From the experts

The low down from those in the know
Adam Voges, batting ugly but sitting pretty over Bradman

He ended the first day shouldering arms to a Doug Bracewell ball that crashed into his stumps, but was reprieved for a front-foot no-ball that didn’t exist. He started the second day leg before wicket to Southee, but for a faint edge before ball hit pad.

Voges’ achievements deserve more respect

“Yeah, but he’s made most of those runs against the West Indies.” So many times I’ve seen a sour response along these lines when Adam Voges’ extraordinary Test record is brought up, even after his average passed 100 yesterday.

Adam Voges’ Test average is in Sir Donald Bradman’s rarefied air

Nobody, including the modest Western Australian, would speak of Adam Voges and The Don in the same breath.

18 Have your say

Greg Inglis has taken a thinly veiled swipe at Todd Greenberg, wondering why the NRL head of football had questioned the All Stars game’s future ahead of the showcase event.

Is Williamson a ‘flat-track bully’ too?

A superb bowling display has placed Australia in a wonderful position from which to win this first Test against New Zealand. Yet the Kiwis are not as down and out as the scoreboard suggests, with a fragile Australian tail within sight.

World class sportsmen Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja weren’t having a good day at the office yesterday, but still managed to do well.

Australia can benefit from the rise of Chinese football

In 2008, I was at Shanghai Shenhua’s clubhouse watching an Under 13 Chinese team defeat an Under-11 Japanese team due to being able to kick the ball further and harder.

Give Pocock a year off and develop Hooper, McMahon and Butler

The short answer to the question about David Pocock and his sabbatical intentions is this: let him go and study at Oxford or Cambridge for a year and develop Michael Hooper, Sean McMahon and Jarrad Butler as his successors in the Wallabies back row.

Brendon McCullum disappoints me, but not for the usual reasons

I’m sorry, but when it comes to attaining a satisfactory level of Trans-Tasman tension, we’re going to need more than the lame brouhaha of Mitch Marsh’s drop-punt dismissal if we’re to generate requisite friskiness.

23 Have your say

Red and Black Bloc’s response to FFA flare up is embarrassing

In football, the saying that no player or manager is bigger than the club is often thrown about. It is a legitimate argument, however it should also be attributed to the fans.

No Danger, no matter for Adelaide

There’s a seminal line in the movie Moneyball: “We need 38 home runs, 120 RBIs and 47 doubles to replace.” Abuse of the English language aside, the brass at the Adelaide Crows likely reprised this phrase in October last year, except they had 21 goals, 165 clearances and 350 contested possessions to replace.

Hazlewood the key for Australia against Kiwis

There’s no Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Johnson or James Pattinson. As Australia start their two-Test series against New Zealand today, it is relative rookie Josh Hazlewood who shapes as the tourists’ most important bowler.
