    Has there been an increase in other sports at junior level in this time? I imagine soccer. Any other sport?

    As my acclaimed Ashes Aftermath paper pointed out, junior sports participation is down across the board. Though cricket is down more steeply.

    Mate, last year I had kids who were pulled out of under 10s because their parents wanted them to study for the selective schools test.

    Which was two years down the track.
