Re: Cricket: Australia vs India TEST SERIES

Geez Aussie posters whining because the 'neutrals' are enjoying their cricket team getting beaten :lol: Just when you think Australian sports and their fans can't shame their glorious past any further they always surprise you. For the neutrals it is a gift that just keeps giving.

Re: NZ is the ICC no.1 ranked test team

Aussies might have the best bowling attack in the world but their batting has been shit and their fielding has been sloppy. They are not as good as past Aussie teams, I fact I’d say this is the worst Aussie team I have seen in a while. I wouldn’t be so quick to write off the Black Caps in a one off...

If Beauden has another season like this one we might be talking about him being allowed out his contract to go to easy rugby at the end of next season. His form has been worse than average.

It has probably secured us the title so it is the first step in the right direction by the new coaching panel. Put the Chiefs style rugby away and ground them down for the win the bonus point and hopefully the trophy. Very England like.

Judging by Jordie now doing it it is a tactic from our amazing coaching brains trust. It is keeping the Argies pinned deep in their own half and out of penalty kicking range for Sanchez I suppose.

Beauden Barrett this season has been his worst in black by some distance. After as average Super effort. Seems to have lost his speed, acceleration off the mark that make up for his bad option taking and poor passing. Previous seasons Barrett would have scored that try off the ALB break.
