Thread: North of England v South of England

  1. #1

    North of England v South of England

    Obviously North of England would win comprehensively because we're made of sterner stuff than the southern softies, but what would the teams be and what would be their relative strengths?

    This is all I've got time to come up with at the moment (they're Test sides), I'll finish them later when I've got someone else to copy off. Oh and any claims to KP are dubious at best.

    By the way for those that are intellectually challenged this is purely hypothetical and not some silly regular series of 3 ODIs that no TV company wants to cover.


    North

    *Vaughan
    Collingwood
    Flintoff
    Hoggard
    Harmison
    Anderson


    South

    Trescothick
    Strauss
    Bell
    +Geraint Jones

    The last few places have been very tricky, have basically just thrown any old rubbish batters in for the North side. Note I've not gone on whether the county they're playing for is northern or not, but on whether from the data available that they're actually northerners or southerners.

    North

    Jefferson
    Chilton
    *Vaughan
    McGrath
    Collingwood
    Flintoff
    +Hegg
    Batty
    Hoggard
    Harmison
    Anderson

    Others: Keedy (him Hoggard, Harmison and Anderson would be too much)


    South

    *Trescothick
    Strauss
    Butcher
    Bell
    Key
    Rikki Clarke...
    +Geraint Jones
    Giles
    Jon Lewis
    Tremlett
    Kirtley

    Others: Cook, Saggers, Read, Prior

    This thread strikes me as increadibly pointless searching through peoples records too see if they are from the north or south at what point do they become different exactly?

    I'd take Luke Sutton over Hegg atm. maybe even Jon Batty

    Ian Blackwell might be just as much use as Batty.

    That's far too South for my liking. Somewhere like Wolverhampton, Leicester or, if I'm going to be really harsh on all those midlanders who want to be northern, Stoke On Trent is far greater. Can't let any old riff raff call themselves northern.

    Yea, probably right, if Mustard (Durham) had been playing a bit longer I might have picked him.
