    The Brumbies will play the Radiers.... in cricket. What the hell, a 20 a-side cricket match? That is f***ing whack! Rugby or league would bring in way more crowds.

    Actually a Twenty20 cricket match (I figure that's what Eric means) against the two clubs would be awesome! It would be cool if it were televised. Some of those players have represented us at state and national level in cricket. Can't wait to see how Greegs does!

    I'd watch if it were soccer. Or touch rugby. Cricket doesn't seem to grab my imagination. No contact except for the bat and ball in cricket. Unless they did what Lance Cairns did in the 80's and throw it at an Aussie batsman's head when attempting a run out. The Aussie batsman looked totally unperturbed when the ball hit him on the back of his neck.
     
  6. What a strange, but good idea! 20/Twenty is a great idea I can't wait for the internationals.

    There's nothing wrong with cricket but who wants to watch rugby players try to play cricket ie who wants to watch bad cricket?

    Many Rugby Players mightve gone preety far in Cricket if they chose it ahead of Rugby, just look at Jeff Wilson...

    That's what I more or less said in my previous post. There's alot of pretty good cricketers there. It's just for a bit of fun.

    Well there you go. A two game series with one match of union and another of league would have been better.

    Let's dig in IRB archives and find the law of the game in the 1870's when there were still 40 players on the pitch, 20 per team, and no schism yet between League and Union.

    I see u are as out of date as your name implies.

    It is common for the Brumbies to sell out BRUCE but the Raiders are struggling to sell out Marnica(sp?) oval in recent times. Go with the flow mate, go to Bruce and support the Brumbies or watch the Raiders at the small venue and embrace the loser game. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If you think for a minute that if the Raiders had been even half as successful as the Brumbies in recent times that they wouldn't be more popular you are kidding yourself mate.
