I simply love sport. I spent 15 years umpiring cricket. In my younger days I played tennis, cricket and rugby. Yep I agree, most quite badly! I am very fond of horse racing and have previously been in a syndicate that owned dogs and horses. I know the highs and lows of owning these animals! I have a batting average of 2 but a bowling average of less than 18. I made the transition from pacey winger (100m in under 15secs) to flanker. Oh well! I have lived and worked in quite a few countries thanks to my work commitments but love Australia!

FFS? Clearly you are quoting the one and only Machooka?

Gees Geoffrey…crouching tiger hidden details. Mr Barrett had bigger problems in Perth than Brisbane. And yes a crazy good selection.

Thanks AJ. This is a massive issue.I have no doubt that you have been following Geoffrey’s articles on this precise subject. There must be a balance between playing and life. Concussion is a very serious issue. Very.

An excellent analysis Ronan. We have seen red ball cricket dominated by white ball playing style for a while now. So this kind of play is actually very important.

Bryce Street's defensive batting style could translate to Tests

must be a regular customer then JN!

I’d still like to see the Force in round one say early February playing the Highlanders in Port Headland!

Fantastic news Daniel! Now to make it happen. Let’s hope the island teams get to play a couple of games at home as a minimum. Otherwise it would be like repeating the Pakistan cricket team not playing at home for all those years. Just a tragedy for their fanatical fans!

Steve Smith should never captain Australia again

ok. but answer the question. Who then?

Steve Smith should never captain Australia again

Hmmmm Geoffrey. It’s a sad sign of the times when they are effectively altering the stats by changing their rules. Certainly this kind of thing wouldn’t hold up in court. Funnily enough this is precisely where it will be sooner rather than later.

How the NRL fixed the concussion problem

You know the funny thing about the sandpaper gig is that the on field umpires did not think the ball was significantly altered. They inspected the ball a few times…before and after! This was first and foremost a media beat up. Not that I am defending the players involved As for Smith ever being captain again, who would be a better choice?

Gees Brett I thought you had a stats guru on speed dial for a bit there! Yes interesting rivalry hey!

Reds-Brumbies has become 'the' modern-day Australian rugby rivalry

Yes some interesting matches Geoffrey!
