Selwyn Cobbo. Plenty to cover in Rounds 14 and 15 of the NRL with the return of TPJ, major moves in the player market for multiple NRL and Super League clubs, Roosters investing in USA Rugby League, and much more! We also head Around the Grounds for the upcoming U19s Origin fixture and the recently announced Samoa v England two-test series!

    Episode 128 | “Was it an Origin-worthy send-off?”

    Episode 128 | “Was it an Origin-worthy send-off?”

    A sombre panel for our immediate reaction to the QLD Maroons victory over the NSW Blues to take a 1-0 lead in the State of Origin series. Massive talking point as Joseph Suaali’i gets sent off in the 8th minute of the game with much conjecture surrounding the decision at this level. The boys discuss which players stepped up and which ones faltered as things heat-up surrounding what needs to change for each team in Game 2, with Suaali’i the centre of attention in this argument. The lads also go in on the poor Fox Sports ratings for QLD and NSW before previewing the historic sold-out Women’s SOO match on Thursday night, reviewing Round 13 of the NRL and Super League, before announcing a new partnership for “Around the Grounds” where Tass reveals the future of test and international rugby league and the changes to future World Cups. Episode dedicated to the memory of Rob Burrow.

    Episode 127 | "NSW finally drop Teddy; QLD no longer underdogs"

    The State of Origin period is upon us once again as the official lineups for the NSW Blues and QLD Maroons were announced for Game 1. Our panel go into deep discussion for every selection, particularly the axing of James Tedesco and David Fifita, the dramas surrounding NSW’s halves, Api overlooked for hooker, the odd Selwyn Cobbo bench choice, as well as the 6 new faces for NSW and 1 new face for QLD. Our NRL coverage for Round 12 has been shortened dramatically after some technical issues.
