Glory glory to South Sydney spot on

Glory glory to South Sydney spot on

7 Oct 2014

Souths co-owner Russell Crowe won his Oscar in 2000 portraying Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius in Gladiator. On Sunday night at ANZ in the NRL grand final, Sam Burgess proved he’s a modern-day gladiator. Burgess played the decider after fracturing his cheekbone in the very first tackle of the game, following his accidental head clash […]

Boks and Pumas set up shock Rugby Championship victories

Boks and Pumas set up shock Rugby Championship victories

6 Oct 2014

Jean de Villiers and Agustin Creevy sported the biggest smiles in international rugby over the weekend. In chronological order, centre De Villiers led the Boks to a 27-25 win over the All Blacks at Ellis Park in a magnificent game of rugby. It was their first win over the men-in-black for three years, and the […]

The last time Souths and Canterbury played each other in a grand final was 1967, and it was memorable for many reasons. It was the first of the limited tackles, just four, after years of unlimited tackles. In the preliminary final Canterbury knocked off St George 12-11, ending the Dragons’ world-record 11-year dynasty as premiers. […]

James Graham v Sam Burgess is worth the grand final price of admission alone

James Graham v Sam Burgess is worth the grand final price of admission alone

2 Oct 2014

Every rugby league player, fan and media has far more respect for Bulldog powerhouse prop James Graham than the NRL referees. The whistle-blowers could only manage to award Graham 15 points in the Dally Ms, making the Englishman equal 16th on the pecking order, 17 points shy of the co-winners Johnathan Thurston and Jarryd Hayne.
