What’s Hot

Sussex Sharks Bite

Sussex Sharks won their first T20 Blast game at home over Glamorgan in Hove in some style with a hat trick from Tymal Mills in the final over. A few weeks ago Jefra Archer did the same at Lords against Middlesex. We are now in the business end of the T20 and, with quarter final places assured to [...]

The sporting weekend

When it comes to golf coverage in the media two players  dominate: Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods. Rory has not won a Major for 4 years and I don’t think will add to his total of 4. He has blown up on the fourth round several times this year. Nor do I think Tiger will add to his 14 but he is [...]

The Tanner Report: Fulham 0 Crystal Palace 2

Welcome to the Premier where if you are dominating a game it’s not enough, you need to be clinical in your finishing. Palace were, Fulham weren’t. Much was made of our new back four and keeper, none of whom started at Wembley in May, but since the words “reality check” will be used, the [...]

Rain, rain go away

I finally watched 45 minutes of play at Lords before the heavens opened and I hot-footed back to Hove for the crucial T20 blast game against Kent. I say hot-footed but once again there was a trespasser on the line at East Croydon so the Gatwick non-Express crawled pitiably and then a decision was [...]

Blighted by the weather

I travelled up to London to watch the Test with Dougie Heath only to spend much of the day in the hotel room following sport. I am not the only Rust staffer to fall foul of Southern Fail. All trains from the station to London were delayed or cancelled because of an earlier trespass incident. What [...]

Jack Russell

Yesterday I went with Alice Mansfield to meet Jack Russell whose work was being exhibited at a well-known gallery in St James London. I already knew quite a bit about Jack as England wicketkeeper but wanted an art expert’s view on the quality of his artistic output. Jack was the same [...]

Sussex Sharks lose again

After our excellent victory at Lords in the week over Middlesex we were flying in anticipation of high-flying Somerset, top run scorers in the south division. Alas it was not to be. We posted a score of 169, Laurie Evans scoring 96 of them but it was never going to be enough with Somerset winning [...]

Richard Harris

Everyone has their favourite actors and the ones they do not rate. My father liked two actors of which the present generation of filmgoers may not have heard: Van Heflin and Paul Muni. His father would go to the cinema twice a week – Wednesday and Saturday – for the Pathe news. It’s [...]

A bad day at the coast.

When I retired from my life in commerce some 7 years ago and moved down to the coast some 4 years ago, I had hoped that “a bad  day in the office’, when through no fault of one’s own matters spiral out of control in a horrible downward vortex, was a thing of the past. Not so and yesterday [...]

Gay Pride/single status /Battle of Britain

Yesterday was a popular event in the Brighton calendar – “Gay Pride” – when some 2% of the total annual visitors descend on Brighton for the Parade that goes from Hove Lawns to Preston Park. The revellers normally finish up in Kemp Town and more than a few in the bushes of Duke’s [...]
