    dublin 16 … a magical place, where residents are not south enough to know rugger well & not far enough west to know the diff between shamrock rovers & celtic

          Ha. Ken Clarke of all people is your new Satan.

          Be hilarious to see what name you draw next out of your pedo paranoia hat

        that’s not what I meant, actually

        and it’s a fairly juvenile and unfortunate attempt at an insult

            whereas you’re a southsider with an unpleasant air of arrogance and uninformed opinions

    The 6 Nations.
    ~Where only 4 teams of the 6 teams actually matter. (Italy & Scotland making up numbers)
    ~Where only two of the six teams (England & France) actually matter in “World” rugby.
    ~ Where “World” rugby is irrelevant in terms of Word sport.

      Hmm. I disagree with your opinion. Ireland ranks 3rd in ‘world’ rugby. France 9th. France USED to be brilliant but not so much these days.

    She gives us a succinct, sincere intro to the Six Nations. I especially liked her showing us the wooden spoon (already kitchen-used) at the end, but I hope she’ll post up another video soon showing us how rugby players position the ball for penalty kicks. She can tog out in Blackrock or Old Wesley gear for the demonstration, and should be a big hit with the lads.

        That tog-out gear is ok for Sunny Australia. Long shorts and heavy cotton underclothing are required for the soggy conditions in our west European climate.

        Jim. is ” misogynist” your new word of the month. You’ll soon be in Hons English for your leaving cert.

          I’ve got great notions about myself and my brain and sense of humour, but I always laugh at Mrs Brown’s Boys. Hmm.
