September 15, 2021

Welcome you fantasy rugby nerds to the fantasy corner with those Yanks. It's our first episode of nerding and geeking out about all the numbers. We focus on The Rugby Mag this week, mostly because FRD hit a false start. We talk overall strategy, best buys for each club and some big red flags that you should not touch. Plus, some real in depth numbers and a preview of what's on offer. Of course, we do that Start/Sit thing that you all love and our first picks of the year for the coming weekend. Have another cold one with us, yeah? Let's get to it! Please do keep in mind, we recorded this earlier in the week.

In the 33rd and final episode of Season 3 of TFRY, we pack a whole bunch of goodies in for you all. We talk about player movement, mostly leaving New Zealand. We chat about the Lions injuries and replacements, what do we have here? Though we did space on Murray being the new captain, oops. We get into Olympic 7s pools, replacing AJ MacGinty on the Eagles, our beloved Free Jacks new home and so much more. We unpack the Premiership Final, that Joe Marler interview, the issues with officiating that are far worse than other league that MLR faces, the winner of the inaugural Champi-Yanks League and oh my look at all the fun. Crack a couple, kick back and have one last laugh with us.

We also cover a few topics we just simply haven't had time for including the Champions Cup format next season and players switching their international allegiances. Oh yeah, I guess we had some rugby to talk about. We cover leg #2 of the Championship Final, both Prem Semifinals and the Super Rugby final.

Last super long one, we swear! On this episode, we dive into many of the international squads that were released over the last couple weeks including the U.S. Eagles Camp that is being put together for next year's World Cup in New Zealand and Dave Rennie's Wallabies squad as they prepare for Les Bleus next month. We have our pick of team and players of the year in both competitions, and I'm sure there will be disagreements from afar. There were some easy choices and some, well not so much. We dive into what in the hell happened in Championship Final First leg and wrap all the other action from around the leagues, including our mighty Free Jacks staying unbeaten at home. Crack a couple and have laugh with us!

It is a beast of a pod, so break it down however you need to. Wasn't a ton we could justify putting on the cutting room floor, apart from a barking dog. On this episode, we cut into SO MUCH, Springboks, Eagles, retirement, oh my. We delve into the officiating we'll see on the Lions series and that DC #9 that is oh so classy. We also duck into a little bit of the player's reasons for protests. Oh, there was rugby too!? Oh bother..yeah we dive into all the action from both the Prem and the goings on in the Trans Tasman area as well. Yup, we do one final, big, Start or Sit this week as well. Crack a few with us, have a laugh and enjoy folks.

It's those lovable American rugby dopes talking about that leather oblong ball we adore. In this episode we talk about a couple of unfortunate retiring players due to injuries and the slight difference between the two situations. We of course dive into the action from down under including the not so funny business D-Mack was up to. We bring it north to discuss a couple refereeing styles that we saw this weekend and why neither is necessarily right, but one is more tolerable. Yes we dive into the Premier 15s Final between the Quins and Sarries, that Mum you never mess with and that interview we all were finding the tears about. All this, the whip around for all 3 leagues including MLR and more. Crack a couple frosty ones and tune in!

Season 3- Episode 28- The Eagles Are Hatching (Champions Cup Final & Super Rugby TT Round 2)

May 26, 2021

It is those American rugby dopes that like to talk about rugby and pretend rugby. On this episode, it's one that means a lot to us because it's the first USA Eagles squad that has been picked since the 2019 Rugby World Cup. We go over the names that we are excited about, maybe a bit of back story as to why we are excited about them and plus we pick the guy we think should get the arm band for this summer's tour. We also talk about a couple of matches that had no significance what soever at Twickenham. We wrap all the action from Super Rugby and do our usual Start or Sit thing. Kick back, have a laugh and enjoy!

Season 3- Episode 27- This is Not AAU Rugby (Premiership Round 19 & Super Rugby TT Round 1)

May 19, 2021

It's those American rugby knuckleheads coming at your with more fun for your to laugh at. In this episode we talk about a certain Eagle that's also a Falcon, or you know at least for a little while longer. We address the tip of a very nasty iceberg in terms of what USA Rugby can do to get itself going, and an AAU team is not the answer. We talk about the new 7's league popping up over on this part of the earth and what the different pros & cons to it are. Of course we wrap all the action including a very bad bad man playing for Bristol and the first weekend of Trans Tasman Super Rugby. A bit about some Champi-Yanks League and you've got everything you need. Kick back, grab a nice beverage and tune in!
