    haha, yer my only relax was that I was that busy after that post I couldn't keep tabs rest of the day lol....
    So was good to hear the results once I got in the car - yes I was relaxed then.
    2nil - not a bad start - but I'm still not convinced were ok, being a avid sports person it ain't over till the final whistle, once we have the 3rd then I'll be relaxed !

    Possibly.
    I can’t stand smith but he’s certainly got all the skills.

    I like Smith
    didnt like Clark as captain
    it was that it was all about him, not the team, he obviously spells team with a I

    Smith just has one of those heads that you just wanna punch.

    Cannot deny his skill though.

    Aussie will be racing the weather in this one I think. They almost need to declare early and try and knock over the poms today or tomorrow

    I like Smith a lot better than either Ponting or Clarke.

    Both Ponting and Clarke were handed teams that could do no wrong, but the players morale was just shocking - they didn't look like mates, and they just fell into cliques.

    Clarke is a Shire Boy (played Juniours for Sutherland) and just seems more down to earth given that we talk about him in the same breath as Bradman.

    I don't think Warner is a very good Vice Captain though - I think he needs to concentrate on his batting and let someone else take that helm.

    Well 127runs doesn't sound like much with 6wickets in hand to get in a full day.
    Seriously you think you could hold out and get a draw from this in the Poms eyes.
    If we get a couple of early wickets then it will be a mountain too high.
    We got to go hard/aggressive attacking field.

    As for Captains - its always hard to get the perfect candidate as we had been fortunate to have during the strong years.
    Starting with AB captain angry lol 9could you blame him), a ordinary team but he carried them brilliantly and what a foundation laid.
    Having known Taylor I never really warmed up to the Fujitsu guy But I can't deny his record and what a team.
    SWaugh was my pref everyday of the week.
    Gilly had a short tenure but you can't not admire his period.
    Ponting, yer never liked him much,something about him not very appealing but again a great record and obviously with the team around him.
    Clarke, DH.....Pax ? talking about him in the same breath as Don ??
    Smith, a huge change over in personnel, he's led from the front a number of times which is expected from our Captain.
    Had some failures offshore but who didn't most times in the past.
    Maturing.
