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: the International Cricket Council stands by its much criticised DRS umpiring review system as the fourth Ashes test gets underway at Durham, the North Queensland Cowboys play Penrith after their upset win over South Sydney last week, and the Bunnies need to win what should be a top match against the Melbourne Storm.
