Haha sorry man, I've been watching it, just haven't been talking about it on here.

Your Thunder are shaping up well I reckon.
We have a bbl cricket thread in the cricket section bro if you’re interested like previous years. I’m updating games and so many highlights in that thread......

I hope so and they tipped us to finish last again did the bookies but we always prove them wrong.

Your Scorchers got a win last night but have been struggling. Some of them seem to me to have looked like they’re disinterested......

Agreed. Scorcher's batting has been piss poor!

That is our cat she is 12. Pure bred Russian Blue. They are very rare these days. S J S J stanleyg stanleyg callmack1 callmack1 Southy Southy Archie Archie The_Fanatical_Rooster The_Fanatical_Rooster Themacemaceman Themacemaceman doyen doyen

She had a bad run last year Silky and early this year we nearly lost her as I’ve mentioned before. a blood transfusion saved her life and she had a blockage in one of her kidneys and there was only an 11percent chance she’d pull through but we did. Silky is a miracle cat.

She still has Chronic Kidney disease just on the border of stage 3 so she is on so many meds it’s very expensive and daily subcut fluids under the skin we take her to the local vet each arvo, but she’s been stable the last 3-4 months. She is under a specialist at Roseberry animal hospital though who is great and right now she goes there every 2-3 weeks.

Some say put her down and get another one but we can’t she’s apart of the family.

I am the favourite in the family always have been.

S J S J this is the first photo in a long time that has worked so I’m happy it’s loaded.
A beautiful cat indeed. Pets are such dear things. My wife & I lost our Jack Russell last June & we're still feeling the grief. Hope your cat powers on for many years to come mate.

These Big Bash cricketers are ruining their game ----this is NOT serious or real cricket--the technique of many of these batsmen is poor ----I refuse to watch it as a true connoisseur of cricket----look at Test cricket now--the batsmen are lucky to make a game last 3 days due to their poor ability-----this cricket is a money-spinner thing----the only decent thing to come out of this Big Bash is the fielding---next thing we'll have the NRL trying to f--k their game up too !!!!!!

My Dad says that a lot as well like you and it’s true big bash is meaning players are not really practising as much on 4 or 5 day cricket.

And you’re not wrong lots of these batsmen have technique issues that struggle against the red ball......

My favourite form of cricket is still test matches, then it’d be T20 followed by ODI cricket.

The benefit of going to a big bash game is it’s over in 3 and a half hours and that appeals to me and it would many others compared to being at the ground for 8 hours.........

Probably the best, most productive & valuable form of cricket is the 50 over game for the following reasons.
It allows the top order batsmen time to build an innings whilst still encouraging them to be on the lookout for runs & play a sensible & more traditional type game. Good technique & wise stroke-play is encouraged--NOT trying to BASH every ball & playing silly backhanded shots etc...
It encourages bowlers to bowl more accurately in order to slow the batsman.
The batsmen's running between the wickets becomes an all important skill.
The fieldsmen need to be super keen in order to save runs & to keep pressure on the batsmen.
I did once prefer Test cricket too but the 50 over game to me is a great coaching situation as it encourages all the skills of the game without it being an over the top,chaotic & definitely non-productive one for the futures of cricketers who may have the ambition to play Test Cricket--in fact,it is destructive;purely designed only to "ENTERTAIN" & give a short-time fix like drugs do !! TBH,if I was asked to accurately name a Big Bash team for my life I'd be a dead man, & as I've said before, I'd watch it if I was well paid to do that !! TEST cricket has depreciated in recent years,IMO !!
Foxsport occasionally put up a highlight of an amazing catch which I can appreciate---I can enjoy that catch in about 30 seconds which is really plenty of BB for me !!!

Urgent Covid alert for 63 Sydney suburbs after disturbing find
More than 60 suburbs have been put on alert, after sewage testing at two treatment plants in Sydney detected fragments of the virus which causes Covid-19.
The fragments were detected as part of NSW’s ongoing sewage surveillance, the two treatment plants authorities flagged on Monday are the treatment plants in Liverpool and Glenfield in Sydney’s south west.
The plants cover 63 suburbs in the Liverpool and Campbelltown local government areas and NSW health authorities are now concerned Covid may be circulating in the community undetected.
The presence of SARS-CoV-2 in sewage may reflect the presence of known cases of Covid-19 diagnosed in recent weeks in the areas served by these sewage treatment plants,” NSW Health said.
“However, NSW Health is concerned there could be other active cases in the local community in people who have not been tested and who might incorrectly assume their symptoms are just a cold.”
Anyone who is in those areas is being asked by NSW Health to be on alert for symptoms and get tested if any develop and isolate until a negative result is received.
The suburbs covered by the Liverpool and Glenfield treatment plans include:
Abbotsbury
Airds
Ambarvale
Appin

No worries mate. I know how you feel. We had to put one of ours down about 2 months ago. She had been struggling with asthma for over a year . Was off her food and water and lost a heap of weight. She was just hiding under the bed.
Sorry to hear of your loss. We lost our little dog last June & it still hurts like hell so I know how you're feeling mate.

I don't know if anyone else had the same problem but I couldn't log on to this site the last couple of days.
Yes it was an outage happens every so often but this one was a bit longer.

I still can’t get in on my IPhone only iPad.

Realise this isn’t a training thread but there’s been some of that chat here and the training-watching experience I had this morning didn’t really warrant its own thread IMO.

Went out to Redfern, the fellas did yoga no onfield session. So decided to go to Moore Park on the way home, show the kid the SCG, check the progress of the SFS etc. anyway happened upon the roosters walking out for their session and stuck around for an hour or so.

I’d heard over the last year how professional the roosters run their training sessions compared to ours but if today was anything to go by it doesn’t seem so. They were all focused enough but our sessions seem to have more organisation and direction.

All their attack looks to be going through Keary, not sure who the guy in and around the ruck with him was, maybe Keighran (sp?) but it was all Keary. Very focused on middle third running, inside balls with Radley playing a big role in that.

Suaalii looked first grade ready to me, took me by surprise on what I’d seen if him last year. Grown physically.

From Jed off the Warren re the scum!

When asked for ID by officers while at Tweed Heads, Haas replied “:) the ID, I don’t need to give you ID. You got a badge on you and you think you’re a :)ing tough :). You put my family in jail you :)s.
He told one of the officers: “Don’t come near me bro, I’ll f **king :) ya, on my mother’s life I will.



“Get the :) out of here bro, get the :) out of my face or I’ll take all of you on myself you :)wits.”
Haas looked at the female officer and said: “Why you looking at me like that? Cause you’re a woman? Cause you’re a woman and you think that I won’t touch ya?”
