As passionate Kiwis Mark and Mikey discuss the upcoming International teams for rep weekend.
From an NRLCEO perspective they discuss bye week planning and the players in the Dream Team.
Lastly, on the back of the Moneyball fantasy teams, the Tantasy boys reveal their “Back Alley Bullies” – a team of current day players who would represent you in a 1971 Tommy Raudonikis style game of footy.
With 242 first grade appearances with four NRL clubs, it’s fair to say Nathan Friend had a highly decorated and successful career.
As an NRLCEO player he was an unsung superstar – scoring workhorses and double workhorses regularly with relative ease. He was constantly one of the first hookers picked.
In this great interview with Mark and Mikey you will hear about his first professional contact, how he played with a broken jaw for 70 minutes, why he wore his famous head gear and how no one recognises him without it!
Of course we couldn’t chat to him without discussing the famous back flip try assist too.
With 151 NRL games and 87 tries for six NRL clubs, six Origin appearances for Queensland and a sneaky Super League appearance in the South of France, Chris Walker has lived an exciting and prosperous professional career.
He is now working in the media for ABC Grand Stand and Channel 9, appearing on “Chillin With Willie”, an Internet show with Willie Mason and Reni Maitua and promoting a new social media app called Kwickie. He joined the Tantasy boys for a great chat and has some great stories to tell including why rugby league and soap stars don’t mix and the infamous Ricky Stuart preseason booze up.
He discusses being apart of some of the greatest squads of all time as the Broncos, Roosters and Storm. He also talks about chasing the money at the Rabbitohs and why he made the decision to leave. It’s a 40 minute chat full of funny and insightful stories and one not to be missed.
