Ashes agony Down Under

Summer success and the buoyant mood which accompanied the England cricket team Down Under was shattered by a calamitous first Test defeat in Brisbane, where England collapsed to 136 all out in the first innings and went on to lose the match by a massive 318 runs.

Making Haye

David Haye's much-anticipated heavyweight grudge match with Tyson Fury was postponed less than a week before the fight in September when Haye sustained a cut eye in training. Fury was not best pleased - and his mood didn't improve when the fight was axed for a second time - this time for good.

Seconds out

Shaun Johnson: Celebrates converting the winning try with the last kick of the game

It might have yielded one of the most dramatic moments of the sporting year but that is no consolation to England rugby league fans, who saw their nation's place in the World Cup final cruelly ripped away in the dying moments at Wembley when Shaun Johnson scored and converted a sensational try for New Zealand.

Tomic gun

Tennis' troubled history with over-eager parents sunk to a new low in May when Bernard Tomic's father was charged with assaulting his son's training partner after a practice session. Tomic senior was subsequently handed an indefinite suspension by the ATP - but is still working with his son.

Gone west

West Brom looked set for a famous win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in November until referee Andre Marriner awarded the hosts a dubious injury-time penalty when Ramires went under down under minimal contact from Steven Reid. Referees' chief Mike Riley later apologised - but it was too late to win the Baggies the points back. The draw began a run of just two points in six games which cost Baggies boss Steve Clarke his job.
