    And then they wonder why we can be barely field one test team when we damn near used to be able to field two.

    it was a pretty decent wrongun, normally they only move a bit which is all thats needed but that was a vicious turner, gave it a hell of a rip

    Can anyone please shed some light on the continued career of Will Bosisto?

    This is his sixth season contracted as a top-order batsman in the West with an average of 20.5.

    Was going to call him out as been the WA version if Nick Larkin but I am not even sure if Bosisto makes futures runs. Larkin’s last 5 futures innings he has made 3 double tons, 189 and 129 not out. merkin looks like he doesnt know which end of the bat to hold when he plays shield.

    Haha. Renshaw took the piss today for Toombul. Took an hour to get off the mark and still went on to make a 130 ball ton. Needed match practice though... what a f**king joke. Joe Burns 216... f**k these WA merkins off and put the Qld boys in ffs

    Renshaw is Australia's best eligible Test batsman right now imo.

    And yet he couldn't get a game.

    But a bloke who averages 26 got a gig at no.4

    Australian cricket is an absolute shambles.

    Well that's just great. Shaun Marsh will still be in the team when he's 90 at this rate. He already bats like he's 90 so probably not much difference.

    I'd still be picking Renshaw for SL and dropping SMarsh though.

    Blues rolled for SFA, how embarrassing.

    Treamin continues to get wickets and overlooked for the top side. Should start eating bananas and bowling at 125kms an hour.

    Going to be a long season for the Blues.

    Tremain doesn’t have a toy box, nor does he have levers and must not be a good enough bloke for JL.

    as long as we keep playing these young newbies I'm OK with a few losses

    we just had a clean out so gotta bring the young fellas through some how, surprised we are still playing Copeland tho, I know he gets a few wickets but at his pace he is never going to break back into the Aussie team
