Episode 57 is now live! This week Glen is on holiday in Fiji, so we have a very special guest host – none other than Queensland, Manly, and Gold Coast rugby league legend (and current Business Development Manager for the Gold Coast Titans) Chris “Choppy” Close! In addition to the news, reviews and previews we also run through insights on his work at the Titans, his thoughts on Mal’s outburst, Gus Gould’s hair, how many games he played for Manly officially, and much much more! We can’t thank Choppy enough for the time he gave up to join the show in the co-hosts chair. Follow Chop on Twitter at @chop59, and be sure to check out the charity that he is patron of, Teenage Adventure Camps Queensland.

This episode also features a bunch of listener-submitted game recaps, so big thanks to: @gt351_jons, @cruzie06, @garbs1985, @102megan, @Drew_Nathan, @bendunn43, @tiger_benji, @jono2900, @trekwest, @annelise_08, and of course @parraman1973! Oh, and an extra special mention to that little pocket rocket that I forgot – @jartv! Oh oh oh… and @dragonpunk12!
