Dane was named best and fairest in the 2004 Bathurst mixed indoor cricket competition. With nothing in the game left to achieve, he immediately retired at his peak to a reclusive life ensconced in the velvet of organised contests. Catch the man here: @eld2_0

Where runs are never respected, Bob. Almost not worth even taking guard

Literacy crisis: Helping Australians struggling to read a cricket pitch

Many thanks, PP VII

Could be, Paul? Might take the statue though, just because it has more exciting chat

Cheers matth

Cheers Paul, explained it for me beautifully. CA and bedfellows definitely the intended target here. Just had to lightly clip the tourists on the way through to make the point.

In saying this, refuse to yield that all three are libelous for not being India

The true spirit of rugby league? I’m glad you asked, Mr Gore. I believe such an intangible, unenforceable, interpretative and subjective guideline such is so perfect for the unappeasable masses of rugby league, you’d think it was tailor-made across the negotiation table in 1908. Leaving the term undefined, and thus a catalyst for facilitating further chaos in decision-making, is the true spirit of rugby league in itself.

Otherwise, it’s probs whatever Cameron Smith says, I’d reckon

There is some really weird stuff in the NRL rule book

This also sounds somewhat like Queensland selection policy

“The coaches box is damaging today’s youth.” This is seriously resonating, Paul. Might pitch to Four Corners

Always an upside Geoff!

Hey Big Daddy. This is all quality, but I particularly like the part about postponing projects around the house. I’ll live in squalor if it means no more grainy footage from far-off lands

Thanks Dogs! And a big thank you to Craig and his borderline violent tendencies too

Thanks Adam. I see you share my nuanced view on this situation. Calm heads

Will be interesting to see how the Integrity Unit assesses this one, Noosa Duck. Seems everyone agrees he was provoked. Whatever the outcome, I’m still calling for a ban. Ban everything. Ban bans!

All wrapped up neatly, Dunc. Doesn’t even need investigating TBH

Thanks Stormy. Just copy/pasted a heap of column inches and used a thesaurus, really. The content writes itself

Thanks Kris. Frankly, even I’m outraged at my own solution. In light of this, #V’landysOut, and the guy after him who’s yet to be hired

Cannot dips me lid enough, TG. I’ve seen enough after Sunday. Fan etiquette classes must be conducted to all club fanbases by Raiders peoples forthwith

Ben Cummins is a good man and a great referee – so lay off him!

Great read, AJ. This piece, and the recent words of Mr Gore, are two examples of how rugby league as a whole can learn a lot from the conduct of Canberra fans in the aftermath of this match. And I’m not just talking about processing the loss with something other than copious alcohol

23 hours in Sydney

Outstanding!

Everything you didn't know about the Dally Ms

Thank you for articulating what the sane collective are thinking, AJ. I really hope this goes viral

The uncomfortable truth about the NRL’s horrible media coverage

Stuffed for the premiership, yes. Personally would also be delighted to make park grade

Trbojevic loss highlights Sea Eagles appreciation of Manly men

Haha yeah, amazing how in negotiations he identified it would be newsworthy three years later

Shock: Rugby league coach may survive hastily offered contract extension

Can’t rule it out, Paul. They will have the cap room to blow. Unless Kieran Foran’s deal bequeaths him a small island in the final year?

Apologies DP. I hope you understand my explanation as provided to Arcturus. Light at the end of the tunnel though; I’m sure a new range of assistant coaches will fix all

Apologies Arcturus. I figured there is no point wasting good hatchets on something so steadfastly barnacled to the club
