Worst cricket ground in Australia. Brought to you by the sporting capital.

Extraordinary scenes as Shield clash suspended over MCG pitch safety concerns

Those bushfires…..join the dots.

The last column about Israel Folau ever, I promise

Not trying to be too negative but the future of country rugby league is in a perilous state. A lot of country towns in NSW and QLD are now in greater hardship because of the drought. These events cause people to rethink their future living in these towns.

Setting up the future of Country Rugby League

Everyone’s a winner

Rugby AU and Israel Folau settle legal dispute

He is great to watch. A real excitement machine. Ravens are a good view at the moment.

The Raven resurrection behind Magic Jackson

Yeah rain in Adelaide ha ha. When does that happen?

Australian confirms unchanged XI for second Test

Can fully appreciate what you’re saying Alan. Went to the first day of the Gabba test for 20 years straight. Last time I went was Ashes 2010/11 series. I’m never going again. It’s very poor value and just a crap ground. I associate my dislike with being older (and softer!!) and wanting better comfort. So for me it’s a kilo of tigers and some tasty beverages from the couch with a few mates who can get the day off work. Cool sea breeze through the back door. Looxury.

Why I won't be going back to the Gabba

Wings – the band the Beatles could have been

Why Wests Tigers could be the perfect fit for Latrell Mitchell

It could go the other way though. Then Folau will be showing his money to RA.

I might be in the minority, but I have never ever listened to the Olympics on radio.

Sad day for Australian sport as ABC opts against broadcasting 2020 Olympics

The clubs that want to recruit Fifita now have the negotiating power.

Broncos' David Fifita arrested in Bali

That old saying ‘you can only beat what’s in front of you’ comes to the fore here. I’ll wait until we start beating India, England and NZ on a regular basis.

Langer has Australia purring in T20Is

That’s cricket though. Stuff the people who paid to come along. What other sport would you see where rain can interrupt the first session of a test, yet they’ll go to lunch instead of starting play.

'Doesn't make much sense': Aaron Finch questions the wisdom of 20-min innings break

Do not disturb. Leave him alone in Shield. He is doing just fine.

What do we do with Shaun Marsh?

I’m with you Brendon. If the player isn’t playing (because they can’t anymore) then it’s not a rort. Remove the money from the cap and move on.

Are injury retirements a way of beating the salary cap?

Don’t worry Mitchell. You can now take bowling advice from a rower.

Finally, Mitchell Starc has emerged from T20 hibernation

Spot on. There are none. The Wallabies are totally bereft of any skills and are a team of fumblers. Contrast this with Japan. Sure they got beat by South Africa, but at least they looked capable, unlike our team of fumblers and bumblers.

The next Wallabies coach is an idiot

Nice musical reference there.

Michael Cheika's emotional reaction as the Wallabies bow out of the World Cup

Stuart was quite ok in defeat. Didn’t blame anyone but themselves.

England hits back at Cheika over Stuart: 'You'd be stupid not to try and learn from him'


Marsh injury could bring Stoinis into Test frame

I’ve never known rugby union to be so into the referees/TMO. That’s what we mungo’s do!

Is there a conspiracy against the minnows at the RWC?

It will be a nightmare, as we watch the Wallabies fumble and bumble all over the field like we usually do.

A Wallabies Rugby World Cup quarter-final against England: Dream or nightmare for Michael Cheika?

The referees were having a fine game up until that decision. They could have at least called time out and have the bunker check if it touched Tedesco or not. At least then they are getting the right decision. Everyone can then see the right decision was made. The players reset and we get a thrilling final 7 mins.

We have to be honest about refs

“On paper you’d say that there are only two hopes: Santa Ana Lane and Sunline”
Good to see the old girl back…..(sorry Matt!)
