On Saturday, when Roy and HG finish another season of their ABC radio show, Bludging on the Blindside, it’ll mark the end of their 36th year of mocking Australian sport, politics and culture at an elite level. That’s 36 years in a row. Some years might have been busier than others, but they’ve never had a hiatus. They’ve never broken up. In fact, they’re probably the most enduring double act in the history of mainstream Australian entertainment.
earlier this year my 11 year old son said to me, i am looking forward to the NRL season starting soon. i was was thrilled but asked why, he said so we can listen to the Roy and HG podcast. that is my greatest ever moment as a parent and live in my heart forever.
There’s just nothing like these two. I so enjoyed reading this and watching these clips.
The nicknames. The latest generation of NRL players might miss the ravages of concussion, but can we call them tough if they've never had to live up (or down) to the Roy and HG nicknames?
