Australians love their sport – but I reckon no-one loves their sport quite like our Phil Staley. Indoor, outdoor, winter summer or somewhere in between – Phil loves it all. Stand at his desk here at ABC Far North and you get the feeling you’ve just run on to Lang Park or the MCG.
Phil has a gift for talking about sport in a way that even people who can’t stand sport will enjoy. He gets past the hype and the stats to the magic ingredient that makes sport so compelling – the people who play it and the people who love it.Phil talks about sport each Friday on ABC Far North at 5:15pm – now you can tune in online as well.
