2015 Sporting Bragging Rights

Guest Post:

A new sporting year, with some great competitions to look forward to, including two big world cups!  It could be a great year for NZ sport, or an opportunity for a NZ team to claim the age-old chokers tag which the All Blacks so famously claimed the last time the World Cup was in the Northern Hemisphere (the only time we haven’t finished in the top four).

Can you pick the winners of some of the biggest sporting events of 2015?  Do you pick with your heart or your head?  At the end of 2015 will you have the bragging rights? Use the comments to make and/or explain your choices for some or all of these big events.  Even if you know nothing about sport, have a guess, you might just beat us all!

Super Bowl XLIX  –  February 2

The teams still in the hunt:




Cricket World Cup:   February 14 – March 29

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
