Massive schoolboy hit from new Edinburgh signing Nasi Manu in 2006

I grow quite weary of your constant drivel, on one hand in other threads you start to come across as a fairly normal person....

Of course I can see the toughness of the winger, that is why I give him credit.. it's also what makes that silly idiot of an 8 look like more of a pathetic moron.. He put in a brilliant hit, then for some unknown reason he thought it was wise to shove the winger?? Then not only did the winger NOT react, he also got up as if nothing happened... thus making the 8 look like a weak minded fool.

It's not a case of don't rub someones face in the dirt (which didn't happen here by the way), because we all get involved in niggly shit time to time, it's a case of someone having an overblown reaction for no reason...

Again, POC parading around after winning a "who's taller?" competition against Peter Stringer...

Could Matt Giteau hold the key to Australian World Cup success?

Right, I see what you mean, they do tend to play a very B team leading up to the big tournaments, so I'm sure as you say, it'll be very 'convenient'.

Like you said, it is quite frightening how backwards this apparent forward step is.

Massive schoolboy hit from new Edinburgh signing Nasi Manu in 2006

Mate, what is pathetic is a number 8 that's probably 3 times the weight of a small winger thinking he's putting on some sort of show....

Had the 8 weighed the same as a bag of sugar I could understand him mouthing off.

I've never felt it particularly necessary to make myself look like a cock after smashing a little guy... Now if a little guy smashed me like this and acted like this, I'd get up and have a disagreement, but I'd still give the guy secret credits for putting in a big hit on a big guy (if I say so myself)...

It's like O'Connell dancing around like a rooster because he's just won a height competition against Peter Stringer...

Marcelo Bosch last gasp Quarter Final penalty sinks Racing Metro

I can jump on the conspiracy wagon here... he said it in English and Racing are French players, so they didn't understand it... favouritism.. :D

My goodness, I didn't read it carefully enough to spot the info you've highlighted... As you said, what a BS call.. leading up to the world cup...

You highlighted the mixed race not being counted, thus increasing the clear definitions between each races - You can't just be a group of rugby players, you have to be sectioned into your groups... I don't know the numbers we have of black/white/pacific islanders/mixed race/asian RD fans (sorry if I missed your race) - frankly I don't care what race people are, as far as I can tell we're all fans of the same sport and even though our opinions can vary, it's nice to know about the 'community'...

Also it says "In every team" - now to me, a team is the 21 (?) guys turning up before the game, is that the same definition? Or is it indeed the squad? So throw that in with the no mixed race comment and I can see it now '7 token black guys' sitting at the back of the classroom wondering what they're doing there, why they're wearing a green jumper with a springbok on it and questioning the point of throwing an egg shaped lump to each other, never going to see time actually playing the game, but it's ok, they're 'black black' and they've been included.

Totally agree, I mean 'Beast', JP Pieterson, Habana (more?) were not picked due to their colour, they were picked due to their skills (I believe)...

So credit was given where credit is due. I totally agree with your comment about players picked because of their colour.. I mean who really wants to be given the sympathy card. You're picked because we're up to 6 skillful black players, but we need one more, you're not really good enough, but you're black. Interestingly though, they didn't say how many whites in the team? I mean 7 non whites, well what if you pick 8 non whites, is that deemed wrong?

Like you said, hearts are in the right places, but it's certainly not the best move.

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 8 of Super Rugby

Was Horwill red carded for hitting his own player in the face/forehead or the swinging arm on the opposition player... or both?

Julian Savea and Eben Etsebeth slap one another while smiling

You reckon a World XV at the moment would feature Etsebeth?

I'm not sure who I'd have as second row and I haven't thought about a World XV in a while, but EE wouldn't have been an obvious choice :/

Julian Savea and Eben Etsebeth slap one another while smiling

Why because he's bigger than everyone else?

What about the likes of Peter Stringer, he used to put the boot in on many players on the ground.... Bully?

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

Hahaha. That's a pretty poor song choice...

I suppose "It's a victory for rugby" to have such a wealth of international players on the scene etc..

Got to admit the RWC does give us a overwhelming dose of excuses - injured players, beat you earlier, beat you after, beat the team that beat you...even though we lost.. etc..

Medals for all..
