25 June 2018 1:30 PM Secret to Blues' success hidden in the fine print

Goal kicking. This was the difference in the 18-14 scoreline. Each side scored three tries but NSW’s Maloney kicked three goals to Valentine Holmes’s one. Holmes is only a part-time kicker. When the Maroons’ Cameron Smith and Johnathan Thurston retired, they not only lost “once in a generation” players but two radar accurate goal kickers. Walters acknowledged 13

As the blues took home the match on Friday, winning 16-10, the game saw more than one million viewers tune in across Australia to watch the game. While the game was the first time the women's competition had been given the title of an "origin" match, it was the third consecutive victory for NSW in inter-state encounters. Channel 9 had more than 839,000 people 14

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 17

5 June 2018 2:10 PM Tonight I'm looking forward to Sydney's other red v blue grudge match

Tonight’s the night. I know, like me, many of you will have been looking forward to this evening for a while now. Anticipating the drama, getting dressed for the occasion, maybe raising a glass or two. Yes it’s the showdown between two great rivalries again: blue versus red. Not the maroons. I’m not talking about that annual grudge match between NSW and Queensland 10

5 June 2018 7:32 AM Proud Queenslander Jeff Horn will 'never give up'

Horn doesn't think that will matter one bit. His fearless attitude saw him topple Manny Pacquiao and he will tap into that same mentality against the imposing Crawford. "There’s something about Queenslanders, there’s just that never give up attitude and I draw off that every day," Horn said. "I’m a bit the same as the Origin boys, I don’t spend the time worrying 13

23 April 2018 10:48 AM Origin? Me? Honest Jack Bird needs to find himself before a NSW jumper

"Last week I had a pretty ordinary game (against Melbourne). I was pretty down my performance," Bird said before Thursday's clash with South Sydney. "I wasn't happy with my game. I think I let myself down and let the team down. I just need to find my mojo back and start enjoying footy again. Once I start doing that I will start playing better footy 47

19 April 2018 7:58 AM The day Big Daz died... then wanted to get straight back on the mike

Then Eastlake suffered another heart attack. He eventually recovered and kept calling right up until his retirement in 2005. The big man with the bigger voice finally shuffled off this mortal coil on Tuesday morning. He died at a nursing home on the Central Coast after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease and emphysema. He was 75. Within hours of the news breaking 36

14 February 2018 9:00 AM Peter FitzSimons' predictions for the sporting year of 2018

Canterbury Bulldogs will rise. Without being unkind, I have no clue how the board led by Ray Dib got as close as they did to holding on to power in the elections last weekend. In the course of Dib's reign, the Dogs lost damn nigh everything, starting with their matches, and up to and including their two most revered and passionate players, Josh Reynolds 32

Origin Energy has slashed the value of a major coal seam gas project in Queensland by more than $500 million as it drastically recasts its expectations for production. Origin told the ASX on Thursday morning that it would book a $355 million after-tax impairment on its Ironbark gas field and a further after-tax $173 million writedown on the Lattice business 66

6 February 2018 10:10 PM NRL 2018: Dave Taylor set to miss Brisbane Broncos reunion

Dave Taylor looks set to be denied a reunion with former NRL club Brisbane, missing a chance to line up against the Broncos' "Andrew Fifita clone" Payne Haas.
