Michael Cheika has mounting Waratah problems

3 Apr 2014

Losing to the Brumbies annoyed Waratah coach Michael Cheika, but losing to the Sharks was worse. Cheika wears his heart on his sleeve and, like most dyed-in-the-wool Randiwck men, doesn’t take losing at all well. The coaches’ box door was worse for wear after the Brumbies, and a cameraman copped a gobful on the sideline […]

Journeyman Steven Bowditch held on like grim death to win his first USPGA tournament on Sunday, taking out the Texas Open at San Antonio by one shot after a bogey at the last.

Cheika gets to test Tahs' depth against the Sharks

29 Mar 2014

Waratahs coach Michael Cheika has shown commendable faith in picking debutant Jono Lance to fill the big shoes of injured Israel Folau against the Sharks in Durban tomorrow night. It would have been so easy to switch the experienced Kurtey Beale from inside centre, where he has been a revelation, to fullback. That would have […]

Adam Scott follows in the Shark’s faltering footsteps

Adam Scott follows in the Shark's faltering footsteps

25 Mar 2014

Watching Adam Scott butcher the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on Monday morning brought back all the nightmares Greg Norman’s devoted fans have experienced over the years.
