    Great performance though. Wasn't up to watch it, but that last hour seemed intense.

    What a great series, well done Australia. Now comes the boring spell with no tests to watch.

    Both teams battered, bruised, and dead on their feet. Three Test matches full of achievements worthy of ATG status. Surely one of the best 3 match series on record?

    Nah, problem was none of the tests were all that close, it was close as a series but it ended up being a straight forward 'bat first, bat big, win game' series

    Yeah, this series was crap. I'm so disappointed it wasn't more one sided.

    Was suffering insomnia so got up and watched the last hour. Was screaming (very quietly to not wake the family) at the screen at some **** to bowl a ball or two at the actual ****ing stumps.

    Just knew if anyone would get their **** together and attack the pegs it would be Rhino. Dudes a ****ing monster. To have transformed himself from the modest medium pacer he was for so many years into top shelf on his dodgy knees is remarkable. If he was a seppo the movie rights would be going for millions.

His overall performance in the series was one of the finest ever, I don't care if it was in a losing cause, it wasnt his fault that others around him were playing rubbish cricket. Sad that such a fabulous performance went unnoticed.
    That is just wrong.

    What a summer for Australia. Never saw this happening. Rhino, Johnson and Warner have been stars. Clarke's batting and captaincy stellar as well. Smith next best. Rhino my fave though. Classic that he took the last 2 wickets as the Saffers moved in on their 3rd great escape.

    Apparently Harris had 30 mills of fluid drained from his knee after day 4.

    Jesus Christ, what a man.
