Joe Marler and James Slipper prop up the lads in an epic episode of the KOKO Show

Season 1, Ep. 10

This week on the KOKO Show we packed down with a pair of pretty props. The first cab off the rank is a man that tied Stephen Moore’s Australian Super Rugby appearances record, and is only a handful of Tests short of George Gregan in the international record race. That is right we are joined by Mr James Slipper to chat all things Super Rugby, the Eddie Jones aftermath and the upcoming Wallabies test season.


Plus, we delve into everyone’s Supper Sizzlers brought to you by BeefEater from week six of ‘Superb’ Rugby, so stay tuned to see who sizzled and seared in the eyes of the KOKO Crew.


As is the motto of our show, one guest is fun, but two guests is a bloody great time. So, our second guest this week is England’s inked up enigma and true character of the game, all the way from the front seat of his car we were joined by the one and only Mr Joe Marler.


His big boy energy will fill your eyes and ears for a ripper of a time, we guarantee an episode full of great yarns, belly laughs and a quiz to end all quizzes. So uncork your good liquor, throw on your elasticated pants and slip into your favourite moomoo.


For this episode we encourage everyone to embrace and appreciate your inner thicc boy/girl, because it’s time for a front row sized session of Kick Offs and Kick Ons.

    On this week's dose of extra KOKO content we crown the winner of the ‘Debate the Top Eight’ competition.Four weeks ago the lads laid out their predictions of the final eight teams left in the Suber(b) Rugby Playoffs and now the results are in, and not unlike an episode of The Jerry Springer show two of the boys will be told “you are not the winner”.Through a myriad of complex algorithms and Mensa level math, our team of number crunching boffins have come to the conclusion there is only one daddy of the ‘Debate the Top Eight’ title.So sit on the edge of your futon, throw on your UGGs and chew your nails down to the quick, as we go through the results to crown The KOKO Champion. 
  • 19. Ali Williams and Harry Wilson join The KOKO Show for a Raucous Rugby Roundtable

    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.

  • 18. Quade Cooper Dazzles The KOKO Show with his Zen Master Ways

    01:40:17
    This week on the KOKO show we are proud to announce our new headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren in connection with our dear friends at MYER. With the lights burning bright on the show we are now able to afford some A-grade guests, so this week we have lined up an absolute cracker. This man is one of Aussie Rugby’s most exciting players, with footwork and ball skills that leave opposing players tied up like German soft pretzels. He burst onto the scene in the mid 2000’s as the prodigy to end all prodigies, and boy he didn’t disappoint. That is right, this week we are joined by Brissy’s boxing bad boy, the quick, the quiet and the quirky, Mr Quade Cooper.Plus, with Polo Ralph Lauren as our new sponsor we are rolling out a brand new segment called ‘Match Fit’, where we break down the boy’s looks for the show and have a deep dive into their aesthetic choices and fashion forward vibes. We also deliver all the fan favourites, as we unpack the penultimate round of the Super(b) Rugby regular season, we debrief on another disappointing Wallaroos showing, we have a ‘Social Snitches’ that turns back time and finally we give some love to our Northern Hemisphere legends after an epic Champions Cup Final. We are the gift that can now give more, as we have a true blue chip headline sponsor to back our shenanigans, so sit back relax and ask yourself the age old question “Do you think I can rock a turtleneck sweater this winter?” It’s now time for Kick Offs and Kick Ons.   TIMESTAMPS:00:00 - START OF THE SHOW00:16 - HEADLINE SPONSOR ANNOUNCEMENT01:19 - INTRODUCE THE BOYS 04:24 - HEALTH CHECK WITH THE BOYS 06:55 - SWOOP’S PACKING POSITANO’S PEBBLES08:48 - DREW FLYING ON A PRIVATE JET 10:31 - SAN DIEGO LEGION UPDATE 12:38 - ‘MATCH FIT’ BROUGHT TO YOU BY POLO RALPH LAUREN 16:03 - SOCIAL SNITCHES 21:09 - RUGBY ROUNDUP SEGMENT 24:08 - ADDING TOM WRIGHT TO THE HALFWAY WALLABIES XV31:13 - ADDING THE JUNKYARD DOG TO THE HALFWAY WALLABIES XV36:57 - SUPER SIZZLERS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BEEFEATER 41:07 - WALLAROOS V BLACK FERNS DEBRIEF 43:04 - NORTHERN HEMISPHERE LEGENDS SEGMENT 52:18 - INTRODUCE QUADE COOPER 55:48 - QUADE TALKING ABOUT JAPAN AND THE SEASON JUST GONE 58:20 - QUADE ON PLAYING WITH WILL GENIA AGAIN 59:00 - QUADE ON JAPAN RUGBY GROWING THE GAME01:02:59 - PROF ASKING QUADE ABOUT LIFE IN JAPAN AND THE ONSEN CULTURE01:06:50 - QUADE ON HIS RUGBY FUTURE 01:07:50 - QUADE ON LEARNING TO LOVE TRAINING 01:11:33 - QUADE ON MISSING THE RWC AND WALLABIES FUTURE 01:14:07 - QUADE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SENIOR PLAYERS IN A SQUAD 01:17:06 - WHICH YOUNG 10 WOULD QUADE PICK FOR THE WALLABIES? 01:18:24 - START ONE, BENCH ONE AND DROP ONE - THE QUADE EDITION01:24:50 - THE KOKO QUIZ WITH QUADE COOPER 01:35:34 - QUADE ON HIS LOVE OF CLOTHES AND HIS BRAND SHOSAI 01:36:57 - PROF ASKS THE BOYS IF THEY THINK QUADE WILL BE IN THE WALLABIES 01:37:12 - POLO RALPH LAUREN PLUG01:39:09 - FAREWELLS AND 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%20LaurenBUY YOUR KOKO MERCHANDISE RIGHT NOW - www.budgysmuggler.com.au/thekokoshowMake sure you follow us on all socials:INSTA: @kickoffskickons TWITTER/X: @kickoffskickons YOUTUBE: @kickoffsandkickons TIKTOK: @kickoffskickons If you do want to talk about sponsorship or anything business related then please do get in touch with us info@shtn.com.au.

  • 16. Ma’a Nonu is the Larger than Life Centre of attention this week on The KOKO Show

    01:28:12
    This week on The KOKO Show the lads go wall to wall footy with a couple of cheeky yarns sprinkled into the mix. We deliver a comprehensive ‘Rugby Roundup’ segment unpacking and unfurling Round 12 of the Super(b) Rugby, illuminating the teams that are in the hunt for glory and the others that can start preparing for a debaucherous Mad Monday.With this in mind the lads don their outdoor aprons armed with their lucky tongs and serve you guys a smokey and saucy selection of ‘Super Sizzlers’, thanks to our friends at BeefEater and AppliancesOnline. We also dive into the unfortunate result for the Wallaroos in their first test match of the year, as they went down to the maple syrup crushing Canadians in Sydney.However, this week our piste de resistance is currently considered a ‘Northern Hemisphere Legend’, but really is a Southern Hemi Sensation. This man is widely considered as one of the greatest centres the rugby world has ever seen, a man so bold he refuses to get old, with nicknames like ‘The Tank’ and ‘The Rock’ opposing player often felt liquid filling their sock. This man is a gentleman and a scholar so please stand up and holla, yes of course, it is the one and only Mr Ma’a Nonu.So sit back, get yourself a plate with all the fixings and slip into your Sunday best as we spread another ‘Two-Time’ RWC champ across your soundwaves.
