Bunny Pie

Marto has had enough of Rabbitohs supporters and their drawn out celebrations

Marto has had enough of Rabbitohs supporters and their drawn out celebrations and new found arrogance, so he wants to get under their skin when they arrive en masse next week for the NRL season opener against the Broncos.

His solution is “If you can’t beat em EAT EM!”

So rather than Marto rave on like an insane old man (as usual), we’re creating the ultimate footy food – Rabbit, Beer & Bacon Pie which we are going to serve up to the supporters on their march into Suncorp on Thursday night March 5.

Our friends at The Goat Pie Guy are making the pies, and today Gordie Tallis was our official taste tester  (is there anyone else who knows more about food than the big man?)

The pies will be served to fans on the way to the Broncos v Rabbitohs gig next Thursday night.

Sickening footage aired on ABC's Four Corners program on Monday night showing animals  flung around Greyhound training tracks as bait.

Live pigs, rabbits and possums were shown being tied to lures by some of Australia's most prominent greyhound trainers.

QLD Racing CEO Darren Condon told The Grill Team they will act quickly to deal with the offenders.

"We will deal with all of the people shown in the footage swiftly and promptly.. to make sure this practice is eradicated from the industry," he told Marto, Michelle & Ed.  

"They'd be banned for life"

RSPCA CEO Mark Townend echoed Condon's disgust, telling the Grill Team: "The human behavior and the way they treat animals isn't normal"

Michael Clarke To The Grill Team "I Would Play Under Steve Smith"

Australian captain Michael Clarke has revealed to Triple M Brisbane's The Grill Team that he would be happy to play under Steve Smith.

Michael Clarke joined The Grill Team yesterday for a pretty in-depth chat.

Marto, Michelle and Ed didn't hold back from asking Pup some of the big questions that have been surrounding his career at the moment such as if he would play under Steve Smith as captain.

"Most definitely I would, look that’s the thing, I’ve said it for a while now you know I feel for Smithy because I sat in his shoes when a lot of the media were calling for Ricky Ponting," Clarke told The Grill Team.

With the constant rumours around his captaincy, Clarke is staying positive and wants to return back to the Australian side as soon as possible.

"I’ve been so fortunate in my career, played over 100 test matches, I’ve played over 200, been fortunate enough to captain my country."

"If my time is over as a player or as a captain then you know the game moves on, people come and go the game will never change that’s life," he said.

He also commented on the reports of a "rift" between himself, other players and Cricket Australia.

"It’s news to me, I’d like to know where it’s coming from, Look I think, the only thing I can really say. It’s obviously disappointing because I haven’t been around the team."

"For the last 7 weeks now I’ve been away from the group so it is disappointing that people are writing that, but they are obviously getting their information from somewhere I feel like my relationship with Cricket Australia especially my team mates is exceptional."
"I speak to all my teammates regularly……..George Bailey, Steve Smith, Darren Lehman the captains and the coaches I will speak to regularly."

Listen to the full chat with Clarkey and The Grill Team below. He also talks about looking towards the future and recovering from the tragic loss of Philip Hughes.

Earlier On Triple M

Dobbo’s horse Peak Crossing has been pulled from the race after tearing a muscle which will require 6 months rest. Thanks to your votes Dobbo has agreed to undergo the haircut of Gordie and your choice. We reveal the haircut tomorrow on our facebook page here.

Gordie V Dobbo




 Instead we are going to race Dobbos Chihuahua Lily v Gordies 'Substitute Dog Dora' (Gordie's dog Tyson is too old to run) at Albion Park Raceway this Friday. Thanks to everyone who offered up your speedy dogs.

Dogs So Far


 Every race day needs a precursor to the main event, so tomorrow 20 Panto Horses will take to Albion Park Raceway to take part in our Panto Horse Race to win $500 and Fooies tickets. 



 A long rivalry that started years ago with a bet over who has ‘the best dumplings’ (not a euphemism) has reached breaking point with Gordie and Dobbo arguing over who has the best racehorse. Dobbo's horse Peak Crossing has only run last and second last six races in a row.  Gordie's horse Signor Carlos has scraped only one win in Caloundra ever.  


These are the two hair-dos that Gordie is favouring for Dobbo for forfeiting the bet. Vote for which one your prefer below.

Samoan-Australian boxing champ Alex Leapai was on Triple M Brisbane's The Grill Team recently to talk to Marto, Michelle and Ed about his upcoming heavyweight bout with American Malik Scott.

"What is it with you fighting big tall boxers, this bloke is 6'5", you had enough trouble with Klitschko, didn't you learn anything?" opened Marto.

"It’s the way the game is, if you want to fight the best you have to take on who is in front of you, and unfortunately Malik Scott he’s one of the best out of there and like you guys said these guys don’t get any shorter they get taller," explained Leapai.  

"It's been eight years, is that right, since you've fought in Logan?" asked Michelle.

"Been 8 years (since fought in Logan) and I’m just really happy and really looking forward to tonight, to put on a show for all the supporters in Logan and I know the whole Queensland and Australia," said Leapai
"The Metro is pretty much the heart of Logan and I wanted to fight where it’s pretty much the centre, where it’s easy for everybody to come you know, theres a lot of people up there that they get on the drink and can’t find their way home, but it’s just closer to home for everybody and you know it’s just my home."

Builder's Revenge Paintball Challenge

It's payback time for A Current Affair's Tim Arvier

After years of literally 'running down dodgy tradies' Marto reckoned Tim was giving hard working (cough) builders like himself a bad name.. So it was time to even things up and give some tradies the chance to get their own back.

Thanks to the guys at Top Gun Paintball for providing the course (and a bunch of highly skilled paintballing tradies), one sunny afternoon in October, it was payback time.

It was all in aid of the Channel Nine Children's Hospital Telethon, Saturday October 11, so the pain (and bruises) Tim suffered were at least for a good cause! More about the telethon here.
