Well, my Aussie pals have all been very, very quiet on the topic
My husband is a cricket fan - and so is my sister in Aus. She was crowing after the first test match... she went very very quiet on emails after Sunday's result.... She was so sure that they were going to be beaten by the Aussies that she was really over-the-top in her predictions to my husband.
Whenever England play football at international level (soccer to some of the rest of the world), they take delight in using a Scottish football chant, which goes, 'Bonnie Scotland, Bonnie Scotland, we'll support you evermore, we'll support you EVERMORE' (tune is rubbish, but words fire up the players!) but changing the words slightly and sing to the opposition 'Are you Scotland in Disguise' (cos they think they beat us all the time!) Interestly, the English supporters were singing that with those very words to the Aussie supporters!
Goodness, AussieG and MrsMac - what on earth are Australia going to be able to boast about now...? I mean, nasty ol' England have taken your World Rugby title AND the Ashes, all in one year (oh and my husband tells me that the English WOMEN's cricket also won against Australia this summer!)
Now, I do hope you know that, as a Scot, I am a totally unbiased bystander in this matter.
