Podcast with Tim Brasher

Hey guys,

Hope you enjoyed the previous pods with Chris Lawrence, Junior Pearce & Sirro. I caught up with Tim Brasher last week.

Podcast is out today, let me know if you want the link to listen. It’s quite the interesting story in the lead into origin. Also I didn’t realise Brash was actually a Magpies junior and not a Tigers junior so the actual move to Campbelltown ended up costing them on the great full backs of the 90’s, any way he goes into how that all happened in the podcast. Any way topics are below, let me know if you’re keen.
