    Riley’s got plenty more of that in him. I had the pleasure of seeing him as a junior and have watched his career closely. Criminally underused at Birmingham till the manager swap and was impressive when he got a shot. Is only going to get better in this tournament. He will be crucial to Australia’s chances.

    Good on Japan for getting the show on the road. It has been challenging times around the wo rule with Covid and I think we need the Olympics in times like this.

    Struggling to accept skateboarding as an Olympic sport.
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    I think any individual sport where the Olympics aren't the pinnacle should be stripped from the Games. Tennis, golf, skateboarding, bmx, surfing etc.

    Yeah i get that point of view, but i think the Olympics needs to evolve and try and stay relevant with the changing sports too.

    Olyroos 1-0 loss to Spain. Will come down to the last group game against Egypt for us to go through. Need to win that one.

    Good wins for us in the basketball against Nigeria and hockey against India.

    Soccer players are such sooks sometimes. Over dramatic or what when they get a hit.
