Matt is fit, did a sprint session before we all watched Timmy Cahill beat up Japan.

I'm sure Jonno will have Winnie filming all the important games Smiley

Local station PTS (from what I can gather is their incarnation of SBS) is providing coverage (not live) of the semis and finals.

The 6 team limit (and the reason its Mixed rather than Open/Women) is because the World Games (like the Olympics) is a frickin' huge event.  Everyone wants to be there - 1000s and 1000s of athletes, officials, etc.  So they have to draw the line somewhere.

All five non-Aussie teams played at Poultry Days (I think - Ruebs will confirm) the other week, so they have the "familiarity" factor of both themselves and their opponents.

or simmo have we all now have watched them play on film and they havent seen a thing??

crocs prefer an ambush attack... slowly cruising up with just the eyes and snout out... then BAM!

I'm a bit disappointed they're not having fly casting this year.  That was a highlight from Duisburg.  At least there's still fin swimming.  Damn that's going to off.

That has got to be some of the most inappropriately cheesy music I have ever heard.

What was the calibre of the Alumni team? They got chumped...

That said, US got a little sloppy in the second half.

I've played with two of the alumni team, Ryan Purcell and Rob Dulabon and they are both top notch players that any nats team would gladly have by their side.

Rain wasn't too bad.
Very dodgy fields day 1, but day 2 was OK.

Salt Crocs won all 3 games against the Irukandji: (score in brackets is half time score)
13(7) - 11(3)
13(7) - 8(5) (after a 0-3 start)
13(7) - 5(3)

Crocs were without either Dowle, and Ash.

26 days to go and the Crocs are looking good.
