Just by the way , I thought ASY was superb last week , best on ground.

Coach’s Corner Issue 8: Why are the Reds such good finishers?

Matt Toomua , cause he creates so many try’s .

Matt Toomua a priority signing for Rebels

It will be interesting Paulo , I’m not sure how Aus is going till we meet the Kiwis. That said , the Reds / Brums game was as good as it gets.

The Reds can beat the Crusaders

Tommy was a Blue Orchard , nuff said

Tommy Raudonikis was a legend and larrikin... and a thug

I’m apathetic as far as Smith is concerned . He shouldn’t be captain cause he’s not very good at it.

Steve Smith should never be allowed to captain Australia again

Sucked me in for a while , till I read some of the comments 01/04 couldn’t figure that one out for a while

BREAKING: Waratahs sack interim head coaches for "failing to meet on-field expectations"

the point is that at 17 you are judged to be old enough to be a serviceman but not old enough to play footy. seems strange to me.

Joseph Suallii should not be playing in the NRL until he turns 18

I joined the services at 17 years and 3 days old.

Joseph Suallii should not be playing in the NRL until he turns 18

ah well , I saw the best of it.

The Wrap: Reds twist the knife for epic win over ailing Brumbies

No and they will hardly win an argument with Moses.

Can Brad Arthur’s Eels win the premiership?

Yeh Ready doesn’t seem to be a brain surgeon

Alaalatoa cops three-week ban for high hit

Very good

Baggy green opening pairs: The best, and why

I can’t recall if Colin Cowdrey was good , bad or indifferent but his shapely body suggests bad.

The ultimate fielding XI

Yep , don’t have a problem with that as long as it is a review.

Virat Kohli waits for review to prove he's been clean bowled

It’s a shame isn’t John , if Langer would just ask us here at the roar he’d have a spectacularly different sides and some feuds that would go on forever.

Forget BBL form, Finch is an international gun

You can only select 11 ( or in India’s case 12 ) players at any one time and I’m quite content that our top eleven will in most cases be extremely competitive with anyone. From time to time other sides will beat us , sometimes thrash us but we will be fine . Isn’t NZ the top side in the world today , but of course the have a massive population as well.

India's population has nothing to do with their win over Australia

When someone bombards me my eyes glass over and I actually hear nothing , a plan though with a buyin is a completely different animal.

We need to get used to India dominating cricket

i think their “B” team helped them immensely , they were super hungry and committed , unlike their NZ side and their first test team. Hungary always beats content and bloated.

We need to get used to India dominating cricket

Geez , we lose a couple of series with some very poorly selected sides and the sky is falling . Didn’t NZ just beat them with their massive population.
Langer has far too much influence , good article in the SMH today kinda making that point.

We need to get used to India dominating cricket

For every peak there is a valley , our peaks are pretty high and our valleys , bar the 80s , not so low. We lost a series against what proved to be a very good Indian side , suck it up , at least it wasn’t England.

Does Australia need a new Test cricket captain or a new leadership model?

Olaf Prattl , a great Wyong boy. Should have been in your side BB.

The forgotten players: Balmain Tigers

As usual , a great read.

The Liebke Ratings: Australia vs India, fourth Test

First class cricket , are we still playing that other than tests?

Tim Paine's time as captain is done as Australia crumble to humiliation against India

Yes Ryan , there is a pretty good Australian side amongst the wreckage but poor selections camouflaged that and Langer has way to much influence in this side. Has Langer ever captained or coached a side to sustained success .

Not only is the sky not falling, this Australian Test team is really good!

Paine needs to find the internal fortitude to tell Langer to po. That’s were the real problem lays.
