OFTEN-maligned Aussie NBA centre Andrew Bogut received some long overdue praise after a huge game for the Warriors in the Western Conference finals.

    RUSSIAN powerpuncher Alex Povetkin took just 91 seconds to destroy Mike Perez and earn a shot at the world heavyweight championship.

    CONTROVERSIAL Reds star James O’Connor didn’t just make the blooper of the season on Friday - he also had a dressing room blow-up with a teammate.

    KANE Williamson’s unbeaten 92 rounded off a fine day’s work for New Zealand in the first Test against England at Lord’s overnight.

    IF Australia is unlikely to host football’s World Cup in the foreseeable future, then maybe 2015 will be looked back on as the year that brought the next best thing
