NSW coach Laurie Daley will regret not selecting Beau Scott and Michael Ennis for the Origin opener at ANZ Stadium on June 8.
I have to apologise in advance for cracking and putting pen to paper on the subject of Jarryd Hayne. I’d understand if my car was egged by irate citizens.

Before the trading period Geelong were paying $17 for the flag. More recently, they’re paying $4. The only other shortening of the odds that compares this year is in the preferred Prime Minister polls.
After a recent chat, it was really interesting watching a team in red and black making short work of their opposition over the weekend. And I’m not talking about what the Crusaders did to the Waratahs.

The story of Formula One’s power unit war has been more or less consistent since the hybrid formula debuted in 2014 – Mercedes first, everyone else second.

Taking a trip to the Gold Coast to put your feet up is hardly unusual. That a group of AFL footballers get to do it every fortnight doesn’t say great things about the Suns, though.
Sometimes I wish Jarryd Hayne had never played in that 2014 State of Origin series – the only one NSW have won in the last decade.

The Vixens are scared, at least they should be. Collingwood football club president Eddie McGuire, holder of one of the new Netball Australia licences, has reportedly quipped to the members of the Australian Netball League team the Victorian Fury “Girls, you will be playing for us next year and we play more than the other mob.”
Thirteen years on from the Socceroos’ shock 3-1 victory over the English juggernauts, the men in gold will be looking to emulate the same result from that cold night at Upton Park.
Pep Guardiola may have won a trophy for every 20 games or so he has managed, but he is not a ‘world class’ manager.
The biggest shock this season and probably one of the most talked about stories so far has to be the Fremantle Dockers’ fall from grace.
Donald Trump tried to be nice to someone this week. It went spectacularly wrong.
A 70-2 win-Loss record at the French Open. Nine Championships, with 363-34 on clay. The name is Rafael Nadal, the King of Clay.

Part tho of The Roar’s car-by-car preview of the 100th Indianapolis 500 continues, with rows seven through three taking us towards the sharp end of the field of thirty-three.
Those who said that Jarryd Hayne would never make it in the NFL and were willing him to fail have got their way.

Robbie Farah is still coming out of a concussion rehabilitation period and only just starting to participate in running sessions. By comparison, Michael Ennis is in the form of his life and has no injury worries at all. So what is the logic behind picking Farah for Origin Game 1?
Rugby players Ben Daley and Nick Phipps have both criticised Jarryd Hayne’s decision to seek out an Olympic spot for Fiji so close to the event.
