    I know you're all football fans, but I'm sure some of you follow this sport too. What was the quote? "Football is the Gentleman's game played by thugs, Rugby is the thug's game played by Gentlemen." Anyway, the fantastic start to last week's Wales vs. All Blacks game. Shame Wales collapsed so badly in the 2nd half, but at least they made NZ raise their game. Tomorrow they scalp the Ozzies. Come on

    My mother went on a date with Phil Bennet in the 60s, but he wasn't her type. If he was, I wouldn't exist. Imagine that!

    We saw Merv the Swerv filling up his battered Peugeot at a Mumbles petrol station in 1990. He was clearly slightly brain-damaged, almost tramp-like. Mum said, "that's Merv the Swerve. He was once great." It was heart-breaking.

    Dangerous game.

    i have to be honest craner. wales are not very good. if you think that was the all blacks stepping up their game you're mad. if you'd seen the tri-nations games you'd realise that. wales run around like headless chickens. they've got no real power in the fowards either. they're good anough to beat england and the rest of the 6 nations but thats it. they wont even beat australia and australia are a bit shit.

    Charl on tenderhooks, bless her. Gav did well in this game, to be fair.

    That's just what the All Blacks said, but you're right. They're getting to be the best Northern team however, as long as Gatland sticks around. We have the best collection of players in the North. Even you Kiwis would kill for a runner like Shane Williams and a kicker like Stephen Jones. We're after you!

    shane williams is a lovely player but he has neither the pace or the raw power of any of literally 7 or 8 kiwi wingers. and do you really think henry would want to swap jones for carter? gatland seems to be a good thing however and id be happy to see an extended period of welsh dominance in the northern hempishere. 6 nations is shit without a strong wales side.

    Plus our captain, Ryan Jones, is way cooler than your robot. We have spirit, whereas your team is an ex-colonial machine.

    i wonder if it is possible for wales to get a position where they can challenge the south... the elvs will help them no end i'd imagine. all that running.

    i like mccaw actually. to accuse the all blacks is being robotic is fairly one eyed. who is best bale to handle an unstructured game? who is best able to take initiave? who is best able to depart from a gameplan or come back from a mistake? its wales and the rest of the north who are the overcoached robots. the evidence is conclusive.

    And don't forget Hook. 2 world class kickers in 1 team.

    Anyway, any England apologists?

    and willaims didn't run rings around anyone. wales got smashed without new zealand entering 2nd gear and you know it. hes too slow and too puny to make any impact against nz. looks great going up agsint english fowards though, i'll give him that.
