  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Storm smack Warriors to stay top of NRL ladder, Richie Blackmore features

    17 JUN. 2024 · Tony Kemp and Martin Devlin present episode 14 of the Tony Kemp Podcast. Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Devlin, renowned New Zealand sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. First off, Kempy and Marty recap the action from round 15 of the NRL season, which featured a number of surprise results, including the Dolphins surviving a Cronulla Sharks fightback to win 30-28, the South Sydney Rabbitohs making it three in a row with a 22-12 victory over the Brisbane Broncos, and the Wests Tigers breaking their nine-game losing run with an 18-10 win over the Gold Coast Titans. The Melbourne Storm remain top of the table thanks to their impressive win over the Warriors, with the Penrith Panthers in second, the Sharks in third and Dolphins fourth. The Sydney Roosters, Canterbury Bulldogs, Canberra Raiders and Manly Sea Eagles make up the teams sitting 5-8. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors. This week's edition focuses on the Warriors' heavy 38-24 defeat at the hands of the Storm in Auckland, which ended a three-game winning run for the Mount Smart club. The boys question how the Warriors let slip a commanding 14-0 lead early on, whether or not Shaun Johnson should be dropped after an underwhelming performance, and more. Next, it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's a New Zealand rugby league favourite in the form of Richie Blackmore who features on the podcast. The outside back represented the Kiwis on 25 occasions, and played his club footy for the likes of the Warriors, Castleford and Leeds. Kempy and Marty chat with Blackmore about memories from the famous 1991 trans-Tasman test win over Australia in Melbourne, how Blackmore's career started, and much more. Then, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating a number of NRL topics, including if the Roosters are still a premiership contender, and what the new Warriors halves combination should be if coach Andrew Webster elects to change it. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Warriors wallop Cowboys & move closer to NRL top eight, Stacey Jones, & more

    10 JUN. 2024 · It's time for episode 13 of the Tony Kemp Podcast. Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Devlin, renowned New Zealand sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. To kick off proceedings, the boys recap action from round 14 of the 2024 NRL season. The weekend began with the Dragons crushing the Wests Tigers 56-14, and included the Warriors scoring a massive away win over the North Queensland Cowboys 42-12, the South Sydney Rabbitohs making it two in a row by pelting the Titans on the Gold Coast 46-12, and the Cronulla Sharks returning to winning ways with a 22-12 road victory over the Brisbane Broncos. As it stands, the Melbourne Storm are top of the table with the Sharks, Penrith Panthers and Dolphins making up the top four. The Canberra Raiders may not have played but they still jumped up to fifth on the ladder, with the Sydney Roosters, Broncos and Dragons rounding out the top eight. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors. The Auckland-based club enjoyed one of their best wins of the Andrew Webster era, dismantling the Cowboys 42-12 and moving to within one point of the top eight. That makes it three wins in a row for the Warriors, who well and back on track for a top eight finish - all going to plan - after sitting as low as 14th on the ladder earlier in the year. Kempy and Marty discuss whether that was the club's best win of 2024, Te Maire Martin's outstanding performance at halfback and whether or not coach Webster may select Martin instead of Shaun Johnson for this weekend's Storm clash, and more. Next, it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's one of New Zealand's greatest ever players - Stacey Jones. The Little General currently serves as Warriors assistant coach and Kiwis head coach, having made his name as a classy playmaker between 1994 and 2009, playing 306 first-grade games including 251 in a Warriors jumper. He talks to Kempy and Marty about his side's win on the road on the weekend and the uptick in performances of late, how much better they can get, looming selection headaches, and more. After that, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating a selection of rugby league topics, including whether the Wests Tigers are the worst NRL side of this century, and if the Storm and Panthers are still the two best teams in the competition. To finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Massive State of Origin preview with Gorden Tallis, NRL report card, & more

