Great Australian sporting stories


Veteran Australian sports journalists Ian Heads and Norman Tasker have seen it all.

In these 65 original stories, we hear of the explosive introduction of World Series Cricket in 1977, which turned a genteel endeavour into a high-octane contest, and a clash of the titans as Packer and Murdoch squared off over the Super League war. We see Rugby Union become a battleground for race and the Olympics an arena for sublime acts of courage and achievement. We get an insider’s perspective on every kind of sporting endeavour – from boxing to tennis, cricket to AFL, athletics to rugby league – and not just the action on the field, but the change room gossip and clubhouse politics as well.
