Southland Sharks coach Judd Flavell joins the Classic NBL Podcast (From 10.40 to 37.10) to talk about the new faces in the Sharks camp, his plans for his remaining import spot, the difficulties of travel for the Sharks, and to share a story of perseverance from one of his new local players.

Niall Anderson and Sam Garriock then try and peg how the Sharks will fare in 2018, while Sam shares the fantastic story behind how the Rangers were late for the NBL Blitz.
