The national confidence guide for Australia’s weekend of doom

The national confidence guide for Australia's weekend of doom

7 hours ago

It’s been bad news out the wazoo around this place lately, with dodgy senators a-go-go, petroleum prices on the rise and Big Brother still surviving television’s axe.

Hard yakkers: Australia's greatest sledging XI

As I’ve watched our boys struggle against Pakistan inside Dubai’s silent bowl of chairs, my mind has raced with the usual juvenile tactics that become attractive when your mob is copping a pasting.

17 Oct 2014

In a pseudo-exclusive, operatives from The Roar have intercepted a genuine fake of the open letter from Jarryd Hayne that called an audible on his plans to be a career Eel. While a more thoughtful, heartfelt and heavily edited version was eventually posted on the Parramatta website by the departing fullback, there was an original […]

Souths can’t repeat the feat, but could they kill the wrestle?

Souths can't repeat the feat, but could they kill the wrestle?

11 Oct 2014

Onya Rabbitohs, you brained it. But as the temporary tattoos and 90-proof breath start to fade after a week of rampant ceremony, it’s time for bed so the rest of us losers can candidly discuss things. Firstly, dynasty talk.
