Yup. TBH, that's the way it should be. If u r good enough to play for your country, you should be able to get runs against the states

Re: The Cricket Thread

Khwaja and Burns both with tons in QLD win over Tassie. Should keep them on the selectors radar for the time being. T20s against NZ starts today. Expect a very competitive series. They just manage to squeeze it in before footy season begins. Uzi probably should have had a run this series, but yes, ...

Re: NFL Thread

Wentz traded to the Colts for a 2021 3rd round pick, and a 2022 conditional 1st round pick (becomes a 2nd rounder if he plays less than 75% of offensive snaps or less than 70% and they miss the playoffs). In other words: Wentz plays more than 75% - 1st Wentz plays 70-75% and they get in playoffs - ...

Re: CNK

The Warriors have the brilliant Peta Hiku and also Paul Turner in the wings, though Turner is a rookie. They don’t need CNK. Pretty sure its Pompey that they are impressed with.

I dont see the upside for anyone. Stafford is 33, and while QBs can play til 40, surely he is more likely a mid 30s finisher. So Rams might have 3 or 4yrs good yrs left. However, its not like Stafford was that great this yr, a very middle of the road QB record this yr. Proven talent or not, those pi...

I like where Botman and Afgtnk are coming from. IMO, Hodgo will be "nursed", or at least covered for the early part of the season. The question is, do you go for versatility, Havili, allowing Hodgo to make the mins call, OR, do you plan the change/impact role, and play Starling. Given Rick...
