Danny Care and an exclusive interview with Kurtley Beale on The KOKO Show

Season 1, Ep. 13

This week on the KOKO show we give you the old school two guest turnaround, that's right more bloody exclusives than the humble rugby fan can poke a stick at.


First up the lads run you through a hilarious Goit inspired ‘Social Snitches’ from fourteen years ago, we also dive into everything Super(b) Rugby with another lashing of ‘Super Sizzlers’ brought to you by our friends at BeefEater and Appliances Online.


Then we really turn this mofo up to a ten, the KOKO crew have an exclusive first time interview with a dear friend of the show and new Western Force recruit, the one and only Mr Kurtley ‘KB’ Beale. But as wise men have always said, one guest is cute, and two guests are totally SLAY.


That is right we have doubled up for all our NHL’s (Northern Hemisphere Legends) and we have brought you the little legend from Leeds and the hottest half in the business, so please get your pump on and quaff your hair for the lightweight lothario that is Danny Care.


So kick back and relax as we wrap up the world of rugby like a delicious midnight kebab after a session with Holiday Swoop.


It’s time for Kick Offs and Kick Ons.

  • 21. The KOKO Show Delivers Another Naughty and Nostalgic No Guest Nonsense Episode

    01:25:25
    This week on The KOKO Show, the lads go free solo on another ‘No Guest Nonsense’ episode. We felt it was time to once again serve up a raw and glam-free helping of footy, fun and complete fuck-wittery. With Mr Muscles Matt Giteau joining us from the Midwestern utopia that is Chicago we had to get straight to business, whilst still treating you to a full KOKO buffet and still ensuring that the ‘Imposing Imp’ was early to bed and well rested for his big game.Thanks to our headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren, in partnership with MYER, the fellas are looking on fleek and are dripping with sumptuous style, for another installment of the always fashionable ‘Match Fit’. Plus, we give you a wall to wall ‘Rugby Roundup’ segment, breaking down what happened in the Super(b) Rugby Semi Finals, previewing the final between the Blues and the Chiefs, as well as a healthy dose of medicinal madness from Dr ‘What’s Drewing?’.However, the fun doesn't stop there as we keep chillin’ and grillin’ with our dear friends at BeefEater and Appliances Online, throwing a couple of grassfed ‘Super Sizzlers’ on the barbie for you all to enjoy. As you all know the boys threw together a ‘Halfway Wallabies XV’ mid-way through the season and now that all the Aussie teams are out and Schmidty has his silky hands all over his cattle, we thought it was pertinent to make it official with The KOKO Show’s ‘Full-Way Wallabies Starting XV’.So throw in your earpods and crank up that sound cancellation, drown out life and just bask in the beauty that is ‘No Guest Nonsense’, then get on the Internet and buy some Polo Ralph Lauren garb and a bloody BeefEater, so we can keep making your Tuesday’s tangy. It's time for Kick Offs and Kick Ons. TIMESTAMPS:00:00 - Start of the show 00:50 - Fireball toast for our 21st show 01:33 - Intro of the show 03:32 - Matt Giteau update Chicago06:51 - Recap of weekend activities 15:39 - ‘Match Fit’ brought to you by Polo Ralph Lauren20:36 - Social plug 21:01 - Website and live show plug22:10 - Merch update 23:13 - ‘Social Snitches’ segment  26:06 - ‘Rugby Roundup’ segment39:53 - Super Sizzler Segment brought to you by BeefEater and Appliances Online48:27 - Say goodbye to Matt Giteau 49:51 - ‘The Full-Way Wallabies Starting XV’ segment 01:02:33 - ‘What’s Drewing?’ segment 01:08:49 - ‘Northern Hemisphere Legends’ segment  01:14:48 - The KOKO Quiz01:21:11 - Website plug01:22:19 - Polo Ralph Lauren plug01:22:54 - Social Plug01:24:38 - 21st birthday beer chug01:25:02 - Close of the show Big thanks to Polo Ralph Lauren for their support and remember you can buy everything you saw on the show from you local MYER or online - https://www.myer.com.au/b/Polo%20Ralph%20LaurenGet yourself 10% off with this Beefeater code and also support the show!AUSTRALIA - https://www.appliancesonline.com.au/brand/beefeaterEUROPE - https://beefeaterbbqeurope.co.uk/pages/contact-usBUY YOUR KOKO MERCHANDISE RIGHT NOW - www.kickoffsandkickons.comMake sure you follow us on all socials:INSTA: @kickoffskickonsTWITTER/X: @kickoffskickonsYOUTUBE: @kickoffsandkickonsTIKTOK: @kickoffskickonsIf you do want to talk about sponsorship or anything business related then please do get in touch with us info@shtn.com.au.

    01:42:13
    This week on The KOKO Show the lads bring you two legendary rugby guests, one from yesteryear and the other currently doing his thing in the world of footy. Our first guest that joined us live in the studio is a long streak of pelican you know what, one of the greatest Kiwi players of all time and for over ten years was a real pain in the Wallabies’ butts. He is the know-it-all from the North Island, New Zealand's lanky lineout lothario and he is the man that got bail after one too many an ale, it is the one and only Mr Ali Williams.It has always been this show's mission statement, what is better than one big bastard? That's right, two massive bastards.So, all the way from the Queensland Reds inner sanctum we bring you the Gunnedah Goliath, one half of the ‘Brisbane Bash Brothers’ and a man that has more try assists than hairs on his head, it is of course Mr Harry ‘the future’ Wilson.We know what you are thinking, what else can these pricks pack into one show? Alas, not only do we shower you with wagyu grade talent, we serve up a full Rugby Roundup, a smattering of news from north of the invisible line and we preview the Super(b) Rugby Quarter-Finals.Last, but certainly the most important, thanks to our new headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren brought to us by MYER we get the lads and their sloppy rigs to hit the catwalk for another edition of our new and very dapper segment ‘Match Fit’.So sit back and relax, slip into your favourite preppy yet sporty fit, adorn your shoulders with a glorious knit and tune into KOKO as we talk footy and shit.
