    With the absence of ready made replacements for Ponting and Hussey I'd be good with giving youth a chance but I have the feeling that the public will want immediate results. So if the replacements don't impress quickly we could get a chop and change period with the batting. Maybe Watson not bowling will help stability.

    I've said it before, but I'm not sure what I find disappointing...the fact that our selectors won't consider Cosgrove because (presumably) he is fat, or the fact that Cosgrove is not willing to drop a few kilos and be a very real chance of getting a Baggy Green.

    From what I have heard from people in the know he is quite a solid, stocky sort of guy. No doubt some fat on there, but he can supposedly bench press ridiculous amounts.

    Not the worst combination bro, though I'd love to see Harris' name there instead of Johnson
