The first Test of the summer is over, the AFL draft is almost upon us and there have been some fascinating developments on the topic of rugby broadcasting, so there’s no shortage of talking points for the latest episode of Game of Codes.
With Australia comfortably dealing with Pakistan in the first Test at the Gabba, we review the big talking points from Brisbane with cricket expert David Schout, from Dave Warner’s sublime century to that ‘no ball’ and the tourists’ selection woes, and what it all means going forward to the second match of the series later this week in Adelaide.
As the AFL draft looms, we’re joined by Josh Elliott, who takes a break from permanently penning his phantom drafts to give the low-down on the players to keep an eye on, what the best approach to drafting is, and one later pick who could become something of a cult figure for whoever drafts him.
Then, we finish off the show with plenty of rugby. First up, it’s Brett McKay phoning in to break down the latest developments to the rugby broadcast rights negotiations, before Geoff Parkes joins us to launch into a debate about who makes the rugby union team of the decade, which everyone agrees on and we didn’t have any arguments – particularly about David Pocock versus Richie McCaw – at all. Maybe.
