Wales lost at home to England. Wales 19 - England 26.

I bet he's still down the pub, drowning his sorrows.:rolleyes::2fun::2fun:

IT'S ONLY A GAME!! As there are some wise pundits on here, perhaps you can tell me why modern rugby includes kicking your possession into the hands of the opposition! When I played we NEVER NEVER DID THAT, when we had possession we kept it and the opposition had the job of getting it from us.
Also what clown decided that an International should be played at 7.45 pm on a Friday night, by the time you get out of the ground, and get home it is bed-time? Glad I'm the age I am - I watched the best in the 70's!!
By the way how many London Welsh rugby club players were part of the 1971 British Lions Touring team?

What an agreeable gentleman you are Steve - yes, schoolboy errors - on both sides. The other sad loss is the singing - in the old Arms Park it was deafening. A friend of mine talked to Bill Beaumont who said standing in the tunnel waiting to go on the field listening to it, put any opposition 6 points down before kick-off!!:2fun::2fun::biggrin::biggrin:

Oz, there is a saying you don't need enemies with the friends you have, let alone cousins!
Because we allowed England to win in Cardiff for the first time in 8 years, I'm in my "be nice mode" to everyone.

TTFN

Brian

ps, the beer was excellent at my old rugby club, the company was fantastic and some memories were revived! Next trip will be the "PAST PLAYERS LUNCH" in October.

Will that mean your invited too, or just real past players.

P.S
I don't know how to have a be nice mode.>:D

As a former member of the Church choir, I only know of a "be nice mode" to all and sundry - EXCEPT when I played rugby but even then after the match both teams bought jugs of beer and "were nice to each other"!!:2fun::2fun:
Of course I may not know of any other sport where you hammered each other on the pitch and raced to the bar to buy the beer afterwards!:biggrin::biggrin:

The "HWYL" is not so evident at the Welsh games anymore and none of the players (all countries) display the passion for the game of yesteryear.
:biggrin:
Great site this - the banter is above excellence:2fun::2fun::biggrin:

(described in last week's programme at my rugby club as :-
"Versatile back row forward of the late 70's and 80's)............recognition at long last!! ;););)
PS - at the end of my playing days I might also add!

Oh Brian....the days of a meat pie and chips, and a pint or two after the match, have been replaced by 'fortified' water and Tune pasta bake.

What a bunch of limp wristed 'schoolboys' we have now.>:D:eek::2fun:

Obviously they haven't enough money to buy a friendly pint or two now Brian. They need it all to fill up the Rolls Royce.:2fun::2fun:

LookingforaslappingSteve.:)

Brian, Hi, have you ever had any enemy's, i think p risboy might be one, when he's speaking with a forked tongue saying that i tell untruths, so don't let the poor old codger down, let him think everyone believes him.

Anyway mate, we love bantering with you, don't you have any other Welsh friends on this forum to lend you some support, i think you might need extra help when it comes to that other bloke, he doesn't just banter he does dreadful stirring, unlike my self. :2fun:>:D Oz
