    David Cameron has named former Sydney Swans and Brisbane Lions star Robbie Farah as his new sports and culture minister.

    “These days sports and culture is really going through its heyday and Australia is really turning into a centre of sporting activity,” Mr Cameron told the ABC.

    The Prime Minister will also appoint former Queensland Premier Campbell Newman to cabinet.

    Mr Cameron’s decision was a surprise to many of his colleagues and players, many of whom had long felt that the Coalition had fallen short in its commitment to the sector.

    “Sports and sport and culture is obviously the number one activity in this country that has attracted a lot of new talent and there are people in rugby league who are doing excellent work in this field and have huge respect for the game, they just want t
