People caught with small amounts of illicit drugs would be able to avoid court for their first two offences under landmark drug reforms which Premier Dominic Perrottet says strike “the right balance” between enforcement and rehabilitation.

And in sport, “to beat Penrith, you have to bash them.” That's the old-school advice from former Rabbitohs enforcer Mark ‘Spudd' Carroll as South Sydney prepare for mission impossible: stopping Nathan Cleary and raging premiership favourites Penrith.

And in sport, South Sydney – the Pride of the League – are stranded embarrassingly without a home ground for 2023 because the NSW Government refuses to make what the club claims is a “simple” decision.
