seeing as collingwood`s in the form of his life with the bat and can bowl a bit do you think he should play? if so in place of who!!
i personally think we should drop giles and play him.
my reason being the aussies can bat against nude spin all day so why bother
any one else wanna be a selector?

That's a tricky one as Jones has done ok in the past, can you drop someone after one bad game?

I can't see them dropping Gilo on his home wicket, which leaves Hoggard and Jones.

To be honest I didn't see any of those tests in the Windies as I was In Oz.

I suppose if you drop on eof the bowlers for Collingwood you can then fit in Reid as his runs wouldn't be as important.

Could be an option especially as Vaughan & Pieterson can both bowl useful offspin - lol Pieterson actually started as a spinner not a batsman!!!! :scared:

Seem to remember Reids dropped a few in tests as well - all keepers drop catches - jones already has a better record with the bat then reid - what about Prior to throw another name into ring
