Joyce to get an England start?

The Sunday Tribune yesterday got indignant yesterday on behalf of Ed Joyce, when an English sports journo expressed surprise that as an Irishman he had to qualify on a residential basis to play for the England cricket team. If he does make it into the squad, the selectors won’t be choosing a token Mick. This season, it’s England who are doling out the text book lessons in how its done. England’s gain will be Ireland’s loss!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
