This is the Mug Punters dot com dot au podcast for this Thursday the 15th March 2018, and coming up in news headlines this week:
Winx’s jockey Hugh Bowman will undergo cognitive testing before he returns to race riding after sustaining concussion in a heavy fall last weekend. The aim of the tests are to ensure poor Hugh is aware of his actions. Pete wants to know if the same cognitive testing should be applied to the jockey that cost him the final leg of the Melbourne quaddie recently, and while we’re at it why not also run the entire cast of ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’ through the same process.
Formula one’s controversial cockpit halo makes its debut in just over a weeks’ time at the Australian Grand Prix. But there have been issues fitting the device for some drivers, with Mercedes revealing initially the halo simply wouldn’t fit around the circumference of Lewis Hamilton’s head and Ferrari unsure whether their bad-boy driver Sebastian Vettel is deserving of one.
And, Hawthorn president and serial attention grabber Jeff Kennett has slammed the AFL’s desire to play games in other nations, branding it a waste of time and money. Port Adelaide and the Gold Coast will again play a game in China this season, while there have also been report Richmond and GWS are pushing to play in India. The AFL has confirmed that unlike in china last year when spectators could not even get a pie, the footy staple would be available if a game is played in India, but said they are likely to all be curry flavoured.
