NRLCEO Fantasy Rugby League

A very special episode this week as Moneyball host Ted chats to a real NRL CEO - the Panthers own Corey Payne.

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. 

In the chat Corey discusses how he got involved in club administration, how to balance a roster and Ted puts him on the spot and asks who he would draft first if every player in the NRL was available, which is a situation we as NRLCEOs face each year. Suprisingly, it's not a Panther! 

As well as the interview, Ted is also joined by Jacko and Marcho to finish off the debate about the best NRLCEO players in each position. This week they discuss the props, hookers and back rowers. As always, each position is hotly debated.

Welcome to another week with the Tantasy Podcast boys. Mark and Mikey are joined by two special guests this week as they decipher one of the few remaining rounds of NRLCEO before finals kick off.

Mark chats to Gold Coast Titans barnstorming backrower Zeb Taia about how he rates his own performances from a stats basis, his fascination with the NBA draft, his thoughts on whether the NRL should have a draft too.

With State of Origin 3 just around the corner, Ted and Marcho chat about the emerging State of Origin players and the stats they're tied to, the effect Corey Parker's retirement will have on the Broncos and Ted has a fascinating interview with a former NRL superstar and his hero, Craig Wing. 

Ted chats to Craig about his recent retirement, playing playing rugby union in Japan and being a part of one of the greatest NRL squads of all time. He gives a great insight into his controversial move to the Rabbitohs, his Origin experiences and how he thinks NSW can get back to Origin dominance.

A special podcast this week as the Tantasy boys wrap up State of Origin and have a chat with Raiders up and coming superstar lock Luke Bateman.

They talk to Luke about what he thinks an NRLCEO workhorse should be worth, whether he plays NRL on X-Box, his junior club and how he spends his Origin nights. 

If you enjoy the boys having a tanty (after all that's what this show is all about!) then you'll love this episode. Mikey is an unhappy NSW supporter and his hooker crisis continues. First Nathan Peats and now James Segeyaro. And that's not the only player in his side to be out. Listen in for the famous ripped nightie.
