    @firstdifference:
    Gower and Warne aren’t banging on about it much, that’s the important thing.
    Properly baffling decision though from the replays we got.

    @sagmog:

    I am not sure the 3rd umpire is even awake. This is properly sleep inducing. Fair enough for England though, they have all the time in the world.

    Gents, I have put a consolidation of some of my “view from the cheap seats” posts into the Google drive as promised. Sorry for the delay – the machine which held the originals has just had a week in hospital. If you want to use it and would like some photos to go with it, let me know and I will email them.

    Have to say Bell making it look easy , and to back up my theory that he is better thasn a lot of people give him credit for , David Gower got 18 test centuries in 117 tests ,Bell 19 from 85 .

    @sagmog:

    Speaking of being 100% sure. How does the hawkeye margin of error factor into decisions? (Also does anyone know what it is?) Certainty is a weird thing for most one off decisions.

    @sunbeamtim:

    No, it was caught, foreshortening and all that. Not that makes a damn bit of difference to the final result. On the broader point, Bell is about as good as his average of 45 suggests.

    The umpire’s call thing is meant to deal with it.
    Less than 50% of the ball hitting summat, it stays with the ump’s decision.

    @sagmog:

    So wikipedia says that all it has to be is within margins of error to stay with the onfield decisions. I wish they were are bit clearer on what that meant. Does that mean if it is right on the edge of the confidence interval they will allow what is most likely an incorrect decision to stand?

    All in aid of showing that Bumbles’ 100% certain argument is silly.

    On the way home again. More drunk than yesterday.

    What has been talked about? Clarke is still a
    terrible captain. Changing my opinion.

    5-0.

    Welcome to the suck, Mckenzie

    Good Blackadder-ism by Avs

    Everytime I watch England at cricket Ian Bell scores big runs. Might be because he’s playing NZ though. In saying that NZ are superior at cricket than AUS. Is it time for NZ to ask for 5 test series?

    @kobw:

    How do you think the Crusaders will do now they have to travel? Two away games to win the thing. They have looked pretty invincible at home this year, while being pretty vincible on the road.

  29. kobw says:

    @firstdifference: I don’t think they will win it myself. It would be maybe their greatest win if they did. They have the experience to do it I just cant see it.

    Remember when the Super Rugby finished before the June tests? You then played three games before the Tri-Nations, so everyone had an equal build up to the big games. Now with the break if you don’t make playoffs you can have 5 or 6 weeks before 4N. It is going to be a huge advantage to be playing up to the final.

    Assuming no injuries of course. Though it will give sides not participating after the first week (by which I mean Australia) more time in camp together.

    @firstdifference: I don’t believe in training camps personally. The best practice for rugby games is rugby games. The 99 All Blacks & 03 South Africans tried training camps that were widely ridiculed.

    I agree for the most part, but it obviously helps to be a bit more accustomed to the people you are playing with.

    @kobw:

    Though even both the Chiefs and the Crusaders made the final that is still only 9 of the starting line up (going off the last game of the French tour + McCaw) playing until the final for the ABs. It may not be such an advantage.

    Just been thinking about Super Rugby in general. Never really been a fan. Seems to only benefit Australia. Haven’t really heard a good solution either so I will start the ball rolling. From the outside looking in 3 problems stick out for me:

    1. Argentina should be included
    2. South Africa are under-represented
    3. In the interest of equality Australia were awarded a fifth team before the fourth team was even decent.

    I propose a radical competition split into basically two separate competitions.

    South Africa-Argentina Competition-An 8 team competition that features 6 teams from South Africa & 2 from Argentina.

    Australia- New Zealand Competition- A 10 team competition that features 4 Australian & 6 New Zealand teams. I would ditch the Melbourne or Perth team in favour of a central North Island team

    @firstdifference: But as time goes on with the current system with the break for June tests (with no preparation time) and then the gap to 4N (with mixed preparation time) coaches will pick more domestic combinations to overcome the problem.

    So, speaking of Blackadderisms – if the Crusaders pull of the win, the Silver Fox isn’t quite the chump everyone has had him as for a while now?

    They can’t win a title without the “Greatest Of All Time” and with a shit coach, can they?

    @Tichtheid:

    Luck. I wouldn’t go so far as to say the greatest of all time. There isn’t really a great team in this comp at the moment. Crusaders’ early 2000s late 1990s wins over the Brumbies stand out for me. Or their displacing the Blues in the mid 1990s.

    @firstdifference:

    By “Greatest Of All Time” I meant Ruchie, he is often painted as such by Kiwis in a double bluff I reckon, if you over blow it so much you can’t possibly be serious, but at the same time you make the statement – I’ve been out in the sun at an out door gig, beer has been taken, so I might not be at my most coherent.

    Not sure how the season structure would go.
    As long as it done and dusted by June
    16 weeks between February & June to complete comps.
    June would be left for 3 tests verse NH opponents.
    July-August could feature a ‘superbowl’ between the 2 champions
    Followed by Rugby Championship
    September-October everyone back home for domestic comps.
    November for European tours.
    Back home for tea and medals and a rest.
    Breaking the comp in 2 would suit the timezones nicely.
    Aus-NZ could play more day games.
    SAF-Arg would line up with Europe
