Loss to Ireland the Wallabies’ best tour performance

Scott, once again you have given us the benefit of a searching and detailed analysis on what happens with the Wallabies on the field. Brilliant as usual. Thank you for this. It would be interesting to know if the Wallabies camp study your analysis. They should, especially the players. Your take on the Wallabies playing well is timely, too. Bob Dwyer used to argue, convincingly, that teams should concentrate on their processes and if these are well done and smart the results would look after themselves. I take it from you that the Wallabies are playing better than their results suggest, which is a helpful sign for 2015, and on the weekend against England, hopefully.

Tendulkar displays questionable shotmaking in his autobiography

Sachin Tendulkar was a great batsman. But Malcolm Knox in the SMH has essentially proven that he is not as reliable with the pen as he is with the bat. This is another reason why it is not a good thing for sports to name trophies or events after former but still living great players. Suni Gavaskar's role during the controversial incident which threatened to derail India's tour of Australia provides the further proof that keep the living legends out of trophy deification until they become dead legends.
