    The All Blacks choke again :bash: .... the only thing that eases the pain, is knowing Australia lost as well :drinks

    Re: c'est trop bon

    craig, was thinking the same thing but vica versa, what happened at half-time, someone slip the ab's some sedatives? Aus got beat fair and square in the forwards, but the french revival, the nz brainspas attacks and some harsh ref decisions and voila, see you in 4 years, all the best, mark c

    = it is too good

    Re: c'est trop bon

    Personally I am looking forward to a Scotland, Fiji semi, and Scotland pipping England in the finals.:pigs:

    But here comes my medication.:morning:

    Now the boot seems to be here to stay in the game of rugby, a team of scientists from the University of Bath and the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff, have analysed the kicking techniques of professional and semi-professional rugby players to see which technique is most successful.


  6. Rugby World cup

    Hands up all those whose home nation is still in?

    Who'd have thought England would beat Australia and then France would beat New Zealand? Never mind, there's always 2011 :empathy::D:D:D:D:D

    Re: Rugby World cup

    I think that the only pressure of england and france was in the beer that they drink:dizzy:

    they didn't be favorite;)

    my only question before france vs nz was :
    how many points we will take in the bag :D

  10. Tragic loss

    I would like to be the first to offer my sincere condolances to our antipidean friends.

    It must be hard to see your national team get chucked out of the world cup by the English.

    Please know that you have my sympathy and respect. You played a good game and it's a great shame we won't meet in the final.

  12. We so seldom get to gloat. I'm milking it for all it's worth. :p

    The cricket is a wound which is still too fresh. Although i maintain that we won a moral victory.

    The English do it best with funny shaped balls.

    An arsonist never wastes five matches. ;)

    Not bad sofar, I thought messrs. isaacs, russell and co. would be bombarding this thread with painfully anglocentric gloatings. What's the chance of another wet rwc final. I'm going off forum now till after the final now and maybe, heaven forbid, a lot longer. Go boks!
  21. !

    Give us a chance buddy, its only just 8 am!!!!

    Anyway, on with the anglocentric gloating

    England = Brilliant

    France = Lost :D

    the great difference is here :empathy:

    Just one more thing (before I turn it off so I don't subject myself to the ravings of the english, can you imagine the editing wikipedia's copping) ............................ Craig wants it known that if, heaven forbid, the english somehow miraculously pinch it off the boks next week, that should any comedian walk into the boot camp #4 wearing anything that resembles the english rugby jersey Craig is going to personally eject them (Craig, i'll man the dias and hold the laser pointer for you bro) and if any cretin tries wearing the Les Bleus top, well, I haven't personally witnessed it but from ex latrobeites they tell me it's a sight, eyes rolling back, frothing, limbs flailing, STJ's supinating and pronating (KK, unheardof force magnitudes mate) ... talk about favourite Youtube , get your camera phones ready

    Admin2, for the sake of goodwill to fellow podiatrists, make an exception and add this post onto the 'Boot Camp #4' thread, they'll be no excuses then

    and by the way, does anyone know the collective noun for a group of podiatrists?, mark c
  24. Yes beer. Its like lager but better. :drinks

    I though bergerac was a tv program.

    Mark you crack me up!

    Oh PLEASE would somebody film that and you tube it!!! The idea of craig doing the incredible hulk transformation when someone walks in wearing a shirt is just fantastic!!

    A clutch of podiatrists? A gaggle, a posse perhaps? Or if in oz and we win the final possibly a torch bearing angry mob!

    Can i take just one more opertunity to say

    WE WON!!!!
  25. W J Liggins

    W J Liggins Well-Known Member

    Yes Fred

    English beer is excellent (you should try Old Peculier) and it makes you play rugby better too. We also enjoy Australian whine!

    Mark, I can't understand your logic. You should be supporting England because if you have to lose it is better to lose to the eventual winners. If the Boks win, you will have effectively lost to England, S.A., France, Argentinia and possibly the ABs. If England win you have only lost to the champions.

    Not gloating, hoping!

