About

AJ watches far too much sport. When he's not watching it, he's reading about it. When he's not reading about it, he's writing about it and when he's not writing about it, he's talking about it on the podcast ‘A Sporting Discussion’. Rugby league has AJ's heart, but he loves to give space to the sports that the mainstream forgets - he’ll never rest until Australian baseball gets the coverage it deserves! He’s always game for a debate in the comments section or on twitter @AJMithen - but you’d best come prepared!

The horrified public reaction to ‘our’ Aussie cricketers ball-tampering efforts in South Africa gave me some cause to pause this week.

Who killed the captain's challenge?

21 Mar 2018
