Sportzfan Radio show 350 – 18 August 2019

Sportzfan Radio celebrated the 350th show in fine style welcoming back some panellists from the past in Daniel Eade and Chris formerly from Barwon Heads who joined the discussion with the Professor, the Gelding, the Judge, Coutta and Nick the Saint.

The Panel spoke to former steeplechase jockey, Leigh Woodgate about her early years, her career, the race fall 25 years ago, her recovery from the injuries she suffered in the fall and the inspirational speaking role she now has.

We also talked Premier League with Mark Fiorenti and NRL with Paul Dalligan.

In the Weekend Musing, Clarko and Polly

I wonder what Alistair Clarkson thinks of the constant accolades he gets when Hawthorn win a game against more fancied opposition. After the win last Friday night against Greater Western Sydney the match was lauded as a Clarko master class, but when the team loses, it is to do with the players. The Hawks have only won 9 games so clearly the players are an issue. Don’t get me wrong I think that Clarkson is the best coach in the AFL, but sometimes I think the things that are attributed to him go a bit too far.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Polly Farmer during the week. He was obviously an amazing player and someone upon whom you never hear a bad word said. Before he used handball as an attacking weapon it was only used by other players to get out of trouble. One of the most amazing things about him was when he injured a knee, he changed the leg he jumped off in the ruck. This is something that would have been very difficult to do and still maintain his skill.

Have a great weekend!
