I was talking only of the booers Rowdy. I totally agree it’s “indefensible”.

England have no moral high ground over ball tampering

How do you know Phantom? Certainly nothing as obvious.

It’s like road rage, merely a reflection of the perpetrators life.

You could say the disreputable Warner brought the game into repute!

It’s actually a relief, in a funny sort of way, to be Australian and have no right to moral high ground! We got busted, got over it, now clear sailing with clear conscience (maybe?). Let the rest of the cricketing world chat!

Status quo, we’ve just retained the ashes!

Fixing Australia's XI for the fifth Ashes Test

Very amusing Dane. Thanks, it made my morning coffee just that touch sweeter! I’ve known for some time now that Smith is indeed reverential, celestial, a god in his own right. The reason he swishes so violently after leaving a ball is to disturb the devils aura which surrounds a batsman so as to clear the way for the cricketing gods. His awkward boundaries are proof of the devils strength and Smiths ability to collect runs without fear of grace!

I like it Peter. He may be a bit small for a number 8 but he certainly has the work rate.

What did we really learn from the Samoa warm-up Test?

Yes, but don’t tell them that!

Did Australia really win the Ashes?

It’s all there fault, they sent all the ones they didn’t want to Australia 200 odd years ago…. Oh the consequences!

Did Australia really win the Ashes?

Well that’s the Cheika thing!

So you do agree with me OJ! :laughing:

What did we really learn from the Samoa warm-up Test?

Agree Ken. It seems to be a Cheika thing doesn’t it. For what it’s worth the best players should be selected in there best position. It’s simplist I know, however IMO our overall talent is down at the moment compared globally. We should be coached accordingly, simple.

Now that would be a sight!

Australia retain Ashes in a thriller

Or brilliant bowling….

Australia in box seat to retain Ashes today

Just like the aussies I’m not getting ahead of myself.

Australia dominate as England fall apart at Old Trafford

Thanks Ronan. For mine the biggest (second biggest) difference between the two teams is what’s between there heads. Australia are dealing with facts and simply playing in the moment and England appear to be basking in the sun that isn’t there and waiting for something to happen. It therefore cannot be underestimated the work of Waugh, Ponting and Langer for continually getting the players heads in the right frame.

Ahh Stirling suggestions RC! :laughing:

David Pocock to captain as Wallabies name team for Samoa clash

IMO Smith was just his normal fidgety self. “clearly mentally worried…”? You’d have to ask him Kane. Steve Smith is a freak and it was just another day of tormenting the poms. I enjoyed it!

On a dry Manchester pitch, Lyon holds key to Australia retaining the Ashes

AAC instead of TK….Phipps instead of Powell…and a gold watch for Genia,Kepu,TPN. Not surprised actually. Next coach please!

I hope England think they have ALL the momentum!

The Ashes: England vs Australia, fourth Test preview, prediction

I must agree Brett. This conundrum is a consequence of predominantly picking out of form experience over in form inexperience. If Cheika does select inexperienced players he needs to with combinations in mind. In this dangerous game against Samoa if it’s not the first xv then maybe it’s player combos like Powell CLL and Banks along with JOC and TK.As a priority the forwards need to bounce back from their last game hammering so minimal tinkering there.

Samoa Test: Are combinations more important than game time?

Google motorised scooter chase NZ. Its hilarious!

Crikey Geoff, now I’m really pussed off! I can never eat mint sauce again. However the only kiwi I want near our rugby is that bloke on the motorised scooter cleverly evading the kiwi coppers! He could spot a gap instantly and kept the authorities confounded for hours.
