Rugby Test Matches

Might as well. I have a rudimentary understanding of the rules (I know how points are scored and so on), although I don't get what's a good tackle and what's not, and if you asked me what was a fly-half or a lock I couldn't answer you, and I still don't get scrumming.

Nonetheless, rugby is fairly entertaining, and this weekend I will be in front of my telly watching the test matches. I'll be rooting for Jonny Wilkinson and England as they take on Australia.

rugby was my life for about 3 years. i dated 3 rugby guys and were friends with my schools team. learned interesting drinking songs and drinking games because of those silly rugby boys.

zulu warriors. your first tri= strip down naked and run around a block drunk as hell after shooting the boot.

Haha, hopefully tomorrow night the Wallabies will be even more severely humiliated. Go New Zealand, get our Bledisloe Cup back!

And I was very pleased to see NZ defeat South Africa last week and retain the Tri-Nations.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
