"Serious sport has nothing to do with fair play. It is bound up with hatred, jealousy, boastfulness, disregard of all rules and sadistic pleasure in witnessing violence: in other words, it is war minus the shooting." - George Orwell

With the Australian team still celebrating their victory in the Cricket World Cup, it’s time for a quick look back at an enjoyable tournament, albeit a very drawn out one.
We have now completed three rounds of the 2015 NRL season, and it’s almost impossible to keep up with all the different storylines circulating throughout rugby league this year.
We’ve now completed two rounds of the 2015 NRL season, and already some themes, trends and narratives are starting to emerge.
