Poor form, dude. You've really established yourself as the dropkick of BC.

Good luck to them, can't think of any Aboriginals in the domestic circuit. Hopefully we'll see some taking up cricket. They're pretty good in the AFL scene.

Wasn't Andrew Symonds an aborigine?

No I think he's just black. I don't think Australia ever had any aboriginal.

This is a wonderful news! Awesome event. Thanks for the news, brother Brockley!
This will indeed be a historic tour of the indigenous people's cricketers of Australia in England.

Best of luck to both teams, Australia and England.
Although I will wish and hope for the Australian Indigenous team to kick the English team's buttocks!
Nonetheless, I will follow the matches with much interest.

Unapproving crap is becoming a full time job with the quality of posters these days

I think that this is a good gesture. First time an Aborigine Women's team will tour England. I read the story of the pioneers of 1868. How they were the first Australian team (all sports to tour).

That should be an honor for those representing those 13 pioneers who made that initial and set the pace for Aussie sports on a worldwide stage.

Quite a strong Aboriginal side Doggett,Scott Boland who played for OZ,Darcy Short and Dan Christian,
They playing full county sides the men's,which Bangladesh A and Ireland A didn't.
Matches should be competitive.

Their are 6/7 aboriginals on state contracts.
