From racing to football to lawn bowls, no sport has been left untouched. Great Australian Sports Rorts reveals that nefarious conduct has affected just about every sport in this country. And every mechanism known – be it physical, mechanical or chemical – has been employed. When a sporting contest is taking place, and there is either a reward for the winner or there is betting on the contest, it is almost guaranteed that one person will attempt to relieve another person of what is rightfully theirs. And if a degree of skulduggery is required to attain the right result or to assist in the transfer of funds from one person’s pocket to another, then so be it. Cheating: it’s as Australian as Sunday barbecues.Join John ‘Dr Turf’ Rothfield and John Adams on a rollicking ride through the sporting outrages that have rocked Australia.
