18 July 2018 1:09 AM Dockers make pitch to GWS star as big man stocks dwindle

Sandilands, 35, had not been expected to be available to return after a three-week absence but is tipped to make a late bid for selection if Darcy fails any fitness tests this week. With West Coast restricted free agent Jeremy McGovern still firmly in Dockers recruiting sights, it has emerged that Lobb has been targeted as a saviour to Fremantle's need for a forward 7

10 July 2018 1:32 AM Alison Mitchell signs on with Channel Seven

7 July 2018 8:03 AM France take full control in beating Uruguay

Without Edinson Cavani (calf injury), Uruguay lacked the one-two punch that has struck fear into opponents. Luis Suarez was largely on his own and wasn’t a factor. France went ahead in the 41st minute when Griezmann served a free kick from 30 yards away. Varane made a crossing run and met the ball in the heart of the penalty area, flicking a header to the far corner 12

28 June 2018 7:01 AM Swifts star O'Brien out for a year after rupturing Achilles tendon

Swifts midcourter Claire O'Brien will be out for up to 12 months after rupturing her right Achilles tendon at training in a massive blow to the club's finals aspirations. In a double blow for the Swifts, sharpshooter Sophie Garbin has been ruled out of Saturday's crunch clash with the Melbourne Vixens due to a minor foot complaint. The club is expected 13

21 June 2018 11:05 PM Australia leave Denmark on the ropes after frustrating draw

Australia's strong finish made up for a meek opening that put them on the back foot after just seven minutes. A weak clearance was intercepted by Denmark's defensive midfielder Lasse Schone, who put Australia back under immediate pressure with a quick through ball to Nicolai Jorgensen. The towering centre forward intelligently held up two challengers 12

21 June 2018 2:20 PM Australian World Cup dreams remain alive after draw with Denmark

Australia lost the ball in midfield and it was played quickly forward where the 184 centimetre striker Nicolai Jorgensen beat his markers to flick on to Eriksen. The Tottenham playmaker was left in far too much space by the Australian defence and he hit the ball sweetly past Mat Ryan to rock Australia back on its heels. The Danes enjoyed their best period 9

18 June 2018 12:06 PM Jedinak leads from the front with nerves of steel

He doesn't say a lot, he just gets on with it. Aggressive, hard, committed and determined, his first intervention in the game against France was a thumping header in the second minute when he outmuscled Paul Pogba, letting the Frenchman know in no uncertain terms that if he wanted to invade Jedinak's territory he was going to be in for a battle. More than anything 12

17 June 2018 2:42 AM The rights and wrongs of VAR decision are now irrelevant for the Socceroos

All the anger, debate and discussion about the intervention of the VAR and the awarding of the penalty to Antoine Griezmann in the 60th minute is now academic. The rights and wrongs of the decision - and several Australian players didn't agree with it and many believe it only shows how the use of VAR is ruining the game - no longer matter. What does matter 3

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 12

8 June 2018 8:07 AM Fans fume as firm sells tickets for Socceroos' games on public site

Global Public Events co-founder Lui Spedaliere defended the move, saying that both the ticket price and bag restrictions were due to the high cost of security for the nights - saying that without it, the event would become a "logistical nightmare".
