    Good one Perrin, but they need to change that ridiculous rule with the most boundaries declared the winner

    Dravid

    I would have been happy for them to declare England the winner after 100 overs based on them finishing higher on the ladder… there was no benefit for finishing first or second.

    Keep super overs and boundaries for T20.

    Someone, somewhere was looking after them. The Boult catch and the 2 turned into a 6 was just heartbreaking for the kiwis. Literally turned 1 for 2 into 0-12!

    Yeah… Boult is a little more aware and England need 22 off 7 without Stokes.

    That 4 from stokes is just a part of the rules which happens in cricket. It’s just a shame it happened in a final

    They completed 2 and then it went to the fence. that’s 6.

    Dravid

    I think technically because they hadn’t crossed when the throw was made, the second run shouldn’t have counted.

    icanseeclearynow
    Member
    icanseeclearynow

    the law states only completed runs together with the run in progress if they have already crossed at the instant the throw is released. they hadnt crossed in the second run when guptil rleased the ball hence only 5 should have been awarded

    Depends on the rest of your side, but with 13 trades (well done) you are in a great position to do what ever you like.

    He does play 5 of the last 8 at home though, so he’s not the worst hold

    Thanks unfortunately poor R and C choices and poor bye planning means I’m ranked about 8k.

    Exactly my two targets lol, Naden will nuff out when he’s cashed up to make the room for them to come in, Nikora probably becomes Ma’u when funds allow.

    Naden may well be a pod on the left, the last 20-30 minutes there go to play was kikau down the left edge. Naden could benefit from that

    Cotric looking at 3 – 4 weeks… I wonder if Ricky believes it was a spear tackle yet?

    JWH looking at 1 week

    Boffa

    I don’t think it was spear, it was a good hit that just went wrong. no malice, still should cop the 3-4 weeks though as became very dangerous.

    Apparently not, they’re fighting the charge. Surely it would be a down grade though, couldn’t get off completely.

    I thought he got really unlucky when the body weight changed. No hand between the legs like a classic spear and no intent to hurt the guy. Still deserves a suspension because it was really bad, but given the send-off and lack of intent I could live with a downgrade.

    how do you know if there was intent or not? only cotric knows

    Correct, not a mind reader, but it didn’t look like it to me. You can usually get a good idea when someones goal was to hurt the other player.

    fair enough, bit it hardly looked like he planned to pick him up, spin him over and drive his head at the deck.

    So Cotric 4 weeks if he challenges the decision and is unsuccessful at downgrade

    That’s assuming he gets picked… can’t be ideal picking up another HIA after missing last week due to concussion.

    Bali Broncos

    This is the big concern, 2 HIA’s in quick succession might have him sitting on the sideline for a bit.

    Tevega is a SC gun if he plays 80 , the problem as i have said a few times is he gives away dumb penalties and errors at the wrong times .

    He did it again this week so he can end up bak on the bench with burr starting , 55 mins he isn’t as great

    if you think he keeps 80 then get on

    Staggs also due for a few attavking stats this week imo , has looking threatening without getting the pts
