Rugby A Game For Gentlemen


Progressive Republic of Cork more like…


Paddy’s Red Caravan


Paddy’s Reprobates and Cunts ?


Racististisms from a Strayan!!! :face_with_raised_eyebrow: Meh!



That pass cost me £13.50. The Mike Brown drinking game: when he passes, you buy a round of shots.


Well, good win for Ireland and congratulations and by far the best team in the six nations. England were a little better, but still a huge gulf in ideas, invention, speed, creation, patterns etc… England will get beasted in the World Cup unless Eddie J starts to actually pick a team with some notion of creativity and speed.

The France / Wales match was much better to watch and if it wasn’t for the French kicking being crap, Wales would have lost.

Players who should be binned from the England squad before the world cup (IMHO);

Haskell, Farrell, Mako V, Te’o, Hartley, Wigglesworth.


Something’s not right here…


Hopefully they will stay up!


Hmmm, not sure about this. The change of name is certainly ripe for a piss-take.


I hold my head in shame… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


After yesterdays points and try fest at Fylde (33-81), enjoying the bosh of Racing Vs Munster.

Fylde £15 for an adult, really, in Nat 1? FFS.


Sad news.


Means something else in Brighton…Very odd choice.





As a Bristol supporter, I feel the shame. Bears, wtf. :scream::expressionless::roll_eyes:


One from your private collection. This one titled “Jack et Jim”.


Sadly not, I raped it from the Internet. :thinking:


Not just in Brighton. The Old Market area here boasts the Bristol Bear Bar.


Eddie the joker, Cameron Redpath, really, are you serious? He’s 4/5th choice inside centre at Sale. He’s not that good, Luke James at Sale (who is 3 years older) is miles above him in every aspect.

No Don Armond ** or the other Curry** who has been great this season. At least one prop short, in a country with hard fucking pitches, yeah right, fucking joker. 4 flyhalves, wtf. Where is Marcus Smith? Is he now 5th/6th choice, downgraded from 3rd choice?

I would like to say I am surprised, but Eddie the joker has form for this sort of thing with Australia.

If you want to rest your 1st team for the summer before the WORLD CUP, then fucking rest them, not just half of them.

Dan Robson has been the best England qualified 9 for two fucking seasons and finally he gets selected. So hard flat pitches with a light ball in SA and we don’t select Christian Wade**? Nathan Earle has been very average and needs at least another season to establish himself.

At least Mallinder is not touring as he is in shocking form this season.

** Denotes - Fucking Shockingly bad selection.
