Episode 36 talking points:

  • #AskTheCheapSeats featuring Benji v Brett on the sidelines;
  • Super Rugby: the Benji Marshall experiment comes to an abrupt end for the Blues, the wacky disparity between the conferences, the return of the Crusaders and the smart tippers who know it, Australian derby lotto, and Brett’s off-the-cuff Wallaby XV;
  • NRL: something must obstructing referrees’ thinking, the strange world of Channel 9 on Twitter, Canterbury’s unusual piece of history, Wests Tigers rapid rise giving Mick Potter surprising job security, and Stewartgate appears over;
  • the now famous token wraps of AFL and the A-League, including the Good Friday football debate and the Central Coast Mariners horror schedule, and
  • theĀ  Worst Case Scenarios for this week, in which the boys look abroad.

Cheap Seats Episode 9: A very typical Shane Watson 90

Watson, Watson, and Horwill get the Cheap Seats treatment in Episode 9.

Ryan and O’Connell and I are back on deck for a cheap shot-laden Episode 9 of The Cheap Seats podcast.

In this episode,I become slightly swamped by my schedule and had to relinquish the hosting duties. Unsurprisingly, Ryan happily picked up the baton and all the opportunities for ridicule that come with it.

Episode 9 talking points: Jobe Watson’s stunning admission that he was injected with a banned anti-obesity drug in 2012; Rugby’s Blues launching a raid on Benji Marshall, and what that might mean for Wests Tigers and the NRL; the latest cricket developments from England; the Second Wallabies-Lions Test from Melbourne, and this week’s Splash & Dash on Mark Webber and Bernard Tomic.
