  • 25. Jonathan ‘Fox’ Davies brings some tangy tales from Wales this week on The KOKO Show

    01:33:09
    This week on The KOKO Show the boys bask in the ethereal light of back-to-back Wallabies victories over the willing Welsh, with the main focus being getting lit and talking Schmidt. As the Wallabies remain on pace for complete rugby world domination, the crew also find some time to break down the other ‘BIG DAWG’ Internationals from across the weekend, which saw the All Blacks pants England, Ireland put the Boks on the rocks and the Arigies fry up the French. With all this global footy lovin’ going on, we thought it would be fitting to bring in a guest that has faced all these foes and has come out the other side still baby faced and bushy tailed. This fella has played over 90 caps for Wales, he is a Six Nations Champion and has represented the Lions on six occasions. He is the headgear wearing hottie, the Bancyfelin bruiser and the vixen from the Valleys, it is of course Jonathan ‘Fox’ Davies. Plus, thanks to our headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren brought to you by our beautiful friends at Myer, the lads are looking luminous, luscious and quite simply lovable in another stylish installment of ‘Match Fit’. We know we are too generous, but when you think we couldn't fit any more into this bloody show, we somehow find enough room to squeeze in the world's greatest pie and a little bit of Quiz action. That's right thanks to Four’N Twenty for sponsoring the KOKO Quiz and not only do they make pies that are 100% Aussie Beef, they are also 100% bloody delicious.So, instead of taking a long walk off a short jetty, just throw on your most luxurious activewear, Fosbury flop onto your favourite ottoman and just let the dulcet tones of four half pissed lunatics try and tell you what happened this week in the world of rugby. That’s right, it's time for Kick Offs and Kick Ons. Timecodes: 00:00 - Show Intro 01:10 - Polo Ralph Lauren and Four’N Twenty sponsorship plugs02:38 - Intros for the boys 05:43 - Recap of the crew’s week13:00 - Huge public response to Hugo sining last week15:02 - Rugby Round Up: Wallabies v Wales Game 222:47 - Prof talks about how Joe Schmidt is a calming influence23:42 - Introduce Jonathan Fox Davies27:16 - Best game in Jonathan Davies’ career28:30 - Jonathan getting picked over Brian O’Driscoll29:53 - Swoop has Brian O’Driscoll’s last Lions jersey 32:37 - Every team loves playing in Wales33:27 - Jonathan Davies on the current state of Welsh Rugby38:00 - Jonathan Davies wants to play Super Rugby44:47 - The KOKO Quiz brought to you by Four’N Twenty54:12 - Farewell for Jonathan Fox Davies 55:32 - Live Show plug at Wallabies v Georgia game57:02 - Holiday Swoop’s Hot Spots - Paddington 58:32 - Wallaroos v Black Ferns review 59:47 - ‘Match Fit’ brought to you by Polo Ralph Lauren01:05:39 - Socials and merch plug - KOKO Website 01:06:51 - Northern Hemisphere Legends/Losers01:07:27 - Ireland v South Africa review 01:16:34 - All Blacks v England review01:21:09 - Argentina v France review 01:24:01 - Other International Test match scores01:28:12 - Final thoughts01:32:16 - Close of the showBig 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.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.
  • 24. Long necked legend Darcy Breen steals the show on the newest installment of ‘Bits with Gits’.

    23:52
    As you all know The KOKO Show always goes above and beyond for its fans and for a little extra content snack this week Mr Moneybags Giteau sits down with the fearless leader of the San Diego Seals team, and Legion tighthead prop, Mr Darcy Breen.Not unlike Bigfoot or the abominable snowman, we have been tracking down this big bopper for ages and now we have finally landed the man with more vertebrae than Healthy Harold the Giraffe. Gits picks his brain about a myriad of topics, such as, where his footy journey began, how to perfect the art of scrummaging, the benefits of a death-shake for bulking and why Mrs Incredible’s flexibility is so bloody attractive.So please sit back, keep your posture on point and the core engaged, as we wouldn't want anyone to slip a disc whilst listening to this neck roll of an interview. It’s time for the newest instalment of ‘Bits with Gits’.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.kickoffsandkickons.comMake 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.
  • 24. Test rugby is BACK! The KOKO Show dives into a fabulous feast of International footy.

