The Roar is where I, an 'Expert', write my ratings, where I grade the most relevant aspects of virtually every Australian Test and ODI. (Sorry, T20 and/or non-Australian cricket fans). I also sometimes write other stuff too.
Most recent pieces
- Pakistan v Australia - First Test Report Card
- Fifth Ashes Test Report Card
- Fourth Ashes Test Report Card
And here's the writing that nobody is willing to pay for (yet!).
Friday First Drafts
A weekly experiment in which I go through my giant list of cricket ideas, choose one and then churn out a first draft. (Note: currently on hiatus while I write my next book. It will return in May 2022.)
After every day of the 2019 Ashes and 2021/22 Ashes, I wrote a handful of pages telling the story of the series in screenplay form. Get the entire 2019 Ashes screenplay (with commentary) here and the full 2021/22 Ashes screenplay (with commentary) here
The Forty Funniest Cricketers of All Time
In 2016-2017, I counted down the forty funniest cricketers of all time. Each year after that, I've updated it with the standout comedy cricketer of the year.
A shameless Onion-style rip-off. PLUMB! is a parody newspaper of current cricket events, updated as I think of fresh jokes.
