Ashes 5th Test SCG Sydney

Australia v England, Ashes 5th Test SCG, Sydney, Thursday 4th – Monday 8th January, 2018.

Take five … The Ashes.

As the talking heads begin doin’ what they do best. Sharpening their knives. Me and my boys are wondering who’s for the chop first. You never know, someone may jump before the hounds are set free.

Who knows what the future holds, will the young turks really see the light of day. Patience and persistence is the key.
