    McGrath is a cock.

    One of the all time greats, but a cock.

    Totally agree he said at the start of the series Aus would win 5-0 then after cardiff 4-0. Time for some humble pie.

    Ha.

    It looks likely that England (&Wales) will have 3 SA's in the team going on tour over there this winter.

    I see that England have lined up another SA and West Indian that qualify for the team soon as well :)

    And all this after discarding the best Irish players for a generation.

    One of the Irish lads is still in the 1 day squad no? I wouldn't be surprised to see Joyce get a call up again soon after the season he's had.

    Did Eoin Morgan make the one day squad?
    I think he got a couple of twenty twenty games earleier in the season but didn't particularly excell.

    Ed Joyce did blow his last chance big time but that shouldn't exclude him from getting another go based on previous selection policy where some players seemed to have had numerous opportunities to prove themselves.

    Do you have any friends who have sky? I've been using my mate's sky player login for months now without any problems.

    my bros got it.... he aint a home.... fuck it!

    TMS will have to do
    [/quote]

    You misunderstood him I think mate. Get your bro to sign up for Skyplayer online (he prob has already, it's free to sky subscribers). He can then give the log in details to you, go on the sky player site, download the player & you use it with his log in details.

    Provided your brother doesnt stream live tv at the same time as you it'll work perfectly, it doesnt matter what IP it's used from.

    Neither team should feel overly confident going into this and I reckon it will be a close, exciting series but featuring 2 teams playing below their best. I reckon it will finish 2-1 either way with maybe England shading it due to home advantage.
    [/quote]

    Considering I know fuck-all about cricket I am quite happy with this prediction. It was a hugely entertaining series contested by 2 average teams and in the end home advantage probably swung it England's way.

    i hate all this we have SA folk in our team ETC ETC. It was like all the fuss made over Peterson being captain when we have had other SA born players captaining us before. Trott was born in SA but both his parents are English, so he is english. If your English parents are in he forces and you are born in Germany you are not German are you.

    Its not like the 80s where SA players had to play for us as they were banned. All sports leverage rules for getting other players in form abroad, fuck me Rugby and Athletics are worse as is football (brazilians for hire).

    Well done England, loved it even though when I went to the OVal on Thursday it actually turned out the be the worst day of the match

    SA on tour will be very tough, drop Collingwood from squad and of course Harmisson and play this 11.

    I think if Freddie hadn't run out Ponting with that great throw, the Aussies might have done it! They were looking worryingly comfortable.
