Or else reintroduce it in it's original form. Quite a bit of skill required to catch a ball and make a mark with your heel.

Re: Photos of players for Wikipedia?

Get yourself a Trilby and a trench coat. Put a card with Press written on it in the headband. Sneak onto the pitch with your camera that has a flashgun the size of a satellite dish. Take photos of the players exiting the tunnel. Having said that you'll have to be quick changing the flashbulbs. Apart...

France is indeed closer to home. Two years there. Two years in SA. Two years in Japan, Two Years in Oz and then home. He has a plan people and he's sticking to it.

Hit the nail right on the head there Rum. "Yes the kids enjoy it." That, believe it or not, is the whole point of participating in any sport. You also have to remember that these kids are starting out on a rugby journey and you are expecting them to be playing like seasoned pros. Really?

Re: Scrum time

Have to admire Rory's restraint during the match commentary when asked what the problem was with the Irish scrum. He praised the strength of the english instead of calling them a shower of cheating baskets. Sadly the ref was the only one who wasn't aware of what was going on.

Re: Scrum time

The overhead shot of the scrum after england's first penalty clearly shows the loose head boring in. I could've parked my car in the gap between the loosie and the hooker.

Re: scrummaging..........whats the point?

Some of you may have forgotten that the laws of rugby apply to everyone from the All Blacks down to (insert club name here) 4ths.
