    Yep. Coz Katich and Hughes just haven't looked the goods with the ball moving around in SA, have they?

    I think he means for Australia to fail, Cam. Hate that Richo is starting to become wittier.

    Nah, I've just been wanting a b****-slapping from Matt for a fair while, truth be told.

    BTW, less of the Richo-ing from you. You're not the idiot Camel56 types (and you'll actually remember 'em).

    there's a few hilfy haters areound here, i fully rate him, but yes, raw, swings it at good pace, accurate, goes in hard all day, but he is only 2 tests in, siddle looked a little raw after 2 tests as well.

    he needs to do a little more when the ball gets old i feel.

    i'd also like to see a little more of bollinger, he's been running through state batsmen for years.

    and to clarify, lee probably should have been the best bowler in the world at some point in time, but wasn't, and i don't count a handful of good tests as putting him in the upper echelon, that was probably simply what he should have been doing all along. on that basis paul reiffel was the best bowler in the world in '93

    It's pasag you're talking to though - the man who rates debuting Siddle ahead of Bollinger in India, and not dropping Johnson for Bollinger in the West Indies, as mistakes almost of the same magnitude as dropping Clark for White.

    Personally though I agree with him in this instance: Bollinger is significantly better than Hilf.

    Well Gelman's basically the leader of the Bollinger fan club and he's Victorian, so there goes your theory.

    but bollinger is from sydney so the theory can still stand, but he's bald and doesn't have blonde hair, not even the advanced hair hat was blonde, someone should have told him

    Nah, it's all just a ruse; he actually lives in Bondi. We just thought it'd be a good idea to have a fake Victorian around so we could pull the old "Nah, we're not biased - look, a Victorian agrees!" in times of need.

    Since when did NSW-men give a crap about what anyone else thinks? ****ing soft. Disgrace to your convict heritage.
