    Very true, so if Australia did it does that mean England has better fans?

    Australian tests going back a couple hours would be a killer for the English fans.

    If anything it might help; they could get up a little early and catch the last session while they got ready for work. As it stands the eastern states Tests start at Midnight and finish at 7am for them; doesn't get much worse.

    Maybe. But I'd much rather spend my christmas break watching the first session and snoozing off at 2am than getting up at 6:00am to watch the final session.

    In fact on a normal weekday I'd actually rather just not watch the final session and watch the highlights when I get home. But I'm probably in the minority there

    If you're on break and can stay up till 2am then you can probably just go the whole hog and change your sleeping patterns entirely. Life can go do one.

    Yeah, well that's what I do.

    Normally I reckon more people stay up to watch the first part of the day than get up to watch the last part. But I could be wrong.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
