Not much in currency here in Qld, macca, that I can recall. If you had said knickers rather than trousers, maybe more self explanatory.

Today the buzz expression is "put your big boy/girl pants on" which of course has a completely different meaning.

I don't think so Scamanda ,   I do put painful experiences out of my mind .

I'll have a look at my diary on Racecourses, Golf courses, Dinner courses, &
Inter views.    I'll let you know if a Mary is written in my color code.

That tells me what color they were wearing , in case they left a pair in the glove box.      .

It'll be 5-0 again, Root sealed that by electing to bowl first on the Adelaide Oval Highway. That will go down in history as an even more stupidly bone headed decision then Hussein sending Aus in at the Gabba all those years ago.

I find it odd so many people complain about KP yet say nothing about the blithering moron Healy.

I see Lyon feigned injury, to deny the poms another over to bowl. What a surprise, an Australian cricketer behaving like an aarse ! And been that way for a very long time. It is that kind of game, folks.

Not much comment on the cricket ..   Paint drying = whatever.

WHY would Smith not enforce the follow on .      Appears stupid.

The Aussies only have to bat for half a day macca.

Then send the Poms in and win the test before the day ends.

Runs aren't a problem and the bowlers are getting a rest.

KP is our best weapon.

In the Brisbane test , once he told the channel 9 viewers the Aussies had a fragile batting lineup the game turned our way.

Ian Chappell and co. changed the culture in Australian test cricket. Even the schoolboy cricketers are into sledging these days. OK if it has a little humour attached. I was walking past a suburban cricket field where a lower grade fixture was being played. A fielder at long off was yelling abuse at the batsman from that far away, The next ball is skyed toward him, looking like a catch, he lurches forward a couple of steps, falls flat on his face before the ball arrives. I laughed my guts out. The don't call them boring cricket farts for nothing.

I’ve played a few seasons of warehouse cricket over years and what you say is 100% correct. I played in quite a low grade because, well, I was gelati.
Every game you get muppets trying to sledge the entire time. Newsflash guys, you’re playing C3 winter warehouse (light years from the test arena), you’re as gelati as the rest of us!

The bowlers aren't going to get much rest Scamanda .

I would love to see the Poms get up and win.

Smith won't sleep for a month if they do.

Australia enforce the follow on last night they probably have this Test wrapped up by now.

I've actually enjoyed watching it a bit, which is great because I've had no interest in a game I loved for years. I saw why I turned off cricket some years ago during a rain delay in adelaide - they showed some old Ashes games of the 80s/90s and then one game of the team of deodorant/ hair-product selling tools of a few years ago.
I don't mind this Oz team and I think it's been interesting test cricket, even if England has been weak.
