Ashes umpires have been told to "stiffen up their act" after tensions mounted in the first Test between England and Australia in Brisbane.

Home captain Michael Clarke was fined for using an obscenity while warning James Anderson to expect a broken arm.

Former Australia wicketkeeper Ian Healy said: "Umpires are fairly insipid and don't take on their responsibilities anywhere near enough.

"Maybe it's time they stiffen up their act."

Healy, who played 119 Tests for Australia between 1988 and 1999, feels that umpires must take more of an active role in calming potential spats.
