    I think we need a proper Sports thread coming into the summer of Cricket and European Rugby tour.

    Looks like old Vettori will be OK for the first test.

    OK i'd just like to state that where ever we are, no matter what we are doing at 12:00pm tomorrow we make sure that we watch the first session (at least) of the first test against Aussie tomorrow!

    Gotta support our boys :D

    BTW: I feel sorry for you Buzz [face_plain]

    You should feel sorry for me.

    My last job was programming binary load lifters ... opps! I mean working for a sports organisation. I was there for about eight years, surrounded by "sports-nuts" - and I've never liked sport and I hated school PE.

    Nash, Vettori and Cairns in the bowling lineup. I hope they can all stay in one piece for the match (and season!)...

    Looks like it will be a draw, which is just fine for us I think. Too bad about the weather.

    We should draw...
    We might lose...
    We might win...
    We might not...

    2/ hits a 6 off the first ball of the match!
