Football’s Tax Free Status
At half past the 11th hour on AFL Grand Final eve, Roy & HG examine the tax free status of all sporting codes, especially AFL and NRL. Is this because sport in this country is like a religion? Or V’Landy’s and the Murderer squeezing the last ounce of juice out of sports that are dying in the bush. Royal Commission me thinks.

The Queen meets the King
Roy remembers the day Her Majesty met Rooting King. Roy sensed a presence; it was the Queen. The King knelt to allow the Queen to mount him, and the grace, pride and poise on the Queen’s face, will never be forgotten.

Old fashioned salt lick
Australian cricketer, Cameron Green suffers from cramping issues. Roy associated cramping with a lack of salt and offered some advice. Stomp and Grass use to insist on having a salt lick in the dressing rooms with the Shamrocks. Certainly, at halftime the whole team would get on their knees and have a lick.

Take us through it?
With the retirement of Serena Williams and James Tamou, there was a suggestion of a farewell World Tour with these two exceptional athletes. James could have a final spray at a ref and then sit down with Roy and he would ask, “take us through it?”.

Shaq - The face of Flegg
The Bunnies have pulled out of next year’s round zero clash in America. Maybe the problem isn’t the teams, Rugby League needs an ambassador, like Shaquille O’Neal. Instead of sending a first-grade teams, send a couple of Flegg teams

Healing balm and Glue
Great Rugby League story this week, local team the Sand Goannas won the premiership after they were lucky to field a side at the start of the year. Thanks to 17 year old captain/coach, Mannix Hunt. Mannix, the Bludge is right up behind you!

Echidna vs Bulldog
The donkey circuit is a point of much debate. Should it go ahead on one of the new counter-lever stadiums and what are they going to do when Paul Gallen’s not fighting? For that hour, release a echidna and bulldog from their cages, fight it out, bet, then back in the cage and back to the zoo! Solution.

He knows rubbish from behind
Oscar Piastri who’s managed by Australia’s Mark Webber, signed to McLaren this week. Piastri was chased by Apline, but he doesn’t want to sign to them. They’re a rubbish team! Webber would know, he’s driven behind enough rubbish in his time.

Light a bunga and feed the scrum
This week Kevin Proctor was immediately sacked for vaping in the loo at halftime. Is this a sackable offence? Greats like Warney loved a smoke between innings, Cliffy Lyons, Neville Costigan and Darren Lockyer sounds like he smokes. Anyways, something for V’Landys and the Fair Work Commission to investigate.

QLD Win! Or back in the fridge
The year the King, Wally Lewis dies, he should be put on ice and the following State of Origin have him buried, centre field at Lang Park. It’s all about the bet, the competition, either the Maroons win or King Wally goes back in the fridge!
Jul 16, 2022
The Blues in Game 3 had lost the game before they got on the field, Wednesday night. Roy described the mood, the silence in the change room, like they’d been told that they would be taken out into the middle of the ground and be hanged. Executed!

How to become a Touchie
Rugby League games are played at such a furious pace, decisions need to be swift and correct. Referees and touchies don’t always get it right. Who can blame them when they’re getting just over $30 a game! Something for the Fair Work Commission to look into.

Rugby League Purity
With the economy suffering from stagflation, why aren’t we teaching Rugby League in schools? If we are going to expand the game, then we need to start with the kids! Not teaching the sicko stuff, we’re talk’in Rugby League purity.

ORIGIN SPECIAL – Dipsy doodle around the back door
Rugby League players have a reputation for taking their pants down. If Teddy Tedesco and co are going to continue with this caper, then maybe we should have a betting market and capitalise on this State of Origin phenomenon.

Golf's forgotten man quits
HG fought back tears reading a personal letter from Mark Hensby announcing his retirement from golf at year’s end. As HG lifted his heavy, blood shot eyes (sadness related), he said to Roy, “dragg’in the bag gets ya down”. Not a true word has been spoken.

Rugby League Loss Leave
Mark from Toowoomba suggested Rugby League leave. If your team suffers a shock loss and you need to grieve, your employer will stump up, fully paid loss leave for you to cope with the trauma and help pay the bills in these tough times.

