It’s been far from a fairytale end to Test cricket for Michael Clarke…

The major sporting development in the last little bit is the surprise NRL news that Wests Tigers have given favourite son, Robbie Farah, “permission to negotiate with other clubs”, despite having two years to run on a contract.

Get us on Twitter at @CheapSeatsPod, on Soundcloud, iTunes, and the TuneIn radio app, and get your questions in for next week using the tag #AskTheCheapSeats. And stay cheap!
