Not too many actual poms to tease around here either so being a half blood made me an easy banter target.
    Funny, I have an ongoing soft spot for Australia because of the exact reasons you claim caused you to side towards England when you were younger. I don't even have any family connections to Australia, though.

    Tis what happens when Australia lose their dominance early in your following of the game. In 5 years, CW will be full of Aussie supporting poms

    Even though he played that quite well, Williamson playing that shot is really good news for England.

    I've enjoyed what he's said so far, but I agree. Probably easier to improve your sound than your content though.

    Wonder how the Aussies will tackle someone supporting them out of pity.
