    I'll help, we only have 12 for this RWC, but we need them because we only have four super rugby franchises to develop players and choose from

    South Africa - 1
    Zimbabwe - 1
    P.N.G - 1
    Tonga - 2
    NZ - 3
    Fiji - 4

    But that wasn't the question and the answer was cricket

    Umpire changes for last 2 tests:

    "Wilson won’t be involved in the remaining two Tests, nor will Chris Gaffaney who had seven decisions overturned at Headingley."

    "Veteran Marais Erasmus and rookie Ruchira Palliyaguruge will be in charge for the fourth Test at Old Trafford, starting Wednesday. The third umpire will be Kumar Dharmasena.

    Erasmus will also be in charge for the fifth Test at the Oval, while Dharmasena and Palliyaguruge will swap roles."

    They need to look at getting umpires on to the panel on a part time basis. Some umpires donít go on to the panel due to family commitments. Peter Willey is a good example. One of the best umpires I have seen but couldnít go full time. Simon Taufel retired early due to it.

    The same is happening to Rugby the tenures of refs on the panel will get shorter. Wayne Barnes is retiring after the RWC and he is only 39 at least. George Clancy, Johnny Lacey and Nige are finishing up too so we are going to end up with a bunch of rookies being fast tracked to test matches. We saw what happened to Barnes at a young age during a RWC. There are a lot of poor refs in Super Rugby and the Pro 14.

    Disappointing as the end of last test was (for us); it's on again. And who's complaining?

    Steve Smith is the greatest batsman of the current generation.

    The only thing wrong with Leach's no ball was that it wasn't Broad who bowled it.

    I turned off when Smith got caught behind and watched something I'd recorded. When that finished the cricket came back on and Smith was still there!

    I thought it must be raining (not unusual in Manchester) and because Smith was on 143 I reckoned the UK were showing the replay of the 1st test, where he was out on 144, but the ground was definitely Old Trafford still (knew it well). I was very confused!

    Broad was looking very frustrated in that spell after having Smith sky one that landed between fielders, Paine dropped still in single figures (IIRC) and just missing outside edge a few times. Reckon he would have lost it had he then let Smith of on a no ball.

    Did English cricket just die again or was it never fully resuscitated

    For mine, karma is playing a huge part in Smith and Warners success or lack of with the bat
