|Joan - thrash the kids|
|Some discipline would do them good....|
But while Ms Collins' views on the breakdown of society may strike a chord, she seems to have little to say on important issues such as whether Test Cricket can survive in the world of the IPL. This is a shame. It is also a shame that she has never observed upon the iron discipline showed over 100 years ago by one of her namesakes.
That innings was the high point of Collins' cricket career. Although he played at Lords for the Army and scored a half century he never played First Class cricket. He entered the Royal Artillery in 1902 and died at Ypres in November 1914. As was only too tragically common, his brother was also killed in the war to end all wars.
