Apparently Warne had been told to bowl like mud in the county matches leading up to the test, so as far as the English were concerned here was this bleached yob Ocker bowling leg-spin of all things, what was there to worry about? And Gatting was one of the best players of spin in the world at the time.

    First ball changed everything. I (and everyone else) thought the keeper must have knocked the stumps with his knees because that ball had gone a foot and a half down leg side. Nope. Welcome to Warne's world, he was the literal gamechanger.

    It’s one of those ones where you don’t see it for ages, and when you do it’s even better then you remember. Then better again on the replay.

    He late said it was a bit of a fluke - because, well duh, of course you can’t plan for everything to align perfectly like that. But to even have the ability to send it up there with the possibility of that happening…

    Could be some low scores in their too though but same for all wingers.

    I just can’t think straight today I’m very low and shaken up by this Warne news.

    It's messed me up all morning too mate. Losing one of your idols completely out of the blue with no sense of closure is really really tough. I watched a bit of the Fox news tribute this morning and they said something like it feels like we've all lost a mate today regardless of whether you knew the man or not.

    I went for a walk this morning while the sun is out in Sydney and definitely helped clear my head.

    Look out for each other and hold your loved ones tight, life's too short and it's not fair <3

    I'm really tempted to take most of the cheap WFBs and CTRs including Koula and loop them all to get decent scores. Koula should be first in if any of Manlys back 5 go down. Speedster backs at Manly seem to go alright when Turbo is playing to set them up.

    Helps to fund everyone else that I want.

    RIP Warnie, never watched him play but dad would always show me highlights. Heartbreaking.

    Anyway on Russel, If i get him ill probably play him in my starting 17 which is a risk, dont want duds clogging up a space on my team unless i think theyll score high enough to play.

    This is why it's important to give people their flowers while they're still around. RIP Warnie, the one that got me into Cricket.

    Saab and Garrick are great examples of the Turbo effect.

    Saab 2021 average without Turbo 10 (0.1 tries per game) vs with Turbo 39 (1.5 tries per game)
    Garrick 2021 average without Turbo 46 (0.3 tries per game) vs with Turbo 57 (1.2 tries per game)

    This hooker situation is driving me crazy. I need a second one and nothing mid priced really grabs me. Do I go Grant and Uto (or similar price FRF) or Haas and Clarke?

    We all grieve in our own way. Also, there is so much shit going on with the floods here and The Ukraine so perhaps a little perspective is required. It’s a sad day, and I feel for his family, but there are so many people doing it so tough right now.

    Fair call though mate.

    You can be miserable about things out of your control or you can just sit back and count your blessings, recognizing what you're able to do that others cannot.

    I was grateful just to be sitting in a cafe the other day and enjoy a coffee knowing that out there in the world like Ukraine, they have had those simple pleasures of life taken away from them.