Master of bias, wonderful sense of length
Bias – a term thrown around in Rugby League circles. Is it a term familiar with referees? Of course, especially when it comes to State of Origin, and length? A ref knows when to end a game, when Queensland’s in front!

The Greg Dowling 4 piece dish and salad bowl set
Darren shared a great idea for Rugba League memorabilia. A whole shelf full of footy greats and events from the past, beautifully displayed on plates and bowls. Something for all the forgotten quiet Australians to collect.

Cage of Immigration
Problem – Sports star with a criminal history. Obstacle – Australian Border Force. Solution – The offender would be meet at the border, put in a cage and dragged to any stadium. A new classification for athlete criminal visas. Perfect!

Irony in the exposure
What’s more important, the photograph or the Rugba League dunny? What if Helmut Newton snapped the photo? He’d have an artistic point of view, which would shape your attitude towards the toilet.

Rugby League Cheque
V’Landys wants to invest in Rugba League stadia! What better way to invest than starting your own bank? Rugby League Bank. That produces Rugby League cheques. Whatever happened to the humble cheque book?

The Minister for Education and Youth, where is he? Alan Tudge, has anyone seen him? Last sighted under the desk of Sneesby at channel 9. Possibly working up a new show or segment for ‘Eye of the Storm’? Who knows.

V'Landys has a plan.
How good is Peter V’landys? The man of feathers, the negotiation god of Rugba League is working on a plan to network Rugby League stadiums across Australia. You’ll be able to access them via a dedicated road system or very fast train.

Rugby League bigger than war
Rugby League is war. Warriors that take to the field without helmets. A documentary to promote Rugby League in America. Now sure, Americans are stupid, but they understand war. Maybe Rugby League is bigger than America!

Rugba League Certificate of Intention
To stop the pitch invaders at Rugba League games, Roy & HG have devised a genius method that every Rugba League fan would have to fill in a ‘certificate of intention’ when entering any ground. Brillant!

Rugba League Soap
With the glittering array of Rugba League merchandise, one item caught the eye of Roy & HG. Rugba League soap! Interestingly the AFL own the copyright, Unbelievable! It’s upset HG, he’s demanding the Government step in. Outrageous!

The Best of Roy & HG - Week 2
Due to health protocols blah blah blah.... that's code for the boys are missing in action. Last seen with the Murderer in a head lock at Warnie's shindig, doing the macarena on the dance floor with the Minogue sisters. Please send them home if you see them.

The Best of Roy & HG
After Buddy’s 1000th goal last night, Roy & HG got caught up in the celebrations… then the Murderer turned up. It ended up in fisty cuffs and one of them was ruled out today with an HIA. So, we cobbled together this “Best of”. Well, maybe some good bits, Enjoy!

Rugby League SHOULD be compulsory

3 in a pub is NOT Rugby League culture
Sad stories have emerged from the dark "Rugby League" underbelly. Roy demands, "It's a cultural problem". The culture that doesn't exist when team mates can't meet in a pub, with a few beers to sort out their differences.

Underpants on the door knob

The burnt underpants in Basil's head
Perth's lord mayor Basil Zempilas raised the "cringeworthy" idea of the crowd at the AFL Grand Final applauding Australia for the great work we've all done during Covid. Roy & HG came up with a better one. How bout AFL fans torching their underwear and place the burnt remains in an urn the shape of Basil's head, mounted to the AFL trophy.

Rugby League Player, Joey Leilua is reinventing himself as a prop. This is a clear case of EdgeitisPropDismorphia. When Rugby League players who start their careers as wingers, slowly morph into front rowers. Talk about Prop trapped in a winger's body!

The Mornington 5
What do you get when you mix a bunch of jockeys, blood, a party and a ouija board? Well, I don't know, but it might be connected to Gladys and her reluctance to holding press conferences. The Mornington 5, one for the streaming services.

Parable of the yeast
Hey kids, there was a time when Rugby League players were ordinary members of society. These ornaments of our community taught us so wisely, like the "parable of the yeast", making the bread rise and all of us rise with them. Thank you for such thoughts, Nicholas.

Ornaments to humanity
Rugby League is full of journeymen, less ornaments and there are even less monuments? What about an ornament to humanity? It's one thing to contribute to Rugby League, but to also humanity. That's a special individual.

Is his head like a dish?
