    Great memories there- I’d add the struggle to undo the knots afterwards when it was sodden and caked in mud. People also lose boots frequently- in my day you’d have been more likely to lose your foot.
    Of course we ‘ad it tough. We used to have to get up out of shoebox at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with our tongues. We had half a handful of freezing cold gravel.....

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

        Arrogance of World Rugby is breathtaking.....sure the Scots are tools but a reasonable counter proposition would be for somebody to charge RWC for bringing the game into disrepute for poor scheduling and contingency planning. And instead of breathing a sigh of deep relief that they got away with it, by being able to play the game and have it be an epic they double down on their stupidity. They could have taken the high ground here and sniff about the Scots being more worried about a rugby game than peoples live but no they have to stick in the boot so nobody else will ever call their judgement into question

          Maybe World Rugby is trying to send them homeward (to think again)?

            A Scotsman walks into a bar... There's usually a Englishman, Welshman and an Irishman there too, but they're still at the Rugby World Cup...

                England looking good vs oz

                Comment


                  Great game so far, Oz have been exciting, but england lethal. Is there a way both Cheika and Jones can lose?

                    England offside a lot

                      Oz taking a lot of risks

                        Second try a killer

                        Comment


                          Yes, taking a lot of risks and england just picking them off. Hard to see any other outcome than a clear win for England. Great work by both backrows

                            Good front row battle too. I can see Sinkler being carded.
