DON’T worry about the scare from Ireland ... Bangladesh is the minnow who could rock Australia’s cricketing world this summer.

    JARRYD Hayne has opened up on the intensity of his new life as an America footballer, saying: “It’s like State of Origin - every week”.

    WALLABIES players thought they were off for a light jog for their final training session, but they were wrong. A ferry ride and old-school flogging lay in wait in Manly.

    JOE Burns would take whatever number selectors pull out of the hat for him in Bangladesh, but deep down he wants to be Australia’s new Test opener.
