Tri-colours reach out to cricket superstar


//

Steve Smith and Roosters star Luke Keary are set to swap places and sporting codes before the tri-colours finals campaign, in one of modern sports most bizarre trades.

Ok, not really, but footage that has emerged of Smith throwing a tasty cut-out pass to batsman-turned-winger Marnus Labuschagne on the left edge at Australia's impromptu touch football training session proves the versatility of the visiting number four.

Slotting in as the primary ball-handler, Smith took a pass from Michael Neser's quick play the ball. Drifting left, his hesitation-step caught defender David Warner off balance (clearly missing the up-and-out defensive memo).

Seeing space down the left edge, a perfect cut-out pass past an overs-line running Travis Head crashed onto Labuschagne's chest, allowing the wiley winger to dive over untouched, admittedly through some average defensive work from opener Marcus Harris.

Clearly happy that a keen snapper caught the pass in question on camera, Smith took to Instagram to show off his right-to-left, captioning the post: "I'll be back in time for the finals @Sydneyroosters."

The Roosters responded, citing a stipulation in their trade clause, asking Smith to "bring them the Ashes," before further conversation could occur. Keary's spot seems safe for the time being as a result.

Roosters fullback James Tedesco seems keen for a change in their halves, though, asking Smith if he could "swap in for a game". Keep an eye on potential player rifts at the tri-colours in coming weeks!

Away from the talk among the two teams, ex-Australian batsman Mark Waugh was more worried about the legitimacy of Labuschagne's grounding, saying that whilst the lead-up play was spot on, the grounding was questionable.

Given the lack of an NRL bunker style review system in Derbyshire, however, we're just going to have to stay with the on-field decision.
