sharpova and petrova were quite, they were grunting when they hit, like serena is famous for, but obviously not as loud! davenport and her oppononent (can't spell her name) didn't at all, and played very quietly!

Federer isnt actually doing as well as people think he is, he hasnt won any grand slams this year. If he doesnt even win wimbledon, then that would be pretty unlucky considering his exceptional talent, so i think the pressure really is on him. He's so boringly composed though, it wud be funny to see him break down.
Also, i cant believe how amazing Lopez is playing, i cant quite forgive him for beating Safin yet (aaaawwww why) but he seems really nice and cute too , he can definitely beat Lleyton

A little overly optimistic of Federer's downfall this year!

He's reached the semis of the Australian and French opens (lost in epics), and has won 3 other major tournaments (pacific life, nasdaq, and hamburg). He's still top of the "champions race" - a good measure of form for the year so far.

And he's awesome when he wants to be - sometimes i think he doesn't put the effort into matches when he can't be bothered it the early rounds!

PS. I hope hewitt loses, just because he looks like a bit of an overgrown ferret. [just to spoil the tone of what was a serious post ]

1. Sheridan
2. Thompson
3. Jenkins
4. O'Connell
5. Shaw
6. Jones
7. Moody
8. Corry

9. Cusiter
10. Hodgson
11. Williams
12. Henson
13. Greenwood
14. Thomas
15. Lewsey

Your all going to hate my halves pairing...but i think hodgson is really the only guy who has brought his form with him to NZ, and cusiter, although being a different sort of scrummie to peel, has played well and often with hodgson (More pressure will be brought around the scrums, which will help the forwards - and peel is weaker in this area). I can understand if you stick Peel and Wilko in there too tho....
If sheridan doesn't start he must atleast be on the bench - what an animal and a great impact player! Maybe titteral on the bench too...(versatility in support.etc., especially since mealamu isn't the biggest of hookers...)
Must have moody in the side though...his tackle frequency, versatility and unquestioning commitment will really help ensure quick ball and also slow down the more open style of NZ play. Also getting the ball back from drop outs is handy too, and the charge downs, and i could go on...
Think lewsey truly deserves to be at full back crashing through the lines - i would have Murphy on the bench, or maybe robinson, but both haven't been at their best in recent matches.
Back on the bench maybe - can play at the top level as a sub and will bring security if needed...
I would keep greenwood in the centres aswell - i know this is still seen as england "old guard" but he is so dependable in defence, and is the best OC we have with the current injuries.
After shaws performance today he's got to look in with a good shot of a bench atleast - he's a good jumper and gets in there with the nasty where grewcock left off...remember, if he gets cited, he can still close out the game knowing he is screwed for a coupla months, so put the body on the line! (maybe get some deserved BOD style revenge...)

Remember...after the show on saturday, double-teaming spears are fair game...i predict a very vertical future for some of nz's players - you fancy starting a book on who will be done first?
My moneys on tana, although mccaw being a valuable talisman also...

Thomas should make a good captain...he certainly has all the passion that you need to lead from the front. Although there is a suspicion that SCW is apologising to the welsh for his first test line-up!

I just cant wait for the game...or the team announcement now....
in true disney style:
"Why aren't you asleep?"
"I Can't, I'm too excited!"

Starting to respect your opinion now. You know your stuff. Agree with Moody choice, wanted him in my fantasy team, but knew he wouldn;t be picked. I admire his chasing of kicks.. he puts his body on the line every time!

Look forward to a great test on Saturday where hopefully we'll win.

aww! your just saying that because i picked more welshman really!
I was gutted when henson didn't get picked before - but maybe SCW wanted to knock him down a bit...McGeechan was stating he was a bit of a loner.etc., amongst the team - and thats because of his ego. maybe woodward sees himself in henson and wants to culture him in his own image!
It looks like corry might lose out on this one (according to the bbc...) with easterby at 6 and jones at 8 - sounds pretty good to me.
After seeing moody play with the lions in cardiff even when he wasn't on top form is truly astonishing...definately my favourite player in world rugby and would love to style my feable back-row perfomances upon him!
My fantasy team was quality for the game yesterday...williams, darcy, corry, bulloch, shaw - it doesn't get any better than that!

NZ are gonna destroy them in the other 2 tests just like they did in the 1st one.

Yes, Kim is a great player and seems so nice! I don't want Federer to win, it's becoming like F1, with Micheal Schumacher winning....boring!!!

Haha, Michael Schumacher has only won one race out of 9 this season and that was due to the fact that the Ferraris were the only top running team in the race! As much as I love Ferrari a race of 20 cars became a race of 6 cars and him winning that is not a true reflection of his form when the other 4 cars are Jordans and Minardis.

If only Federer could have an 'off-form' season like the Ferraris are having. I want Roddick to win Wimbledon! He really needs to win a Grand Slam! It's been a while since he got that last Grand Slam!

If the full 50 overs had still been batted, i doubt England would have won, but the Aussies recovered well from about 30 overs +, Symonds is a legend!
