Hosts Stephen Ferris and Kris Gale are back with the long-running Fire Up! show (formerly on FBI Radio) that dives WAY too deep into the absurdities, minutiae, atrocities and huuuuge personalities in the NRL Universe, featuring regular guest and a perfunctory, random and opinionated weekly analysis of every round's games.
Please follow these blathering idiots on:
Grubs, Mug Lairs & The Big Dance
1 dzień temu
59:16With temperatures climbing and a hot grand final drawing near, our hosts keep their heads cool and debate the big issues facing the game without pride or prejudice, fear or favour. From "Alex The Grub" - the forthcoming Fire Up! Children's book, to Reece Walsh's mesmerising eyes, from the quantum physics of forward passes to the Chairman "Dictatorships" of Hagipatelis and Lancaster, from Shaun Johnson's happiness to Val and Rowdy's double act, no stone gets left unturned in this week's diagnosis of the soap opera we affectionately know as Rugby League.

"The Pointiest Point Of The End"
1:02:26As the RL Season narrows towards its finale you would think there might be less to discuss, but it seems not! Tune in to hear Kris and Steven opine on all the current talking points in the game, such as Kalyn Ponga's thoughts on the love of a good woman, Rugby League Matchmaking, a potential new wing in the RL Hall Of Shame, Shaun Johnson's Dinner Suit, Penrith & Melbourne's Fractured Fairy Tale, The Brisbane "Sucked In Wayne" Bronco's, Kris's prosthetic tongue, Ashley Klein's Refereeing Apology, the intersection of Rugby League & Politics, Lindsay Collins' Avocado Habit, PVL's Property Portfolio, the immense potentialities of "Destination" Shire, Balmain's Root & Branch Review, Val Holmes's Instagram Strategy, Fitzy's "good" and "bad" concussions, the NRL Atrocity Walk, the Cleary Finger Readjustment and...as always....much, much MORE! And what's more Denis Carnahan delivers a brilliant take on Jack Wighton's biting incident to the tune of Kung Fu Fighting! It's Good stuff. Listen in and maybe even give the boys a review or a share. Luv ya's all.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Bring Your Dog To Work Day
58:38Listen up people, there's a lot happening! In a "funny old week," with several clubs still jockeying for positions leading into finals, we find ourselves delving deep into the TURMOIL at Hefron Park, including the multiple dog-related incidents involving Simba, Rocky, Thor & Ruby, Rodney Churchill's infamous text and the 27 member WhatsApp group, the "myth" of Latrell and "creating memories" with Luke Combs. We also discuss The Book Of Feuds, Parramatta's dacking of the Panthers, and look at the various controversial incidents over the weekend in a mega episode of Rugby League Biology. Stephen rants about Trap Music, Denis Carnahan channels ELO to sing about Tyrell Sloan's ball grounding issues in the weekly tune, The Eels dack The Panthers, the victimisation of JWH gets analysed and there is... as always....MUCH MUCH MORE! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
1:07:47As the regular season draws to a close we welcome esteemed journalist and author - and sometime ghostwriter - Andrew Webster - to the Fire Up! studios to discuss all the hot issues in Rugby League and more, including Latrell's cowboy fixation, Luke Brooks's BBQ, Wayne Bennett's passive aggressive phone manner, "The Stapler - tackle or injury procedure?", the Dragon's 2018 Faceplant, Sonny Bill's sound business advice and Payne Haas's surprising act of generosity. And of course, much, much, more, including a ripping track from Denis Carnahan! Hope you enjoy XSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
"Peace In Our Time"
56:36Special Guest this week is the keyboard warrior and lung suffering Parramatta Eels fan Adrian Proszenko (Nine Corp/SMH) who thoroughly entertains us with tidbits of his encounters with luminaries like the Coach Whisperer Bradley Stubbs, The Immortal Joey Johns, Ref Boss Graham Annesley and many more. The boys get down and dirty attempting to dismantle the new peace between the NRL and the Players Association, as words like "autonomy," "governance," and "workload" get bandied about. It's rip-roaring stuff! And plenty more topics are discussed including Sticky Ricky, the Las Vegas Junket, The Kythera Connection, Rugby League Haircuts and The Newington RL Factory. All this - and a new song from Denis Carnahan! - in under an hour! Corrr.....See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Rub Of The Green
55:27After yet another "weekend of disappointment," Rugby League fans Ferris & Gale declare their need of the "Wellness Gurus" to re-balance their damaged minds and souls. Ubuntu and DIs and all that. They take a good hard look at the numerous refereeing controversies over the weekend, discuss the battle with FIFA for the hearts and minds of young female sports fans, and amongst a myriad of other things touch on Rexona ads, the Tibby Cotter Bridge, The History of On-Field Urination, The Scorpion Tackle, how to Google "Strip" and much, much more. They may be down in the dumps, but it's still very entertaining. Tell your friends.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Carayannis and Carnahan!
57:23As we draw firmly in to the business end of the season we welcome guests Michael Carayannis, journalist for the Daily Astonisher amongst many other roles, and ABC satirist Denis Carnahan to the studio to discuss the RLPA v NRL negotiations, moral victories, Sticky Ricky, Billy Slater and "the General Public," the Bunker - a necessary evil?, and of course delve deeply in to the Melbourne Gargoyles and their recent round of backslapping. It's all rather entertaining, educational and at times even slightly comical, if you like that sort of thing. Thanks for listening League Lovers :)See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Let's Go NRL Barbie!
