|They are pretty cynical |

For such a good attacking team they are very cynical with their fouls.

Not saying much I know but everyone loves a melee.

He needs to bring Nolan and Edwards on and attack. Needs to be done before 60 minutes if nothing changes.
We need to score, at the moment they look like they will score again anyway. He bought those players, he should back them.
Nice bit of play from Harrison but no end product.

|Bornean orangutans facing extinction|
at 09:48 18 Sep 2018
This is really sad. I went to Borneo about 12 years ago and was lucky enough to see them in the wild but even then on the short flight across the island (about 30 minutes) you could see the forest being clear for palm plantations. Seems like it's accelerated since then and it's quite surprising to hear than palm oil is in 50% of UK supermarket products. It wasn't just the orangutans which were amazing though, all the animal life there was diverse and the pygmy elephants were amazing and also under threat.
"An area the size of a football pitch is destroyed every 25 seconds – or 146 every hour – as land is razed, figures show."
"In 16 years, 148,000 Bornean orangutans have been wiped out, and all three species are classed as critically endangered – just one step away from being extinct in the wild."
"The deforestation is also putting elephants, rhinos and tigers in serious danger, Greenpeace says, with at least two-thirds of Sumatran elephant rainforest habitat destroyed by humans, fewer than 100 Sumatran rhinos left, and only two “robust” breeding Sumatran tiger populations still alive."
Hard to blame the Malaysians and Indonesians, they are just trying to make a life for themselves. Something needs to be done though or time will run out. I fully acknowledge it's easy to say something to be done but harder to ensure something is done or even change ones own habits.

Been a quiet hurricane season but looks like maybe there is a sting in the tail:
Helene and Disruption 2 might give us some grief next week. Looks like the US are on top of their evacuation so hopefully all should be fine when Florence hits.

Into his first grand slam final in 9 years after an absolutely horrific run of injuries:
He would have been right up there with the big 4 if his career hadn't been destroyed by injuries. He actually had to change his entire backhand because of injuries.
