Superfluous Fluff

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s been a busy week! Most of the games didn’t have a lot riding on them, but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been a lot to discuss. We’ll talk about board changes at the RFL and coaching changes at St Helens and Hull FC. We cover the fans-eye-view of the Super League Dream Team. And we recap a final round of Super League. But all of that seems like inconsequential, superfluous fluff compared to the NRL Review bombshell.

Our second, and let’s hope the last ever, double header weekend of the year in Super League. So double the games, double the stats, double the refs faults and double the fall outs! You listeners have managed to give us fan views on most of the games in time for the show. We’ve got bad actors, bad morals and bad losers. We’ve got good youngsters, good tries and good comedy. We recap what has been decided so far, speculate at what is to come and run the rule over all the action from the fans eye view.

Special guest host Hull KR fan Tom joins Mark this week. We recap Round 23 of Super League with your fan match reviews. It’s kind of a losers pod this week, with both host’s teams on the wrong end of things in their games, and a good representation from the losing Giants and Hull FC fans in the reviews. More fan bases start to look to next year with optimism. But this year isn’t done either as we give our latest guesses on how things will shake out. Plus, make your guesses now for which ref came in for the most flack in the fan views this week, it’s unfortunately quite an open race.

Mark and his co-hosts cover every game in the Super League in depth as well as summarizing matches in the Championship and League 1 and sometimes further afield. The level of detail alone would deserve a 5-star rating but the hosts provide colour and ensure that even though the episodes are long, they're never boring.

Also cover other rugby league competitions. Some swearing so may be unsuitable for those who are younger or of a sensitive disposition.
