It was a wild and wacky weekend in just about every Australian sport this weekend, so the Game of Codes podcast is back to analyse, discuss and debate all the big talking points.
The Orazio Fantasia ‘Fan-taa-see-ah’ news shouldn’t have been an issue, but Brian Taylor controversially weighed in after claiming he’d continue to use the incorrect pronunciation. We got GWS Giant and podcaster Dylan Buckley on the line to talk Fantasia and dive deeper into player-media relations.
Onto the footy itself, Roar AFL Expert Marnie Cohen joins us to discuss Dane Rampe’s bizarre goalpost antics against Essendon. Did the umpires get it right, and did the AFL respond as it should have?
Then, we take a breather with football Expert Mike Tuckerman after another crazy weekend of A-League finals. But while the matches themselves had plenty of talking points, it’s the state of security and policing at football games in Australia that’s our focus for today.
Last but not least, we reflect on the NRL’s first edition of Magic Round and ask rugby league Expert Joe Frost whether it can work beyond Brisbane or even Sydney. Plus, the concerning pattern of second-half fadeouts plaguing the Dragons and what that means for coach Paul McGregor.
