Australia's worst sporting week?
« on: June 26, 2010, 02:38:02 PM »

Not only has Australia got a new, foreign Prime Minister, but I reckon this week must be close to the worst week in it's history for sporting calamities.... %) %) %) %)

Beaten by England at Rugby Union, knocked out of the Football World Cup and leathered twice by the Poms at Cricket...... %% %% %% %% %% %%

Never in it's proud history have disasters like these been recorded... :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Come on you Aussies, pull your socks up!!   {-) {-) {-)

O you silly boy! Fancy setting yourself up for the fall you may well have at about this time tomorrow. I can hear the larrikins sharpening their billabongs already.....
Anyway, shouldn't you be supporting your own country's team (Espana)?  %)

Thanks for your support FLJ...but we convicts from OZ are tough >>:-( any sporting quip comments are like the proverbial water off a ducks back  :embarrassed:

We eat coal dust & Uncle Toby's oats for breakfast  :o
We eat iron ore & Vegemite sandwiches for lunch  :-))
We have roasted kangaroo + garlic & Tassie avocado + red wine for dinner {-)  {-)  {-)  {-)  {-)

BTW...many places in OZ don't have that electricity thingee so we don't get to see any sport loss..... ;D

Well I thought the Aussies did real well at the football, considering.

Thought the Kiwis were great to. :-))

Barry, I just know you were trying to get a rise out of me  O0 , so here goes.

Rugby: We won the first game and in the second, Australia scored more tries but beaten by a Jonny Wilkinson goal (penalty this time).....again  >>:-( Redeemed ourselves last night with a good win over Ireland  :-))

World Cup: Out, but not disgraced...bigger footballing nations than us have gone ignominiously (France, Italy)

Cricket: These are only practice games, and the Aussie boys are just warming up for the main event later this year. Plus, after a 6-1 thrashing of England in the ODIs last season, we didn't want to humiliate England further  %) {-)

Barry, bigger sporting disasters have been recorded, the cricketers were beaten by Bangladesh a while back  :embarrassed:

Dave (FLJ) FYI,

"Billabong" = pool of water  O0

"Kookaburra" =  A bird who laughs at people trying to sharpen Billabongs  :o

"Boomerang" = a curved stick thrown at annoying people, and something that Charlie Drake could never get to come back to him  {-)

"Larrikin" = a person who tries to sharpen a billabong, but gives up and jumps in said billabong in frustration - while dodging boomerangs  %%

Personally i thought England showed massive signs of improvement in the second test. But he fact remains that Matt missed a sitter from straight out in front which would have seen the score finish 23- 21 to Australia which in my opinion means Australia lost the game rather then England winning it. Besides the NZ Maori then went on to show England how rugby is played when you actually have a front row. <*<
I just assume that sometimes my Northern Hemi friends watch different games to me. Since living in England their rugby team has never lost a game, it just happens that sometimes their team end the game with a lot less points then their opponents.. In the same way no English man ever talks about the "Ashes tour of Oz in '07" as though it never existed. {-) %)

Whenever Australia have a bad day on the sports fiend the rest of the world needs to look out because they ALWAYS come back harder. ALWAYS.
