Re: The Cricket Thread

Kiwi batsmen have been very disappointing against a 3 man Aussie attack.

Re: The Cricket Thread

Pitch is playing some tricks now. Lyon will exploit the rough and the quicks only need to bowl back of a length at off stump. Test as good as over.

Only if you can find somebody better. Those are hard to come by right now.

Even more disturbing is Langer has said Siddle is under consideration to replace Hazelwood in Melbourne.

Re: TPAs per club “revealed”

Once again comes back to more transparency around player payments. It's a sport that generates revenue through public interest yet there is still that belief the public doesn't need to know.

AUS well on top after 2 days.. And Steve Smith..get him up here !!!! They were saying on ABC radio yesterday that James Pattinson is at the WACA and is staying in Perth for concussion cover for the bowlers...interesting..😜 Word is Hazelwood only thinks it's his hammy and it's actually concussion.

He's a better bowler than a lot of people realise. Surprised he hasn't been called on more since coming in as a batsman. He might need to now with Aussies down to just 2 seamers.

It would be awesome if our players knew how to review How come every time we get someone out LB, they review, and now Burns doesnt and he wasnt out Idiots Watching live it looked plumb. Not so much on replay. I can understand both umpire giving it and Burns not reviewing. Both were still wrong.

Re: Canberra Raiders sign Matt Frawley to development contract

interesting that a lot of you seem to think that development stops at a certain age. If no club wishes to sign a player then it is obvious that they need to continue to develop their game in order to obtain a contract. Regardless of their age. Its not a junior development contract which would possi...
