BRISBANE LION SIMON BLACK RETIRES & THE ASHES JUST FIVE WEEKS AWAY – PHIL STALEY’S THOUGHTS ON SPORTS

18 Oct

BLACK SimonBrisbane Lions AFL legend Simon Black has announced his retirement after 322 games and 16 seasons with the club. He’s the second-last playing link to the side that won premierships in the early noughties. Simon has indicated he will look for a coaching role somewhere in Australian Rules.

We hear from Simon Black this week on Phil Staley’s Thoughts On Sports, and we look at the search for a new coach for the Aussie Socceroos, the rugby league blitz on Cape York and Torres Strait, and the countdown to the Ashes test cricket is just five weeks away and the trash talk has started.

_MG_7611Australians 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.
