That was until today (well, strictly speaking it's not actually the England cricket team she's pleased with, but (Sir) Alec Stewart).
Alec has come out fighting over the decision by some counties (Kent and Middlesex to be precise), who have decided that (brilliantly) they want to have some Australians in their county side.
This is not a xenophobic rant. These aren't just any Australians. These are THE Australians. Cricketers who actually play for Australia.
And for some unknown reason, these counties think it an excellent idea to invite them over to adjust to the cold and rainy climate and get their eye in for the Ashes.
This is wrong.
NWG has her own plan for the Australians this summer:
Only on the 7 July shall the Australian cricket team be allowed into the country.
They shall not be provided any warm up matches.
They shall be only allowed to stay in a bed and breakfast 100 miles away from every venue and no SATNAV will be provided.
They shall be subjected to fire alarms and car horns throughout every night of their stay.
They will only be provided black pudding left out in the sun for several days for every meal for their entire stay during the Ashes.
Cricket balls will be repeatedly rolled in the direction of all the fast bowlers when they least expect it.
Car doors will be slammed on to batsmen's hands at every opportunity.
No sun cream will be provided.
Equipment, including lucky bats/shoes/pads, will be confiscated from their luggage upon arrival.
Some may call this sabotage. NWG considers that this might ensure that England will have a fighting chance.
Only might though.
