    Nah mate, the days of having 3 bunnies at the end of the line up are long gone. In a lot of respects it is Australias tail end efforts that have done for us this series........and certainly when England were going well getting through Bresnan, Broad, Swann and Anderson was a ****ing battle for bowling attacks.

    Pisses me right off.

    Bresnan, Stokes, Borthwick lets just go back to the 90s.

    Bowlers bowl, batsmen bat. Space for one all rounder in the team MAX.
    To be fair to England, they've had more success picking bowlers who can bat than batsmen who can bat this series.

    Time for a rant...I'm a great fan of Watson's potential, and so dissapointed he's never reached it in Test cricket, but this is rediculous...he's averaging 41.85 in this series, averaging over 70 in last 2 tests and Lehman makes a statement something like...Watto must be dissapointed with his #3 returns and as an allrounder must bowl in Sydney.... Doolan is added for cover for Watson, when Watson says on tv, I'm fine, no injury....all the while Bailey still sitting pretty at # 6 with a test average of only 27...as Ian Chappell, said, Bailey will never be a Test player

    ...okay rant finsished, sorry as drunk

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I'm no Watson fan but if there's a desire to bring in Faulkner or Dools then George should be the one to go.

    Would it surprise anyone to see Watson left out, Bailey dropped, Haddin stupidly moved to 6 and Forkers batting at 7 in his debut test match?

    Watson only gets dropped for homework and not being fit to bat so I expect him to play. Haddin at 6 is the most likely scenario to cover his overs and the selectors love all rounders. NSW selectors would have him at 5 with 2 all rounders following. So it could be worse.
