From the expertsThe low down from those in the know
Australia and New Zealand could scarcely be more evenly matched heading into today’s colossal World Cup clash in Auckland.
We are almost two weeks into the World Cup and one of the highlights has been the performances of at least three of the associate countries.
A Terry Antonis winner has handed a 10-man Sydney FC victory over Western Sydney in a 4-3 blockbuster derby.
The secret to Michael Cheika’s coaching success is making things simpler, then turning the speed and intensity right up to 11.
Australia’s cricketers have long been regarded as the masters of verbal aggression.
The Gold Coast Titans’ troubles have deepened, with former player Ashley Harrison the latest to be arrested over the trouble-plagued NRL club’s drug scandal.
Gold Coast captain Gary Ablett says the drug allegations against ex-teammate Karmichael Hunt are a shock but he doesn’t think any current Suns AFL players will be embroiled in Queensland’s cocaine scandal.
Patrons who regularly attend Eden Park have become used to the asymmetries that mark the classic New Zealand compromise to the king code of rugby.
Marco Bresciano, up there with the most technically gifted Australians to pull on a Socceroos jersey, has recently announced his international retirement, less than a month after winning the Asian Cup.
The World Cup. What do those words mean to you? To me they mean one thing: the best of the best, competing for the ultimate prize. And they mean another thing: excellence.
While Mick Malthouse once preached that it was ok for the ox to be slow because the earth was patient, he obviously doesn’t think the average footy fan possesses the same tolerances as our gentle planet.
It’s been a polarising week of prominent dudes done wrong. A hairy and half-naked Merv Hughes offended campers in the African jungle, John Travolta creeped out Hollywood with his slinky hands and weird uncle kisses, and Glenn McGrath’s gun love was embarrassingly laid bare.
Yesterday afternoon something quite remarkable happened. With four balls remaining, and no wickets to spare, Afghanistan secured their maiden World Cup victory against a devastated Scotland, who were also searching for their first World Cup win.
I’m very happy to report a much improved round of tipping from the Experts in Round 2, which has eased concerns as to the viability of the panel.
My first win as a trainer was spine tingling. I’ve ridden plenty of Group 1 winners, but I still had a big shiver go down my spine when Specific Choice got up at Ipswich on Wednesday.
Daniel Vettori believes Australia are wasting their time looking for a weakness in Brendon McCullum’s game.

Match Result What can you say? That certainly wasn’t one for the ages! A scrappy affair in Melbourne compounded by the dampness of the pitch. One highlight was the Brumbies’ rolling maul which looked dangerous every time they were in the Rebels’ 22. No real standouts in this game McMahon got through a mountain of […]
