The hero we need…

Who should take the helm at Rugby Australia?

Would anyone be truly shocked if the ex-players were going on fan forums to sway public opinion?

Michael Lynagh withdraws signature from captains' letter as Eales, Shaw voice their support of Rugby AU

A very enjoyable look back at the best season of the last 20 years, thank you.

Schumacher on Rubens on the start/finish line was one of the most disgraceful acts I have seen in F1. Ten years on, I still believe that Schumacher should have been banned for life and faced attempted murder charges. I know how extreme that sounds, but the footage says it all.

Racing revisitations: 2010 F1 season - Part 2

Thanks. I’ll have to give it a listen once I finish this series (so I don’t unconsciously copy them).

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

In their debut season, they suffered the two biggest losses in premiership history… in consecutive games.

I’ll stop.

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

You’re right; I meant to write national free-to-air. And I think the Steelers and Knights games may have been shown on WIN and NBN respectively.

If they were shown live, they wouldn’t have clashed with Wimbledon…

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

You could call it Superroar.

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

The fun facts have become the bane of my existence, but I’m glad they’re appreciated.

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

Just wait until I cover the World Club Championship!

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

That last sentence makes my skin crawl. Well played!

Super League revisited: The Super League clubs

They actually had zero tackle after a kick reception (to try to reduce scrums). Every second set was seven tackles.

“The good old if I can’t beat you, I’ll attack your integrity trick” is being used against the current administration.

11 former Wallaby captains sign letter calling for Rugby AU leadership resignations

So, teams will forfeit fixtures at the World Cup because they won’t find enough players who want to take part? And if a World Cup means absolutely nothing, the NRL, which is players representing cities or suburbs, must be even more pointless.

How will the Kangaroos and Kiwis look in 2025?

In any other industry, praise would be expected for getting things right.

The Wrap: Referee Angus Gardner blows the whistle on COVID-19

Cleary was a male model, which is why he got the nickname. He’d invariably belt the guy saying it.

No moral basis is different from a moral basis you disagree with.

Fast five: Talking points from the latest raid on rugby's 'Castle'

I know you said regularly, but Blackham did it at least once – https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/17678/scorecard/62437/australia-vs-england-1st-test-england-tour-of-australia-1894-95

Why Steve Smith should be the next Australian captain

Conferences are brought up ad nauseam, with the Road no exception. But there’s now the potential for the idea to be taken seriously, which actually makes it worth discussing .

The fundamental flaw in NRL conferences: Blatant unfairness

Let me put it another way. Some of the old rivalries have lost meaning; there’s no Fibros vs Silvertails feeling anymore. But Manly have a modern day rivalry with the Storm that is far more interesting. Similarly, seeing the Dragons play the Broncos is going to generate more interest than a clash with the Panthers.

The fundamental flaw in NRL conferences: Blatant unfairness

I totally agree. Also, Sydney is pretty spread out in terms of developing rivalries. Surely fans would rather see Manly take on Melbourne rather than Wests.

The fundamental flaw in NRL conferences: Blatant unfairness

Your first sentence required a question mark instead of a period, and that question mark needed to be placed within the parentheses. Glass houses, etc.

This is the future of sports broadcasting

So the non-Sydney clubs save money how exactly?

NRL finally forced into suspending season

Don’t forget Cumberland and University!

What would the NRL look like if we hit the reset button?

An American man who is 100% not worth finding out about. I’ll leave it at that.

AFL season suspended due to coronavirus

Standing down players for misbehaviour isn’t trying to clean up an image?
