An interesting story about the formative years of sports in Australia. I would encourage you to make your opinion count in the survey at the bottom of the article, just follow the link! Takes about 4 minutes

Is there room for a football State of Origin?

Very interesting conversation. I would encourage you to make your opinion count in the survey at the bottom of the article, just follow the link! Takes about 4 minutes

Is there room for a football State of Origin?

In terms of states, no. What i meant to say was that Northern NSW was also involved there. ACT (Or Federal Capital Territory as it was known then) was established in the 1920’s and an NT governing body as well in that priod

Is there room for a football State of Origin?

It’s a retrospective article about the last 12 months. He did prove me wrong in terms of my comments and opinion. 16 contributions in 22 games and an exciting player last season for the Jets right? Don’t know what’s underwhelming about that.

And again, with his work that he did in the regular season i think it’s fair to say the Jets mightn’t have been in as good as a position to get to a Grand Final.

Australian football's greatest players in the last year

Definitely some things to improve on Jordan.
Research is always key, facts, facts and more facts!!! but don’t stop writing. I was like you a few years ago, eager to write but sometimes it’s best just to slow down a bit and look over what you’ve written, double check, triple check all your elements and make sure everything adds up. I learnt it best to write an article if you are comfortable with all the research you’ve done that support your point. Look deeper, don’t be afraid to spend some late nights looking up archives of stats etc.
Don’t let people get you down but take some valuable lessons from it all!

Which A-League club is setting up best for the future?

FULL-TIME

Bobo becomes the highest scorer in an A-League season with 25 in 26 matches. They’ve equalled the record for most goals in a regular season with 63. The records keep tumbling as a Bobo brace tore Adelaide apart 3-0.

BOBO WHAT A BLOODY GOAL!

Ninkovic has the ball at his feet on the left side of the box and tries the shot but it’s deflected. It falls over to the right side of the box where Bobo pivots 180 degrees and volleys into the bottom left corner!
