Every sport you can watch this Boxing Day
Grab the leftovers, some Berocca or another beverage and catch some sport this Boxing Day.
Boxing Day isn't just about the sales. It's also a huge day on the calendar for sports fans.
As we know with any sporting event, it's always better when you've got some food involved. And given that Boxing Day follows Christmas, there'll be no other reason to leave the couch than to get some leftover ham or prawns.
There's also usually a few that may have had a little too much Christmas punch and will have to spend the following day resting, which makes a day filled with sports on the couch even more perfect.
Beginning in the early hours of the morning is the NBA Christmas games. With five games on the slate and some juicy matchups, there will be no shortage of action. The biggest game of the day is going to be the battle of LA when the Lakers vs Clippers at 12pm (AEDT).
Boxing Day test
On Australian turf is the traditional Boxing Day test held at the MCG. Last year, Australia lost its first Boxing Day test since 2010. So expect a huge performance against New Zealand as they look to steer the ship back in the right direction.
Sydney to Hobart
Then there's the iconic Sydney to Hobart yacht race, which begins just after lunch on Channel 7, making it the perfect afternoon entertainment.
The Boxing Day test will have just called stumps for the day, but now the South Africa vs England series is about to begin. If you can't handle any more red-ball cricket or you need a bit more spark, you can choose the BBL instead. The Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers are playing in what should be an exciting affair.
