    Funny that when the Aussies start to struggle they then decide to point out others who have players born from elsewhere.

    I meant the other way, maybe not so much in cricket and i haven't bothered to dig out names but the Aussies are masters at taking people from other counties.

    "Maybe not so much in cricket" translates to "I've got nothing".

    I cannot be bothered to make up a list, I don't have the time and i'd need a long time. All I care about is the Ashes this year, its going to be great.

    Good luck with all this Ben, I noticed an English cricketer said they were the ManU of cricket, an odd comment when Chelsea is winning everything don't you think?

    I suspect you may regret this thread after the ashes, its over here this time remember.

    I will regret things no matter what the result. If we lose then obviously its the same old crap. If we win people wll make up excuses. (If I believe what happened in the 2003 great rugby world cup only one man played the game).

    Didn't hear the Man u comment but yes rather strange. The boys should be  confident however no reason not to be this is our best chance in a long time to win over here.
    The thread was of course a bit of a joke, both sides should be higher up there where we both are. The Aussies are much better then 5th obviously

    Ok, point. Perhaps I should have said Chelsea are winning much more then Man U.

    Still, the point someone highlighted to me was that the new system of the top 4 playing each other in tests and the the next 4 playing each other comes in soon, this would mean that we are stuck in the lower group. I wonder what that means for the ashes.

    doubt it Gronk, the points we are defending this summer are from last time they were here, we won 5 - 0 last time, so if we dont repeat that we will actually go further backwards
