I, too, suggest we all forget about last week. But more for my ego than anything else

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions: Round 2

That surprises me – was tossing up between the two a fair bit. But I don’t think it’s too much of a knock on a side to say they’ll lose to the Giants in Sydney. GWS are still stacked with talent.

Well said, Brett. A thoroughly disappointing decision.

SANZAAR's Sunwolves decision is all dollars and no sense

Roarers, Spiro’s already mentioned this in his piece, but I’ll chime in as well and say please don’t speculate in the comments section about the identity of the players or game involved in these allegations. Cheers

Hey baz, it pains me to say it, but I’m afraid not. We definitely want to get tipping back up and running again, but it’s something for the long term rather than the immediate future.

Could 2019 yield the closest Australian conference yet?

No worries – ranking teams based on how many games they win does have a certain elegant simplicity to it.

Super Rugby 2019 preview series: Chiefs

G’day Kiwikrs, we decided to rank all the teams based on how many wins/competition points we think they’ll get, rather than where they’ll finish on the ladder on account of the conference system.

But you’re absolutely right, of course, this would see them finish 6th on the table.

Look mate, much as I’d love to, I unfortunately don’t have the time to watch this like a hawk.

As for the notion of changing the rules just because it’s made you unhappy, that rather defies the very point of moderation.

Australia has proved that Hakeem al-Araibi will not be forgotten

Mike’s opinion on your comment had nothing to do with it being removed. That was the decision of me and our moderators; your comment added nothing helpful to the debate, and was only likely to sidetrack comments here away from genuine discussion on the issue.

As for Smith, I think his ODI skills are phenomenal. I’m surprised his average in coloured clothing is only 42, to be honest – his ceiling is far higher than that. As you say, though, his form leading up to his ban was poor.

Wade snubbed again as Australia reveal ODI squad for India tour

Yeah, he’s always seemed a better white-ball opener. Would like to see him up the top of the order alongside Finch with Carey dropping down, although I doubt that’ll happen given Warner’s impending return.

Graeme Hick is the batting coach at the moment, James.

I’d love to see Dizzy involved in the national coaching set-up, but I’d imagine that’s out of the equation for a while, at least; he’s got another two seasons to run on his contract at Sussex, plus his Sixers role.

Bombshell dropped as Australian bowling coach quits

Can’t help but wonder, with Khawaja’s selection, whether there’s more to Steve Smith’s injury than CA admitted yesterday – if he’s in serious danger of missing the World Cup, then it makes sense to give Khawaja a good run in the next two ODI series (although personally I’d much rather see him play Shield cricket in preparation for the Ashes).

Wade snubbed again as Australia reveal ODI squad for India tour

Sure. We’ve evidently got some work to do on that front, and we’ll get on it right away.

However, none of that excuses bullying another commenter.

Consensus… a rare thing indeed. If CA are struggling for a Greg Chappell replacement, my door is always open.

Fair to say the selectors won’t be picking spinners based on their ability to score 98.

I’m sure it’s to do with how well he’s playing T20 cricket right now, AJ. Not that that’s a particularly good excuse, mind you.

After demolishing Sri Lanka at home, here's how Australia's Ashes squad is shaping up

I’d be surprised if that’s the case. Jon Holland’s first-class numbers are significantly better than Agar’s, and Agar seems to be on the outer right now, what with being passed over for the ODI squad last month.
