Poor Fiji. No energy left. Put to the sword today by impressive Wales.

I only support Safferdom to prevent divorce and to recognise the Blue Bull take over...but I think there is a difference between the way Johnson and Bakkies play (dirty) and the hard tackles our bulls boys compete with every week. Super 15 was awesome rugby again this year from the Southern Hemisphere lads. It's so different from what we get back home. Such a pity Gary Botha is too old and fat to get in the Boks side again. He's an awesome example of SA rugby's finest..not to mention Victor. Bloody JP was at the high tackles yesterday...naughty boy. I don't think we are anything like those dirty men in blue...and on that note...I have to announce I'm a London Irish supporter and let me tell you Stours is one naughty naughty little man!! Maybe it's height defiencey syndrome? Mind you Brian Lima wasn't a lot better when it came to keeping his knickers in order...he was one bad bad man when he lost his rag. 5 world cups though. Who am I to judge.

WOO HOO WALES.............yippee. More beer for breakfast to celebrate? And it's not even 9am. ooops. There is defo something wrong in my household the boys are all still in bed with major hangovers and I am devotedly attempting an almost 48 hour marathon of rugby, braai, beer, rugby...think I might have to snooze after the Ireland match.

I'm gonna fly home if that happens. Can't miss that party.
We've got a cheapo Sanyo TV and a dodgy aerial with bits missing, our other one is black and white (not by design).

Wales looking good, could be their year. I've spent a lot of time in Wales, usually in the hilly bits. I was watching From Russia With Love last night and recognised Snowdonia trying to fill in for Eastern Europe ...

So everyones predictions for the next game...close? I have a feeling this is going to be the real Ireland this morning. Working class men at arms kinda thing...Really looking forward to it as little Italy have suddenly decided to play of late.

I reckon Italy 14 to Ireland over 30...

Not at all. Why is it ok for say, an English person to want to see France or Germany fail at sport?

It's all part of the fun. England/Scotland, auld enemies, Scotland/France, auld alliance.

It's all fun.

Remind me - are you one of these people who say 'anyone but England' because then I would wonder what your superiority complex is based on...!

Given the amount and duration of yesterday's beer fest..they'll be no rough and tumble there for a few hours yet...oh I love the beast that is man! RUGBY BOYS FOREVER.


Rugby - it's a life. Soccer doesn't even come close.

I has a certain period charm to it, I avoid the Roger 'Acting Eyebrow' Moore Years though.

You put Johnson on a par with Bakkies?????!!!!! Seriously, I don't think anyone is or ever was in Bakkies' league in terms of pure thuggery
