The Tip Sheet – 2021 Episode 11: Previewing A Sunday Triple Header With Joey Grima


The Tip Sheet is also available on Spotify and iTunes!



The boys are working off a short week as the scramble to get ready for Round 5 but the show has to go on!

Joey Grima fields the first batch of #AskJoey questions as dives into the X and Ys of the game. Starting with the roles of the A and B defenders, the mechanics of the block play and then defensive techniques, Joey delivers a cracking 101 on some of the fundamental aspects of the game.

The regular season of the junior representatives winds up this weeked with the rescheduled Round 7 games taking place. The Harold Matthews are looking to shore up a Top 2 finish and a Week 1 bye in the finals while the SG Ball are looking to sneak into the Top 6. Joey talks the boys through how both teams are approaching their different scenarios.

Sixties and Forty20 then run through the round to be with the Eels hosting a massive triple header at BankWest Stadium. The Jersey Flegg are taking on the Roosters and will be looking for their first win of the year while in the NSW Cup the Eels are hunting for a bounceback victory over the Dragons after dropping a game to the Magpies on Easter Monday.

The weekend ends with the Eels looking to make it five straight in the NRL with a win over the 6th placed Dragons. Anthony Griffin has the Red V performing admirably in 2021 and the boys discuss what that entails for Sunday night. The return of Ryan Matterson and the club debut of Bryce Cartwright adds further intrigue to the contest and the fellas look at what sort of role ‘The Carty Party’ might have off the bench.

This episode of The Tip Sheet ends on a sombre note as Sixties and Forty20 pay homage to one of the great characters of the game in Tommy Raudonikis. Tommy passed away on Wednesday morning after losing a battle with cancer at the age of 70.

Goodnight Gimbob.

first 20 minutes no sound.


Another great podcast boys. Thanks Joey for the Q&A opportunity and the time given to my question. I’ll have more for you in the coming episodes!

I’m really looking forward to this weekend. The forward clash should be worth the price of entry alone if the Dragons play like they did last weekend against the Knights.

I’m hoping for a big game from DBrown up against Normy too.


Thanks for submitting the question mate. Joey’s a true fount of knowledge.
Like you, I’m looking forward to a great game.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
