I will be doing my best, Larry! I promise.

Georgie Rowe-ing her way to Tokyo

Thanks for the support, Ben! Much appreciated.

And completely agree that that crossover doesn’t always work exceptionally well. I guess Georgie had the advantage of being very successful in rowing surf boats (I probably didn’t do her justice in the article – she is a champion in rowing surf boats too!!)

Really appreciate the support! Thanks Hugh!

Claudia ringing the Bell for women's rugby

So happy to know your daughters are growing up in a different world than I did, DJ!

Thanks, Tom! It is definitely starting to happen and last year the Wallaroos played more Test matches than ever before… but we still have some work to do before it catches up to the 7s space!

Where to next for women's cricket after the T20 World Cup?

I think we are already there!

IAP, I think that’s unfair – matches broke records in almost every single place they went.

From memory, the first game between Australia and India had over 13,000 which was a new record set for a stand-alone women’s cricket event in Australia.

What on earth has signaled to you that I am outraged?

When will players learn? Their behaviour impacts the bottom line

Trust me Jakeo… I am.

They broke team protocol. End of story. It had nothing to do with a ‘mob mentality’.

So as long as players win games they can do as they like off the field?

Nick, are you heading to the game this week? If so, an update would be great!

Why I'm not sold on the Cowboys in 2020

James, that is a really interesting question and one I haven’t considered!

Why I'm not sold on the Cowboys in 2020

When I saw the Ben Hampton selection, Les I just thought ‘the more things change, the more they stay the same’.

The Barry, I always feel more comfortable when you agree with me! 😂

Message to the Cowboys…. please no more block plays.

It’s not true, IAP.

Did you read my comments above about my experience growing up.

You can’t be what you can’t see and this ad gives a lot of people the opportunity to see themselves in the new ad.

New NRL ad is 'simply the best'

No, I disagree with that. The Karina Brown/Vanessa Foliaki moment happened during a time in our country’s history when the marriage equality debate was happening – in fact, I would expect to see that image recreated more now that we have marriage equality. The two women were trailblazers, just like that iconic image of Erin Phillips kissing her wife at the AFLW Awards a couple of years ago.

By that reasoning Ali Brigginshaw shouldn’t be in the ad either?

What does ‘woke’ mean?

The players involved in ‘the kiss’ play in the NRLW? Is that not part of the NRL?

‘People like me’.

And IAP, who are people like me?

They publicly said it because they were asked why they weren’t singing.

Do you see the difference?

And may I ask what indicators you have that suggest the game is dead and gone?

Literally every metric is on the rise.

I was going to use that very example spruce – if Billy Magoulias was wearing a Greek flag would we be saying anything?

The players only ‘sprouted’ it to the media when asked.

A couple of players have not been singing the anthem for several years. It became an issue when the media noticed that Cody Walker wasn’t singing.
