  • Zorba's Zone: Father time catches us all

    There is no sadder sight in sport than watching a former champion playing on a season too long.Every player, no matter his ability, reaches a use-by date at some stage.Some know it within themselves and call it quits at the right time.Others need a ...

  • Stewart a brave diabetes crusader

    Barry Stewart thought his youngest son was faking it when he came home from school one day complaining of being crook.Baz had every right to believe young Brett was up to something as his 13-year-old went from his death bed to doing cartwheels by th...

  • Zorba's Zone: Ban shoulder charges

    I played in the brutal 1973 grand final and saw things that should never have been allowed on a football field.But I don't think I've ever felt as ill as I did watching Dean Young lie motionless on the ANZ Stadium turf last Saturday night.I really f...

  • SBW chasing more dollars

    It looks like the Sydney Roosters' famous transit lounge has been given a new lick of paint and fresh new carpet as it prepares to welcome back Sonny Bill Williams for all of about five seconds.The strong mail is SBW is about to leave rugby for a ye...

  • Zorba's Zone: Joey for Immortals

    As someone who was there at the start of the Immortals concept, I love all the debate surrounding who should be the next inductee.Andrew Johns, Mal Meninga, Norm Provan and Ron Coote have all been thrown up as contenders and I wouldn't have a proble...

  • Creagh under pressure

    The Origin careers of at least three NSW players go on the line as the Blues prepare to stop Queensland sealing a seventh straight series win next Wednesday night.I reckon you can put a red pen through Trent Merrin, Ben Creagh and probably Todd Carn...

  • Zorba's Zone: Time's up Harrigan

    Billy Joel had a big hit a number of years ago with a song titled Say Goodbye to Hollywood.I couldn't think of a more fitting tune to play at Bill Harrigan's farewell bash if the ARLC gets serious and punts the out-of-his-depth referees' boss.I'll e...

  • Zorba's Zone: Hayne, Jennings the right call

    There's an old saying that if you play with dogs, you catch fleas.And Jarryd Hayne and Michael Jennings are surrounded by mutts at their respective clubs, Parramatta and Penrith.The Eels are awful beyond belief. They are not only one of the worst Pa...

  • Zorba's Zone: My NSW Origin team

    For all of those losing sleep over the make-up of the NSW side, let little old Zorba put you out of your misery and give you the Blues squad right here and now.Barring injury in this weekend's round of football, this is pretty much how I expect ...

  • Zorba's Zone: Farah not up to Origin standard

    When Blocker Roach entered the media 20 years ago, my simple advice to him was never be afraid to express an opinion, no matter how much trouble it might get you in or how unpopular you may become.After all, it never caused me any grief did it?I&#39...

  • Grudge match a fizzer?

    Be careful about getting caught up in all the hype and buzz surrounding the so-called grudge match of the season between Des Hasler's Canterbury and his old mob Manly.Don't get me wrong, I am as excited about this match as any other league f...

  • Zorba's Zone: Kearney's Sandow blunder

    Parramatta coach Stephen Kearney had two choices this week when it came to Chris Sandow - and he's made the wrong call.The little fella requested a few days' R&R back with family and friends in Cherbourg to escape the big smoke, clear his mi...

  • Peter Peters: Sandow's not fairdinkum

    Regular listeners on Sportal's NRL Unleashed podcast will know I have been banging on for ages about Chris Sandow's ballooning weight and associated form problems.I see Parramatta club legend Peter Sterling shares the same view, estimating t...

  • Zorba's Zone: Storm will falter

    I was feeling pretty happy with myself having woken up last Saturday morning with two from two in my tips.Twenty-four hours later I felt lower than a limbo dancer after all three of my Saturday night tips bit the dust and by the end of the round I h...

  • Peter Peters: Hindy must walk away

    As usual it looks like it's going to be up to me to cut through all the crap and niceties and tell it like it is, so here we go.If Parramatta want to save their fast disappearing season then they need to pension off skipper Nathan Hindmarsh - ef...

  • Zorba's Zone: T-Rex's rough deal

    I was the one who gave T-Rex his nickname but at the time Tony Williams was more puppy dog than a ferocious, man-eating dinosaur.Des Hasler copped a lot of flak for signing the big unit, who could make the QE II look like a speedboat when he turned ...

  • Should Stewart make way?

    Imagine you had three good sorts (there's that term phrase again!) chasing you and you had to ditch two to keep one.That's the dilemma facing the Manly Sea Eagles as they fight to hold on to some of the hottest property in the NRL.Brett Stew...

  • NRL scheduling madness

    What a fantastic start to the premiership, arguably the best in the game's history.It had everything: two golden point games, another decided in the last 19 seconds and the rest (barring Cowboys-Gold Coast) producing tight contests.All involved ...

  • Peter Peters' top eight

    People who know me will tell you I rarely sit on the fence.But when it comes to ranking my top eight in order, I'm going to wear a few splinters.Just trying to work out who will make it let alone in what order is hard enough and can leave you lo...
