Ha but there's not many more down there to have a dig at, we have four nations here to fall out with not to mention the French.
Used to be fun when they had an annual footy competition but they stopped that (don't think it anything to do with the Scots celebrating by attempting to take Wembleys Goal posts home )
There again we pinched their Stone of Scone (sp)  for several centuries

yep one thing cricket does seem to do is breed a few characters

One of my favorites Freddie Truman had a few stories  grow up around him, including his answer to Raquel Welch when she remarked about the width of Freddie's posterior

Yeah, typical of him  right to the point. Does anyone remember his explanation to Parkinson as to why He'd never tour in Pakistan , he simply replied " the buggers cheat " and that was that , wouldn't get away with that today, anyway back to some work, BobH.

The over 70's (age) had a Test at the same time this month, and the Aussies lost that too!

Mind, the Aussies at least all had the same uniform on, unlike the Poms!
