NRLCEO Fantasy Rugby League

WARNING = Foul language and rants!

Let's be honest. This episode has very little to do with rugby league and is just seven minutes of drunken slurring, Mark spewing, Fothers bowling average, sexual conquests and Mikey bragging about winning the league.

*** ONLY listen if you want a laugh and are not easily offended.

All of us who play the game dream about it and pretend our rosters are important, but none of us could comprehend the stress of being in the top job for real.
