Re: Sick of the RWC 2015 already

Aaah more trophies coming Australia's way.

Re: 8weeks to go

I'd move to Woolston. You just need to be prepared to spend a bit on your house and you'll be fine. There's also Opawa or Hillsborough (urgh!!!) which are both fine areas and can get you out to roads...

Re: Lions 2017

That'll be a 5 week holiday sorted when they're over. I'll enjoy seeing them test themselves against the super rugby franchises. Much better for these players than going up against a provincial like...

Re: petty crime

That and my job in London got me out of Sheffield. Love the city but Parsons Cross, Darnall, Wybourn and Page Hall are just no go areas.

Re: Watching the Cricket?
