Cheap Seats Episode 87: The #AskTheCheapSeats Special. And a bombshell…

Ryan O’Connell and I are toying with unlucky numbers in Episode 87 of the Cheap Seats podcast.

Do events in Canberra last night put Mike Hussey's PMs XI Captaincy in question? Will Brad Haddin mount a challenge to the leadership?

Do events in Canberra last night put Mike Hussey’s PMs XI Captaincy in question? Will Brad Haddin mount a challenge to the leadership?

With such a milestone episode upon us, the boys have again opened up the show to the listeners, answering #AskTheCheapSeats questions that came in thick and fast over the last ten days.

Topic were wide and ranging, and included – among others – Leadership spills, Wallabies playmaking, Sightseeing on the tour of Bangladesh, NFL, Roger Federer, Usman Khawaja, Elysse Perry, injury-prone bowlers, the Roosters whinging, generational change in the Australian cricket team, kids eating cat food, day/night Test cricket, NRC and ITM Cup teams playing each other, Sam Burgess, Aussies killing it in the US, the NBL and the NBA, and Robbie Farah.

And there’s a bombshell about the podcast itself, which we won’t spoil, but will just say thanks.

Cheap Seats Episode 78: Naive and idiotic

Ryan O’Connell and I have finally passed through Customs to return in time for Episode 78 of the Cheap Seats podcast.

#AskTheCheapSeats is back with something of a backlog of questions on topics including Wimbledon, things starting on time, Origin 3, the NBA draft, the Tour de France, and disappointing Australian performances in the Super Rugby semis.

Two Australian sides in the Super Rugby Semis delivered zero Australian sides in the Final, as both the Brumbies and Waratahs were outplayed. Plus there was refereeing controversy. Also, Origin 3 teams have been/will be named, and yet again there’s selection shenanigans involved.

Plus there’s a wrap up of the Cheap Seats Tipping League, which you can still join if you fancy giving up massive starts.

Cheap Seats Episode 77: Back on the bandwagon

Ryan O’Connell and I have our selections caps back on in Episode 77 of the Cheap Seats podcast.

#AskTheCheapSeats this week includes NSW State of Origin selection, the St.George/Illawarra bandwagon, English batsmen, and the return of Quade Cooper.

NSW and Queensland have named their teams for State of Origin Game 2, with only a few changes here and there and with Queenslanders very quick to forgive Daly Cherry-Evans. In the NRL, Parramatta fell in the mother of all heaps, we tackle Ryan’s thought on trimming the 13th player on the field, and we again ponder Who’s This Week’s Premiership Favourite?
