Synopsis: The show begins on a sad note as we mention the sudden passing of Ric Suggitt and Adam Cooper. Suggitt was 58 and he died of a brain aneurysm. He had coached both the men’s and women’s Canadian Rugby team. Adam Cooper played for 4th division Culcheth Eagles and had a seizure while on the sidelines. He was 31 years old and father of 3. A crowd funding page has been set up for the Cooper family, please feel free to donate here.
The show moves on and we start to discuss the Toronto Wolfpack’s 64-22 victory over the visiting York City Knights behind Liam Kay’s team breaking record of 5 tries. It was an impressive start by York and a sluggish one from Toronto. Chris and Dario discuss the alarming trend of slow starts by the Wolfpack and Dario has some advice for coach Paul Rowley on how to fix it.
We then head to the post game conference and not only do get another example of how humble these players are, but somehow coach Paul makes the case that playing rugby league is like making love to a woman. Yes, you read that correctly.
After the post game conference, we touch on Liam Kay’s 5 try performance, specifically one fantastic try, and also again touch on his humble personality.
Before we end the show with our I Know More About Rugby Than You segment, we had to clarify last week’s score and it is now official, Chris and Dario each have scored a point and is therefore tied 1-1 (it only took 7 weeks). Chris’ question is which team has scored the second most points as we all know the Wolfpack have scored the most. Dario gives Chris two chances to score by asking him what was the most number of tries scored in a match by one player and also what is the most points scored in a match by one player.
We close out the show with a shout out to Last Tackle, well wishes for a speedy recovery to Ryan Brierley and once again, our thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Ric Suggitt and Adam Cooper.
