With the NSW State Election looming, people have until Saturday to make a decision who they are going to vote for.
Labor and Liberal are going head to head, making promises and trying their best to get ahead in the race.
Incumbent Premier Mike Baird, leader of the NSW Liberal Party, is going for his second term in office and with the election coming up the boys asked the Premier to come in to cut through the spin to tell us just what he plans to do for NSW in his second term.
"People these days Premier... are time poor to start with, there's nothing worse [than] sitting in traffic or waiting for a train or waiting for a bus. That problem, that gridlock we have in the Sydney... given the fact the western suburubs in Sydney are growing so rapidly... is it enough?" asked Matty.
"If we are given the privelage of continuing post-saturday, in 2019 the M4 will be done, the M5 will be done and people's travel times will be massively improved and as we're doing that we're getting underway with that second harbour rail crossing, so the same time we're improving the roads and the rail," explained Premier Mike Baird.
The boys also asked the Premier about two of the biggest issues facing the people of NSW, the Coalition's plans to lease the "poles and wires" against Labor's plans to hold onto our electricity assets and what Baird is doing to combat the rising threat of terrorism.

How Well Do You Know Your Enemy With Premier Mike Baird
The boys also had a bit of fun with the Premier, playing a game that they usually reserve for footy players called "How Well Do You Know Your Enemy?"
They asked Baird about his opposition, Labor leader Luke Foley who didn't accept our invitation to come on today's show.
"What NRL team does Mr Foley support?" asked MG.
"It's a disgrace, I think it's the Roosters, isn't that right?"
"Well that's something positive about him," said Gus.
"Someone from Labor supporting the Roosters? Now that's an odd fit," said Matty.
"Of course you're a Manly supporter?" MG asked Baird who is also the local member for Manly.
"Yes, that's true, Sea Eagles through and through," Baird repsonded.
They also played a word association game, have a listen back where he also bags out Justin Bieber.
