    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..

    I don't think it needs this new direction though.

    Ha, good stuff.

    When conditions suite although it has been very scare since mid 2004 - he is. I strongly believe given the conditions that ENG are likely to face in SA, if Harmo wasn't retiring he would have a BIG impact, especially given Freddie is retiring.

    Good to see Onions has 100% justified the decision to play him over Harmison.

    Indeed. if the rumours about Freddie are true though then we might well see Harmy at leeds. Would be a shame for Freddie to miss the game where the Ashes are won back, mind.

    Never has a bowler had so many apologists for the fact that he's only remotely effect on about one in ten pitches.

    He'd be doing better than Broad.

    Bit worried if we lose Freddie for Headingly...batting would be shaky if he's replaced by Harmison. Still more confident that Freddie will back it up at the moment, hasn't had a massive match so far, guess it depends on the second innings/weather but it's not beyond possibility he will be fit.

    Hopefully by the Oval Onions has cemented his position enough that Harmison would only come in for Broad

    Will still be pretty surprised if Broad is dropped this series - the usual strategy of giving him an undeserved shot at the tailenders may have failed in the Edgbaston first-innings, but it's worked far, far more often than not through his career, and for the most part it's been all anyone needs.

    Harmison in for Broad weakens the batting, and with two tests to go and a 1-0 lead England won't be looking to do that. If Flintoff goes down, they'll probably bring in another batsman from somewhere like they did in 2005.

    Meanwhile, Onions has done what he did for Durham all year and demonstrated how much better he is than his county team-mate these days. Harmison's prospects for playing another test at all look bleak- unless Onions himself breaks down.

    Still a little dubious that Onions is better than his county team-mate (Davies) TBH, but he's certainly bowling damn well this season, think we can say that for sure now.

    When you take fitness into account- and when picking a team for test cricket, you absolutely have to- Onions>>>Davies.
