    World Cup by a MILE!!!

    Simon and I spoke about this a week or so ago... We both agreed we would let England win the Ashes every time if we were to win the WC...

    Test cricket is certainly more significant here too, but The Ashes is only England, after all.

    Well if it was a toss up between us winning the WC or the next Ashes series, I will take the Ashes.

    But tbh we are going too win them both
    You know it makes sense.

    The ashes has only gotten really exciting during the last series, so prior to that i would say Cricket World Cup, Football WC then the ashes. But currently with the quality of the last ashes & anticipation for the next one i'd say Ashes, cricket WC, football WC...

    I don't see myself screaming as loudly or for as long as I did when Kasper got out, no matter how ridiculous our WC final win is. Extending the screaming scale to Old Trafford last January, it's Ashes > ECFC > Football WC >>>>>>>>>>> Cricket WC.

    NZ will win both in the next 10 years...

    I would prefer seeing the All Whites get to the world cup, than the All Blacks winning the rugby world cup...

    Quite disappointed here. The Ashes are the only things that matter.

    yeh that was the point we were making, the Ashes for the next 100 years would easily be traded for one WC title.

    As long as we beat the English in something, it doesn't matter
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
