New South Wales has been ravaged by bushfires, which has affected the whole of Sydney. Last week the smoky sky and blazing sun was an eerie sight. Thinking of all those people and poor animals who have lost their homes.
I’ve spent the last week covering the Socceroos on their way to qualifying for next year’s FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
It’s been fantastic and brought back memories of 2010 in South Africa, my home country.
Obviously my working life revolves around sport, but so does my down-time.
It’s my birthday tomorrow. I’ll spend it watching the Wallabies take on the British Lions. Just the way I like it!
My most recent long-term commitment is to living a cruelty-free life. No products that test on animals (you won’t believe how many companies still do) and nothing containing unnecessary toxins. Every effort counts.
The perks of having the great Jake White in Australia - exclusive interviews.
It’s great speaking to a fellow South African working in Australian sport and Jake has always been more than happy to accommodate my interview requests.
Australian rugby needs a man of Jake’s calibre - he’s a phenomenal coach and isn’t afraid of speaking his mind.
