Defence may be an issue though.

Why the Dragons signing Corey Norman is a mistake

Yes Sims needs to be resigned. There were many games the dragons wouldn’t have won without Dufty. I think Lomax will be on the wing with Aitken and Lafai in the centres. Jai Field is a liability in defence.

I’m saying the money should ve been spent on a winger rather than having inexperienced players there.

Does he fit in with the team structure though ?

According to nrl.com he only had 15 line breaks mate.

Glad you liked it Sledge. Have a good day champ.

They have before.

Why have Latimore when there is already K Sims, Lawrie and Leilua on the bench. In the reserves there is Kerr, Ford, Host and Allgood.

Oates would have been expensive, but not 800k. No matter what they needed a big winger who can help the forwards get out of their own half through the middle. Its what they will lose from Macdonald.

I’d choose between Wade and Paine.

Australian batting woes, Mitchell Starc's form, India's potent attack and more: Five talking points from the first Test

Matt Wade a potential option?

I heard he isn’t motivated by the lack of publicity and money.

We need consistency, he doesn’t have it. Everyone is begging for someone to lead this batting attack similar to how Mike Hussey and Steve Smith did it.

Daniel Hughes puts his hand up for baggy green recognition

Fast, bouncy wicket. I think I’d be sticking with him, he will suit this wicket. Give him some time to find form, he’ll be good.

Mitchell Starc must be dropped for the second Test against India

I think Ponting was more saying that he should never have been opening in the first place.

It's time for a new Test opener

If they want to win, he will go down the order or get dropped.

Its like getting a club halfback to play centre for State of Origin.

I reckon Marsh deserves another go, but for Finch the selectors just agree that he can’t face the new red ball.

Hey Kopa, I think Patterson and Stoinis are very good players however, they haven’t been consistent enough with the bat in shield cricket to get a run in test cricket.

Burns has experienced test cricket before and I think his average of around 35 this year could have been more if he’d gone on with his 60s and 70s. He has been consistent.

Although Shaun Marsh cops criticism, there is no better alternative to him in Australian cricket at the moment. That’s reality.

Marcus Harris to make his debut.

The green Adelaide pitch will favour India

This instance of ball tampering was different, it involved acquiring sandpaper, planning and getting the most junior player in the team to tamper the ball and then lying to the umpires on the field and public in the press conference. There was also need for change with abusive culture. Hence the long bans.

Yes spectators and broadcasters deserve the best side available but we also want an honest side that doesn’t cheat and isn’t viewed by the cricketing world as abusive.

Time for Cricket Australia to end the Smith, Warner and Bancroft bans

How can the Marsh’s keep their spot when the selectors have so many better options. Renshaw, Maxwell, Handscomb, Pucovski and Stoinis just to name a few.

The Liebke Ratings: Pakistan vs Australia, second Test

I still can’t seem to find where I said it wasn’t a good performance with the bat. Not sure what you are on about champ.

Enjoy a draw Australia, this game has a different smell to it

I don’t remember suggesting that it wasn’t a good performance with the bat in the fourth innings, maybe specsavers can help you out.

Aus reached 370 without getting bowled out in the 4th innings. That was surely a road.

Your eyes must be painted on.
