Rugby (Union) World Cup Starts Tonight: As usual, the All Blacks will be favourites, but this time around it's a bit more open. England, Australia, France, South Africa and Ireland could all be in with a shout. Usually with Rugby World Cups, the pools are fairly predictable, and action won't get interesting until the knockout stages at the Quarter Finals. However, this year the Pool of Death (TM) means that one of England, Australia or Wales will be going or staying home early.
Cheating in Sports: With computers and downloadable apps.
Australian Rules Tactics: For a long time, they didn't seem to actually exist. A new book delves into the history of coaching, and tries to explain what's happening to the average punter.
The Ashes. Explained.: England and Australia resume their 148 year old cricket rivalry.
Matthew Dellavedova and the Australian Way.: “What the fuck are you staring at?” That’s the attitude Australia takes into the world, in sport as in much else."
