Don't really think the forum is active enough for seperate threads so figure a general sports thread may be the ticket.
Loving Canberra getting into the GF. Seriously, is there anyone who hates Canberra? Hoping for the Roosters to smash the Storm tonight. Dirty Queensland f****.
And Japan just upset the f*** out of Ireland in the RWC. They got a knack for doing that.
lolz, rugby world cup.
afl gf was a write off.
no other sports are worth chatting about, unless we step down to pingpongs.
The Canberra Souths match was great. I was backing Storm but Sydney were just too good on the night. I backed Richmond but it wasnt worth watching.
Now to see if Elshorbagy can win the Netsuite Squash Championship.
Yeah I'm real happy with the GF this year. I love Roosters because they have plenty of good NSW players but Canberra have a special place in my heart.
Can't say I've been following the squash :P
who will be the best team at running in a straight line forward!?
i can hardly wait!
im probably more interested in the nrl gf pregame, who will they book that the bogans super duper hate!?
Daniel Johns or give Meatloaf another go at tanking
AFL GF was boring as f***.
Souths v Canberra was one of the best league games I've seen in years and I'm stoked they've made it into the final. Also happy that the Roosters made it as well because I put money on them earlier in the year at $4.25 to win the whole thing.
step UP. ping pong is awesome
Man I had some money on Croker to win the Clive Churchill, and when they were announcing it they said Canberra Raiders and a 'J' sound but unfortunately it was followed by 'ack Wighton :(
Proper dominance by Australia. Hard not to predict when the trio of fast bowlers have 11 tests between them and include an uncapped 16 year old, a 19 year old and a bona fide journeyman level cricketer.
I try to appreciate these moments by thinking back to the dark days immediately post Warne/McGrath/Langer and how bad that was. I suppose we had a pretty good Ashes contest, time for a bollocking.
we're on another level to pakistan.
They showed a bit of mettle today.
Managed to listen to a lot of the cricket on the radio over the last few days while at work, which was nice (I'm out of country & working in an office for a change so can't just have it on the TV in the background, boo!). Sounds like Australia is dominating over Pakistan but hard to tell from listening if it was just that we are on another level because we're really playing well or if Pakistan are just not in good form at the moment.
Warner had a good knock. I am still concerned he's a d*** tho
The big glaring difference is the bowling. Australia's bowling is about as good as it gets whereas Pakistan's lineup is very inexperienced.
Ahhh, I got money on Warner to make a test 400 and he would have today if it wasn't for that STUPID DECLARATION WHAT THE F***
wouldnt have been very team orientated if they let him keep batting. plenty of runs scored, enough to win the game without having to bat again.
They're going to win today with two days to spare.
we didnt know that yesterday.
Yeah but a) I would have won money and b) I would have looked really clever for picking Warner as the next player to beat the record.
Some real quality stuff here from Australia and Cummins whose average is slowly creeping below 20. Smashing Pakistan is one thing but dismantling the #2 side in this fashion is pretty special I reckon.
cummins bowling like mcgrath, just 15km/h faster
Hmmm poor Williamson. Hoping he can make a big one in the next test. He's one of my favourite players.
I have a closed Facebook group for sports posting if anyone is interested in joining, it's a good feed that covers most sports and supports level-headed, inclusive shares and commenting. Of course, keep posting here as well, your presence is required :)
Don't have facebook unfortunately.
Holy decimated black caps Batman. If NZ manage to win this without so many key players it'll be a miracle.
The mighty India absolutely bollocked by 10 wickets last night in an ODI I didn't know was on till about half way through.
