    Well yes, now we've successfully choked on yet another world cup we can go back to being the best in the world for another three years.
    Still, with the immaculate Robbie Deans in charge of the Wallabies, I expect great things to emerge from our brothers across the ditch as well.

    Note: 2 free tickets to the AB's vs Ireland this Saturday courtesy of the AB's doctors' missus, bless her) Happy little Parihaka, happy happy. Expect O'Driscoll to be carried off.

    Apart from the french ( ) we have a tendency to do just that unless feeling ill. As far as I know the boys are feeling fine.

    Rugby!

    I wonder how many nations play this game.

    We do, in pockets of excellence!

    We do not do it professionally. but I would love to play rugby. being a little bit tough guy I am very interested in it.

    but football (soccer) is completely different than rugby. football is more artistic than rugby. rugby is violent. but I think I like that violence

    Football is a game for gentlemen but played by louts, whereas Rugby is a game for louts played by gentlemen.

    Sums up this country perfect I think.

    As for Football vs Rugby, I don't really care. I enjoy Football more than Rugby, who cares what some other guy thinks.
