The ultimate first Test preview, a new Wallabies coach plus the decade's best AFL and NRL premiers

20th November, 2019

We’ve got Test cricket finally back underway and a new Wallabies coach all in the same episode of The Roar’s Game of Codes podcast!

Episode 63 begins on the cricket pitch, with a mega preview of the first Test between Australia and Pakistan. We’re joined by Roar cricket expert David Schout as we look at where the first Test will be won or lost.

Will it be another routine win at the Gabba to open the summer up? Can someone outside of David Warner and Steve Smith stand up and make runs?

We also ask whether Pakistan’s huge underdog status is completely deserved.

Then, it’s over to rugby with Roar expert Brett McKay as we discuss the impact Wallabies fans can expect new coach Dave Rennie to make on the side.

Finally, we turn our attention to the AFL and NRL with more ‘of the decade’ segments. This time, we decide who the best premiership teams of the 2010s in both codes were.

In the AFL, it’s Roar expert and editor Stirling Coates joining us, while Roar rugby league expert and editor Scott Pryde joins us for the NRL.