    4 JUN. 2024 · Tony Kemp and Martin Devlin are back for episode 12 of the Tony Kemp Podcast. Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Devlin, renowned New Zealand sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. First off, Kempy and Marty recap the action from a shortened round 13 in the NRL, which only had five matches due to the State of Origin series getting underway this week. The winners over the weekend included the Canterbury Bulldogs, Parramatta Eels and Canberra Raiders, while the Penrith Panthers and Sydney Roosters suffered surprise defeats. As it stands, the Melbourne Storm sit top of the table even though they had the bye, with the Cronulla Sharks just behind in second. The Panthers and Dolphins still remain in the top four despite losing their most recent outings, and the Brisbane Broncos, Raiders, Manly Sea Eagles and Roosters round out the top eight. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors. This week's edition is a little different with the Auckland-based club enjoying a week off following their two outstanding wins over the Panthers and Dolphins. Instead of a typical match review, Marty and Kempy assess the Warriors' season so far and preview the rest of their campaign, and their chances at making the top eight. The Warriors are currently 13th on the ladder with a five-win, one-draw, six-loss record. Next, it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's an Australian and Queensland rugby league legend in the form of Gorden Tallis. The man nicknamed the Raging Bull played over 200 first-grade games - the majority of which with the Brisbane Broncos - and won three premierships, as well as three Origin series'. Tallis chats with Kempy and Marty about the 2024 Origin series and how he feels it will play out, the keys to winning an Origin match, why the series means so much to Queenslanders, and more. Then, Kempy and Marty do a truncated head-to-head debate, with Kempy giving his thoughts on a number of teams - such as the Bulldogs and Eels - and their chances at qualifying for the finals as we tick over the midway point of the NRL season. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • TKP REWIND: Up The Wahs - Warriors score massive upset win over Penrith Panthers

    21 MAY. 2024 · Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Tony Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Martin Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they present the Tony Kemp Podcast. Up The Wahs is a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors. This week's edition is a particularly exciting one as the boys get to unpack a huge win for the Auckland-based club, as they defied the odds to overcome the three-time defending premier Penrith Panthers 22-20 in Brisbane. A number of key players including captain Tohu Harris, Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck were out injured, forcing a number of role players and young guns to step up... which they did, emphatically.  Which players stood out the most for the Warriors? Does the win solve some selection headaches - particularly at five-eight - for coach Andrew Webster?

    20 MAY. 2024 · Tony Kemp and Martin Devlin are back for episode 11 of the Tony Kemp Podcast. Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. First off, Kempy and Marty recap the annual magic round in Brisbane, and discuss the main talking points from the eight games with a focus on the winners. The Cronulla Sharks are still the team to beat in the NRL winning their ninth game in 10, a 38-30 victory over fellow title contenders the Sydney Roosters. Cronulla are two points better than their nearest rival on the ladder the Melbourne Storm, with the Penrith Panthers a further two points behind in third. The Dolphins continue to be this year's surprise story and sit in the top four with a 7-3 record. Their most recent result? A 24-12 win over the Wests Tigers. The Brisbane Broncos, Canberra Raiders, Roosters and Newcastle Knights sit in the 5-8 range. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors.

Then, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating six rugby league topics, including whether or not Taylan May should be let go by Penrith following his latest off-field incident, if the Warriors can still make the top eight, and why magic round needs to remain in Brisbane. Kempy hands out the Effluex clean-up award for the player, coach or team who did their job better than anyone else on the weekend - someone who rolled up their sleeves and turned gunk into gold. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Woeful Warriors, Cronulla the team to beat, Danny Buderus joins the show