    Well, Mark (Russell), England may lose in the final but if they do, the champions will have lost to a great team. If they win, they are the only team to be back to back champions.

    Scotland (who?) just lost.... Hence some Scots sycophancy towards the Boks. At least the Argies - who must be the most improved team in the competition - retained some pride, but then, as Dr Johnson said, the finest thing about Scotland is the high road to England.

    Enjoy the game but remember, it's just a game.

  31. Ah, now Bill....don't be like that. I was just kidding - honest! You can rest assured that I'll be cheering the wee boys on this Saturday, just like our Dear Leader Comrade Broon and his little Darling.... I have the John Smith's and the flags all ready! :pigs:

    Poor Fred though - he must be gutted and coming so soon after this....

    Ah well, Mark (R), I suppose we should remember that the victors at Aginincourt were (possibly) the first united British army.

    Mark (C). If you allow the possibility of defeat and state that it's only a game beforehand, then you can afford to wax philosophical if you get creamed!

    All the best

  34. Sure the following should reside in the 'Joke' thread but as they're on topic...

    Four surgeons are taking a coffee break. The first one says,
    "Accountants are the best to operate on because when you open them up
    everything inside them is numbered."
    The second surgeon says, "Nah, librarians are the best; everything inside
    them is in alphabetical order."
    The third surgeon says, "Try electricians. Everything inside them is
    The fourth one says, "I prefer New Zealand Rugby players. They're
    heartless, spineless, gutless and their heads and bums are


    A man meets a friend and sees that his friend's car is total write-off and
    covered with leaves, grass, branches, dirt and blood.
    He asks his friend "What's happened to your car ?"
    "Well," the friend responds, "I ran over Richie McCaw".
    "OK," says the man, "that explains the blood... But what about the leaves,
    the grass, the branches and the dirt ?"
    "Well, he tried to escape through the park."


    Q. What do you have when the All Blacks are buried up to their necks in
    A. Not enough sand.


    Q. What's the difference between a dead dog on the road and a dead All
    Black player on the road?
    A. There are skid marks in front of the dog.

    Given that we are becoming - very properly - international:

    "Que sera sera"

    Tonight Fred, my son is coming home and we'll be celebrating with good, honest English beer........... or maybe crying into it.

    Good luck to both teams, let's have a great game.

    A little bit of Scotland will be at the finals

    Middlemiss Embroidery in Jedburgh has rushed to the aid of England's Rugby World Cup final team when earlier this week seven of the squad wanted their footwear emblazoned to mark the occasion in Paris. Working frantically since Wednesday mid afternoon, the customised boots with RWC 2007 on the tongue along with players' nicknames or initials on the side are now ready for action. Jason Robinson, Olly Barkley and Nick Easter chose to have their initials embroidered; and Mathew Tait (Taity), Lee Mears (Mearsy), Simon Shaw (Shawsy) and Mark Cueto (Cuets) opted for their nicknames. No word on Johnny the Boot Wilkinson, but I guess he will try to mark on the game.

    I still fancy the Boks to do it.

    Hot off the Press
    Australian Rugby fans were delighted to read today that after their early departure from the World Cup, couch John Connolly went to the local tobacconist to buy 20 Players. :p

    not at all, just the pleasure to talk with you :drinks

    what I can say when the French team has been beaten by Argentina ?

    nothing, just it's "une branlée maison bien sentie dans les gencives" :hammer::hammer:

    that I can translate it's deserved

    have a good game an a good day (with a glass of beer), now for me it will be just herbal tea :bash:

    Fair do's the Boks. The best team in the competition won, even though the ref. had little concept of the laws on obstruction.

    However, for our antipodean brotherhood who are basking in reflective glory (since they have none of their own);

    We few, we unhappy few
    We band of brothers
    For he who shed his sweat with us tonight, shall be my brother
    Be he never so base, this day shall gentle his condition
    And there are gentlemen now abed in Australia
    Who will feel themselves accursed they were not here
    And hold their manhoods cheap, when Bok and Pommie speak
    that sweat with us
    on Webb Ellis day

    With sincere apologies to the Bard



    P.S. It WAS a try!
