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!

Great read Ronan. Yep the kiwis got a dose of reality!

Starc runs riot against rattled New Zealand

Oh well…I know you guys are going to pile into me here…but anyone who has “Wallabies Skills Coach” on their resume must be a comedian. We have had very little for years. The inability of our forwards to simply catch and pass have been…well. We have continually picked guys with “X” factor. It’s a great title…X of course being the unknown part of an equation.
Maybe I am a dinosaur (or Boomer as the kids like to say now) but we need to go back to basics! Forwards win matches, backs decide by what score. It is a beautiful simple game! Catch and pass.

Wise choice: Scott Wisemantel new attack coach as Wallabies confirm multiple appointments

Don’t take it the wrong way mate but as soon as I read “Shute Shield ” I know all I need to.
