  • God Save the Queen

    The phrase “once in a lifetime” is one of those terms that gets thrown around so often that it has lost a lot of its significance, like “hero” or “apocalypse”, applied to events by lazy journalists or over-excited commentators as a shortcut to save coming up with something original.

  • The Fairer Sex

    Over the past few years, one of the more polarising issues that has engulfed the sporting world is how to treat transgender and intersex athletes in a way that stays true to the foundational values of fairness and inclusiveness, even when they seem mutually exclusive.

  • Thanks, Ump.

    There always seems to be some topic causing ructions amongst fans and on the sports commentary talking head circuit. Everyone seems to have something to say about it, their own two cents to chuck in, so why shouldn’t I have my say?

  • Bowled, Shane.

    I awoke on Saturday at 5 in the morning to a pitch-black house with no power. The rain drumming on the roof almost loud enough to drown out the thunder that split the sky.
