    I'm sure if this site was a-buzzing with South Africans and thus there was endless discussion of the series, it would indeed.

    However, there are more posters on here with an interest in England and Australia than any other team - and Australia's tour to England is longer than almost any other tour in this day-and-age. Thus, a separate forum is neccessary.
