  • Around the Wicket

    Alright, so the first test is over, and as expected, Australia take a 1-0 series lead. I can’t help but feel this was the Windies best chance at taking one off us, with Clarke and Hayden both out of the side. They didn’t, but they took us to 5 d...

  • Amnesty Australia say no to Olympic boycott

    The Olympic Torch has left our shores and with it has gone the cries for a boycott of the games. Perhaps as a shock to many, Amnesty International Australia, have also rejected any calls for an Olympic boycott. Speaking on behalf of Amnesty Aus...

    Volume 5 - Caribbean Capers Greetings and apologies. I must confess to a stuff up. When I read that the 1st test started on May 23rd – I assumed that was Caribbean time, and as a result – I thought I had 24 hours before the start of the test. S...

  • Sonny Bill Williams - The Wounded Lover

    Sonny Bill Williams has traditionally been one of the most humble players in the NRL despite his freakish talents. For most of his career he has sworn by loyalty to the Bulldogs, openly believing there is more important things than just money. Ear...

    Volume 4 - Calypso Crisis Part III OK – as the series draws ever closer – let’s take a look at the Windies batting. It’s hard to predict their side, because they currently have an 18 man training squad, much to my disgust. They will cut...

    I'M hearing Brett Finch and Braith Anasta were both devastated by their Origin snubbings. What really cut the pair was the way it all went down at the 11th hour. Apparently Finch had heard he was all but over the line for a spot on the bench, ...

  • Around the Wicket - V 3, Calypso Crisis - Part II

    “Doesn’t matter what they make, they’ll bowl the others out for less.” Time after time, we saw that quote proven to be true, as the fearsome West Indian bowlers toyed with, and then destroyed, opposition batting line ups. Sadly for Caribb...

  • Inside the Sheds

    The Ricky Stuart vs Phil Gould brouhaha has been rugby league's worst kept secret for the past six years. It started when Ricky was at the Roosters and Gus was over the top of him as coaching director. That was in 2002, the year the Roosters w...