    13 MAY. 2024 · Episode 10 of the Tony Kemp Podcast is here! Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Martin Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. To kick things off, Kempy and Marty look through the key matches from round 10 and discuss the main talking points. The Storm and Cronulla Sharks battled in Melbourne with the away side getting the chocolates 25-18 and further solidifying top spot on the ladder. The Penrith Panthers leapfrogged the Storm into second spot, thanks to a tight 16-10 win over the Bulldogs at home. Though it wasn't all positive for Penrith, with star halfback Nathan Cleary set to miss eight weeks with a hamstring injury. The Dolphins remain one of the stories of the season so far, and a 30-24 victory over the Manly Sea Eagles nestles them comfortably in fourth spot with a 6-3 record to boot. The Sydney Roosters, Brisbane Broncos, Canberra Raiders and Sea Eagles round out the top eight. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment that Kempy and Marty dedicate solely to chatting about the Warriors. The club's season is getting bleaker by the week with yet another defeat, this time a 38-18 hammering at the hands of the Roosters in Sydney, highlighted by a blistering 22-0 start within the first 15 minutes for the home side. To make matters worse for the Warriors, halfback Shaun Johnson suffered an apparent pectoral injury and could spend some time on the sidelines. That makes it five successive games without a win for the Kiwi club, and they sit way down in 14th on the ladder with just three wins from 10 games. Next it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's one of New South Wales' modern-day greats and a servant to the Newcastle Knights - Danny Buderus. The now 46-year-old was a two-time premiership winner in 1997 and 2001, and was named Dally M Player of the Year in 2004 and three times a Dally M Hooker of the Year. As well as that, he has 21 and 24 appearances in Blues and Kangaroos jumpers respectively. Buderus chats to Kempy and Marty, offering his thoughts on the season so far, particularly the mass of teams in the middle of the table - which includes the Knights, Warriors, Raiders, and Bulldogs - who are all jostling for top eight spots as it stands. As well as that, he talks about questionable refereeing decisions around kick charge downs, and more. Then, pair go head-to-head debating six rugby league topics, including whether or not the Roosters are capable of winning the premiership, if Wests Tigers coach Benji Marshall is a dead man walking, and the chances the Warriors miss out on the top eight. Kempy hands out the Effluex clean-up award for the player, coach or team who did their job better than anyone else on the weekend - someone who rolled up their sleeves and turned gunk into gold. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Warriors lose 3rd straight, rampant Roosters, Steve Price joins the show

    6 MAY. 2024 · Episode nine of the Tony Kemp Podcast is here! Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Martin Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. The Cronulla Sharks continue to set the pace at the top of the NRL table with seven wins from eight games, and improved their record thanks to a 20-10 victory over the Dragons at home. The Melbourne Storm also maintained their hot start to 2024 with a hard-fought 22-20 win over the Titans on the Gold Coast. The Canberra Raiders surprised many with a come-from-behind win over the Manly Sea Eagles on the road 26-24 despite injuries to key players. Injuries is a word closely associated with the Brisbane Broncos a well - if Friday night wasn't bad enough being bashed 40-18 by the Sydney Roosters, Brisbane captain and star halfback Adam Reynolds suffered a bicep injury that will keep him out of action for 14 weeks. As it stands after nine rounds, just four points separates four through nine on the table with the Bulldogs sitting in the final postseason spot. Kempy and Marty look at the key results from the weekend and how they impact the premiership after a third of the season. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment dedicated solely to the Warriors, who find themselves in a seriously concerning form slump after yet another week without a win. The Mount Smart club lost their third in a row 14-8 away to the Newcastle Knights, which drops them to 14th on the ladder. It's been over a month since the Warriors won a game - should coach Andrew Webster consider making changes to the matchday side with so many players out of form? Has the Roger Tuivasa-Sheck at centre experiment failed? Next it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's a man who won premierships with the Bulldogs and State of Origin series' with Queensland, and donned the Warriors jersey on over 90 occasions for five years - Steve Price. The 50-year-old is one of the Warriors biggest-ever signings, with the club snagging his signature ahead of the 2005 NRL season. During his time at the Warriors, he was named NRL Dally M Prop of the Year and Captain of the Year in 2007, and Warriors Player of the Year twice.  Price talks about the Warriors up-and-down start to the season and what he reckons it's down to, how the NRL can crackdown on players milking penalties, how the obstruction rule should be altered, and more. Then, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating six rugby league topics, including whether or not the Melbourne Storm's premiership window has closed (despite their 7-1 start to the season), and if Wayne Bennett can genuinely save the South Sydney Rabbitohs (assuming Bennett is named the Bunnies' next head coach). Kempy hands out the Effluex clean-up award for the player, coach or team who did their job better than anyone else on the weekend - someone who rolled up their sleeves and turned gunk into gold. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Warriors lose again, Sharks surge continues, & special guest Daniel Anderson

