'The Real Rev' Marcus Curnow & 'Captain Grizzly' Chris Lacey

Grizzly and Real Rev. are cock a hoot on a Saturday night watching Australia's World Cup opener after a big Dragons winter cricket win.  Warner and Smith are back after a year, but for Grizzly it's been a decade!  The conversation meanders between the World Cup and Western suburbs cricket as we discuss how one gets sunburnt whilst wearing a beanie. Will the purple beanies on order make us look like dicks or should we go the skull logo, black hoodies in honour of Puneesh "The Punisher"? We ask why Cornwall isn't in the World Cup and compare Peran Curnow's leggies with the Cornish patron Saint Peran, who was dismissed on 200 when he fell down a well drunk, which leads seamlessly to an interview with Barlky street veteran Kev Duggan discussing his own famous double century. We consider Jesse Bates, ‘How does it feel to drop the World Cup', Lance Gibbs moment and conclude reviewing the recent federal election, comparing various Prime Minister's cricket credentials alongside Afghanistan’s Mohammed ‘Boof’ Shazad. We ask "Is Barkly street debutant Jimmy Harrison at better bowler than John Howard?"  It's hard to tell because we've only ever seen two balls from both!
