Want more sports action?
The year starts with cricket, and once the test commentary has faded we move on to the tennis, followed by the AFL, NRL, and Union, with some basketball, soccer and netball thrown in for good measure. And now that Australians have also developed a taste for international leagues and tournaments, we also try to follow the NFL, the NHL, the NBA and the English Premier League. What we're trying to say is that there's a whole lot of excellent sport to be watched, and if you don't have cable, or like the atmosphere that only fans en masse creates, this is where to watch it in Sydney.
