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.
This week:new Wallabies coach Ewan McKenzie on the line up to play New Zealand in August, the North Queensland Cowboys play Brisbane Broncos in Townsville tonight, has David Warner played himself back into the Ashes line-up, an umpire’s view of the DRS, and Jonathan Thurston on that early wake-up from ASADA on Wednesday.
