Chapter and verse

I read recently how some were questioning the worth of David Fine, the first Ashes poet-in-residence.
After a 5-0 drubbing you would expect nothing less and it was probably hard for Fine himself to write positive prose on England. Then again, there was the matter of Warne at Adelaide, Collingwood's double ton, Gilchrist's Perth fireworks, Warne's retirement and the SCG send-off for Fine to get his quill into.
I interviewed him for a Nobok Ashes podcast and you can listen here to the Derby man. Next week will be the final podcast where I tracked down Brett Lee's business partner at the pair's clothing outlet in Sydney.
