Re: AFL 2020

Apart from the close scores the overall standard of AFL has slumped to an all time low. Its like watching under 11 footy with about 30 players all within a kick of the ball. So true, have not watched one entire game of AFL this season, actually sat and watched the second half of the Legs and the Ro...

GIAE - how do you feel about League One clubs voting to finish the season as it stood prior to Covid-19 shutdown?

They finished 3rd after the group stage. They were 1-1 v Australia in the tournament. Lost to Sri Lanka and Pakistan who were both poor in the tournament. Tied NZ in the final and only won on an obscure countback rule. India were probably the best team in the tournament until the semi final when the...

Re: Women's T20 World Cup

If you want to use luck as any guide, look at the men's last ODI World Cup final. Or does the "won under the rules of the comp" (ref D/L) not matter now? It didn't seem to matter to all the aussies who are still crying about us winning. Australia won under the competition rules, that's a ...

2019 Champions & Promotion

Given we're 2 weeks from the end of the season (not including Cup) who has secured promotion and who has won their leagues?

- Modbury have won Sunday Div 4A
- Athelstone have won Sunday Div 4B
- Para Hills have won Sunday Div 3B

- Croatia have sealed promotion in Sunday Div 3A

Australia was one wicket away from retaining the Ashes and now England have all the momentum and should be favourites to win the series.

Re: Ashes 2019

Very shite batting from Australia - the art of fighting for your wicket is now virtually dead thanks to t20 cricket. The bowling was very good but simply no fight or ability to properly defend and leave balls is totally on show. Expecting a fine day today and England to be about 4/300 as no chance w...

Seriously people need to get over the booing.
We've booed Broad every time he's batted in Oz for the last 2 tours and it's 'just banter' from the crowd.
They're allowed to do it.
Archer is going to get booed when he next comes to Oz and no doubt we'll justify it with some garbage

England won it through the rules and regulations, an asterisk is often against a team that wins a football comp on penalties - no different.
