The Rugby Thread
 
One of my favourite times of year :rock: :rock: :rock:

Chazza 01-02-13 10:44 PM

Where's your money?

Fredo 01-02-13 10:48 PM

Haha always forget that Cormack is a staunch rugby fan, one of the few in here. :D

Chazza 01-02-13 11:01 PM

Allez les bleu's Nigey.

ChesterDave 02-02-13 12:04 AM

England or France. Winner of the match takes it.

Not a big rugby fan myself but I do like this time of year, the atmosphere is something else.

Welsh people go mad for it, my FB page is flooded with people going nuts for the Six Nations, especially women they're mad for it.

Wish I was in to Rugby as much as I am football. Football could do with taking a look at Rugby and learning a thing or two about discipline and respect for one another whether you're a player, a fan or a manager.

Proper hard bastards playing a game in the proper manner. Think football needs to start incorporating captains being the only ones who can speak to a ref when something kicks off, think it would transform the game instead of everyone showing vitriol towards each other.

ChesterDave 02-02-13 02:05 AM

Not sure how much you respect an opponent you punch in the face when they ain't looking, or gouging. Respecting the ref maybe but they rugby refs are competent.

Football refs are largely jumped up buffoons with a Napoleon complex and putting them on a pedestal will only inflate their undeserved ego further.

More than the players attitudes need to change to fix football. Top to bottom reform needed but nobody is going to jump off the gravy train so it won't happen.

Looking forward to England v Wales in Chester. Normally rammed, hope the Chester Wrexham football crowd keep away though.

England will probably win it this year. :(

I'd love if we won it in what might be O'Driscoll's last Six Nations, but I can't see it happening.

But then again , you never know.........

Think it's too close to call this year.

That said I'm amazed that Ireland are destroying the Welsh at half time in Cardiff.

These sorts of incidents are rare hence the hoo ha when they take place and the sanctions are extremely severe.

Liverpel 02-02-13 03:58 PM

This is a great game. Ireland were cruising, 30-3 up at one stage but Wales are only 15 points behind now.

My nerves are shot. 20 minutes to go.

RichC 02-02-13 04:15 PM

Excellent match, Welsh have had their chances this half as well.

Chazza 02-02-13 04:16 PM

How did Wales not score there?

RichC 02-02-13 04:17 PM

Yup, should be 8 behind. No chance they'll make this deficit up now

Liverpel 02-02-13 04:21 PM

8 points now with 4 minutes left. Surely it's too late for Wales?

RichC 02-02-13 04:22 PM

Not enough time left for them

Liverpel 02-02-13 04:25 PM

O'Driscoll awarded man of the match. Rightly so, he was magnificent again today.

kingfunk 02-02-13 04:30 PM

Chazza 02-02-13 04:56 PM

Come on England!!!!

Buzzo 02-02-13 05:04 PM

Come on Scotland!!!!!!

Buzzo 02-02-13 05:09 PM

Hmmm. Less than encouraging start. It could be along afternoon.

Chazza 02-02-13 05:12 PM

Fuck sake.

Buzzo 02-02-13 05:15 PM

What a break from Hogg :rock:

Looooonnnngggg way to go.

souliv 02-02-13 05:17 PM

Great result for Ireland Brian O'Driscoll what a player fantastic attacking play in the first half and amazing defending in the 2nd

Bring on England in Dublin next week

Chazza 02-02-13 06:00 PM

Chazza 02-02-13 06:12 PM

England playing some good stuff now.

ChesterDave 02-02-13 06:34 PM

England you useless fucking diseased cunt faces. Stop acting like a bunch of cunting amateurs.

Chazza 02-02-13 06:36 PM

I take it you have some money on this.

:haha: Ireland all the way, England to finish last! :crackoff:

RichC 02-02-13 07:45 PM

I foresee another wooden spoon for the Scots

Buzzo 02-02-13 08:22 PM

I thought we played ok, without ever looking like winning it. We will beat at least one of Wales, Ireland or Italy at home.

Solid in every position other than midfield where Lamont and Scott lack guile. Number 10 a worry as ever.....

I think our back 3 can do some damage though. Hogg was electric, Visser is class and Maitland looks a player.

Cormack74 02-02-13 10:24 PM

Two cracking games. As good a start to the six nations as I can remember.
