If it wasnt for Australia over the years world crickets standards would have been so low it wouldnt have been worth watching.

Hard to imagine, Australian teams have been dragging it down for years.

Then de Kock snapped and brought up Candice/SBW, which is not acceptable under the criteria of hard but fair behaviour Australia expect other teams to adhere to. A punch up nearly ensued.

At the next test, a lot of South African fans turned up with SBW masks, encouraged by a couple of representatives from Cricket South Africa.

In the next test, Warner encouraged Bancroft to tamper the ball with sandpaper. They were caught.
Pretty good summation. Would be amazed if anybody believed that Warner concocted this as revenge. BTW, Candice is renowned in these parts for being involved with a large number of sportsmen.

I daresay QDK/the crowd etc suggested similar.

Personally, I think he could have done better than Candice. She's trailer trash. She seems to have an obsession with being seen with celebrities. Vice Captain of the Australian team is quite high profile. Think she had a fling with David Walliams once.

I do love the "they were not doing it for themselves, they were doing it for the bowlers" line, because of course there was no potential personal benefit from winning as a team.

There's nothing wrong with him defending their character, Warner excluded, but Moises does come across as a bit of a feckin eejit.

Australians are of course well known for being subjects of the Queen.

To be honest with you, god bless the Englishmen who got here first, thank god they got here instead of the French for example, absolute pests they are.

The English are ok when they are washed.

600 posts, id like to thank the owners and mods for having me and thank my fans, its an honour to have had the pleasure of popping in here over the years even if there are some hair brained leftist PC warriors here.
To you 'men' in England, just dont let your proud country be destroyed like Sweden and France, stand up and fight against evil, fight for the great lands your forefathers blood sweat and tears created.
NEVER attack your own forefathers, be very proud of what they created, be ever vigilant.
Deus Vult lads, be proud.

Presumably France was ruined when the French arrived.

We actually voted to keep the queen as our head of state a while back, rather than become a republic. This probably has less to do with devotion to royalty, and more to do with a complete lack of confidence in our politicians however. A kind of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" type of thing.

I think that's more or less why we keep the queen too, and also there's our instinctive love for massive financial inequality to consider as well. Still, it would have been a lot easier for Australia to ditch her than for the UK to, since all they had to do was go and vote for it.
