The Melbourne Storm Dilemma

Earlier this year, the National Rugby League (NRL) team that I have passionately followed since their inception in 1998 was revealed to have been cheating the league’s salary cap. Over the last 5 seasons they’ve paid the players millions of dollars over the cap, keeping two sets of books.

Sickening Head Clash

I’ve been critical of Selwood in the past, and probably thought we should de-list him at the end of last year. Under Voss he has grown though, as have other fringe players.

If the Storm do happen to get over the line I […]

Brad and I have had our first two training sessions with Hampton Central Cricket Club and have decided to join them for the season. They field six sides in differing grades, it will be interesting to see where we fit into the picture. There is only one […]
