Cheap Seats Episode 81: Pom-thumping and shark-punching

Both Ryan O’Connell and I are claiming to have punched a shark in Episode 81 of the Cheap Seats podcast.

Australia have squared The Ashes series with a 405-run win in the Second Test at Lord’s, and with it, we’ve now seen a massive momentum swing in the series. Australia’s big guns fired, the new inclusions justified their selections, and suddenly, happily, all the pressure is very much back on England ahead of the Third Test at Edgbaston next week.

In other news, the Wallabies produced a heart-stopping come-from-behind win over South Africa in Brisbane, The Week’s NRL Premiership Favourite is not quite as clear as last week, Hawthorn have one hand on the AFL cup, and in the biggest, scariest sporting moment of the weekend, Mick Fanning punched a shark.

Plus there’s a wrap up of the Cheap Seats Tipping League, which you can still join which you can still join for The Ashes and The Rugby Championship.
