Re: NRL Grand Final. Penrith v Melbourne Match Thread

Not much of a Storm fan, but Ivan Cleary losing was my preferred outcome. :thumbup: Coupled with Moses and Matterson missing out on Origin (and Matterson seemingly ending up further away from it than he was when he chucked his toys and sooked his way out of his contract at the Tigers), it wasn't su...

Re: Gregor Paul: "The Wallabies don't do genuine hard men"

It only took a week. And what a quiet week it was. The NZ media wrote articles in hushed tones and questioned the tactics of the team. The army of barely literate kiwi scaffolders and fork lift drivers who trawl rugby social media sites were subdued. It was almost too good to be true. But now we're...

Re: Dean Jones RIP

Deano redefined how a one day batsmen could play. Flamboyant as hell, and lightning with his running between the wickets. Also one hell of a Test player. He played a significant role in Australia’s rejuvenation as a cricket power.
His book “ My Call” is a great read.
RIP Deano. :(
