131. Rings, with Adam Gilchrist
1 hr 23 min
The Sheffield Shield is back. We’re talking Neser 5s, Pope 5s, Siddle’s peroxide salad, Slug Webster’s Slug, Marnus hitting hundreds, Agar hitting hundreds but the main question is can we fuck the picket fence off to get the ball back?

Glenn Maxwell almost hits a 6 in the IPL and Sehwag doesn’t rate him, Kohli is good again - for now - Sunil Narine chucks, Ben Stokes is back and Jofra gets an Xbox.

And we’re talking an English invasion in the BBL this summer and what that’ll mean for Bairstow stories.

Adam Gilchrist is on the show to give his verdict on Ponting, Ashwin and mankads, to discuss winning 21 times in a row, captaining IPL teams, losing World Cup rings and checking the paper to see which grade teams made the finals.

#AskTGC involves Flintoff, Trump and tape ball, identity issues, how to get recognised in 5th grade.

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.
