Well then boyos?

What do you think? Wales are strong favourites for this weekend.

I'll be wearing a bloody great leek and cheering both yourselves and the English on to Victory! I hope?

Be safe!![/b]

In twenty years [and more] people will be saying who will win? Does it matter,lifes too short to worry about a stupid game, the results of which change regularly!

Well, what else is there to worry about? All manner of terrible things, but whats more enjoyabe than worrying about rugby? Not many things, which is why people like to talk about it and watch it. There may be more to life, but for those of us into sport we're happy enough with that. What better way to spend your life than playing games and watching others play games. Its all good fun.

I think Wales will get tonked by the French and I think Ireland will manage a victory against the English. It doesn't seem like global karma will be sat right if England go to Ireland and win after all that trouble at the venue, Croke Park, many years ago.

Come on Robert!
In this dismal atmosphere of high taxes and high crime, mumble celebrity culture and throwaway lifestyle, its difficult enough to get any joy out of life...................To watch a classic international of rugby and to lose oneself in the aurora of thousands of avid fans cheering on the game..........can't be beaten.

Turn on over the weekend and watch it.............

Be safe!

No doubt Mr Resident, you are refering to what took place in 1920?

Bizarre that, as a distant relative on my grandfathers side was a present that day.

A sad occasion indeed, and even sadder when you look at the reason given for why they did it.

Then again, perhaps its a sign to show how far the politics have come from those dark days, that the game can still be played in such a hallowed place?

Be safe!!

Well Beast,after watching the news,and what happened to some Manchester United fans, being nearly crushed,and then tear gassed,I think there are more enjoyable activities than getting wound up over a game!

Well then!

Looks as if Suggs is going to have to be content with trying to beat the English, because based on both performances ( English and Welsh ), neither are going to have much chance of beating anyone else ( maybe the Italians )..............So it looks as if its going to be a fight to avoid the wooden spoon.

Be safe!!
