I think it’s safe to say that many, if not the majority of Australians, believe the Australian Olympic campaign was a failure, purely based on a lack of gold medals.
On August 18, either Berrick Barnes or Quade Cooper will steer the Wallabies around ANZ Stadium against the All Blacks in the opening match of The Rugby Championship.
”He bowls to the left, he bowls to the right, that Mitchell Johnson, his bowling is …”. This chant has not only echoed in Johnson’s ears, but every English cricket ground since last the Ashes series.
Australians like to paint a stereotypical picture of their sporting heroes; a true blue, Aussie battler who they can relate with.
A successful international team needs a balanced batting order. Australia is missing one, and they will not return to the number one ranking until this is rectified.
