    Pom's already getting desperate.

    http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/sto...6-2882,00.html

    Little Lord Fontleroy suddenly thinks he's thuggish ruggish? He'd drop a deuce in his tighty whities and be hiding behind Ian Bell if fisti-cuffs were to erupt.

    Flintoff suddenly has the cajones to get a tattoo bigger than a 10 pence piece as he approaches 30 & he's held up as some sort of stud?

    Pathetic. Aus win, again.

    Borcich has a rival for most inadequate poster. Almost as poor as that article he's linked to.

    Strauss has nothing on Leon Pryce, either.

    Having heard Strauss speak many times, I find that difficult to believe. It is about the most un-Strauss thing that he could possibly same.

    I love the way the paper responds to supposedly immature comments from England by basically saying the exact same thing about Australia.

    The idiots are once again starting to come out of the woodwork now the Ashes is on.

    Quite. Langer might be a black belt in Origami or whatever, but a good big 'un will always beat a good little 'un.

    I think only Hayden or McGrath would give Fred a run for his money from the current team, although I'd reckon Symonds is fairly butch too.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    KP, Harmison, Freddie and Mahmood are all well over 6 foot.

    Didn't Ponting famously belt a Union player while on the sauce at a pub once?

    Even more famously got belted by a tranny during his "portrait of the artist as a young piss-artist" phase tho.

    Indeed, but Ponting strikes me as the sort who wouldn't be averse to throwing hands, even now. I don't see McGrath as particularly intimidating though. Like Stuart Clark, he's big but doesn't seem the fighting type.

    I'd agree with Clark, he was studying finance before he went full-time as a cricketer I think & one rarely finds rock-hard accountants. I reckon Glen could handle himself tho, country NSW boy, grew up wrestling 'roos, probly...

    Maybe it's the permanant grin and the attitude, but I just don't see Glenn as all that aggressive. I don't see Harmison that way either, but maybe that's just because he seems like such a weakling when he's getting smashed around.

    Flintoff would happily smash your head into the pavement though, and I think Simon Jones and KP would be fighters too. Geraint and Giles not so much.

    For Australia, definitely Hayden and Ponting, and then you'd be looking at Symonds and perhaps Langer. A lot of the guys in the current team don't seem that hard though, like Clarke, Watson, Martyn, Hussey and Gilchrist. You'd want to draft in the likes of Bichel and Tait for your fighting XI.

    Monty might be able to strangle you with his big hands, whereas Giles would sort of Massage you.
