Re: Canberra Raiders hooker Tom Starling charged with assaulting police

You really have to wonder about the person leading the PP here, same as the Scott case. Either someone isn't giving them the full brief or they are dreaming rainbows. In both cases the evidence seems to be very thin to continue the charges. If they keep this up we may need to declare them as 3rd pa...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Paine out on 50. Made the mistake of edging it to Rohit who's the only one that can catch. Sensational outswinger from Shardul Thakur. Paine, like Head, is a player where you know what you are getting. A bloke who makes starts but can't go on. There's not much wrong with Paine's batting contributio...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Which middle order bats are pushing for Test selection? I've only really kept up with the openers this season. I suppose Harris could shift down if Pucjoski returns (or vice versa). Harris :lol: Plenty of other batsmen who have actually handled test cricket before. Head, Khawaja, Patterson, Renshaw...

Re: The Cricket Thread

Score right now is below par albeit a reasonable one. Good bowling (and catching) could see us with a decent lead. The deck looks very flat although the ball has been swinging.

That gives me plenty of confidence knowing Paul Kelly is in charge of the vaccine roll out. He's very talented. As long as he doesn't sing "Darling It Hurts" while giving us the jab.

5 for 215 on a road against a drastically under strength attack is not great. Green and Paine need to capitalise.

What I don't get is Head got dropped to bring in Pucovksi. Now he's out injured wouldn't it make sense to recall Head rather than Harris who has a far inferior record?
