Hand me the fluoro gear - it’s time to Bash

2 days ago

If it’s the week before Christmas, it must be Big Bash League time. The fourth edition of all-singing, all-dancing Australian Twenty20 competition kicks off tonight in Adelaide. In front of what will likely be the first of many massive Adelaide Oval crowds, the Adelaide Strikers in blue will take-on the BBL’s very own ‘silvertails’ – […]

Aussies need to learn from Hughes and prepare for the future

5 days ago

With Michael Clarke admitting “there’s a chance I may never play again” in the aftermath of Australia’s thrilling Test win on Saturday evening, the Australian selectors will be forced – or should be forced – into some strategic long-term planning.

5 Dec 2014

Phillip Hughes’ moving farewell on Wednesday doesn’t close the book on the loss of this prodigious talent, but it should be the point of realisation that it’s time to get back on the park. The four-Test series against India has been heavily rescheduled, with only the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne unaffected. The next round […]

To improve the Wallabies, Cheika first needs to beat them

To improve the Wallabies, Cheika first needs to beat them

2 Dec 2014

So the Wallabies’ Spring Tour ended with another loss, consigning them to the worst end-of-season record since Eddie Jones was relieved of his services at the end of 2005. Michael Cheika is in no danger of suffering the same fate, but he certainly has some work ahead of him. England played their type of game […]
