Gough v Thommo – round 1

Following Jeff Thompson’s outburst (“Hoggard’s like a net bowler when you compare him to McGrath and Kasprowicz”) last week, Gough has replied in kind:

He told BBC Radio Five Live: “It’s all right saying Australia are a good side, which they are, but I’m not for it when it becomes disrespectful.”

Well said, Dazzler.
