Episode 250 - No Friend Of Ours


We hit a milestone episode with a big game to talk about, so much of the show is spent recapping the World Club Challenge. That doesn't mean we don't give fair time to a moderately busy news week and an exciting bunch of Super League games, featuring one of the highlights of the year so far. We've plenty of your fan views on all the rugby league goings on of the last week, a loosely 250 themed quiz and we make our predictions/guesses for the next round of games. It's a full SLP for Episode 250!

Episode 248 - Fizzle and Burn


We're a day late and playing hurt this week, but there's still loads of content for you to get in your ears. Sarah's got the black and white specs on of course, but they don't explain her new target for Super League distaste. And Mark's got his cherry and white ones on, which may lead to a mini-rant mid pod. But we've got loads of your fan match reviews to add your own biases to balance it all out in the best way we can.
