[quote author=Uncle Bernie link=board=general;num=1065599532;start=60#72 date=11/01/03 at 14:48:30]<br>You're not wrong there. We were shite. I feel that unless we make some selection changes we will surrender the trophy soon (after beating Scotland next week).[/quote]<br><br>I'm sorry but the aussie weren't shite. What you saw was two outstanding teams. I rate O'Gara above humphrys, O'Gara is better play maker. But Humphrys is a better kicker and i too believe we would have won with him on the pitch from the start.<br><br> I don't know why everyone is rating france. They've yet to meet good oposition. They will next Sunday. I'm a realicist guy and i believe we can beat the French. And then it will be the English in the Semis. And i believe we can beat them too.

Today I tried to get 1 ticket for one of the semi-finals being played the weekend after next. The cheapest seats were $150.00 which I was prepared to pay, but there was not one ticket left, unless I wanted to pay $300.00 for the higher grade tickets. A-Grade seats are about $450.00. I'll be watching them live on TV instead.

Yes, its easier to follow when you know whats going on. Most people prefer what they were brought up with. The fewer rules in soccer probably do explain its universal appeal, but the lack of many scoring shots is what I find hard about it.<br><br>Rugby has too many rules at present thanks to those ever-present administrators (overpaid old farts who forget what its like to play the game, if they ever knew). A lot of these people have never come to grips with the idea that rugby is now a professional sport at the higher level, yet still a tribal game at the grassroots level.<br><br>The main difference between rugby and gridiron is that in rugby the ball must be passed backwards and when a try (touchdown) is scored the player must place the ball over (or on) the goal line rather than just running across it. Apart from that its just big boofy blokes running into other big boofy blokes......and a few other fiddly bits.<br><br>Rugby players don't wear as much protective gear as grid iron players do. Ask Mungo what he thinks of that.

hmmmmm. all i have to say is - whats happend to wales to cause the sudden improvement ? anyway they are out now - lets hope they keep the form up - i never liked to see wales in the sorry state they where for the last 10 odd years. <br><br>ogara is a dead loss - ireland got all their points when humphrys came on at 1/2 time against france this morning same as in the australia match - i rest my case . ogara just does not look comfortable with the ball im afraid - still, he is young, then again, when he speaks on tv he comes accross as a bit thick - thats not good - though i recon hes just a bit shy - which aint good either is it ? <br><br>on current form its looking like a FRANCE - NZ final - what the f**** are england playing at ? if they play catt from the start next sunday there may be hope. can you believe it - mike catt still playing - and better than ever.<br><br>will somebody tell jason robinson to stop laying those league style eggs from twixt his legs when he goes to ground - i find it friggin anoying. <br><br>mungo

Both are looking hot. What a final that would make!<br><br>I got a ticket for the England v France semi-final on Sunday (the other one was sold out). It'll be the first time I've ever supported France for anything.

[quote author=MentalTossFlycoon link=board=general;num=1065599532;start=75#86 date=11/10/03 at 01:57:07]So the semi-finals are England vs. France and New Zealand vs. Australia...<br><br>Jeezis: by comparison, the finals will be anti-climactic.[/quote]<br> ;D<br>There may not be much left over to contest the final after those local derby's are finished.
