MITCHELL Johnson may be the most Herculean fast bowler that’s ever been, but England are still looking to roll out the green carpet for him at Edgbaston.

    MITCHELL “MJ” Johnson, Mitchell “The Star” Starc, Josh “Hoff” Hazlewood, Peter “P Siddy” Siddle and young sensation Patty Cummins are Australia’s No.1 boy band.

    WHILE the lion’s share of attention is on the return of South Melbourne to the national stage in the FFA Cup, Heidelberg United coach George Katsakis has a simple message — don’t forget about us.

    GRAEME Swann phoned into an Australian radio station pretending to be his former England teammate Kevin Pietersen — and completely destroyed him.

    SHE’S the baddest woman on the planet but Australia’s never had a glimpse of her in the flesh. That might be about to change.
