I saw the 6 nations thread & figured one good ole Rugby thread should take us to the next RWC (use ur Buzzlight Year voice) and Beyond!
I used to play (wasn't a very good prop) for NYAC.
I've been to RWC in '07 (saw a very good quarters match between Eng & Oz - George Gregan's last international)
6 Nations in '02 - Jonny Wilkinson's masterpiece against Ireland
. And '04 Irelands revenge
And looking forward to 2013 6 Nations (watching the better matches in NYC pubs)
And next trip to England for RWC in '15. My buddy lives outside of London, so he better get some tix for the class.
Happy New Year to all
Lastly, my mate was at Twickenham for England v. NZ match and the Brits singing Sweet Chariot during the Haka is disrespectful. My buddy was shocked by the behavior. But I think the Brits aren't the first ones to act this way, if I recall the French started this some years back. Either way in poor taste.
