    Butler goes in typical fashion, just needlessly hanging his bat out at one to nick it to their WK, how many fucking times do we have to see an England batsman do that? It's a fucking joke, you never see an opposition batsman do that, we have to bowl the cunts out properly and work for it, work them and the ball really expertly to get the nick

    Woakes and Robinson currently in England trail by 4 runs

    I was at the game yesterday and Root and Malan did a great job in wearing the Australian bowlers down in very warm conditions. With question marks over the fitness of Hazlewood I thought today was looking like more of the same but it's all changed in this morning session.

    Australia's batting is just as fragile as England's so with Anderson and possibly Broad coming in for the next Test it should be an even series

    All out, 8 wickets for 70 odd runs today, typical England

    Australia need 20 runs after lunch for an all too easy first test victory

    I think that's what's known on this forum as "a right good bumming."

    Stuart Broad now saying he could have played at the Gabba.
    Farcical.

    Cummins and Hazlewood are both out for the second test. England should win this one

    Australia 148-1 so far on the first day.
    Just hoping the night time will see some swing from the England seamers.

    Stumps on day 1 with the hosts 221/2.

    Butler dropping Labuschagne twice with the second being an absolute sitter late in the day.

    Good day for Australia but the slow run rate means they haven't gotten away from England

    England's best bet is a draw, I feel. Not sure how our batting is going to stand up, with a large total to follow.
