This article was written under the assumption that no one would be beating Pogacar.
I like O’Connor’s chances for a podium, though.

What did you make of O’Connor’s performance on Stage 9?

There’s still time!

Michael Neser must be considered for the Ashes

Agree entirely, Lachie!
Starc is cooked, and clearly needs a break from cricket. His outburst at Bryce Street was just the latest example of a man in a frayed mental state.
His Shield bowling average is about 49, and he arguably should have been left out of this match, on form.
Conway has a better record against Queensland.

Matth,

Get in quick, otherwise I will steal this article concept! 🏉

Very sad! Yet another reason why Queensland is the superior sporting state. 😛

Why you should watch the Intrust Super Cup this season

I do not! As corrected below, Stimson is currently contracted with Bulldogs

In other big news, former New Zealand fullback Kevin Locke has just signed for the Magpies!

Bretherton and the team behind the scenes at Davies must have good connections.

Thanks my fact-checking came from the 2017 Grand Final team, and their Wikipedia articles, which may not have been updated recently.

Will be careful next time!

Good fact checking Dogs of War, my error!

Purely from memory, Stimson played in the famous 2017 Grand Final against the PNG Hunters, so probably had that in the back of my mind.

Good pickup Rob! The Hunters will be sacrificing a lot for our entertainment this season here in Queensland.

Great take Richo!

Sorry Mitch, it’s Neser’s time to shine

I agree that they will likely back him

Sorry Mitch, it’s Neser’s time to shine

Based on past form, I doubt it, but we can always dream!

They had the courage to drop Starc for Siddle in the Ashes, which gives us some hope…

Sorry Mitch, it’s Neser’s time to shine

Neser at No.7 is an interesting one I have heard.

He probably couldn’t do worse than Wade or Head atm.

Hi Scott,
I hope the concept of this article was entirely original, and not in any way taken from an article about Neser that I submitted last night. 😊
Love your work,
Max 🏏

Mitchell Starc should be dropped for Brisbane

Why do you think this is?

The next Keith Miller: The history of Australia’s search for an all-rounder (Part 2)

If this article had included spin-bowling allrounders, these guys would have made the cut:

Michael Bevan
Michael Clarke
Simon Katich
Andrew Symonds

Hi Elvis,

As mentioned in the fine-print, this article series concerns only pace-bowling all-rounders

Really regret publishing this during the Boxing Day Test. 😢
No engagement!

Speaking of the next Keith Miller, Cameron Green just got out for 45 today.
How do we rate him so far, Roarers?

Hi Roseville,

Moody is a good pickup. No much chop with the ball in Test cricket (why he didn’t make the cut for this article) 🏏

Decent opening bat for a while though, and probably unlucky to be dropped after that 1992 Sri Lanka series.

Hi Paul,

Great pickup! Walters was one of those guys that was never considered an “allrounder” per se, but can’t argue with those figures.

Over 100 wickets at first class level for NSW shows he was no statistical fluke either.

Spinning allrounders aren’t included in this article, but if they were:

Richie Benaud
Tom Veivers
Bob Simpson

Yes, my grandfather (now 94) used to say that Archer was one of his favourite cricketers for Queensland in that era.
