    41.2 Ntini to Ponting, OUT, bowled em! Ponting’s decision to leave a full, massively inswinging delivery denies him a century, what was he doing?

    Aussies bowling really well today. Hilfenhaus was awesome! If McKenzie was any good 😉 he would have been out at least 5 times the way that ball beat the bat. Great shape the bowler got! :thumbup:

    Should get easier to bat as the ball goes old but we also need to capatilize and not get caught out with the next newball and ith only 180 odd runs on the board! :roll:

    Dude

    The conditions were absolutely perfect for bowling this afternoon.

    It was so humid and cloudy in Jhb it might have been Durban.

    If you kept your mouth open long enough moisture was forming on your lips.

    There was literally a haze over Wanderers.

    I drove past there on the way to a meeting in Kew this afternoon.

    Just add to this combo Aussie bowlers with more brains than the whole SA team… i.e. figured out that gee if you bowl fuller the ball will swing.

    And then bowled BRILLIANT seam and got the ball to swing.

    IMO it is not the score or winning that counts in these warm-ups. It is how you are playing phase by phase.
    I have my guys focused on winning the phase (Attack and defence) Make sure you do what is needed (basics) and do that well. The rest will follow.

    Defence : backs not communicating, I believe we slipped all the tries there. I playesd 15 and not at all sure about positional play, sadly – just as k MorneN! Want to learn but slow learner & the guy from 1st team confused me and made me nervous.

    Attack : emphasis on playing same side until we reach sideline. Didn’t happen – forwards too slow to breakdowns & scrummy keeps changing sides. Only had ball in hand twice during whole hour – 1) bad pass 2) gathered kick 3) knocked uppie.

    Need to work on 1) tackles – exceptionally shitty & dunno why 2) running straight 3) fitness!!!!!!

    on 15 positional play – I feel that most newcomers to this position are always to flat. IMO stay as deep as possible on defence, you can always run to the ball in front of you. Crap feeling is if you have to turn around and run after the bloody thing!

    Attack: I focus on the guys attacking with full emphasis on this – on attack my 15 is not the FB anymore but part of the attacking back-line. I do not worry about being turned over – that is negative thinking!

    The 9 covers for that anyway 😉

    Scrummy should stick to a game plan! It drives my crazy if guys work for weeks on a structure and then throw it out the window 5 min into the game

This chop from 1st team from sideline though keeps yelling at me to go hither and go yon and he’s not even playing. Problem though was that guys didn’t communicate and there were gaps that I needed to plug.

    We got another chance coming Thurs & wanne take that with both hands. Hope to be better especially at tackling and hope the backline moves goes down this time.

    France 3
    Wales 13
    24min

    Against the run of play IMO – France the better side but not on the scoreboard!

    Frogs win 21-16.

    Deservedly so.

    French centres just killed
    everything the Welsh midfield
    tried.

    A bit harsh Cabbo? I would LOOOOVE to see you eat your words. Imagine, Proteas break the world record for chasing the highest total to win a test – how unlikely it may seem! :support:

    178/2

    Kallis and Amla in

    Pitch starting to show some wear and tear – a few balls kept low or jagged around.

    But at the same time the sun is out and the moisture that helped the swing bowlers has evaporated.

    Today was a sunny day in Gauteng with a hint of a snip of winter in it.

    And the air dried.

    Now the Aussie bowlers are starting to look ncreasingly innocuous.

    McKenzie and Smith perished to moronic shots, and not good balls.

    Anyway

    Tomorrow will be an intriguing day.

    Actually I reckon with just 276 to get we could actually do it…

    Just need a few big partnershps.

    In any case what the hell is 454

    We’ve chased 434 on this stadium inside 50 overs.

    Hehehe.
    Kallis and Duminy will have
    to move ass. And Amla.
    And we’ll need another ton
    from AB.

    Anyway, they have less problems
    than the Stormers.

    I believe SARU has vetoed Cheeky’s
    idea about an all-African franchise.
    Just as I was wondering if they will
    be forced to have a white quota.

    Both SEC teams were fooked over the
    weekend.

    Miskien het jy net vergeet om
    die yskas se deur toe te maak.

    Ons hittegolf gaan nog ‘n week duur.
    Dis erger as om ‘n oond se deur oop
    te los.
