Marsh: Don’t blame the WAGs

After the shocking Ashes loss the fingers have been pointed at the wives and girlfriends of our best cricketers. However, selector Rod Marsh says it’s ‘codswallop’ to attribute the loss to loved ones.

Captain Michael Clarke and coach Darren Lehmann have both slammed Ian Healy’s suggestion that WAGs were a distraction during the side’s failed campaign to retain the turn.

Fathers Mitchell Johnson and David Warner have also questioned the logic and why nobody queried the issue after the second Test at Lord’s.


Marsh, who played 96 Tests for Australia and recently returned to touring life as chairman of selectors.
