Welcome back, readers and listeners, to another episode of The Roar’s very own podcast – Game of Codes.
Our Thursday episode is now live and, as is usual in the sporting world, there’s plenty to talk about.
First up, we dissect the huge AFL news yesterday of Collingwood star Jaidyn Stephenson receiving a 10-game suspension for betting on his own team. Did the AFL get his punishment right, or did the 2018 rising star get off lightly? Roar editor and AFL expert Stirling Coates jumps on to discuss.
Then, it’s time for our mega-preview of State of Origin Game 2. Will New South Wales’ enormous rash of changes see them shake up the scoreboard and escape Perth with a series-levelling win?
Or, will Brad Fittler’s mad experiment blow up in his face?
We discuss all that, and all the other burning Game 2 questions, with Roar rugby league expert Joe Frost.
Next up, it’s over to the FIFA Women’s World Cup where football expert Mike Tuckerman jumps on to try and decipher what’s been a confusing group stage for the Matildas. Just how good are they and what chance are they against Norway in the Round on 16?
Finally, it’s rugby union time we preview the Brumbies huge quarter-final clash with the Sharks with rugby expert Brett McKay. Can they win and how far can they go?
