Swanny – take the beard and red coat off now. This is serious stuff now, you know, your proper job. You don’t want Hussey to sleigh you again do you? See, we can all do it Swanny. All right Belly – it wasn’t that funny.
Okay lads, we all knew it was too good to be true and that we were due to cop one from these bastards. Okay, all of us but Finny knew it, and even he’s learned now. Oh stop yawning Finny – you do want to play don’t you? Yes – I know Eoin, I know.
Now we don’t want to be too down about Perth – after all plenty went well. We got off to a great start. Not you Tremmers, me – I won the toss. But then we let them get away from us in the late order and we didn’t bat well. Obviously there was some good bowling by Mitch and co – I know I got two unplayable balls – but some of us gave it away a bit easily didn’t we KP? And it didn’t look good on the fifth morning either – jeez, half of you looked like you had pull-along suitcases rather than bats with you. Fourth morning was it Eoin? Really?
Anyway, like Nathan Hauritz, what’s gone is gone, so we need to concentrate on the next match. There’ll be a big crowd in – half of Melbourne will be there. Really – I think literally half of Melbourne will be there, so we need to stand up and be counted. Not you Bres, sorry. They’re still the same lot we hammered at Adelaide. Okay – except for Katich. And North. And Doherty. And Bollinger.
You know that wasn’t helpful.
