It was bloody good, but it was still not better than ’89

The rugby league grand final is something we all look forward to with great anticipation. We talk about it and read about it virtually all week leading up to the game. We plan barbecues, invite mates and buy beer.

The family and the people’s game: FFA’s Lowy dynasty

It was not an upset victory, nor a big-name player signing, but Football Federation Australia’s announcement that chairman Frank Lowy will be succeeded by his son Steven could be the most significant moment in Australian football over the next year.

Cricket Australia’s latest idea has been a disaster

Cricket Australia thought it would be a good idea to include a team of young men in this season’s One Day Cup. The result has so far been a chastening experience for those thrown into the fire.

Now the dust has settled, Wayne Bennett was right about golden point

I pen this as I finally emerge from 72 hours of oblivion following Sunday night’s grand final. That theatrical beast was two hours of the most exhausting emotional abuse I have ever endured – and I’ve been on a Japanese game show.

What has it come to? An Englishman supporting the Aussies

A few days ago I sat in front of my TV and watched a rugby team who were the real deal. Dominant in the scrum, dynamic in the loose, untouchable at the breakdown, a flyhalf at the peak of his powers and a back line that could both defend and attack in equal measure.

For so many, the football pitch is more than a patch of grass. It’s a sanctuary. The dirt patches on the local field for an all-age Division 12 match can feel like Suncorp Stadium if you try hard enough.

The declining interest in Formula One

Being still a young man at 20, I feel disappointed knowing I missed golden eras of Formula One history. Moments such as the amazing James Hunt and Niki Lauda rivalry of the 1970s as well as the intensely heated Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna debacle of the late 1980s and early ’90s.

The Wallabies well and truly dispatched England on Saturday, winning in a way that we are unaccustomed to seeing from an Australian team. A hugely dominant forward performance set the tone from the first tackle, and the team adjusted well to the shifting nature of the game.
