ABOUT THE HOSTS
Tristan K’Nell aka TK
The man from the Talking with TK podcast is much better at interviewing NRL players than playing NRL fantasy.
He is known to choke at the biggest stage and he is the bunny of his co-host Josh Corby. In the prestigious Kent Kup, TK in 2020 had one of the most dominant seasons of all time, breaking numerous records but again crashed out in the preliminary semi-final to Corby.
A serial contender/pretender, TK is better at giving advice than following his own. Likes to regularly drop the phrase “spice it up” but is known for his intimate knowledge of the playing squads across the NRL.
Josh Corby AKA Corby
Corby is the least experienced but most successful member of Talking League. Talked into the game only four years ago, he went from a wooden spoon grand final first season to establish himself as the GOAT of the league with two premierships in the last three seasons.
A serial gambler, Corby is known to ride many outrageous footy multis with the hope of retiring by age 40. His poor wife has given up any hope of Corby ever winning a big multi but as his biggest supporter and regularly moe's the lawns and does all the chores so Corby can dedicate even more time to the players on his fantasy team.
Refers to himself as “Uncle Wayne” in reference to his comparison to Wayne Bennett. They share a similar hairline and dress sense but they win comps and he totally owns TK on the biggest stage.
Has asked to be referred to as “champ” and will start 2021 as Kent Kup Premiership favourite.
Andy Burden AKA Andy
Andy is the veteran of the Talking League team having played NRL fantasy for 7 years. He was the inaugural winner of Kent Kup, a prestigious league he formed with his best mates.
Andy has been the stand out performer of the league which includes four minor premierships in six seasons. Despite his consistency, he is often told that he won a “soft comp” and that monkey on his shoulder still stands today.
Likens playing fantasy to Christmas day and has a tendency to fall in love with several players a season and talk them up to the group as POD and state of origin players.
Playing NRL Fantasy has widened his knowledge from following his beloved but misfiring Parramatta Eels players to an intimate and sometimes weird knowledge of the squads around the NRL, he can even tell your what the players ate for breakfast prior to a game.
