THE Australian cycling coach behind enemy lines with the Great Britain nations in Glasgow is tipping a brutal start to the “the Ashes on wheels”.

OOPS. They did it again. Thirty-two years after the biggest snub in Tasmanian history, the Apple Isle has been forgotten once more.

WHETHER it’s AFL or NRL or any professional sport, we’re all sick of overpaid idiots behaving badly. Our netball skipper has a simple way to stop it.

DUAL world triathlon champion Emma Moffatt says she has recovered from a rib injury, but her greater threat might lie within Australian ranks.

WATCH them in full flight and the Australian men’s hockey team needs a sports psychologist as much as Michael Jackson needed a dance coach.
