Ben Flower’s punch and Russian Grand Prix

14th October 2014

This week Simon was joined by Nick, Bradley and Calum. Rugby League led the agenda after Wigan’s Ben Flower was handed a six month suspension for punching St Helens’ Lance Hohaia in Saturday’s Grand Final.

The next topic on the programme was England’s football team after its 1-0 win over Estonia in their UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying group. The panel began by discussing Raheem Sterling’s request to be rested prior to the game.

Wayne Rooney scored the winning goal in England’s 1-0 victory, but Bradley questioned whether he was a suitable captain.

Towards the end of the show the guys discussed F1 after the first ever Russian Grand Prix took place at the weekend. They reflected on the narrow gap between Hamilton and Rosberg in the standings, and whether the double points system in place for the last race on the circuit is fair.
