England have 3 keepers who are supposedly legitimate top 6 batsmen, and it’s getting them nowhere. Keeper at 7 always the best option

I’d absolutely love to see a Smithy hundred at Lords

It’s a tough situation

Do we care more about the World Cup or the Ashes?

Starc hasn’t been a reliable batter in a long time

He looked back on form

It’s hard to tell who is the one at fault for the Wallabies poor attacking. Deciding between Cheika and Larkham is the chicken or the egg situation.

Stephen Larkham sacked as Wallabies assistant coach

Dickwella’s sledging didn’t rival Pant, but it was still pretty funny

The Liebke Ratings: Australia vs Sri Lanka, second Test

This last test specifically was super significant for Khawaja’s future. There is a lot of talk about dropping Harris to include Warner, and this wouldn’t be so widely assumed if Khawaja had failed again in this test. It’s proven to be very important.

Five talking points from Australia vs Sri Lanka second Test

Yeah I agree. He’s only 20, he’s got loads of time to continue to get better.

Stacking our ODI team with players who don’t deserve inclusion would be a mistake. We need to be smart and thoughtful when selecting the squads for both the World Cup and the Ashes, there’s no need to make any rash decisions.

The way Farrell reacted really irritated me because he knows what he’s doing.

Let's talk about that decision

World rugby will only cite a player post match if the offence is deemed to be worthy of a red card. So I had no expectation that he would be cited. It deserved a yellow card. End of.

Do you think World Rugby would bother listening to him regardless?

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah Fionn I agree. Look I don’t want to stray too far from my article’s point. I think Cheika has an innate right to criticise the referee. But that doesn’t mean I’m absolving him from blame. He very much to blame for the current strife Australian rugby finds itself in.

Touché

Ah interesting. I actually haven’t seen that. The camera man was too busy filming Kepu running away with glee, only to be called back.

I feel like an undesirable tangent had started here…

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah absolutely, that’s what my article is about

Best thing I’ve seen all day

Thanks for the explanation, I actually do appreciate it. I do understand the law, I reckon a lot has to do with the context of the ruck and the positioning of all the other English defenders… I won’t bore you with the explanation.

Australia deserved to lose no doubt. Major improvements are necessary.

Let's talk about that decision

True

Yeah the three penalties thing was a really strange way to phrase whatever he was trying to say

Let's talk about that decision

Yeah it sucks bro

Yeah hopefully the refs can improve before the World Cup

Disagree
