Well it's great to see the new and old ABs gel and really bring it for 80 but dear god I hope the return fixture is a nail biting classic. The game needs it.

You reckon that travelling from Australia to NZ will impact the Springboks?
Potentially. 7 1/2 hour flights and 4-5 hours difference. All adds up. Many crumbs make a sandwich.

Re: Jimmy Anderson: "100% best fast bowler ever"

Whilst the ICC rankings are interesting they do only refectory the highest ppoint someone got in their career not the quality of the career overall. Case in point is Hadllee whose career got better and better , much like Anderson. A fairer system would be to loom at the CPI ratings for the bowlers. ...

Re: Jimmy Anderson: "100% best fast bowler ever"

Jimmy Anderson can certainly be rated as one of England's finest test bowlers. And a master of the Duke ball. However away from home and English conditions he has 149 wickets at 35.36. That's hardly world class. Hadlee, for example took 230 wickets away from home at 21.72 Lillee averaged 24.28 away ...

Re: All Blacks vs Argentina: MATCH THREAD: New Plymouth: Sep

Enjoyed that test match. Both teams came to play and it ebbed and flowed nicely. However the ABs turned on the afterburners when Barrett went to the bin and the Argies struggled to stay in it. A good test for. Number of young ABs under pressure so a good experience for them. Should be an interesting...

Machete order.

A New Hope
Empire Strikes Back
Attack of the Clones
Revenge of the Sith
Return of the Jedi

So cut of Phantom Menace as it's largely irrelevant and the Machete order preserves all the twist and makes one even better.
