Bodgey/Bo-Jay = pie chucker.

Roy Boy has set himself up with another test after his timely mauling. Bit of a hard choice at this stage for BOG/MOTM. Hussey saved our collective asses with that 1st innings century but Hayden with 60 odd and 130 odd will take some beating.

Punter definately spooked, and quickly becoming a victim of his own decision making. Before Edgbaston, he would have probably bowled on that first day pitch, and before Perth he would have batted probably till an hour or so before stumps.

Safas still no chance... (scrambling to touch wood)

Tony.T

Punter will never bowl again after Edgbaston. Nor will he ever again declare "too late".

Tony.T

Well, actually, he might ever again declare too late if we lose this one.

Now that de Villiers is out my bowels have loosened somewhat - but not enough to pass a solid stool. Kallis is the key to proper digestive ablutions.

Punter is a very rigid Captain as far as making decisions as the game progresses. He seems to set his mind before hand regardless of circumstance. He was chastened, as noted, in the UK and has made resolute changes since. He misread (though that is with alot of hindsight heroism) Perth and has succumbed here to a new reactionary logic.

Smith and Kallis. Once they're gone the Safas should fold (touch wood, fingers crossed).

pat

Oh yeah, and Gibbs. Can't forget Gibbs. (Boucher and Pollock as well). WTF. Punter's a fucking idiot.

Tony.T

Good riddance to Smuthy. He's a chance to score a motsa if he gets set. Be nice if Jack got out before stumps, too.

Tony.T

They bat deep, the Yarpies.

Never give a sucker an even break - these Sarfies are far from suckers.

Still dining on my fingernails.

Tony.T

BOWLED SHANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pat

Gibbs is bowled! Punter you're a fucking genius.

Erratic yes, insane yes, but brilliant - YES!

tONY

I'm with adsy, Yarpies can't do it - but there's going to be some nervous times between now & then. Punter did declare too early, which is making it increasingly obvious he's spooked by the media, particularly since the Ashes. Bad way to be - but if he gets away with this it might give him enough sand to tell them to fuck off.

pat

Tony, you must have missed my point - it's all over. We just won. I'm writing this from the toilet relaxed and pleased.

Tony.T

Sideshow Roy

He's my boy!

Tony.T

Ahem - we don't barrack here ...

It's ... umm ... good to see the back o' Jack. He's a fine player.

Tony.T

Sideshow for Border Medal.

pat

Maaaammy, how I luvs ya, how I luvs ya, my dear old maaaaammeeeeeeeee

nick

Worst fielding side - ever! Most boring side - ever! Let them have Tony back and they can fuck off back to Yarpland....

Tony.T

Mammy indeed. "Wayyy down upon the Stradbroke Island ... " Nick's right - what the green and gold blazes has happened to the Sorth Efrican fielding? They've given up about 300 runs in this test.

And how come Billy Lawry can't pick MacGilla's wrong'un, toppy or even his standard leggy? Fuck me, I can!

Tony.T

Bugger Tony Grieg and his dumb excuses for why the Orsies shouldn't appeal! The umpy should have just given The 'Cher out.

Tony.T

Gilchrist = hack! Drop him for that young Queenslander.

Why was Tony Grieg so excited that it was the first referal of the game? Big deal!

pat

What young Qldder? Haddins the man.

pat

I thought the umpires had the discretion to let play go on for an extra half hour if it looked like there might be a result. The procession was on - where's the extra 1/2 hour?

Peeeeeve of the day: That idiot O'Keefe when ashed to describe whether de Villiers was out said "Morgan Freeman was good in the shawshank redemption. hahaha hohoho sneeze" and left it at that. What a fucken idiot.

os

You blokes are dreaming if you think a Queenslander will replace Gilly. It'll be a Victorian.

Swervin' Mervin' is doing what he was put there to do. Replace Marto with some donkey called Hodge, replace Simmo with some donkey called Whyte, replace Warnie with ... oops, replace JL with some etc etc

Adam 1.0

I said South Africa would win the series. Final proof, as if it was needed, that I don't know fuck all about cricket.

Sri Lanka, however, will undoubtedly win the tri-series as they're under the leadership of my favourite player of all time Tom Moody.

SaggyGreenCricketCircus

Has anybody come to the conclusion that Nicky Bodgie bears a resemblence to a certain Wessels Johannes Cronje?

No? Perhaps it's just me indulging in the only conspiracy theory that matters: HANSIE LIVES!

os

Oh, and of course, Merv will also replace Hussey, M with Hussey, D.

tONY

The only answer to any perceived weakness in the middle order or the bowling dept is obvious - more West Aussies!

Tony.T

Kerry O'Keefe needs to be told that THIS is the home of Morgan Freeman.
