Podcast – Episode 51

August 2, 2012 1 comment

Coming in 2020? Surely not…

With the Ol… I mean, London ‘event’ in full swing, join Adrian, Matt and Tomo as they dissect the biggest sporting event on the planet. This is no normal analysis, that’s for sure, including a full review of the Opening Ceremony.

Tomo even suggests a sport that should be included in 2020, which would simultaneously challenge intellectuals and elite athletes alike.

Also on the show: Michael Clarke is headed to the Thunder – for one game, Michael Theoklitos legally changes his name, Curtis Good moves to the EPL, and Tomo unleashes in The Rant.

There’s all of that and plenty more, including our usual NRL, AFL and Super Rugby coverage. What’s not to love? Listen in now!

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…

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…
