View Full Version : Glorious Ashes winners follow the rugby team

I can't claim to follow cricket, or even understand it, but as far as I can gather didn't England become world beaters recently? And then, as has happened in other sports, stumble at the next wee hurdle?

Just wondering seeing as I seem to hear about the ashes as often as I hear about '66 or Sydney (that one reducing after last year for some reason)

No, they beat the Australian national side in a test series....

I wasn't aware that they had played a single test since giving the convicts a good thrashing.....:rolleyes:
