A pause to remember one of the greatest talents in the history of soccer, Diego Armando Maradona, who has just died at 60 of a heart attack.

Good to see Paul Gallen receive yet another most valuable contributor award for Qld. Good old Gal must be getting up near Wally Lewis in terms of winning games for Qld ... what a goose ... his fifth tackle settlers were bad but his call this year, before the first kick-off of the series, that this team is the worst in origin history takes the cake.


J, I didn't get to see any of the game live but from what I've read and seen on the highlights it was more about passion and tension than skill. But a win is a win.

Australia and New Zealand are hosting the FIFA 2023 Women's World Cup. Here's how the tournament will work

QUOTE
It's official the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup is heading to Australia and New Zealand.

The dates FIFA has nominated for the tournament to take place are between July 10 to August 10, 2023.
The bid proposes 13 stadiums in 12 cities across Australia and New Zealand, telling FIFA it would prefer a minimum of 10 to be used five in each country.
The bid team is banking on welcoming 1.5 million fans through the gates across those venues for an average of 24,000 spectators per game, which would make it the most well-supported women's World Cup in history.
The 2023 Women's World Cup will feature 32 teams, up from the 24 that competed in France in 2019.

So how does this system work ? If you can't win a medal we'll cut your funding.

QUOTE
Charlesworth said he was “disappointed” when he heard the news that the Australian women’s hockey team, if they don’t perform in Tokyo, will have their funding cut by 60 per cent as there is no medal forecast for Paris 2024.


Making it harder for the sport is somehow supposed to get better results? Punish the non medal winners ?

I can understand some peripheral sports being cut, but teams like the Hocheyroos have actually performed pretty well on the international scene.

This approach of only rewarding winners, in a country with a small population like Australia has, seems bizarre, and certainly goes against the Olympic ideals.

Perhaps the administrative side of Olympic organisation needs the trimming, not the athletes' funding.

So now we have a New Zealander for a CEO of Australian Rugby, and we also have a New Zealander as the Wallabies coach.

Great to see our Rugby in good hands. weirdsmiley.gif

Ron Clarke was another great runner, but not a great racer. All fantastic achievements, but in different ways.

Cheers
