Appears to be part of lesson number 1 on how to deal with the Press.
Seemed to be very natural for Ruan and P3 too. I suspect normal expression in SA.

Re: Absent Friends

We’re in Berlin and just about to raise a glass to Stew McDowall who sadly passed on 16 June, having missed his funeral service today. He was the first to properly welcome us into the UR family and away trips, in particular, will never be the same again. It was a pleasure to be sitting next to him ...

Re: What annoys people????

They learned 'Look' from Muller. He was a master of dealing with Qs and I have no problem with them picking up on that. Lessons became learnings in the US.

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

What's wrong with wee groups of four as before? Answers on a postcard... Compared to the URC, this is a relatively straightforward system. Each...

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

Aye,.played plenty against Lancs. But I believe Sale is Cheshire.

I see Scarlets have the Cheetahs in the Bic. Some joined up thinking could allow them to play 3 games in SA. Won't happen, like, but it could.

Re: Next season's Heineken Cup

Many TV sets now have a feature called PIP (he has done well for himself since his days here). Apparently it stands for Picture in Picture, and allows you to view a second TV source superimposed onto the one you are currently watching. Like a wee box in the corner. Anyway, using this facility, one n...

Re: Absent Friends

Aye, sad to hear about Stew. Always a big smile and cheery attitude.
Always had a suggestion for a bar worth trying or a landlord who was prepared to do us a deal.

Re: Top 14 Rugby

Defence is good. I suppose, but both sides are happy to make the tackle and regroup. Very few rucks.
