No ? for this one

For Aus, Starc looks cooked and on the verge of doing something nasty to his ankle and probably is due for a well-earned rest, and apparently Boland's injury is actually a bit more severe than it seemed

Hobart's a decent city. Great distilleries, a decent architecture round the harbour, some great stuff to do round the city. **** City centre for pedestrians though - definitely built to satisfy the motorist. Much nicer city than Sydney, IMO.

EDIT: Would have been keen to see an Ashes test in Hobart. Flew into Hobart once at the same time as the Australian Test team. Only a couple (or is it one?) luggage conveyor and so was standing amongst the team as they waited for their bags. Pretty laid back. The customs beagles sniffing out for fruit rather than drugs etc. Very interested in Peter Siddle, for obvious reasons [the beagles, that is]. Unfortunately, didn't see the Test as I was heading out to the Franklin-Gordon NP for 10 days in the wilderness. **** the leeches though. Ugh.

I've had Hobart (and Bellerive Oval) on my list for a few years now. Hope to make it there at some stage.

More airports in Aus need sniffer beagles instead of old guys trying to frisk your balls

Hobart Airport news page shows they were training new beagles in October 2020 and a Biosecurity Tasmania post from December 2021 still shows beagles.
huh i thought they got retired a few years back. i guess a few airports are still holding strong rather than swapping to labs like everywhere else

Tasmania goes a fair bit harder on the biosecurity stuff than other states, though? At least that's my recollection.

Reminder that Hobart runs have to be multiplied by 2 for their actual value.

Look for Marcus Harris, this is his time for a Hobart 50

Hobart, like much of Scotland, is a wonderful place where the winds will make you wish you'd never been born.
