With the dark shadow of the ANZAC Round looming over to swallow us whole, here’s a few Tuesday Tithbits.
And a photo of Eddie Betts kicking the best of his 6 goals from the weekend.
Super Netball Begins This Weekend
Here’s something sister or mum probably had no clue was happening- The Super Netball season returns this weekend, and I won’t be watching it until they bring back the Perth Orioles.
Anyway, these are the Round 1 Fixtures:
Wests Tigers Making History
Aside from making history as being the first game at Western Sydney Stadium, Parramatta’s 51-6 thumping of Wests Tigers also achieved history as a ‘Scorigami’- A scoreline that has never occurred in the history of a sport.
Funnily enough, the first time a team scored 51 points in the NSWRL was in 1919. The team? Western Suburbs.
Supercars Shifting the Goal Posts to get Holden a win
Surely the best way to level the playing field would be to throw a bone to Nissan, instead of continuing to give them the shaft up the tail pipe that they’ve copped for 6 years.
Yeah, because when Triple Eight were smacking everyone sideways for a decade there was no need to change the rules to stop them.
Robbie Fowler to the Brisbane Roar
Perth Glory legend and former Liverpool player Robbie Fowler has been appointed as the new manager of the Brisbane Roar.
Usually it’s big players that can get cracks on seats, but a name as big as Fowler’s should help.
Hopefully if the Roar actually manage to score a goal in 2019-20, Robbie can whip out that classic ‘cocaine’ celebration from the Merseyside Derby in ’99, crikey, I still can’t believe the mad man did it.
Duck Off Ashton Turner
While Dave Warner is breaking records in the IPL, Ashton Turner is also breaking records in the IPL.
The wrong kind of records.
Not even Glenn McGrath could achieve that consistency with the bat.
Jack Petrol-Jelly Is The Rising Star
As the only West Coast player who showed up to play Port Adelaide, Jack Petrol-Jelly is the Round 5 Rising Star.
Now with a name that sounds like Petrol-Jelly, Jack could have one of two nicknames, as I discussed with the Rocket when he read the Round 5 Review.
Vasoline- Because he’s a slippery little sucker.
Napalm- Extremely explosive and causes considerable damage.
And that’s all I have time for.
