    In, yeah.

    I do love Leeds but it can't be claimed to be good looking.

Ironic given that Broad initially came into the side in NZ five years ago when the previously undroppable Hoggard and Harmison were ditched.
    If I was NZ I'd much rather face Broad banging it in without much swing or seam action than Onions pitching it up and nibbling it

    Though I shouldn't laugh. While London has it's great features, it's fair to say beauty isn't its strongest. Get some absolute ****holes.

    tbf broad has taken a load of wickets in the last couple of years by pitching it up and swinging and seaming it. he knows how to bowl in test cricket, he just isn't very fit

    Tbf, Broad hasn't been uselessly banging it in for a while. If anything, he was too floaty against South Africa.

    Plenty of spots not far away are though. It's a good town, Leeds.

    Did anyone manage to listen to the wickets amongst the meat adds? Any context to caught Rae bowled Wagner? Slogging? Or proper wickets?

    Telfer's interested in him after getting texts from Howsie types. Also after hearing who his dad is.

    See, I really liked the area by the canal between the station and the ring road, but that's because I'm a real sucker for anything industrial. It ****s me off that in Glasgow we've all but obliterated our riverfront.

    Looking for a workhorse 4th seamer, bowling back-of-a-length, sharing the into the wind job with Williamson? Then Arnel > Wagner.
