Gee hasn't published any posts yet

We have just started another Ashes cycle so now is the time to see if Pucovski can handle test cricket. I would also expect Jhye Richardson to be the favoured third quick this summer to see if he is top level. Carey will probably have to wait a year but if things go our way 21/22 should be another horror summer for the Poms.

Marsh injury could bring Stoinis into Test frame

It’s not on 7 every night so nothing will change. CA ruined the formala which 10 had perfected by chasing a little extra money. The BBL is in decline and ODIs and T20s are largely irrelevant now because Sutherland wanted to show football and rugby he could get a TV contract with a b in front of it.

Why BBL08 wasn't a hit

Great news for the ODI team with Stoinis on the outer.

Mitch Marsh boosts Test claims with the ball

He was safe no matter what his Shield form was imho, lack of replacements and his record in Australia would get him in. Hopefully the flat tracker can keep it up when facing a quality bowling up. Batting difficulty on the Gabba overrated, Qld just not very good.

David Warner answers critics with Sheffield Shield century

Warner on 90* and NSW within 10 of Qld with 6 wickets left. Seems like the Gabba isn’t the batting mine field some made out it was. If Broads Bunny can handle it Burns and Khawajas failures can’t be excused by a tricky pitch.

Maddinson and Harris push Test claims with Shield tons

The Bulldogs are looking good for next year. Bruce is a top forward who can play down back if needed and Keath will add to their depth if he is okay.

AFL trade news: Mason Cox, Orazio Fantasia, Tom Papley, Ollie Wines and more

A bit of a left field one would be Greater Western Melbourne Kookaburras. The Sydney centric media and the Canberra parasites love to bang on about Western Sydney but Western Melbourne is experiencing huge growth. They won’t get an AFL team but with suburbs like Melton expanding rapidly the area will grow in importance. One of the few thing those soccer idiots have got right is basing a clubout west, that ground will get packed out each week because it will be the only genuine home team out there in a big competition.

Where should the 20th AFL team be based?

Warner in for the first test also according to Paine.

Wade ready for Test cricket speculation

Considering England scrapped a draw at home against an awful Australian team this could be a bad tour for England, NZ 2-0 the most likely scoreline.

England have named a team that can really test the Black Caps this November

Jack Steven, not in Kelly’s class but he is still a good player. Geelong wont lose much, Steven coming in and young players with another year under the belt should have them in contention next year. Not enough to win a GF as usual, but even with Kelly they were a level below top teams.

Who will fill Tim Kelly's boots at Geelong?

They need outside speed so Hill is a good pick up. St KIlda are hopeless at recruiting & drafting under normal circumstances, then add the dozens of sweetheart deals GWS & Gold Coast got and they are always going to struggle. Those two pretend clubs that have been a big drain on the talent pool.

Saints slogging towards mediocrity

Khawaja getting runs here does not matter a great deal, the upcoming Shield games are the important matches. Still it is much better to hitting tons than not doing much. A pity Broads Bunny isn’t out there looking for some form, but he has a free pass from Paine so he can sit back and relax.

Usman Khawaja's back-to-back tons send a message to Test selectors

That GF was the best advert for a Tasmanian team you can have. GWS are a team full of champs but zero soul.

Redemption arrives for the Richmond Tigers as GWS suffer a Giant meltdown in the grand final

Very, very generous, take 1-3 points of a lot of them. Mumford a 2 at best, he was hopeless. 4 for Greene , 23 harmless possessions and another facial exam from the overrated thug.

2019 AFL grand final: GWS Giants player ratings

GWS have spent eight years having no crowd so things like cheering might spook them.

Four predictions for this week's AFL grand final

Lots to look forward to this season. Can the Australian opening pair get to 20? Seeing how many tests the selectors can resist the Siren song of Mitch Marsh. Not seeing Stoinis in an Australian uniform. The Vics & the Renegades winning it all again.

Seven things to look forward to in this summer of cricket

Not fair to compare AFL crowds with NRL ones, different viewing culture. The Storm still give out free tickets, my kid got one two years ago and I took him. Not a bad idea, it was a fun afternoon and we are now both interested in the Storm when before we weren’t.

This weekend's grand final justifies the AFL's Giant investment

No it does not. GWS & Gold Coast are a waste of money. Give Tasmania a team, they actually care about football.

This weekend's grand final justifies the AFL's Giant investment

Bible bashers no, wife bashers yes. A lovely sport you guys have up north.

Benji Marshall questions NRL double standards in Lodge and Folau returns

Wise decision from England, they didn’t need two flat track keepers in their side, it’s doubtful if they needed one.

Bairstow dropped for New Zealand tour

Easy time to be a batsman now. Renshaw has been awful for a year but he gets two tons in the four Shield games before the next test and he is in.

Recent woes aside, Matt Renshaw can still become a Test star

He is too good for League. Why would a nice Christian boy want to play with all the wife bashers & drug users that code forgives?

Israel Folau set for rugby league comeback

Hopefully none of the Tassie team get in, I have seen jellyfish with more backbone. Even the Stars would be embarrassed by that collapse.

Marsh Cup form could decide Australian T20I spots

His finger was injured but he was bowling to English batsmen so 20 at 33 is acceptable. He not a great bowler but he is a very solid wherever he plays, unlike the batsmen.

We badly need a fit and confident GOAT this summer

No Big V on the Victorian LA uniform now for some reason either.

The Western Warriors name change a sign of the times
