From A-League coach of the year to unemployed – all within six months. No matter which way you look at it, Mike Mulvey’s departure from Brisbane Roar is a cruel and unfitting end to his tenure as head coach.
Cricket is unique. No other sport has three formats – one that lasts multiple days using a red ball, and two games that are played over 50 and 20 overs respectively using a white ball.
Australia and South Africa headed to the SCG for the final game of the series. Despite the terrible film ‘Superman 4′ scheduled to follow the cricket on Nine, neither team could be convinced to switch to a 70 over a side match.
If there is such a oxymoronic event as a good defeat, then the Wallabies 26-23 loss at Aviva Stadium against a fired-up Ireland side playing Jakeball about as well as it can be played was such an occasion.

A 12-man Australian Test squad, including injured captain Michael Clarke, has been named for the first Test match against India starting in Brisbane on December 4.
India captain Virat Kohli says his side will emulate Australia’s aggression, suggesting the mental battle could help decide the upcoming four-Test series.
Chief selector Rod Marsh is set to shed more light on Michael Clarke’s chances of playing the opening Test against India.
Various media reports indicate that Brisbane Roar coach Mike Mulvey has been fired from his position, following a series of poor results and player disharmony at the club.
Move on from Brad Haddin and Peter Siddle, and don’t field an all-pace line-up. That would be my advice to the Australian selectors, who tomorrow name the squad for the first Test against India.
Citizens of this fine land, I have called this Roar summit to address the evil infiltration of plastic chairs in to our once-daunting coliseums.

With the national selection panel rumoured to be on the cusp of announcing a Hilditch-esque super squad of 43 players for the first two Tests against India, Rod Marsh and company face some familiar questions.
For some, flying down a slope at 80km per hour with sticks strapped to your feet is enough excitement for one day. For others, it simply isn’t.
Mega-fights are often years in the making. Fans will clamour with a gradually rising intensity and the media will lobby for a certain match-up to be made until the two fighters are standing across from each other, ready to do battle.
