ASHES TO ASHES...
The track was green, the clouds were low and the Pom quicks were sending down unplayable thunderbolts. The team that batted first was a gonner.
But Sky Sport’s resident critic, Rebecca Wilson, was already espousing the reason for Australia’s run total of 60. “The players had their families with them”, she claimed with some authority. How can Australia’s cricket dominance be defended in between romantic dinners for two and changing nappies?
Hate to tell you Rebecca, but the dominant Poms also had their families with them... we were playing them at home!
Perhaps the Aussie families were sent home prior to Steve Smith and Chris Rogers sharing an unbeaten 259 run partnership to help thrash a defenceless England in the second Test?
What a load of frog droppings! The reason our batsmen failed is that the conditions were reversed and all but Clarke had decided to nervously defend by poking at unguided missiles.
Most wickets are lost when defending, not scoring.
Even "Footy Show" hosts, Fatty Vautin and Peter Sterling, have refused to work with Wilson, claiming "She brings nothing to rugby league" and that she is a "liability".
Rebecca wants booing banned at AFL level. The booing reaction to Adam Goodes’ racist antics almost brought her to tears as she roundly condemned the bogan crowds for expressing their dislike of Goodes the football player.
Get a proper job Rebecca. Your silly rants and abrasive personality were lost on most viewers years ago.
