  • Apart from when you lose to one of us of course, or anybody else. Then it is either luck (Scotland last year) or poor reffing; (Welsh slam game, Lawes offside, Barclay holding Hughes back ) At that point you whine…a lot…

    No qualms with any of those mate. It’s only 1990 I’m bitter about. 😉

  • Anyway, going back to the rugger:

    When England went into the 2003 RWC (sorry to mention it) they did so on the back of 10 consecutive home and away wins over the SH big three.

    This time round we have 8 wins out of 11 which sounds OK but 6 of those were over Australia which leaves 2 out of 4 against SA and 0 from 1 against the ABs.

    So we’re 2…[Read more]

  • a true Englishman will relish the abuse from their little brothers. It shows how much we have pissed them off.

    😆😆😆

    We love you guys really.

    (Albeit in a patronisingly annoying kind of way.)

  • Do people really expert Welsh people to support England in the world cup?

    TBH I’d be most disappointed if any of the Celts wanted us to win.

    One of the (many) great things about being English is the moral condescension we enjoy by supporting the Celtic nations whilst they all want us to lose.

  • Then of course, there’s the ignorant ones that stand out in the crowd.

    Are you calling me an ignoramus Kryton? If so, I’ll take it as a compliment. 😉

    Anyway, much as I desperately want England to win although they’ve played well and look to be peaking nicely they’re basically the same side who folded against Scotland and Wales in the 6N. So t…[Read more]

  • Flowergirl’s tip is spot on.

    I spent years messing around with flapjack recipes. One tip I picked up was that if you don’t want them to go rock hard, add some mashed banana to the mix.

    Baking paper is a good tip too.

    Ovens are all different and fan settings cook quicker too so learn your own oven. Overcooking is the death knell for flapjacks…[Read more]

    After most RWCs we go on about why the SH always win. In 2015 there were 4 SH sides in the semis. In 2019 there are only two but are we gonna be facing another all SH final?

    Wales are capable and obdurate. Will that be enough?

    England look good but they’re intrinsically the same side who surrendered two big leads to the Boks, likewise to Wales…[Read more]

    I think World Rugby needs to send the game in the direction taken by NZ and Japan and away from the boshing, attritional way of doing things.

    🙄 That’s me told off then! 😂

    Hey! Maybe you’re the exception that proves the rule?

    No offence intended. 👍

    That would be fine if he hadn’t made a few really poor calls

    He’s also made a lot of very good calls. People who moan constantly about referees never seem to enjoy whatever sport it is that they’re watching.

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

    Barnes is handling the game so we have a game. No dicking around going upstairs every two minutes. Making calls, backing himself and getting on with it.

    Shame he’s quitting after the RWC.

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

    Sometimes you just need to kick the ball down the field. Japan can’t do this for 80 minutes.

    The Boks could’ve had 2-3 tries. I think their power will tell in the 2nd half – though I hope not.

    Wales know how to win. Wales AB final I reckon

    Really? If Wales play that way again they’ll get hammered by the Boks or the ABs.

    France lost that game by their own stupidity rather than Wales doing anything good.

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

    Mike Philips saying this one of Wales best ever wins.

    Was it? They were dead lucky. They should have put France away with 14 men.

    Still, they’ve forgotten how to lose so on they go.

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

    North did well to get back and snare Fickou. He got of that sofa pretty quick!

    Luckily the French have missed a couple of kicks to leave Wales still in touch.

  • namastebuzz replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    Well Guirado is back in the starting lineup so you’d have to assume that either the players have won or a truce has been called.

  • namastebuzz replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    But of the 4 other remaining teams only Wales are capable of beating Eng or NZ on current forms

    Hmmmn. SA beat England 2-1 last time they met and have improved since then. They’ve pushed the ABs close too.

  • namastebuzz replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    Whoever wins the NZ vs Eng will be odds on to lift the trophy in my op

    Let’s not forget England’s propensity to blow big leads and that Wales and SA are still in the other side of the draw.

  • namastebuzz replied to the topic Rugby World Cup Thread 2019 in the forum Chat Forum 2 days ago

    The Irish found success with a horribly limited gameplan but once other teams sussed them out they were just left horribly limited.

    Despite England’s good performance let’s not forget the ABs put Australia away 36-0 in their Bledisloe rematch. There were enough chinks in England’s defence to give NZ plenty of food for thought.

    The ABs forwards…[Read more]

    I’d have to disagree

    Oh forgot to add – we’d certainly have scored 50 if Cipriani had been playing.
