It’s a feast of finals football this weekend – with plenty to interest far north Queensland sports fans. We’ll be watching the North Queensland Cowboys v Cronulla, and the Northern Pride v Easts Tigers in the Queensland Cup. And what about tonight’s South Sydney v Melbourne Storm match – should be a cracker, potentially one of the best NRL games of the season. The AFL has plenty to offer this weekend too – Sydney Swans v Carlton looks like the standout fixture. Match previews and predictions on Phil Staley’s Thoughts on Sports
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. Phil’s Thoughts on Sports are podcast too – search Phil Staley in your podcast app.