    29 ABR. 2024 · Round eight of the 2024 NRL Premiership is in the books, which means it's time for episode eight of the Tony Kemp Podcast! Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Martin Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. After eight rounds are the main contenders beginning to make their move into the upper areas of the NRL ladder? The Cronulla Sharks are top of the table for the third successive week boasting a 6-1 record, following another big win, this time over the Raiders in Canberra 40-0. The Sharks are joined by the Melbourne Storm, Penrith Panthers, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos inside the top five - four of those teams made the finals in 2023, and look a good chance at contending for the top four this season. Just behind are the Dolphins, who suffered a surprise loss to the under-strength Newcastle Knights 18-14 at home. The Sydney Roosters - who put 60 on the Dragons on Anzac Day - and the Canterbury Bulldogs - who enjoyed the bye - round out the top eight. Kempy and Marty recap the most important games of the weekend including the Panthers holding off the North Queensland Cowboys and the Broncos blowing away the Wests Tigers. Then, it's Up The Wahs - a segment dedicated solely to the Warriors, who again endured a shock result, this time losing to the previously winless Gold Coast Titans 27-24 in Auckland on Anzac Day. The result sees the Warriors sit 12th, just one point outside the top eight. Can the Warriors' drop in form lately be entirely linked to injuries, or should they be putting these seemingly weaker teams away regardless? Kempy and Marty answer that and more. Next it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's a man who played a major role in the emergence of the Warriors as an NRL heavyweight in the early 21st century - Daniel Anderson. The 56-year-old coached the Mount Smart club for three and a half years, guiding them to a Grand Final appearance in 2002. He's had other head coaching roles with St Helens in the Super League, and the Parramatta Eels as well. Anderson talks about how the 2024 season is shaping up and the main contenders, his current role with the Roosters, the latest around his health following a surfing accident in December 2022 that left Anderson a quadriplegic, and more. Then, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating six rugby league topics, including whether or not the Warriors' top four chances for this season are over, and who out of the bottom four teams - the Eels, Tigers, Titans, and South Sydney Rabbitohs - has the best chance at moving up the ladder. Kempy hands out the Effluex clean-up award for the player, coach or team who did their job better than anyone else on the weekend - someone who rolled up their sleeves and turned gunk into gold. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.

  • Tony Kemp Podcast: Dragons shock Warriors, Broncos blitz Raiders, Cameron George joins the show

    22 ABR. 2024 · The Tony Kemp podcast is back for episode seven! Every Monday during the 2024 NRL season, Kemp - the former Warriors coach and Kiwis representative - is joined by Martin Devlin, renowned sports broadcaster and now host of It's Only Sport on The Platform. Together, they recap all the main talking points in rugby league's biggest club competition. Seven rounds are in the books and the NRL for 2024 remains a tight one. The Cronulla Sharks are the pace setters for a second-straight week, which will no doubt surprise a few, after their impressive 42-6 win over the North Queensland Cowboys at home. The Sharks have five wins from six games. Other contenders such as the Melbourne Storm, Penrith Panthers, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos all won to solidify their places inside the top eight, while the Dolphins caused the upset of the round with a mammoth 44-16 win over the Parramatta Eels. Four points separates first through ninth on the table, with three teams who made the finals in 2023 currently on the outside looking in. Kempy and Marty discuss and dissect the key games and what stood out to them most. Following that, it's Up The Wahs - a segment dedicated solely to the Warriors, who were on the receiving end of an absolute thumping, losing 30-12 to the St. George-Illawarra Dragons on Friday night. Kempy and Marty question whether this performance was coming following an up-and-down draw for the Warriors against Manly a week earlier - should people panic or was it just a blip? The Warriors face the Gold Coast Titans at home on Anzac Day next, which is arguably the easiest of fixtures for them to bounce back given the Titans remain winless so far this year. Next it's He's A Ledge, and this week it's Warriors CEO Cameron George who joins the show. Aside from the Dragons result it's been a positive week for the club with the news of Penrith prop James Fisher-Harris signing a four-year deal from 2025 and rumours Jett Cleary - younger brother of Nathan and son of Ivan - could be on his way to the Mount Smart club as well. George answers questions surrounding those two players, while also shedding light on how far away the Warriors-themed bar in Auckland is. Then, Kempy and Marty go head-to-head debating six rugby league topics, including whether or not the Warriors' next clash against Gold Coast is a must-win, and which team alongside Penrith, Brisbane and Melbourne can challenge for the premiership. Kempy hands out the Effluex clean-up award for the player, coach or team who did their job better than anyone else on the weekend - someone who rolled up their sleeves and turned gunk into gold. And to finish things off, Kempy lists his five best teams in the NRL right now on TK's Top 5.
