Oh, don't believe it in the slightest, CD. What I mean is that publicly he's seen to go out on his own terms. I'm sure we all know there was a tap given..

Perhaps all will be revealed in an upcoming biography...

Amla, man, so good to watch. Quality player. Deserved a double ton the other day.
What do you all see happening from here in this test match?

The BBC is all powerful my friend.

So in essense, from the time it was picked up by FedEx, it's been bouncing between England and France.

 

FWIW, it wasn't a yoyo that I ordered ... smile.gif

I had somthing similar ounce I cant remember if it was Fedex but it ended up going to Ireland and then back to UK before finaly coming Aus at the time I was told that there was a place in Ireland with the same suberb name as mine, lame excuse but that was what they told me.

This and the final hurrah was pretty odinary. The idea is to go out with a bang not a wimper.

that batting performance in the first innings really let australia down, was absolutely fucking dismal.

Aussie members, do your work colleagues know that you participate in online forums?

 

I found out today that, it shouldn't be publicly advertised that you regularly contribute to online discussions. Is it really that weird?

Is that because EVERYTHING on the internet is the work of the devil?

I do all my posting at home during my free time which explains my shitty post count. I don't post at work and I don't discuss style forum at work. Clearly I'm not dedicated enough!

Second innings was better, though Mitchell Starc did top score. That's not right..

Is that your work policy or you were the subject of ridicule amongst peers?

If its a work policy then i can only understand if its via their infrastructure because they dont want you "bludging" ... Thats why i use my ipad and smartphone
