    England had a team full of born and bred Englishman?

    what is it with their obsession for Saffers :?

    they have used quite a few Aussies over the years as well, they even named Roy in one of their A teams but Roy told them to f**k off

    we used a Saffer as well , Kepler Wessels

    it would have to be before Tony Grieg, so I'd say at a guess, back to the 70's

    they have also had a few west indians as well

    Symonds was born in England. Thank f**k we never had to deal with his issues, though.

    We have always had a few Saffers in the team. But, like Australia, they're in the Commonwealth so they're de facto Englishmen anyway.:p

    It's not something we can deny. Although cricket is abit of an anomaly for Australia as most of your national teams do tend to have alot of imports. League and Union being prime examples.

    I guess we need all the help we can get as hardly any English lads grow up playing cricket whereas nearly all Aussie boys have a go at some stage.

    You are a moron. It is reasonably clear to know what I meant. You're just an obnoxious little toe weed who needs to get the F off the forum and experience sunlight. You're just display extra sand because its been highlighted that Australia has done much the same.

    Stick to glue.

    :lol:

    it can only be interpreted one way

    you claimed he ws born in NZ


    we have not done the same you dunce

    nobody can even guess when England had an all England team

    you can think of 3 people who have played for Aus born in other countries and one of them has only played 4 ODI's. not one test

    Seems to be a few saffas imigrating to England. I keep hearing them saying stuff about they're getting dejected with the quota system in South Africa.

    Also lets not forget Graeme Hick. He's a Zimbot.

    Lets not forget Tim Ambrose. He's from Newcastle (and not Newcastle in England either)

    At least Symo grew up here.
