My family and I were lucky enough to get tickets in the ballot to that night. I just remember the noise, the camera flashes and absolute elation in the crowd when she won. Best night of live sport I’ve ever been to.

Bugger, I told Scotty it was time to fiddle the books. Looks like the message got lost in translation

Bugger, looks like I will only take 2 off AJ’s lead this weekend

And now Wayne Bennett forced into isolation after a bubble breach…Rugby League…the gift that keeps on giving

Thanks, my ladder climb begins this week

Sharks are decimated tonight. Before the start of the season, our best case backline would have been 1. Moylan, 2. Morris, 3. Xerri, 4, Ramien, 5. Dugan, 6. Johnson and 7. Townsend. Only Johnson is playing tonight. Fifita remains out. I’m a Sharks fan but we should be outsiders at Suncorp

Freddy wants to solve an “identity crisis” by merging 4 Sydney clubs where tribalism represents a fair chunk of their supporter bases. How does this make any sense at all? He’s nuts

I’m a Sharks supporter but have gone the Broncos this week. This is exactly the type of match that Cronulla will forget to show up at.

I think a better attitude leads to resilience.

Resilience is the problem at the Broncos

sorry, what?

stop it kk, I feel like I am going to vomit.

Keep them coming, kk. AJ is going to sink under a sea of compliments.

Well, you are destined to get at least the Tigers vs Rabbits correct

I guess the real point is why is there a need to mix the game up when the players and fans are happy the way it is. I get your point about basketball. It’s worth remembering though that the WNBL is long established in Australia but Super Netball is much more popular. A Super Shot is not guaranteed to bring any new supporters through the door

Super Netball doesn't need to change

I’m in touch with reality, thanks, and the reality is the large majority of fans and players want the game to stay as is.

Super Netball doesn't need to change

It is a bit of a concern. At least I will get 1 back this weekend…

As an old opening bat, I’m offended. I did most of my scoring in the reverse “v”, between fine leg and 3rd slip

Hey NRL, where did all the talent go?

I will be blogging tonight if you are interested in Bulldogs and Roosters

Eight talking points from NRL Round 5

Come on AJ, you know you don’t win comps in April, or June in this case. I’m timing my run perfectly.

I checked the book of Gibson quotes. Maybe I misquoted his misquote

Cam, if you read the article, you would have noticed that the list was in chronological order, not ranking in terms of biggest miracle. Too hard to split in my opinion
