Oh, hockey... that game the girls used to play? Chukka-dukka-wukka-Fu... anyway, used to love watching the 'gels' doing that.

I'm with you Jools re hockey. My youngest daughter started playing it 5 years ago when she was 14; now in the Western Australian Diamonds (WA) senior team. Like all the other dads, you have to drive your girl there so I have seen a lot of (high level) hockey since Sophie started goaklkeeping.

WA is the home base of AIS hockey for the men (Kookaburras) and the women (Hockeyroos), so we are treated by being able to wander into the hockey stadium (no charge), and watching the best players in the country every week.  It's an exciting game to watch.

My pet sport is squash. I started playing socially at the age of 21, to get fit for riding enduros. The squash continued long after the enduros ceased! I have been playing for the last 38 years, and relying on cunning to make up for the loss of speed.

As for cricket; ain't it grand! One of the two great legacies from our British heritage; the other one (arguably) the Westminster parliamentary system.

Like Richard I like squash ,played until 18 mths ago when the knee let go , as a youff I used to lacross , they couldn't get enough volunteers (idiots ) from the brothers Gramma school to make a team so I became a pupil for Saturdays only ! Great game for maiming people, the ball is bloody heavy ,solid rubber and that sure teaches you not to take your eye of it ! and you never, never hit an opponent with the cross (oh yeah ) sometimes the field used to look like the somme on a bad day ,all good fun . I seem to remember that the Canadian Indians started the game and used a solid hickory ball ,that would have been erm ...interesting, Bob.

It's clear the dastardly poms must have taken advantage of our clean fresh youthful cricket team.
By plying them with strong drink and introducing them to wicked women, they have removed their competitive edge.
What to do??
