Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Plagiarised from Mark Steel: “My favourite part of the rugby is when 20 huge blokes link up for a huge cuddle, the whistle blows, they all get up, the referee explains for 5 minutes why their cuddle wasn’t right, they all listen like cherubic children, and try to cuddle properly.” Pedant Alert! The...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Also an aside, but is there a more over rated spectacle in world sport than the haka? Why do opposition players give it the time of day? Totally agree, I don't see how it can be traditional either as they change it every year. Unfortunately, World Rugby have decreed that the opposition must show re...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Ireland are being overwhelmed, noticeably slower than the Kiwis. On the rare occasion they manage to get into the opposition half, they make a handling error or concede a silly penalty. I notice Ireland's hooker is wearing a white scrum cap. They're playing with a white ball. Where England's defenc...

Anyone else feel a bit sorry for poor Hooper? Nah me neither.
:lol:

The expression on his face when Watson intercepted, shame :wink:

Great to beat the Aussies in any sport, even better to send them home.

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

We have had the better discipline, more control, better balance to our play and have stuck to our game plan. Australia have looked a bit of a shambles, quite honestly and these are the reasons we have won this match Australia have looked like a shambles because we have made them look like that with...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Yeah, its a shame England didn't react to hosting the tournament the way Japan have! Makes life interesting for Scotland :lol: It is a shame that Argentina & Italy have dropped off, but Italy are changing their style of play and will hopefully come back even more strongly. Argentina do have good coa...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Should make it like the cricket WC and just have teams in it that can actually play Rugby and have half a chance of making the QF. Even allowing for the Japs coming good, and Argentina being a much better team than a few years back, it's still likely to be England/Scotland/Wales/Ireland/France/Aus/...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

I thought we were the 11:30 game for some reason. Arse. Oh well, BP win and qualified for QF. England at least seem to be building momentum, hopefully we can carry that into the France game, top the group, and put ourselves in a good position for Australia (I assume) in the quarters. You didn't mis...

Hooper is a prick isn’t he? A special player quality-wise but he’s a prick. Aussies lucky not to have been carded.
He's a horrible snide little ****, thinks he's the new Richie McCaw but isn't as good.

Should definitely have been a card for his challenge on Biggar.

As for Ben Stokes being English then that makes me completely Scottish . :D 22 years in Wales - 32 years in Scotland . I reckon you should go for it mate, you'd have good chance of getting in their football team :lol: It was only a lighthearted response to Puff , mate - I know that the Welsh Footba...

Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

Just as a matter of interest, how many Japanese players do Japan have in their rugby team? As they lined up for their national anthem, I counted about 6, including two named Moore and Thompson, good old, traditional Japanese names those Michael Leach, their former captain, is New Zealander with a F...

Great result for Japan today. Can really see it going big over there
Great performance too from what I saw, which was basically the 2nd half.
I enjoyed their desire to run from anywhere, good to watch. 8-)

Close. Pereira delivers and Mata leaves Fredericks standing at the far post but can't get a decent connection. Lucky West Ham.
Is that three times this season that the opposition have missed chances (sitters) like that?
