A sticky dicky cracker from the NT News

When scandal erupted around the Australian cricket team’s cheating admissions over the weekend, only one question mattered: What will the NT News say about it on Monday?

Surely, the ball-tampering puns available to combine with the visual of Cameron Bancroft hiding his yellow stickytape in his underwear would create some delicious possibilities.

Or would they offer a callback on the classic (and Walkley Award winning – yes, really) “Why I stuck a cracker up my clacker“?

And yup, that’s the way they went.

And it’s not even the first time they’ve gone back to the greatest hits catalogue. Remember the Gyngell-Packer brawl?

Happy days…
