Dane was named best and fairest in the 2004 Bathurst mixed indoor cricket competition. With nothing in the game left to achieve, he immediately retired at his peak to a reclusive life ensconced in the velvet of organised contests. Catch the man here: @eld2_0

An NRL team in England: So crazy it just might work

I like the cut of Marwan Koukash’s jib. He’s a dangerous thinker with a cowboy approach to business, plus he’s got so much money that he doesn’t have to think about money. His rich, reckless fruitiness is perfect for the volatility of rugby league in Australia. If history has taught us anything, it’s that magnates […]

Dodgy DRS doings arrive right on time for World Cup

Sri Lanka were fleeced by modernity in Dunedin on Sunday when shonky circuitry caused the Decision Review System to crap out when needed most, thus returning the topic to conversation with perfect timing right before the game’s grandstand event. In the fourth over of the sixth Generic Trophy ODI, the hustling Dhammika Prasad trapped Martin […]

It was Day 2 of the fifth Test in the 2002-03 Ashes, a day when our Steve Waugh counterattacked adversity with […]

Despite being unable to bat, bowl or field, we’ve learnt that Tony Abbott was still able to get a guernsey for his school cricket side back in the day, thus proving that episodic selection brain farts exist in Australian cricket at all levels. Politics and malleable rules mean this cricketing nation is one of ever-shifting […]

Building a dinky-di Aussie sportsman to take on the Honey Badger

Welcome to the new year, but please hold off on your best wishes. Such enforced courtesies will not be required as 2015’s pearler status has been guaranteed with the confirmed homecoming of larri-king Nick Cummins. How sweet it will be to have a rarefied opal like The Badge back to light up town with a […]
