    Aussies get relationship counselling

    Apparently an important part of the Aussie's Ashes defence boot-camp is to make their players have relationship counselling with their wives/girlfriends.

    Warney would have loved that.

    Isn't this a rather disingenious way of putting it?

    Yeah not sure bringing the spouses along equals counselling, though no doubt this'll be the first thing brought up if we lose the Ashes. Doesn't really bother me but at the same time doesn't make a lot of sense from a team bonding point of view. The last training camp was lauded for bringing the team together and with a new side like this one you'd think that's even more important and I imagine the more time spent with wives, the less time spent together as a group. That said, we definitely don't want to see any more Lee style breakdowns so it's good CA are focusing on the issue.

    Of course! But then I originally read about it in the Sun! To be fair, the Australian paper says 'sessions run by relationship experts' rather than counselling.

    Well the link you provided to the Guardian article doesn't even remotely suggest to use the word "counselling". If you've read something that does feature it, wouldn't it have been an idea to link to that article? Else it looks like you're sensationalising things, which is generally the job of the media rather than the CW poster.

    I didn't want to link to the Sun with all it's naked ladies adverts.

    It's all a bit unfair really. There's never proper equality with topless men as well as ladies.

    Topless men are far more frequent than topless women because it's not taboo!

    Yeah, I was hyper-bored last night and so I read through some random threads from 06 that I had subscribed to

    Reminds me of the old joke,

    What's the Australian definition of foreplay?

    "Brace yourself, Shelia"
    Cricket Web's current Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "Ben Stokes, that most unlikely saint, worked the second of the two miracles he needs for his canonisation." - The Guardian's Andy Bell on the England all-rounder's Headingley ton
