The Dropped Kick-Off 2 – The Western Sydney Special (with Nick Pfitzner)

The Dropped Kick-Off 2 – The Western Sydney Special (with Nick Pfitzner)

It’s been a while between drinks, but The Dropped Kick-Off is back again for another sesh on the airwaves.

With all the focus on the Wallabies-Ireland series, it’s easy to forget that a few weeks ago it was announced that the Greater Sydney Rams had been removed from the NRC. Add in the loss of the Penrith Emus, and things are looking tough for those rugby fans in Western Sydney clubland.

For this week’s episode, Nick W (Wazzy) and Nick H (Harty) sat down to talk with Twitter and GAGR favourite, Rouse Hill Rugby Club president Nick Pfitzner (Pfitzy) to examine the nitty-gritty of what’s going on Sydney’s West, including the specific challenges those local clubs face, the impact the loss of the Emus and Rams has had, and what could be done to better support the game.

    Fantastic listen, one i think many in the bubble would do well to listen to

  • Muzz

    Nice pod fellas. It’s nice to hear more about what’s happening on the ground away from super rugby & Wallabies.

  • Huw Tindall

    Awesome pod Nicks times 3. I was getting so angry listening to the comments about The selfish NIMBY approach to rugby taken by so many of the traditional strong club rugby organisations. Fucking amateur hour. If ever we needed an independent commision it’s now.
