Did Stone go on the SL tour? I think he did but didn't feature or got injured; I forget. He's supposed to be quick so it would be nice if he got some game time and stayed fit.

NZ are notorious moaners and bleaters. No idea where this international image that they are nice guys comes from. They are arrogant as fuck and suffer from major small country syndrome. You never hear the end of it and there's always one absurd reason or another why they lose in every sport. When things go their way, they seldom show humility. Their commentators are the worst.

They still kick up a fuss about 95 and 07 rugby World cups.

Got further than the cheating Aussies in the WC didn't they?

And they are absolutely immense at Rugby.

Huge winning record, and also have a winning % against every team they have ever played.

Australia's sporting prowess in general seems to have gone to shit. Used to dominate in loads of sports and at the Olympics when I was younger. Shite now.

T20 silly season has started. Essex reduced to 15 overs have scored 224 runs with their opener smashing 129 including 14 6s

Surrey (and England) bowler Tom Curren goes for 63 runs in 3 overs

I have Lancs to win T20 blast for a big £win final leg of a treble. Not happy they were rained off against Leicestershire as that was a game they really should have been winning!

Roses match in Yorkshire on Thursday.

Now that the thrill of the WC has settled a bit, I've been wondering whether Aggers' opinion of young Joffra's effect on the team's morale has changed?

194-5....

England are effectively 72-5

Are Ireland back as favorites now?


226 - for 6

England lead Ireland by 104 runs with 4 wickets remaining

Ireland have got to be favourites to win this game now

I thought a lead of 150 would be enough so I'm pretty confident of victory now.

I'm slightly less certain tbh although from memory only about 4 or 5 test teams have ever scored more than 175 odd to win at Lords in the 4th innings.

Not a chance - we have a glorious history of near misses in sport and this will add to that list
