I'm currently enjoying the wine and the wine and the wine of the McLaren Vale region of South Australia. My partner and I are house sitting here until the end of November and it's a little bit fantastic. We'll be headed to the Matildas game at Coopers Stadium on the 12th November and will be pre-gaming with the Matildas Active Support. Join us!
Never mind what I've been reading, what are the kids reading? There's plenty on offer for girls and boys into sport and if you're looking for something for the small humans in your life, here are some suggestions:
LIANA BURATTI - BEYOND 90 “I did that classic thing that women do – I doubted myself”. By The White Line (BTWL) has become a familiar name within women’s football. Started by Rachel Bach, her brand has become synonymous with capturing uniquely moving and privileged moments, where the bond between photographer and subject is undeniably evident.
MARY KONSTANTOPOULOS - LADIES WHO LEAGUE "Aussie women's cricket the best it's ever been". Alyssa Healy continues her run of good form. During the tour against Sri Lanka, Healy played her 100th T20 International and made her 175th appearance for her country. On that day, she became just the eighth woman to play more than 100 T20Is and only the second Aussie alongside her mate Ellyse Perry.
KATIE WHYATT - THE TELEGRAPH (UK) "We need to talk about periods, in all their bloody mess and glory". To watch England captain Steph Houghton discussing period poverty on national television, and the 31% of girls lost to physical activity for want of proper sanitary protection, was to hear a call to arms that we all would do well to heed.
