About

Ben Pobjie is a writer and comedian whose promising rugby career was tragically cut short the day he stopped playing rugby and had a pizza instead. The most he has ever cried was the day Balmain lost the 1989 grand final. Today he enjoys the frolics of Wallabies, Swans, baggy greens, and Storm.

The Olympics, and how they can be better

Olympic sport is, we can agree, pretty great. But it’s not as great as it could be: there is room for improvement, and all it takes is a bit of imagination and hard work.
