**Official Discussion Thread for American Samoa Friendly**


Cricketer Of The Year
Discuss the upcoming Friendly against American Samoa here...

The 20 Man train-on Squad will be announced later today.


International Regular
Unfortunately it is obvious no Northern Power player will be picked for the 20 man squad.

Crying shame as we have great potential with Pete and Tharmi acorss the back, and Dave up front.

Unfortunaltey for us, we can;'t compete with the other teams in better positions on the ladder. ..... under cover work has potentially shown that the likes of Gough and Smith are under the influence of drugs.

More to come from bias reporters in the future. :cool:

Let's take this outside.
Rumour has it that you are a 7 foot 5, 165 kilogram giant goalie.....

I think i'll just slag you on the pitch, hey.

I thank you for a quiet bevy outside, though.

That's right, plus I have an earring which makes me ultra tough. Nothing wrong with some on field "mental disentigration". Anyway back on topic, if I have a good game today then I hope that puts me in contention for the 20 man train on squad.

i doubt that
Why? We have had 3 cleansheets if I remeber correctly. Plus I haven't had to make many saves which says alot for our defenders.


Cricket Web: All-Time Legend
Given the clean sheets situation, i'd be suprised if you weren't included tbh.

Good to see a fair number of Central players in that squad. Well done to those in there.


International Regular
Congrats to everyone that made the squad. Good to see a couple of Power players in there.


International Captain
Delighted to be in the squad. Congrats to everyone else that made it too, especially Tharmi. Well done to Goughy, a very worthy captain and I'm sure he'll lead us well. Not expecting to make the team but I'm delighted to be involved in the train-on squad.
