    Jesus Christ, you must be tiny!

    Went to see the osteopath yesterday; my crap technique (I've been told time and again to fix it so it's nobody's fault but my own) has been making my long-standing shoulder injury worse over the last year so the joint is now very unstable. I have to switch sides (yay, a whole new set of blisters) or bin the sweep oar for a while and scull (hmm, sculling on the Cam in winter, no thanks).
    Ah the wonders of college rowing: its the quality coaching that sets it apart from the rest of the rowing world.... :rolleyes:

    Who wins the toss will decide it. Unless ponting decides to hand us the advantage like he did at Edgbaston.

    The teams are essentially equally matched as the ozzies are probably in worse form but have enough resilience that they can get out of trouble as we have seen in the last two tests.

    we had millward when we got creamed them times...

    lol. you really cant wait can you???

    Those games were at the start of his reign. I guess he needed a bit of time to get the team how he wanted it. I still dont think you will make the play-offs though.

    How can you tell im excited.

    there are quite a few drawbacks for the aussies. The main thing is that ponting isnt used to shifting from plan A to plan B and then to plan C. He has been so used to winning that he just cannot think of an efficient back up plan to curb the flamboyant eng side. The english side is also young and full of effervescence. they play their heart out and give it their best and these are a bunch of cricketers who are enjoying the sunshine. Whereas the aussies...they've gone past their heydays. These are guys who have won so much that they're used to it now. And also u can see them...shoulders drooping and their face sagging. Its like they await the inevitable. But they are a classy team no doubt about that...and an injured tiger will most likely rebound back than just give up. i have a feeling the aus will bounce back...but then england look to have done their homework. John Buchanan would do better to accept his fault than go around giving statements that they've handled pieterson and flintoff. The entire english side would have read that and had a good laugh over it! So did i!

    Actually, we have a bloody awesome coach (ex CUBC, ex Canadian National coach). Evil, but very good. He spotted what I was doing wrong with my shoulder on the first outing he coached me in. If I concentrate then I can get it right, but I still have a tendency to forget that sort of thing when racing; my brain can't cope with that level of thinking!

    Wigan have improved since Millward took over. You need to beat both Leeds and Saints to make the play-offs though. Good luck to that.

    Cant believe the result against Widnes and the best bit was relegating them. Only one more game to play without Andrew Johns!!!!!!
    Considering saints' recent record at the 'stade de la crust' don't count against wigan winning this one.... again!

    Even though I am confident about this one.... I have been on all ten previous visits to the pie dome aswell, but it always turns out that saints' "superstars" don't have the bottle to beat the much hungrier wigan 'kids' at the JJB...... UNFORTUNATELY!!!!!!!!!

    only 20 press ups a day, i used to do 100 but that soon got boring ( not all in 1 block by the way, that would be quite impressive! in 4 blocks of 25) but didn't do much, it didn't make my arms much bigger just chest and shoulders.

    he was a cox...
