113. Yeah The Girls! with Alyssa Healy, Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle
Play episode · 1 hr 17 min
The Australian Women win a World Cup, break records and make history at a packed MCG. They did it by having a stick first, absolutely smashing them and decimating the opposition before dancing on stage at a Katy Perry concert in full kit.

Have we ever felt safer?

There's a Men's series that allegedly happened in South Africa at the same time. Nothing has ever meant less. Marnus smashed ‘em but!

Alyssa Healy joins us post World-Cup-Winning-Circuit to discuss her six over cover, alpha-ing Mitch Starc, copping a send-off at 1/100 and Molly Strano wearing Katy Perry’s boots.

Peter Siddle and Nathan Lyon then join us from Sydney to talk about Amazon's documentary, The Test. In doing so, Sidds announces his retirement from Grade Cricket and rounding up his score at Edgbaston, while The Goat talks about Headingley, Joel Wilson and what Steve Smith said to him while they pursued as many runs as possible at Edgbaston.

Also, Tim Paine pops in to give some life advice that will likely end up as a tattoo on many listeners’ faces.

#AskTGC involves a group of Dads coming to training before finals and one of the better cricket dreams you’ll ever hear.

Bound for Glory: Gary Ayres
At the start of 1991, the family club were coming off a season where they had failed to continue in the family tradition, eliminated by Melbourne the previous September to miss their first Grand Final since 1982 - unable to complete a three-peat. As odd as it sounds, their failure to make it to the big one in 1990 sent the club into a tailspin. They had been called too old and too slow in the past – maybe, just maybe, it was now true? When the West Coast Eagles, the new kids on the block, towelled them up at home early into the new campaign alarm bells sounded once more. But sure enough, Michael Tuck’s side got on a roll to finish in second spot on the ladder. Their next mission: a trip across the Nullarbor to take on Mick Malthouse’s hotshots to start one of the most anticipated finals series ever held. All the experience of the battled-hardened Hawks was on display through the month that matters most, overcoming West Coast at Subiaco then just reaching the finish line against Geelong a week later to earn a berth in the Grand Final at VFL Park. The Eagles were now on their territory for the decider. Gary Ayres knows more than most about saving the best for last Saturday in September, twice winning the Norm Smith Medal as best afield in the 1986 and 1988 Grand Finals. By 1991, he was the vice-captain at Glenferrie, hunting his fifth premiership. The man they called Conan joins The Greatest Season That Was to take us into the inner sanctum of one of the most decorated and celebrated football team ever assembled.
