WHAT?!! I’ll have to check that story out, jeez, what is wrong with Ricky Ponting, he’s such a bad sportsman. Fair enough they’ve just whooped the world XI team (But then considering this is a team which doesn’t ever play together, there’s not much surprise there!), but to accuse us of things like that makes me sick. Grrrrrr! I say let him face another few overs from Harmo and Freddy with no protective clothing, just as punishment. Have you a link to a story reporting this?

I read in our local rag so I’m not too sure if I can find a link. I’ll try though. The gist of it all is that they use a breath mint to make their saliva ‘sugary’ and then they rub it on the ball to make it reverse swing (which I may add isn’t even illegal!)

Sorry Mort, it won’t let me see the article without buying a subscription. I’ll try another paper and see if anyone ran a similar story.

In this one they say that it was only Nathan Bracken who made the comment but the article I read implied the whole team had made the accusation. Not sure which is correct.

Hey Netti, hey LaMa! My stage combat module was brilliant, we were doing sword fighting! Pulled so very many muscles though

It was! Plus the instructor singled me out and taught me a proper sword fight no one else got to do. It had a spin in it and everything. The boys were all jealous…and a little scared!