    01:23:15
    This week on The KOKO Show we unshackle ourselves from the world of high-end rugby guests to get down and dirty with the majestic temptress that is International Rugby. Prof and the boys peel back the layers on all of the big matches from the weekend, with special attention placed on the Wallabies' big win over the luckless Welsh. The crew give their in depth opinions and hard hitting analysis of Australia’s new era of rugby, as the men in gold successfully started the ‘Schmidting It In’ process with a gritty win in game one of their July Series.Plus, we unpack all of the big DAWG duels that certainly lived up to their hype, with South Africa downing a gallant Ireland, New Zealand edging out a persistent England and France beating the Argies with the blunt end of a baguette. With week one of global games coming to a close it was a dominant display by the teams from the Southern semicircle of the world, which led the lads to renaming this week's juicy dose of ‘Northern Hemisphere Losers’ in order to be more accurate. Also in the show, we dish up a classic case of ‘What’s Drewing’, Prof is the target of his first ‘Social Snitch’ and finally Adam ‘Pieman’ Ashley-Cooper goes for a three peat in the Four’N Twenty KOKO Quiz.Last, but certainly not least, thanks to our headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren the boys are literally wearing too many threads to count and boy do they look sexy in this week's installment of ‘Match Fit’. So put on your cork hats, firmly re-plug your double pluggers and throw on your going out footy shorts, because the bloody Wallabies are back in the winners circle and it is time to celebrate with your favourite ra ra ramblers.We present to you episode 24 of Kick Offs and Kick Ons. TIMECODES 00:00 - Intros 06:04 - The boys weekend at the footy 06:47- Swoops Defender outing at the rugby 08:46 - WALLABIES v WALES review 10:52 - Swoop on the Wallabies positives18:38 - The boys talk about Joe Schmidt’s first game21:26 - Swoop on what being a coach is like 24:50 - What Wales has to do in game two to win27:34 - WALLAROOS V FIJIANA review30:08 - ‘Match Fit’ brought to you by Polo Ralph Lauren 35:54 - Social plug, merch drops and live show info38:05 - Social Snitches39:57 - Northern Hemisphere Legends 41:08 - SOUTH AFRICA V IRELAND review43:45 - Gits praises Cheslin Kolbe52:54 - Holiday Swoop’s Hot Spots 57:07 - ALL BLACKS V ENGLAND review01:06:01 - ARGENTINA V FRANCE review01:08:54 - Smaller international results 01:09:47 - What's Drewing?01:11:02 - The Four’N Twenty KOKO Quiz01:18:41 - Final Thoughts01:19:40 - Hugo singing ‘Waltzing Matilda’ to finish 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.kickoffsandkickons.comMake 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.

As we head into our 23rd week of life, the boys are joined by our favourite pint sized pioneer of quick ball and shit talk who is known for his skill, leadership and his beautiful top lip warmer. It is of course our number one Wallabies halfback born in a place named after a baked good, the one and only Mr Nic William White. With Nic in tow we submerge our souls deep down into the inner workings of Wallaby Camp, getting all the tea from our little mate as the Wallabies shape up to shatter the will of Wales.As aforementioned, the boys get stuck into the majestic galaxy that is test footy as we build up and break down all the big International series that will be pleasuring your eyes and ears in the coming months. There is of course a little taste of home for those in the top half of the globe with a juicy ‘Northern Hemisphere Legends’ segment. Plus, back by popular demand Mr DOGG gives you the Cape Town edition of ‘Holiday Swoop’s Hot Spots’ and at the end we get ‘quizzy with it’ thanks to our dear friends at Four’N Twenty.And I know what you are all thinking, where is the bloody ‘Match Fit’ segment? Well hold your Polo horses because with our headline sponsor at Polo Ralph Lauren the boys get real drippy this week with their fly and fresh fits.

  • 22. Sariah Paki and Tim Walsh set The KOKO Show Ablaze as the Paris Olympics Approach

    01:40:17
    This week on the KOKO Show we give you a double guest charcuterie board filled to the brim with Olympic sized treats. We are joined by the one woman wrecking crew who prefers flattening opponents than crossing the whitewash, she is known as the Narrabeen Knuckle Duster, but we just like to call her Miss Sariah Paki. On top of having one of the star players, we thought let's also get the gentleman that puts these gold medal gurus through their paces. He is the Russel Crowe of the Women’s Sevens set up and boy does he have a beautiful mind, it is the mercurial messenger, Mr Tim Walsh. With the KOKO torch lit and the ceremony over, Sariah and Tim dove deep into their Olympic preparations, discussed the sacrifices for success and illuminated the best path for their gold medal domination in Paris.   Plus, the boys most certainly jumped through all the Olympic rings to bring you your favourite KOKO segments including a full ‘Rugby Roundup’ where we breakdown the Blues v Chiefs final, we had a quick visit to Dr ‘What’s Drewing?’ to discuss Joe Schmidt’s first Wallaby Squad, as well as a little squizz at the winners and losers out of the All Blacks selection session. The boys then took a little jaunt North of the Equator to unpack all the footy action over the weekend which included England pounding Japan, the Springboks emasculating the Welsh, the Top 14 Semis and finally the URC Final.Just kick back in your comfy, stylish and durable threads from our headline sponsor Polo Ralph Lauren and let’s bloody manifest about living out our Olympic dream of being higher, faster and stronger together. So, all that is left to do is take your favourite Matt Giteau gummy, run to the fridge for snacks and hammer-curl a glass of crisp Savvy B, it’s time for another session of Kick Offs and Kick Ons.00:00 - Start of the show 00:33 - Polo Ralph Lauren Plug 01:07 - Show intro02:24 - The boys intros04:00 - Recap of the boy’s weekends 07:42 - ‘Match Fit’ segment brought to you by Polo Ralph Lauren13:16 - Socials and website plug 14:22 - Daniel Ricciardo loves the KOKO merch15:21 - Social Snitches segment17:39 - Introducing Tim Walsh and Sariah Paki37:09 - Who are the Aussie Women's Sevens biggest rivals40:01 - Tim Walsh almost got Gits to play sevens41:51 - Bringing fifteens players into the sevens last minute45:09 - The KOKO Quiz 59:08 - Rugby Roundup Segment 59:18 - Super Rugby Final01:04:18 - What’s Drewing? - Discussing the Wallabies and All Blacks squads01:10:43 - Northern Hemisphere Legends01:29:02 - Top 14 Semi-Finals 01:33:53 - Super Sizzler brought to you by BeefEater and special KOKO ‘Beef10’ discount code01:38:49 - Thanks to Polo Ralph Lauren our headline sponsor01:39:33 - Signing off the showBig 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 the code 'Beef10' 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.
  • 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.
