Reports of a promising future all rounder for England emerged today with the birth of Harrison Alexander Bradman Ralph - first son to Matthew & Jodie Ralph.

Harry was born at St Mary's and weighed in a fit 6 pounds 11 ounces at 2:38pm 14 Jan 2003.

Jodie is doing really well still. She is really enjoying mother hood which is a good thing as a baby is not just for Christmas or in this case your Birthday (It was Jodie's b'day on 19th).

Early reports leaked to the media have Harry at 12-1 to make the England team even though his first 8 hours in this world have consisted of six and a half hours sleep with the balance being a bit of feeding and a bit of whinging (true Aussie).

When Nasser Husain was asked to comment he mistakenly thought the report was about his team during each day of the first three tests in the Ashes tour this year. Given the similarity in make up of the day there is little wonder he was confused. When Nasser's mistake was corrected he was heard to comment "well if he is Australian there is a certain chance of him making it - they are winners!"

Harry will be looking to make his debut for Pacific sometime in the season ahead.
