Today is the day

  • I am hoping this afternoon that against all odds, the English rugby team are going to awaken from their slumber and come out with only one thing on their mind - beating Ireland. No hang-ups, no excuses, so stupid penalties, no yellow cards, just a load of guts and glory. Granted, we played a bit of rugby against the Welsh, but we still lost. And how about France beating Wales last night ?

  • The life of an eternal optimist - English rugby supporters have had to be pretty tough to stick with the team since the emotional highs of November 2003, so perhaps this afternoon will be the time when we rise from the ashes and announce ourselves back on the world stage ? We shall see............

Hey Henry, now i am not one to rub it in but yesterdays game was something great, that is from an irish seat anyway..... as i read your post yesterday i couldnt but chuckle, yellow cards, penalties there were quite a few, it was an enjoyable game, but most of all it was a hard hitting, strong defensive, powerful display of what rugby used to be back in the 80's. Rugby is in danger of tv'itis quicker slicker all that rubbish. It really was nice to watch two well matched teams on the day go head to head. Keep up the good work. So we got great Bass fishing, and great rugby, sweet!

David - I love your country with a passion, but Saturday was hard to watch for an Englishman !! Gutted. Not fair that you have awesome bass fishing and a team that can walk all over us.
