    I was waiting for someone to say this. But i remind you dawg, that in SA 04/05 the pitches where very flat ,nothing like what AUS had this year. The only surface in that series that was bowler friendly was in Jo'Burg when Hoggard took 7 & that was MAINLY due to the fact the the conditions became overcast due to rain interruptions during that test.

    The pitches in SA this year had bounce & pace. Thats what Harmo trives on, even though he doesn't pitch it up as often has needed. Johnson & Siddle especially got wickets due to lifting deliveries (cant remember any specifics ATM). The surfaces this winter are potentially the most helpful conditons Harmo could get on any tour in his career, so i have big hopes if he doesn't retire.

    Discernible examples Aussie or I call revisionism. The only wicket which was quick in the series was Durban day two, which was rapid. The Cape Town test was played on concrete and anyone who dropped short there was dispatched. Harmy would have lasted all of five overs on that.

    Never heard anyone in Manchester talk like that.

    Mind you I've never heard anyone use most of the words Aussie uses.

    Well yea i was refering to mainly what occured in Jo'Burg & Durban instead of CT.

    Looking at ENG fixtures for the tour, tests are in Centurion, Durban, CT & PE. Centurion & CP are likely to flat i guees. Whats P.E like these days?

    Well yes, my bad for not being clearer. I prematurely presumed everyone would equate the idea of having a 90 mph bowler with quality & not just for the sake of it.

    Ha, no yo. The meaning is not literal.

    If you f*cking your wife/gf & before you stick it. You see the menstral blood, i presume you would say WTF, yuck, bitch get out of the room etc etc right?

    In Jamaican dialect the menstral blood is called rass & the women use a cloth (usually tamponds) to clean themselves, so comes the term rassclath.

    So in everyday language that term has been elaborated for use in any situation as an expression of surprise, distgust, frustration. This is what the urban dicsh*tandberry doesn't tell you.

    Its just a cultural thing, no need to dwell on it..

    PE is lively, swing and seam aplenty and South Africa don't win there.

    Asif got the ball to go round corners there whilst Shoaib bounced the South Africans out on it before crying foul second innings.

    But Harmison isn't quality.
