    Jones feeling good about fitness

    Worcestershire pace bowler Simon Jones says he is as fit as he has ever been as he starts his career at New Road.

    The 29-year-old left Glamorgan to join the Royals just three years after starring in England's famous Ashes win.

    Despite his injury problems in the last two summers, Jones has told BBC Radio Hereford and Worcester he is raring to get going for his new county.

    He said: "I've been working hard with the physio, done lots of bowling and am feeling really good."

    ...Well, let's hope he can start playing well again !...

    The thought of Jones and Flintoff ripping it up this sumemr makes me foam at the mouth. But so does the thought of Aldo playing in a Tranmere shirt again

    Uh oh. In the NFL, when a veteran says 'I'm in the best shape of my life', its code word for 'I'm washed up and nowehre near my prime, but I can build myself up so I can get one more contract with signing bonus.'

    Don't get your hopes up, the possibilities are still fairly slim. Certainly there's absolutely no way Jones is going to play in the NZ series, and really nor should Flintoff.

    Mark my words, Jones will never be the bowler he was ever again. Any fast bowler who's injured for that long will struggle to regain pace and form. England should write him off and take it as a bonus if he is even ever close to a Test/ODI place again.
