Does JWH stand for judiciary’s weekly hearing?

Does JWH stand for judiciary’s weekly hearing?

If a scrapbook of Jared Waerea-Hargreaves’ rugby league career is being kept, I suspect his children and grandchildren will be amazed by his abilities, but disappointed when they get the chance to read his rap sheet. Many of his ‘highlights’ can easily turn into low-lights, such is the way he plays the game. The Roosters […]

Write your own NRL finals fairytale

Write your own NRL finals fairytale

10 Sep 2014

What could (or will) be the best sports story to emerge from the 2014 NRL finals series?

21 Aug 2014

This week’s development in ASADA’s probe into Cronulla for alleged drug-taking looks to be headed straight for the courts. I can’t see any players admitting guilt in order to escape the maximum penalty from the authorities. Last year, the NRL found the Cronulla club guilty of failing to provide proper ‘duty of care’ and imposed […]

So your team’s missed the eight: who will you cheer for?

So your team's missed the eight: who will you cheer for?

20 Aug 2014

If your NRL team doesn’t make the final eight, which club will you secretly (or otherwise) hope goes the whole hog and wins the title? I have always found it an interesting exercise to put this question to my mates if their team is ‘prematurely’ on vacation when the big stuff rolls around. Some of […]
