    I’m thoroughly enjoying this, lots of faves mixed in with quite a few new to me. Please keep them coming.

    as i know how much of an impact that could have on his career/life

    Not as much as the potential impact of a bus. If he was in the wrong, he should never drive again.

    Whilst I didn’t agree with what Dodson said in the press conference, WR’s stance seems somewhat heavy handed and the demand for a letter of apology just seems ridiculous be very OTT.

    I think at the time most including Scotland fans felt that the way the SRU went about their complaint was far from ideal. However, it was understandable that the…[Read more]

  • Last month in Wales, in the Italian restaurant, the waiter was chatting to my wife in German. I asked for the bill in Italian. When he replied in English saying he was Turkish , I switched to Turkish and asked how much the food was, much to his surprise.

    That’s all very clever, (well not proper clever but even my English is too poor to think o…[Read more]

    Shit, there’s loads. I think it’d be far easier to name the albums that have been ruined by duff tracks

    Me too, I can’t think of an album I would choose to listen to, where I would consistently skip a track.

  • Why is this the only thread where you’re not allowed to be judgemental? My first instinct on hearing of a 90 mile round trip commute is that that is not a good thing. Some people may have little choice, but most people in that situation appear to accept it with reluctance, whilst they could have done more to avoid the situation.

  • pollution is higher, there is less greenery – people want to take their children for walks, they want green space for them to play

    An element of irony there though, since the pollution and lack of green space is due in large part to the number of motorised vehicles.

  • I don’t think you’re gloating, I think that’s an unfair assessment. I do however think you’re viewing this discussion through privileged glasses and that’s skewing your opinion. It can be simple, sure, with the right circumstances, but you cannot blanket-apply that thinking to everyone.

    You are likely correct, but I think there is far more cred…[Read more]

    the next Tipuric is in progress!

    Or the next Rhys Carre?
    I was disappointed when he wore a blue scrum cap in the last game. They should wear different colours to make it easier on simple folk like me : )

    Gatland should pick yesterdays England 15 and beat SA in SA just to piss of Jones!!!

    My favourite was someone ( ??Gauss) stating that Jap-an would not beat ireland or scotland!

    Harsh, you haven’t even quoted whatever I said ; )
    Without going back to check. I did not forsee Japan beating Ireland at all. The Japan v Scotland game was too close to call for me iirc. I certainly would not rule out Scotland losing to any other team…[Read more]

    It was fortunate not smart. They had no control over it.

  • gauss1777 replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    I think Wales had a great tournament, but that was in large part down to the excellent coaching. From a very experienced coaching team. It feels inevitable that we will lose some ground in the near future. England and SA have 15x the population of Wales, for every World class player Wales can provide they should have a team full.
    It would be nice…[Read more]

    does that put Scotland ahead of the curve for the 2020 6 Nations?

    NO – ~Scotland are on a downward path right now under Townsend and we will not improve till he goes.

    Wow, no equivocation there! I always thought you were a fan of his.
    How much of a downward path do people see Wales undergoing in the near future? Am I right in the belief that S…[Read more]

    It was an enjoyable tournament and I’m not quite sure what I’ll do with my time now. I may be the only one though who actually prefers the 6 Nations tournament.
    A wee congratulations from me to Josh Adams, top try scorer.

    With Ireland, Wales, Italy (?), and to an extent England all about to have new coaches, does that out Scotland ahead of the…[Read more]

    It’s a pity none of the South Africans would make a combined 15.

    😂 harsh,too soon?

    Hard luck England. It would have been great to have won, but getting to a final, comfortably beating Australia and NZ – quite an achievement!

  • gauss1777 replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    That’s it I reckon. The Boks have strangled the life out of us. Without the open spaces we’re devoid of ideas.

    That’s worrying, there’s no way Wales would mentally concede defeat at this point. England have more than enough in their bag to pull this around; they just need the mental strength.
    imho of course

  • gauss1777 replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    That England assault on the S.A. line, there were at least 5 penalties, 3 neck rolls and Faf intentionally offside. How that wasn’t a yellow I’ve no idea.

    Garces must be good to get the shout, but SA appear fortunate to have had him for their past two games.
