This award has nothing to do with 'internationals', it is essentially NRL player of the year award. Why this is announced by the supposed international governing body is beyond me. The Golden Boot is the only award that seems to take internationals into consideration.

Not a fan of ISC at all. Generally find it quite cheap to have the shirt made entirely of one fabric, they could at least sew on the badges for example. Good to see bigger name brands like UA getting involved in the sport and making the shirts more widely available.

Basketball is huge in Europe, particularly Greece, Spain, Serbia, Croatia, Lithuania. Pretty popular in South America also. It is the only other team sport that has true global reach.


It's also popular in China, the Philippines and Turkey too. Even in the UK where it's not considered that popular, it's the second most played sport and most people over the globe will know what it is. Sports like Cricket and Hockey are skewed by India's population, but they're not as globally known or watched as others.

No excuses for France. Agar should have to go. I don't see the point of having a non-French speaker as a coach and then having to translate what he said to the players. Why not just get Houles in?

So you think basketball is the most widely watched sport after football.

Please produce some figures, if you can't please just say.


It's too difficult to break down what is the 'second most watched sport', but in terms of international spread and appeal, Basketball would have to be second.
