RUGBY league’s Sydney powerbase has been given the dream match-up it craved, with the Roosters winning through to a showdown with South Sydney.

    STEPHANIE Gilmore’s hatred of losing has put her on a collision course with compatriot Sally Fitzgibbons for surfing’s world crown.

    IT has been hyped as one of the biggest heavyweight showdowns of the year and Mark Hunt says he is ready to inflict pain on Roy Nelson in UFC Fight Night Japan.

    ALAN Jones has urged the Wallabies to persist with running rugby, hailing it far superior to the past when our young stars “driven to drink”.

    FOR the Newington Gunners, a team made up entirely of refugees, Ali Abbas is the perfect role model.
