Psaltis is becoming the best play-by-play caller, if he isn’t already. Understated, informative and lets the analysts have their room to add insight

Viewers need more of Paul the analyst, less of Fatty the class clown's cringeworthy commentating

right you are, after a re-listen, he said slight not high. But it takes more than slight contact for Collins to bleed his own blood. Terrible decision not to award a penalty. Just because someone knocks on means they can be fair game to cop a high shot

'Embarrassing': Joey fumes over Knights keeping injured Ponga on the park as Roosters rally to win nail-biter

Mundine’s main gripe, and rightly so, was that Matthew Johns who was past his prime by then, was chosen ahead of him for the end of year Australian team for the Tri Nations in 1999 after he had blitzed it for the Dragons in the finals

Why his latest ban could be best thing for Latrell’s career - or the beginning of the end

Many clubs have bought themselves a side but it rarely translates into a title, like Manly in the early 80s, Parra in the late 90s, Tigers over the past decade, Dogs recently https://www.theroar.com.au/2023/01/31/bulldogs-path-to-glory-full-of-pitfalls-very-rarely-do-nrl-clubs-actually-buy-a-premiership-winning-team/

Getting value for money from stars is the biggest competitive advantage in the NRL - and the flip side can be devastating

Fifita wasn’t as bad as Dugan & Moylan for the Sharks at the tail end of their contracts!

He’s a very good winger in what is likely the final year of his career. Whether they rev up Chevy or send out Savage, it’s time to invest in the future

NRL Power Rankings: Round 3 - Eels seal real deal status, Bunnies need Easter miracle, Tigers terrrrific, Titans in tatters

The selectors had the chance over the past 4 Tests to go in the direction they thought would work against India and beyond – the problem that looms now is if Khawaja keeps regressing and Smith continues to look out of place at opener, they may soon need two new batters at the top of the order

The Dean Jones example that Australian selectors must avoid in regenerating ageing Test squad

there was a classic moment when the Nine commentators tried to label the many parts on the body where Merv had been struck during the innings with the old on-screen technology

Andrew that sounds like a euphemism

if the Roosters played the Panthers this weekend do u think Penrith would not be the likely winner?

Rejigged Aussie batting line-up fails again as top-order collapse puts Black Caps on track for drought-breaking Test win

All four results are in play

Rejigged Aussie batting line-up fails again as top-order collapse puts Black Caps on track for drought-breaking Test win

among the current team – Marsh, Head, Marnus all said they didn’t want to do it. Green was going to be shoehorned into the role until Smith said he’d do it

Rejigged Aussie batting line-up fails again as top-order collapse puts Black Caps on track for drought-breaking Test win

you are correct, it has been imbalanced and not performing for a while. Smith can’t resist playing at pretty much every delivery

Marnus regains form but Australia's ongoing middle-order woes put heat on Carey as Kiwis claw back into Test

Carey’s been struggling for a long time, Green’s got one decent score in the 6 he’s played since his recall, Head has been getting out cheaply all summer apart from 1 knock in Adelaide, Marsh has not passed 40 in his past 6 knocks … this is a middle order that is struggling, and there’s a difference between having ongoing woes and being woeful. Nowhere have they been described as woeful

Marnus regains form but Australia's ongoing middle-order woes put heat on Carey as Kiwis claw back into Test

even Michael Clarke had some struggles after his first few Tests & the risk of bringing someone in like Davies before he has a solid bank of Shield experience is he could end up like Nic Maddinson a few years ago & never make his way back

Pipeline running dry: Aussie selectors struggling to find young batters knocking at the door, let alone bashing it down

they were never going to drop Marnus, Head or anyone else for that matter for this Test but Uzzy is showing signs of age, Smith has been cryptic about his retirement plans and Marsh and Carey are not young despite being very fit cricketers. The selectors need to find a few diamonds in the rough soon

Pipeline running dry: Aussie selectors struggling to find young batters knocking at the door, let alone bashing it down

Hardie definitely looks the goods for a batting all-rounder gig but the way Marsh has rejuvenated his red-ball career, he could be there for another few years

Pipeline running dry: Aussie selectors struggling to find young batters knocking at the door, let alone bashing it down

It’s a shame about Puc, he definitely looked the goods but with all these concussions mounting up from getting hit by bouncers, even if he were to work his way back into contention for the Test team, he’d be targeted by fast bowlers even more so than the standard opening batter

Pipeline running dry: Aussie selectors struggling to find young batters knocking at the door, let alone bashing it down

Australia have copped plenty of stick in recent times for the way they have bowled to the tail but that was diabolical from the Kiwis in tactics and execution early on day 2

Test Mortem: Aussie aura living rent free in Kiwi minds, Marnus officially in a form slump, DRS needs review

whether it’s in newspapers if u remember them or online when headlines can morph into many different shapes and sizes depending on the device, the shorter option is always the better one … do you have a probelm that Ravichandran Ashwin always has his surname used for headlines?
