Oz greats Waugh, Perkins clash over sledging

Waugh, who once referred to sledging as ‘mental disintegration’, insisted that there was a role for the tactic, whereby an opponent is subject to a constant barrage of insults aimed at undermining his confidence.

“There is always a role for sledging,” Waugh said on Saturday. However, Perkins, the 1992 and 1996 Olympic gold medallist in the 1500m, said that the ploy was a sign of weakness on the part of the sledgers.
