20 June 2018 2:04 AM Golf loses a legend in Peter Thomson, aged 88

Asked about this once, Thomson said that neither he nor Norman owned the sobriquet; that it belonged to Karrie Webb, winner of seven major titles on the women’s tour.

17 June 2018 8:15 AM Ainslie pay a stirring tribute to the late Scott Gibson

In years gone by Gibson would have been one of those former players cheering from the hill, which made this victory extra special for the resurgent Tricolours.

16 June 2018 10:37 AM Canberra FC down Gungahlin United to book spot in FFA Cup round of 32

Gungahlin were on the board first and although Canberra quickly equalised, they could have been reduced to 10 men on 43 minutes. United winger Thomas Muller burst down the right flank and was about to play Antoni Timotheou in on goal when he was brought down from behind by Marko Vrkic.

Daniel Arzani has only been with the Socceroos for a short time, but he's already made a huge impression - not just with fans but his team-mates.

11 June 2018 1:45 PM Greenberg's diplomacy disguises battle for eyeballs with AFL

After all, the two codes were on a war footing when the NRL scheduled the 2018 Origin series. The NRL couldn’t trust the AFL not to schedule blockbuster matches in Melbourne over the June 22-24 weekend, leading to the Sunday night Origin match. Instead, the second match will be played at Homebush and the NRL has made it a standalone fixture, with no club games 7

8 June 2018 1:09 PM List of world's richest athletes is the same old story for women

Other female athletes to make the top 100 have generally been tennis players – in fact, last year eight of the top 10 female earners were tennis players. All grand slams offer equal prize money for the men's and women's draw.
