Why was Arnie so late to bring Cam Devlin on??? 😱 👎

Are you 'Arnie In' or 'Arnie Out' when it comes to Australia's national teams?

I thought Adelaide City would have rich Italian businessmen supporters who chip in for things like lights?

2021 FFA Cup preview: Is Adelaide City primed for an upset?

“not being good enough to be one of the two disciplines”….wasn’t Steve Waugh picked as an allrounder at the start of his test career?

Test XIs we should have had: 1985 Ashes

Are you referring to SOD or Steve Waugh though???

Do you think Cam Green is the real deal then, or not convinced?

So who’s your keeper for the 90’s side Sheek?! 😱 (assuming Healy’s omitted from hypothetically being selected for a 90’s side?)

It’s harsh to say “bad batting” as we clearly need to give credit for what was an outstanding bowling performance from England, with their gun four man pace attack which clearly limited the output of our gun batsmen.

That’s the one. Went on the front foot, trying to get Australia to open the border with NZ again. Was then pushing for NZ to have travel bubbles with individual states, rather than wait for all of Australia.
This current decision defies the precedent that the NZ government were keen to set last year when it was going to benefit them!

Bledisloe Cup in doubt after bubble closure

Maybe Jamez the NZ government learnt from the debacle last year, where cheeky & cunning selfish kiwis could’ve caused an outbreak in WA after flouting WA’s rules, where NZ was cut off from WA’s list of the quarantine free travel bubble as NZ was having new issues emerge.
They were booking two flights: one from NZ to the states that still had the open travel bubble with WA, then a second to WA, so they could fly under the radar into Perth without notifying the authorities they were from NZ, so they could then get out of observing two weeks quarantine whilst here! 😡 😡 😡 👎

The Deputy PM of NZ was whinging his head off when interviewed last year, as the problem for NZ is, is that their economy heavily relies on “Australian tourists”(i.e. the nearly 15% of NZ’s citizens that live in Australia going to NZ to see family & friends every year). The NZ government was desperate to get back an open border arrangement with Australia, and thus for their own convenience were happy to seek out deals with individual states for travel bubbles, instead of dealing with Australia as a whole, which apparently is so vital now, despite the fact WA is safer than NZ with any covid issues arising from the eastern states.

And also, this is the same NZ government that backtracked dramatically fast last year when the bledisloe was at risk due to their farcical insistence that the wallabies wouldn’t be able to leave the hotel to train in NZ…one Dave Rennie categorically said he wouldn’t tolerate.
VOILA, all of a sudden the NZ government managed to change their own rules regarding this just prior to the bledisloe! 😛

WA is far safer than NZ from whatever is going on in the eastern states right now. And this is the same NZ government that at the height of this pandemic in 2020 was complaining about not having open access to Australia, then wanted to have open border arrangements with individual states, rather than treat Australia as a whole.

Yes! It’s quite worrying that there seems to be an overreliance on Kerr to score and create goals.

What year was that?

Wow! Thanks Peter, I didn’t know that. Will check that out. 👍

I’ve got to get that Golden Boy book. Sounds like a captivating read!

Creating a single measure to rank the world’s greatest Test captains

Peter…you NEED England to win tournaments!!!
Italy aren’t amazing, but they just refused to lose (what are they up to, 20-30 games undefeated now?! 😱). To be fair though to England supporters, Southgate is a strange man for his decision on his penalty takers. Jordan Henderson (for one) is a calm, experienced player who I would’ve used.
Anyway, the point is the Germans, Italian, French (and now Spanish) have ups and downs, but they quickly bounce back to win tournaments!

He was woeful to the point the selectors shouldn’t have let him get that far. Ultimately a new batsman wouldn’t have been a worser option than Ponting at that stage.

Comparing eras of dominance: West Indies and Australia

This is the problem with you poms Peter. You crow about beating opponents that ultimately don’t count for anything. You beat Germany 2-0 in this tournament…well done. 👍 But ultimately will that matter? The Germans are probably more likely to win Euro 2024 than England is, and I would rather have my money on them any day!

I think I’m still very annoyed that he played test cricket for two years after he SHOULD’VE retired! And the playing on after quitting the captaincy was weird for mine! 🤢 👎

Yep, fair enough Bernie! 😂
I’m not sure where I got that perception from. I still rate that 2005 ashes hundred he scored as one of the best and gutsiest innings I’ve seen from an aussie player. 👍 🏏

Comparing eras of dominance: West Indies and Australia

Has only minor relevance Peter, YOUR blind spot is showing. Italy won Euro 2020 after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. 👍

Nonsense! You don’t want it to work. The NZ government is playing games again, like they did around bledisloe time last year!

Pretty cheeky stunt from the NZ government, suspiciously timed close to the bledisloe. Why including WA is truly baffling!
