    That's lucky then...they probably wouldn't have even bothered trying otherwise.

    The key being "of a fielder". Accidental or otherwise, the batsman isn't a fielder.

    No, more fully the law references a throw or "the wilful act of a fielder". The last involvement of a fielder was the throw, and anything the ball does after that is irrelevant. They got it wrong,...

    Time to rush Stirzacker into the Wallabies squad so he signs for next year. Seems to be how it works now, not the other way around. Taste of things to come...

    Although the truth of it is that on projects in Australia, especially when managed by government, we tend to pay for fillet mignon and are lucky if we even get cheeseburgers.

    Not sure I entirely agree Shasta. Unless Clyne was saying that in every other case of a CoC breach the sponsors stood up and said they were in favour of drug taking/assault/public pissing etc, but...

    I would hope that the moment the World Rugby Nations Championship got canned GRR was in their ear. The impression I got was they were pinning almost as much hope on that as RA, so I can't help...

    I have to say, without the biggest player in the Asian market involved, I think GRR will struggle to be viable for long. IMO it needs them to create a stable base for the other teams...

    Extending Clyne's logic, I have never heard him come forward and say that he is happy with having his nuts unkicked. It would be nice to think he has someone as concerned for him as he is for the...

    That is being remarkably generous, Ali. I think it far more likely that he is engaging in a well established political/management practice, carefully wording a true thing to tell a lie. Then if...

    Indeed. I'm still breathtaken by the hypocrisy of Clyne making a statement about "blatantly misrepresenting the facts in soft ball PR interviews", in an interview with the SMH, then coming out with...

    Totally irrelevant with respect to Clyne's concern. Being a Muslim is no less a protected status in Australian law. And the threat and disrespect to them of people drinking alcohol would be far more...

    Good to hear Clyne is so concerned for his employees. I imagine that will presage a complete ban on all alcohol then, as they could also potentially be in litigation with employees who are Muslim and...

    Of course not, but that is the stupidity of the Australian rugby structure. They've already made it, and will now each take up a SR spot and get two years of professional development put into them to...

    Relatively speaking, not a bad effort for Harris. He only got one thing wrong, although it was the fundamental premise of the article in it's entirety.

    I'd see it as a bit of a project. Wouldn't be immediate, or necessarily even real soon, as I'd hope they would learn the lesson from the past. Maybe start with an expanded academy offering...
