Rugby

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.

Poor use of the term "Brits" but you're forgiven for being a dumb Yank although fuck the Haka anyway. Disrespect is making noise when the kicker is placing his kick, not singing a song during an outdated farce. Disrespect is Graham Henry's comments after the Umaga/Mealamu v O'Driscoll tag fight. Get real.

Or, as one of my friends put it, "why do we have to stand there while they do their little dance?"

Let them do their thing, but to expect the other team/ supporters to just stand there while they do so is farcical.

I agree on all points except for being noisless for the kicker. Some traditions about what is apropriate during kicks differs by country. See the classles asshole using a green laser pointer in Argentina during the Rugby Championship (prev. Tri Nations)?

Yeah, they boo and whistle in France and have a good laugh about it. Culturally specific I guess.

I have to agree. While I enjoy watching the Haka, it should not be presumed that the opposing team does or should. It is rugby, mock them, get in their heads early on. For the rest of you, there is that roundball, barf, game; where you squirm on the ground like you are mortally wounded, then when you feel you are properly rested, you can get up and run faster than you had been. It's Rugby, donate and move on.

Hmmm last I checked its the United Kingdom - and British is the common name for dem folk. Why don't they
give Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland back to their own people, then I'll say English, when referring the folks in the stands @ Twickenham

My dumb Yank uncle was traveling and struck up a conversation w/ someone from Northern Ireland who stated that he was not Irish, since he carried a UK/British passport.

Can't we all just get along

Now back to Rugby....

We can all get along but you would be more correct and garner better feelings from the English posters if you realized England fans sing sweet low sweet chariot and the brittish only play/tour as a unit every four years.

I doubt there were many Jocks, Taffs or Paddies at Twickenham. Never mind, was only pulling your leg.

On to rugby, Wasps (my old team, back in the amateur days) got their first away win since October 2011 today and have gone fifth in the English Premiership!

Great to see them coming back to some sort of form and with such a young and promising team.

Oh please, take your political bullshit elsewhere.

As for the Haka - fuck the Haka, why should the All Blacks get away with trying to intimidate the opposition every fucking game.

For any RaboDirect/ Heineken Cup and top 14 fans...I found two youtube channels that have games up a day after they are played. One is Jammy Twang and the other is Lelostream.
Im pretty stocked on this because I was paying 160 a year for foxsoccer2go
