Wild Oates takes the Sydney Hobart.

Test pitch a disgrace … again. Indians stand firm and maintain the Cup. Oman slammed by Aussie soccer.

Good point Arch … well - that's the way it goes. NYE Edition took out 52 and it must have been similar in 2017 … :) So we only had 50. Maybe 2019 will have more … :)
OK.

Clever clever so I’m assuming these are a regular feature!

Where’d you get Jacks Five from out of curiosity?

You should get a a journalism job mate if you’re coming up with these clever headlines and play on words!

I must say I’m impressed....

Sorry @rabbits21 missed this.

I started this many many years ago been across 7 'net sites now - hence the #7 - maybe 10-15 years or so ? I started a rough one way back on the old ABC site. You may still find it if you google "Jack's Five, servo fidem, sport". All good alliteration and fun. Nothing nasty.

Some of the sites only lasted a short time. I've been on a few - some run by nice people - but folded - others had so many trolls on them. We don't have a lot of members here but I find I enjoy it.

Just events I see as the top sports events of the week. So you could go back over the year and remember what happened in that week.

Just a fun thing I do. I've actually seen similar things start up in papers since I started. Although I'm not saying its an original idea - ie a top 5 etc.

Feel free to disagree or add your ideas.

Do you remember a Rugby League website called OzLeague where you were able to post??? It is gone now but existed for a few years around 2001.
