Kevin Pietersen’s book hits the fan

Kevin Pietersen's book hits the fan

9 Oct 2014

The cricket world was used to Kevin Pietersen master-blasting his way through the best attacks during his 104 Test career for England from 2005 to January this year, that included three double centuries, 20 tons, at an average of 47.28.

Michael Clarke's fitness is a genuine worry

8 Oct 2014

The Australian cricket selectors’ biggest worry this summer will be Test skipper Michael Clarke.

I have genuine sympathy for the Bulldogs’ inspirational skipper Michael Ennis that he’ll miss the NRL grand final tonight through injury. Ennis had been included in the side pending a fitness test, but it was crystal clear the 30-year-old’s foot – fractured in two places – wasn’t anywhere near fit enough for such a big […]

Hasler, not history, is the Rabbitohs’ biggest hurdle

Hasler, not history, is the Rabbitohs' biggest hurdle

4 Oct 2014

If South Sydney are to win a record 21st rugby league premiership, their first in 43 years, they must first overcome ‘The Fox’. Des Hasler won’t be on the field, but he will be pulling the strings from the Bulldog’s coaching box. ‘The Fox’ will never blow his own trumpet, that’s not his bag as […]
