"It's A Joke": Jeff Thomson Weighs In On The Ball Tampering Scandal Getty

The last 48 hours has seen the extraordinary fall-out from Australian cricket captain Steve Smith and teammate Cameron Bancroft's confession to cheating.

This morning, as Smith is banned for the fourth Test of the South Africa tour and Bancroft is handed a hefty fine, cricketing legend Jeff Thomson joined The Big Breakfast with Marto, Robin and the Moonman to have his say.

"It's embarrassing, that's what I say. This is a joke," Thommo said on Monday morning.

"They're like spoiled brats. If it doesn't go their way, it doesn't go their way, they can't cop it."

But when the Moonman put to Thommo that this kind of behaviour had been going on for years, Thommo was having none of it.

"Mate I can't remember ever pulling this. I'm serious," he said. "The game meant everything and that's what it should do to these blokes. 

"They've forgotten what the game's all about."

Listen to Thommo's full chat with The Big Breakfast with Marto, Robin and The Moonman below:
