    Oh god. I have an Australian cousin and he's very depressed about the state of Aussie sport these days. Aren't your cricket team getting walloped by India at the moment too? Sad days for a proud sporting nation.

    It's really sad. But things will change, eventually. And one small crumb of comfort: at least the Aussie team is taking discipline seriously in dealing with this - as they said, it would have been so easy just to sweep it under the carpet or just give them a reprimand, rather than a benching. There are other teams who would have taken the easy route but it doesn't serve the team's best interests. And in any case, what's so bad about a great moustache?!? ;-)

    It's actually a case of going BACK to how seriously they took discipline and protocols. They used to be very strict about even wearing the right T-shirts or wearing a jacket for breakfast, that sort of thing. But it was important. It sets high standards. The past few Wallabies teams don't look like they have that kind of toughness with one another, hence the results.
