Today on The Country, Jamie Mackay continues his tribute to the Apollo 11 moon landing with a what is quite possibly a tall tale about Neil Armstrong.

On with the show:

Lewis Ferris:

Our Met Service forecaster says some welcomed and meaningful rain is on the way for the dry east coast of the South Island.


Chris Russell:

Jeremy Rookes:

Barry Soper:

Grant Nisbett:

We head to Buenos Aires where this week's $100 TAB sports bet of the week sees us backing the All Blacks (11-20 margin over Argentina) and Ryan Fox for a top 10 finish in the British Golf Open.
