    To all the Poms and Aussies, but especially the Poms on the Chookpen. Let's discuss the first test. Looks as though the Aussies will draw first blood... .

    Yessss! A great comeback by the Aussies after being 8-122. Top order is still a worry though.

        Washed out day 1 of second test. What a shame as It will probably ruin what was shaping up as an awesome test.

        whatdya reckon Mickie, any chance of a result in this one?

          Not sure what Mickie reckons but I will go out on a slight limb and back the Aussies to go 2 up, winning within the 4 days now allotted. The Aussies have a pretty impressive record at Lords. It's like our second 'Gabba' .

            I think the Aussies will get them again in the 2nd test.

                Need another big innings from Smith and Wade today and for the tail to wag . Watching the Bledisloe cup and can't help but wonder how Latrell would go .. he would have nailed those two missed penalties that's for sure !

                    Yes it was a great test innings. He certainly made the most of the nine lives our inept players gave him. That is one of the biggest chokes of all time.

                          Cmon mate, that was a million to one situation, can’t be all luck, that’s why sport is watched, to see things of greatness that you would struggle to see again. Sometimes we gotta focus on how good something was instead of downplaying it.

                            Of course it was good but you must admit we were terrible. You cant bowl a side out for 67 odd and then lose a test match.

                              I think the captaincy could of been much better when we had them 9 down, field positions were questionable, missed run outs and poor reviews. But, they bowled really well to get them to 9 down, and if you play that again, it would be very rare to see the same result.

                              it took a freak innings, 6s barely clearing the fielders and leach was unbreakable too, and sometimes that’s just all that can be said about it.

                              makes the next test a ripper now too.
