Alasdair Hooper and Will Moulton are joined by Rugby League official and Leeds Rhinos' star Caitlin Beevers on episode 39 of SportSpiel. Feature Interview On our feature interview section (4:29) Will speaks to Caitlin who has already achieved so much at the age of 17. As part of Leeds Rhinos she already has two consecutive Challenge Cup victories - in 2018 and 2019 - and she has also been selected as part of the England squad for the Downer World Cup Nines in Sydney and the historic trip to Papua New Guinea. But Caitlin is no stranger to history having become the first female to ever referee a Rugby League game at Wembley Stadium last year. This is a game-changing athlete paving the way for other girls in her sport. Part Two Alasdair and Will present the news round-up (34:20) as they go through some of the important headlines that caught their eyes, including the latest in the Caster Semenya case, the conclusion of the Women's Ashes and the possibility of a female British and Irish Lions team. In our discussion topic this week (51:00) we look at gambling advertising after the introduction of a voluntary ban during pre-watershed live sporting action was introduced. We debate the effects it will have and ask if we're treating gambling addiction as seriously as we should be. Lastly we hold the latest round of Ask Alasdair (1:05:47) where Will asks Alasdair, and then the listeners, a sports trivia question.
