Crickets over
(At least for my season anyway) Roll on the Cricket World Cup, I have taken the plunge and have Foxtel coming around to install on Thursday, just in time for the NAB cup and the Cricket. The thing I can't wait for though is the start of the VFL in 2007. Has any mention been made of changes as part of the 130th year celebrations? There were some good suggestions made, but I haven't heard anything official. The Borough haven't scheduled an 'official' intra-club game this year, so it might be a very rusty hit-out against the Scorpions... I am actually looking forward to making the big trip out to Cranbourne :)

The scorpions have a couple of light hit outs coming up, nothing major, i think the 4 scheduled praccy games are sufficient to cover match fitness etc. but not burn out players before round 1.

I saw a bit of it when I gout up this morning and the coverage wasn't too bad at all actually. Did anyone watch the warm up match Australia v England the other night? Greg Blewett will have a good career in commentary in my opinion.

He is more of a comic than a real commentator and it would be better if maybe he was a panel member on a discussion show or something like that.

My club crickets season came to a skiddy stop on Saturday. Missing the finals by .003 percent. By we still have to play a grading game over the next 2 saturdays. The world cup coverage was good this morning. Tomorrow morning wil l be great 2 games, 2 channels both live (Australia vs Scotland FS1,Canada vs Kenya FS3). Ben, just to let you know mate I missed on the Pura Cup Final gig so will be watching it from home next week.

He's a regular on The Back Page, a panel type show that discusses the previous weeks sport on Foxtel.[/quote] I wouldn't exactly call The Back Page a serious discussion show, it's definately more light harted than other programs out there. Pardon The Interuption Australia with Russ Barwick and Keka is better viewing my opnion and yes, I do watch both programs.

Apologies Dale61. I have a million things running through my head at the moment.

Well, I rolled up to Cricket training on Tuesday night, after being unavailable for this first round of finals... I got to TEAC Oval to find the nets down. I had forgotten that the finals were played Sat/Sun instead of over the two weeks, and 2nds and 3rd were both knocked out. Bring on the footy!

Has everyone been watching the World Cup? What are your thoughts on the Foxtel coverage?

Sorry Onslaught,cricket's not over just yet. I'm afraid I can't get excited over meaningless practice matches,so if you're like me you should get along to a Grand Final this weekend. I/ll be at Altona to watch the Craig Sheedy led Seagulls take on our arch rivals in a terrific local derby. The Towners easily accounted for powerhouse Caulfield in last weeks semi and are out to avenge the loss earlier in the season. Match starts 12.30 pm Sat/Sun at Kirk Oval,Altona,Melways54G9.
