    Siddle is ****. Haddin is still better than Paine.

    Johnson is too all over the place for mine. 
    Callum Ferguson cant be far away from playing test cricket either. 
    If you put Watson down the order you will get more from his bowling. 
    Katich should be the second spinner. 
    Krejza bowled one of the best spells from a spinner in a long while in the one-dayer the other day. 

    This is what will play though

    Katich
    Watson
    Ponting
    Clarke
    Hussey
    North
    Haddin
    Johnson
    Hauritz
    Hilfenhaus
    Bollinger

    Harris 12th man

    As sure as Des names the same 17 every week.

    Would love to see North make way for a younger guy, not fussed whether it is Smith, Khawaja or Ferguson...just give one of them a crack. Don't know what the solution to Johnson is, he is so erratic that it has a destabilising effect on the rest of the attack I reckon, you just never know whether he is going to be "on" or not. Watson has been good, probably our best over the last 12 months, but you've got to wonder about the workload when combined with opening the batting. I'm hoping Hilfy has a good domestic summer this year, but our attack looks shaky you must admit.

    I am really concerned that we are going to lose this Ashes series at home, which will be a low point of Australian cricket over the last 30 years. But it could be the catalyst for the shake up we need. Might be the swansong for Huss, North and even Punter.

    How anyone can still have Hussey in the side bamboozles me.

    why was I ever worried about the ashes again? lol

    White is a class bowler and has been working with kumble when he decides the time is right to bowl again he will get a bag of wickets! not only should he be in the team he should just about be skipper in my opinion!

    Interesting reading some comments from Lillie and one of our former guys. Can't remember who. Agrueing about who had the better bowling attack. Obvious who one is going to say depending on where there from but least Lillie admitted we had the better spin options. Can't exactly come out and say Hauritz is better then Swann. I think i'm better then Nathan. Be a lot more worried if they actaully chose someone who can bowl.

    Watching the NSW V Tassie game at the SCG last week I thought the two Tassie boys in Jason krejza and Xavier Doherty bowled very well. I know Doherty got called upto the one day squad. Good move

    Krejza would be there if Ponting had some balls.

    At least he turns the ball.

    Can't believe you blokes are talking about the Ashes with the NZ v India test matches coming up !!

    A few records could go, Sri Lanka's 952/6 could come under severe threat from the Indians.

    Only bright spot being that our young gun Williamson should make the side batting at 6

    Mate I'd love to play with big Jesse, he's an old style player, turns up, hits the ball hard, bowls a few overs and gets on the cans after the game.

    Dont think he's much of a fan of the fitness training though.

    We were spinning a few yarns about him on Saturday

    1 of the lads has just come over from Brisbane, and was bowling in the nets to Ryder and Vettori who were told they needed to score 45 from 6 overs, he bowled a full ball a foot outside off and it went sailing away over mid wicket for 6. After he finished batting, they asked him to bowl 4 overs to the other batsman. "Na, I don't think so eh" was the response haha

    Another fella played against him about 4-5 years ago at a National club comp. Big Jesse was on the cans before he batted, came out and hit a quick 40, decided he'd had enough, so hit one straight to cover and called yes, went back to his seat and got back on it haha
