    Stiff as a wobble board.

    Vics only playing 5 bats didn't help his causes either. I can easily understand the reasoning behind playing McKay and then also giving Holland an opportunity. Realistically it was between Handscomb and Finch, nothing wrong with going for the young talent when the other bat has been struggling in that particular format for quite some time.

    Him or Handscomb as a bat, Finch had a nightmare of a year last year. Was cultivating a decent record before that, and has reportedly been the standout in the preseason matches this season.

    More my point being Hastings at 7 is a spot too high, to fit in all five bowlers (Hasto, McKay, Sids, Patto, Holland).

    Some people would look at the club that Handscomb plays for (St. Kilda) and point at that. Because they are a powerhouse, they do attract some really good kids, but those kids do seem to get fast-tracked a bit quicker.

    Andrew Lynch, chairman of selectors/talent manager, and Shaun Graf, GM of cricket, both from St. Kilda.

    Finch still plays his cricket at Geelong, which has produced a number of excellent juniors and guys with rookie contract that haven't gone on.

    Man its been a great spell from Sid.

    Hopes out to Hastings was a terrible shot given the situation. Can't expect Cutting and Hartley to save us again, we'll do well to make 150 here.

    I like that it was Siddle and Pattinson that took the entire QLD top order. I still want QLD to win by a huge margin, but I do like that half our pace attack is finding form before the tests.

    Hughes Cordon Watch - 3rd slip. That's 3/3 in the cordon.

    Vics in trouble here 5/64 in reply to 149. Finch got more runs in the OD match. Even with his performances last season, its strange call. I doubt he would have made a difference, can't recall too many big runs from him in seaming conditions. Always seem to be a bit of FTB.

    I'm no Tom Cooper fan but the report yesterday seemed to indicate that he suffered a suspected broken hand - now I'm not sure if it is, but it certainly couldn't have helped him.

    Very big call to send out a guy with a broken hand as number 3. Either it's crap or SA is more of joke than I already thought.

    Just looking over some First Class records, how come Butterworth hasn't been considered for Test cricket? Got a pretty outstanding bowling record and a good batting average. Same question with James Faulkner.
