My point being is our guys were bowling the same speed as him.

RE: Cricket: NZ vs England
So Jofra is actually really really quick and outer radar was just making him look slow and disinterested.
How did our guys speeds stack up against Archer? Weren't they similar? So if Archer is actually bowling at 150 clicks when the radar says 130 how unbelievably quick woul Lochie Ferguson be with a "proper" radar...
Or was he struggling with having to grind through a test match.
Seeme quite an articulate and personable bloke but can't escape the feeling he was over hyped, over bowled and over here.
RE: Super Rugby News
@Chris-B you keep telling yourself pal
Ranfurly is the Tasman Unicorn!
we shall ignore that I wasnt born last time we held the damned thing...
I recall listening to the game on 2ZA where Chippie Semenoff kicked the penalty.
I was torn as we'd not long shifted from Northland.
RE: Aussie Bush Fires
During the last real period of extreme and catastrophic fire weather (the start if this thread) I signed up to the QFES (Qld Fire & Emergency Services) media centre to get email alerts. (Am working at Council at the moment and Disaster Coordinator suggested we do that to keep informed.)
Unfortunately I don't have actual numbers but had noticeably sided down last week. Seriously ramped back up again last few days.
Only take notice of those fires somewhere near us though.
I can say that in all that time the Woodgate fire, the one closish to us, was never extinguished. It is "contained" now, but still burning. I find that scary that these fires just keep going.
Managed to avoid the cane myself thank God but one of my favourite school punishment stories concerned my brother-in-law who was a naughty kid at a pretty shitty school. One sadistic bastard teacher kept a slipper in a biscuit tin in the cupboard and the punishment was a ceremony as well as painful. The offender was made to go to the cupboard and retrieve the biscuit tin, put it on the teacher's desk and then bend over the desk in front of the class and wait while the biscuit tin was opened, the slipper produced with a flourish and then receive the punishment.
Anyway, one night my b-i-l and his mate Shovel broke into the school and burnt the slipper to ashes which they then left in the biscuit tin in the cupboard. They both played up the next day and were called for punishment. When the poor bastard saw his beloved slipper in ashes in the biscuit tin he broke down and sobbed. He was never the same again.
Vengeance was sweet apparently.
