Thought someone coming from where you do would have a better understanding of their sins, itbt.

I had and still don't have any intentions of turning this thread into a discussion about the relative merits and shortcomings of the two rugby codes, so "8-)" to you. Whatever your thoughts on rugby league as a sport are, it in no way justifies nigh on 100 years of persecution by the RFU.

True, but supporting the RFU is kind of like sympathising with Nazi Germany
Missed this 1st time round. Could not agree more. :)

Not all about the game but about the RFU and the people.

Thats why myself, an Englishman who started appreciating Union a little in SA will support SA.

Im part of the AOBE crowd Im afraid

Pretty much what I thought would happen. Our kicking from hand & set pieces was the difference. I doubt the crims will be quaking in their boots tho.

Oh, & Piper & Pie: I told you so:


Even if I did mistake Tonga for Fiji... :ph34r:
Listen here Dale, how was I to know that England was going to start to play rugby after 4 years of total crap? Hmmm?



International Captain
No. They were the only team who beat them. Don't forget that England nearly lost to USA
