Re: The Boris bubble

I need to stop reading the woes of Westminster. I had a dream last night that I was living in a share house while at uni with Boris and he kept on insisting on how we should pack the fridge... Boris "no the meat has to go on the third shelf as it has the best airflow or we will all die of some horri...

Re: The ashes 2019

well played Australia and deserving win. good that England showed some fight on the final day but once Stokes was gone it was only a matter of time and the Australians showed good composure and patience to close out the test match. Test five should be a good one plenty to play for and will end a goo...

Re: The ashes 2019

England on the ropes and hard to see them getting to tea in fact it could be over before lunch. the first session will be a cracker and IF England to manage a draw the fifth test will be a block buster !

Re: The ashes 2019

how a dropped catch and a no ball can cost you the Ashes, hard to see England recovering from such a deficit and I doubt the match will make it to Sunday. Great innings from Smith and Paine but as Smith himself said the English wasted the new ball by pitching too short, Broad bowled well but wasn't ...

Re: The Boris bubble

Boris the clown storms Westminster and fails a further 3 times on the floor. an election is still the likely outcome but Labor won't support the motion until a no deal brexit is ruled out by the lords which might take a few days. so more days of chaos and lies from Boris.

Re: The ashes 2019

Australia certainly won the day, well played steve and marnus; tomorrow looks to be a good batting day so England will need to do something special to keep Australia below 300. Friday weather looks pretty mixed so the Australian bowlers might yet get the best of the conditions. good analysis from ge...

Re: The ashes 2019

I hope Australia play Starc he could be a real weapon in this test, but I think Khawaja has been hard done; Harris has done nothing and playing at 3 when your openers aren't performing is a challenge.
rain might force this test to a draw, forecast doesn't look good until the weekend.

Re: The Boris bubble

no, the first bill for tomorrow is to stop a no deal brexit and force the PM to seek an extension till January and then to force an election as such a defeat for Boris would demand. he will still need to get a 2/3 majority vote for an election but it is likely that Labor will support the election mo...

Re: The Boris bubble

301 - 328 good way for Boris to start his prime minister-ship; he'll likely fail again tomorrow and be forced to call for an election... the train wreck of British politics continues and will likely overshadow the test

Re: The ashes 2019

that was a poor decision by the ump but Australia dug that hole. I'm not a fan of Stokes though when you put on the war paint and go full monty he deserves some credit. with 80 runs and one wicket Australia should have it well before the ump decided the game. It does set up a couple of good tests, E...

Re: 2018 AFL and AFLW - Tipping comp details inside!

Official results for the season... Mini takes home the meat tray, Hamish a free shout and Makena a beanie. some good games this year (except the ones involving the Dees) and should be a cracking final series... Go the mighty Lions :) https://i.imgur.com/6B4wlH6.jpg https://i.imgur.com/o70iFzs.jpg

Re: 2018 AFL and AFLW - Tipping comp details inside!

last game this weekend for the home&away comp and looks like Mini will take first unless he forgets to put in his tips. Hamish looks best for second and me and Makena will ironically battle it out for third; unlike our team the Dees who have had the worst year in about five seasons and we can only h...

Re: 2018 AFL and AFLW - Tipping comp details inside!

good effort by the Dees to only lose by 33 points though not sure why they reverted to a 15 player formation midway through the 3rd, perhaps Goodwin is pushing for a rugby union coaching job next year.

and Hamish grabs second on the table, well played :)

Re: 2018 AFL and AFLW - Tipping comp details inside!

the battle for 2nd is heating up, good round from Hamish.
and good to see the Dees performing at the top of their game and only losing by less than 20, moving the training venue to Tahiti is definitely paying dividends :(

Re: Doctor Who

just from Ivu; they showed the first series in May and have done nought since. kinda of sad I thought they were going to do a full rerun but nothing... hoping they will do something before the next new series with Jodie.
