    Cricket Related Rhyming Slang

    Inspired by the "Michelle Pfieffer (sp)" thread, I thought it would be good to get a thread to collate all the cricket related rhyming slang that people have picked up over the years.

    e.g
    David Boon - tunes. "Put on some David Boons"
    Bob Massie - chassis. "She's got a great Bob Massie"
    Chaminda Vaas - gluteus maximus. I was once sledged out on the field, "You don't have a bum! You've got no Chaminda!"
    Trever Gripper - slipper. "Jump into the grippers for me".

    It's not rhyming slang as such, but when I've had ten pints of Guinness, I'm nice and Freddied

    Commonly used where I played were the David Gowers.

    Used for that after game wash.
