When you say Not a lot of choices Brett I think my first choice of opener would have been Stephen Fleming and they brought in Ross Taylor at no 5…..but I do agree with choice of Bond and Boult
Would have been a great combination of pace and swing and guile from Vettori

The All Time XI For All Time: New Zealand

It’s hoped Tony that they Might take JFMG as a substitute in case of injury
It has been unofficially suggested… wait and see
It’s T20 cricket and they still take suspect players ..Warner with his hand and Stoinis with form and then two keepers are not necessary

Your right Billy but if it was two struggling clubs with a smaller supporter base then I wouldn’t mind

With or without Weitering, the Saints need to splurge to stay relevant. Here's who they should chase

RT, I’m not looking to make North and someone a powerhouse but merely trying to think how the AFL can overcome an ongoing ignominious situation of a club being non competitive in this league.
What Don suggested initially , and I agreed with, would be a solution….merging
It would be best , if it happened, to merge with a fellow cellar dweller
Pipe dream ?

I am with you on that solution Don. Initially I was thinking that North could lose their licence but to merge would seem a good solution to their dismal performances over the last 2-3 years… or longer.
Would bring it back to 18 teams
But I guess the AFL may be reluctant to even consider it notwithstanding the precedent of South Melbourne and Fitzroy
But it’s a good thought

As I have said on here Macca the Saints lack the midfield depth of other teams
Steele soldiers on under an injury but with more help I think their fwds would cap of their work
But only my thoughts

Except for De Koning

I for one..

Not a mistake you would expect from Tim… a real schoolboy mistake

Quiet so… 😂

The true inventor of Bazball was born 150 years ago, and his records are still utterly bonkers

Puritan? Silly? Don’t be rude Don…Yes, you see players curse when they miss but not loud or directed toward the umpire….The AFL condoned the penalty for the language used.
Now I understand what they mean when they say a Purple Haze…

Hope so

Ok. But my pont of using vulgar languages stands and earns a penalty so he had him self to.blame….
Must have been.loud for his team mates having to restrain
Him

Thanks All Day . your research , as I’ve said, is amazing. The articles on people we don’t think about or have heard about make for great reading.
Certainly a master blaster cricketer

I think Crows , even without Worrell, can stifle Pies … but not Eagles. Haven’t got the cattle
Incredible. 28 missed opportunities last week from Freo. Pretty sad and to then think it’s coming back quickly 28 times…

The Roar's AFL expert tips and predictions, Round 10: Is this the week the tipping nightmare ends at last?

Macca I said to my son this morning … he’s an ardent Blues supporter…I blame my trip to Princess Park for my hamstring problem he wasn’t that impressed with my humour.
I’m not convinced on Fantasia as yet…. no other option?
I do believe that the Blues have to get it in quickly to negate Swans smothering defence
And possibly play someone on Blakey to negate his damaging disposal from the backline…like Kennedy or Hewitt ?
Just my thoughts
But for you and my son fingers are crossed

Yes, I understand it’s not your point Don but the my point still stands
The player in question did vent his feelings over the decision and was always going to be pinged
But , not arguing with you sir just saying one decision was wrong and the other correct

Makes for interesting reading Wikipetia. And I nearly put Wikipedia. You have as much info as they probably have 😂
But good response on the article..appreciate it

England need rejig with Ashes on horizon so now is right time for Anderson to retire one of the greatest of all time

If they had not paid the mark then there would be no penalty but as it was paid the penalty was clearly stupidity on the part of the Freo Backman for expressing his discontent over the touched ball to the umpire …. something you cannot do in any grade.
It all looked like Freo being hard done by but the penalty had to be applied
The umps were just at fault for not viewing the replay of the mark …. but would they ??

There’s always someone Rowdy. This version of a Con hasn’t got anything better to while away his lonely hours

How the AFL bringing back Origin could fix the league's biggest inequality - and why now is the perfect time

Very good point Dibbs. Could be a great build up to the Final
But made up from clubs not competing in the Grand Final

I found it amazing when I read it that they went to Geelong
