Asian Cup: Victory a fitting jewel in Postecoglou’s crown

It’s not at all what we expected, but a semi-final clash with the United Arab Emirates is not something to cheer about. The desire to avoid Japan has been bandied about way too much for a country tipped second favourite, and now there is no room for complacency.

SPIRO: Are the Reds setting up James Slipper for Wallabies captaincy?

A week or so ago Queensland Rugby Union put out a media statement headed: James Slipper Named St. George Queensland Reds Captain.

If Clarke is fit, drop Bailey for the Cricket World Cup

Glenn Maxwell has been buffeted by criticism as a result of his poor batting in ODIs the past nine months. Yet stand-in skipper George Bailey is arguably the bigger liability at the moment.
