    The world cup & the wallabies; a post-mortem

    Has it been long enough for the depression to recede to a point where we can actually have a look at the world cup and what Australia can take from it, without wincing with pain and changing the subject? The stage we went out of the cup, who it was against and...

    Bored journos, or a plot afoot?

    If you want to read a piece of baseless muck-raking journalism at its best (or should that be worst?) have a look at this piece from Peter Jenkins in Sydney’s Daily Telegraph: Sacking me ‘crazy': Connolly DEFIANT Test coach John Connolly last night warned that any push to sack him before the...
