The Crash Ball Podcast – Episode One

Take in your surroundings. Breath in the air. Remember this moment, because the world is about to change.

Welcome to the Crash Ball Podcast. This isn’t a podcast you bring home to meet your parents – it’s rough and ready, in a format you can inject directly into your jugular.

Reg and Matt have been jettisoned (for the time being), and I finally get to run my own ship, with a little help from a familiar voice in Aussie rugby.

This week we talk Super Rugby, Wallabies, Scott Fardy and TV rights in a barnstorming 18 minutes that you will never forget.

    Talk about short, sharp and sweet. Great podcast Hugh.

    Fardy is definitely playing some phenomenal rugby. He has a two year contract with Leinster so depending on where the Wallabies sit later in the year there’s certainly the option that you could sign him to play for the 2020 Australian season making him eligible for the Wallabies for the 2019 tests in the lead up to the RWC.

    Who knows whether he would have made the decision to go to Leinster if he’d been selected to start through 2016. I tend to think he would have. The differential in dollars on offer would have been significant.

    • Hugh Cavill

      Yeah that’s a fair point. I’m more salty about him being overlooked for so long before he went, given it’s clear he was still in our best 23.

      I think a 2020 contract should be high on the priority list.

  • John R

    That Jonesy sure is an agreeable producer / co-host!

  • Mart

    Nice one Hugh, keep the dream alive.

  • Dud Roodt

    Loving the music you’re playing in between segments Hugh. Did you get them straight off The 12th Man Again? Or was it The Wired World of Sports that I’ve heard those wicked riffs before?

  • Lester Spigot

    Great stuff Hugh.

  • Yowie

    Could a download option be added (or if it’s there, made obvious for thick fellas)?

  • Timmychap

    Love it Cav. Your repartee with Jones reveals the deep bond you share with him.

    Fardy not being picked never made sense.

    I hope for at least a couple more, and that guest producers also keep contributing.


Can't write, can't play. Tahs and Wallabies.
