Punter: "My scruffy shame"
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CAPTAIN OF THE AUSTRALIAN TEST TEAM, RICKY PONTING
I know things are a bit tough at the moment.
Your batting career seems to be going down the toilet, you’re leading a team that played like a pack of dills and the way we’re going, we’d be hard-pressed to beat the Irish test team, but really – is this any excuse for letting yourself go like this.
I mean, is it really so hard to shave properly.
Get a grip man. What sort of message is this to be sending to the yoof of Australia?
And speaking of yoof.
The Hun today had their front page, a two-page splash and an editorial all devoted to the shenanigans of some Year 12 students at Melbourne’s Xavier College – a posho mick school in the eastern suburbs – because OMG, OMG, OMG, it’s the end of civilisation as we know it.
As the case may be.
At least it knocked the Lapthornes off the front page.
