We are blessed in Australia to have so many world-class sportsmen and women to watch. These are my current top 10:
The rugby and rugby league judiciaries trod different paths with Brumby Henry Speight and Bulldog Josh Jackson, both charged with dangerous throws – a blight on both codes.
South African Gary Player is a golfing legend, and rarely does he criticise the sport that has been his life. But the 79-year-old has unloaded on Chambers Bay, the course for the 115th US Open.
Joe Tomane’s hat-trick of tries in the first 25 minutes set up the Brumbies’ crushing 39-19 win over the Stormers at Newlands, and a semi-final meeting against the table-topping Hurricanes at Wellington next Saturday night.
Jason Day’s courageous bid to win the US Open fell by the wayside thanks to a cold putter, as Jordan Spieth took command to win back-to-back majors when Dustin Johnson three-putted the last.
It’s high time Manly’s chairman Scott Penn showed Geoff Toovey the same loyalty Toovey has shown his career-long club as player and coach, especially after Manly’s 30-20 win over the Tigers at Brookvale last night to climb off the bottom of the NRL table.
