    Animal Magic

    Or perhaps that should read 'tragic' ... on the same lines as the Fat XI, I'm trying to put together a team comprised of players with animals' names - so far I've got a Bear, a Bull, a Pigg, a couple of Hawkes, a Bee and a Swallow. I think I can be excused having an extra letter here or there which doesn't alter the pronunciation - but I won't use near-misses like Eagleson and Oxenham unless the going gets tough.

    Beware though, if I don't get a wicket-keeper I may have to resort to 'Bear's Toe'

    Can anyone help complete the line-up?

    There's a Dolphin who kept wicket for England, as well as a Catt behind the sticks for Kent

    If you're really desperate there's always Roebuck and Turnbull, too.

    On the fish front there's Roach and Salmon.

    Jack Russell is a pretty obvious one.

    Thanks for the suggestions - here's what I've come up with -

    PM Roebuck (Som)
    MJ Bear (Essex)
    CH Bull (Worc)
    CJ Fox (Kent)
    H Pigg (N'hants)
    A Dolphin (Yorks)
    GP Swann (Notts)
    RM Hogg (S Aus/Aus)
    IG Swallow (Som)
    Lord Hawke (Yorks)
    A Bee (Scotland)


    I could have had Brad, Kyle or Willie Hogg but went for Rodney as my overseas player. Similarly Neil Hawke misses out as Lord Hawke is an automatic (and aristocratic) captain. Others to miss the cut included Catt, 'Jack' Russell, GH Salmon, HD Hake and HH Gibbons.

    Now, does anyone know a good remedy for insomnia? I'm trying watching highlights of the Tour do France (in Kent), but to no avail.

    If you do come by one, please let me know. I've been tossing and turning in bed for the past three hours, but I just can't switch off. It's 2.54am now, and I'm naturally not in the best of emotional states.
