    It was more than sufficient that other Aussies showed concern.

    Finally, go the Waratahs - which they will do until falling in a screaming heap at the business end of the season.
    You beat my side last night but you'll win your 1st 4 or 5 games and then the wheels will fall off as usual.
    Nothing wrong with being intimidating but not apologising when you've hit the batsman and bowling beamers is not really cricket. I've never liked him though mainly bacause of his celebrations when he takes a wicket. Even if it's a No.11 he makes a goose of himself.

    Two 'car accidents' in 8 balls! On an Eden Park pitch!

    Those Proteas were right all along it seems - it's not just Papps' head that's been dented but also his future as an international player IMO. The prospect of him on a fast South African test wicket next spring is just scary.

    Yes. So if he'd killed him does that mean he would just walk back to his mark because he was trying to hit him in head.

    He never meant to kill him, just hit him and shake him up. Mission accomplished

    James Marshall will probably do pretty good and maybe Papps if he comes out again it should get close hopefully

    Just like NZ's tactic of playing openers who can't handle fast bowling...

    apologise for what, it should be Phapps apologising for imitating a batsman, all Lee did was bowl a good ball and Phapps wasnt good enough to get out of the way. What did you want Lee to say "sorry i'm bowling to good for you would you like me to slow down or maybe bowl underarm".
