The Monday Wrap – 5/3/12

Yes that’s right, the Monday Wrap is back…for this week at least. The greatest game of all is back for 2012 as well, while the cricket and football have also thrown up some interesting points this week. Check out my assessment of the weekend’s action across four codes. Read more…

Calamity in Cape Town

November 14, 2011 Leave a comment

My oh my. Australians all over the country are still sitting there, wondering what in the world happened in the First Test against South Africa. Even more so, they are wondering who is to blame in all this. Is it the selectors for not stopping the rot earlier and cleaning out the whole line-up rather than simply the only batsman scoring runs? Is it the players themselves for simply throwing in the towel and not even attempting to counter the swinging ball? Or was it simply that the South African bowling attack had their big moment, and were too good for the Australians? Read more…

The Summer of Cricket – Part Two South Africa

November 7, 2011 1 comment

As the home summer season edges closer, we have a bumped Test series between South Africa and Australia, unfortunately limited to just two Tests due to scheduling, but enthralling all the same. After Australia rose one spot in the Test rankings with a series victory over Sri Lanka, they face an even tougher challenge against the best pace attack in the world. How will they go? Will Phil Hughes again dominate the South Africans? Will Morne Morkel and Dale Steyn rip through the Australian top order like they have done with so many other nations? Will Patrick Cummins become the yougest Australian Test debutant since Craig McDermott? Read more…

The Monday Wrap – 10/10/11

The Monday Wrap returns following a massive weekend of sport, and one enthused (by sport), yet heavily bored (by other things) author. Trying not to miss anything I’ll take a look at the return of the A-League, the Champions League Twenty20 finals, the Rugby World Cup quarter finals (although I’ll leave the main analysis to our man on the ground and the best in the business Shippy) as well as  the battle for Brookvale version two. All that and more in The Monday Wrap! Read more…

The Summer of Cricket – Part One Sri Lanka

August 30, 2011 1 comment

So we have the first cricket of the season (I know it’s not summer, but we’ll start here anyway) following the Argus Review, which has shaken up the whole sport, and hopefully made some immediate changes for the better. I’ve decided to do previews of the season, starting with the Sri Lanka tour, then the South African tour, the home tests, and finally the Big Bash. We start in Sri Lanka, and the First Test already has some interesting points coming from it. Read more…
