Ashes lost - and Ponting head on the block?
Rugby lost - Bledisloe Cup Tucked up in NZ for another year.
Basketball Lost - Tall Blacks men's basketballers beat Australia 100-78 to claim Oceania Championship and higher world championship seeding
Bad week for the Aussies in sport but as a kindred Anzac they'll be back strong. Ponts is one of the finest batsmen and is a fine tactical capt... bit loud gibbed though.
Robbie Deans has the Wallabys going better at every outing and they don't drop the ball.. they were a Mortlock away from winning.
Aus Basketball is fine too... quite surprised at the result ...normally thrash us. It is just the sixth time the Tall Blacks have ever beaten Australia
If you're looking for a recent Aussie success: Steve Hooker was awesome in the world athletics championships on Saturday (pole vault). Carrying an injury, he waited as long as possible before entering, knowing he didn't have many jumps in him. So he comes in 35cm higher than everyone else. One clearance - one gold medal.
