    Re: go in, get in

    Get in implies some kind of effort while go in doesn't.

    Re: go in, get in

    PS
    There's another use of 'get in' that is too obscure to be worth including on the reference pages; it is applied to a batsman playing conservatively for a while at the beginning of an innings:

    A lot of English batsmen get in, but then don't go on to make a big score.
