Rugby is boring, but at least the players are not pussy enough to put tons of pads and helmets like on American football, which is a pathetic sport.

yep me too
in fact the first year i had a season ticket was that 92/93 season, when the scarlets won the double and beat the world champions australia [test strength team]
what a great year. my particular favourites were trouncing swansea in the cup semi at the arms park.
beating cardiff in the arms park when colin did that rebound kick thing
and that fiday game at st helens when alan 'santa' reynolds gifted wayne proctor a try. alot of my friends were swansea supporters at the time and i'd had to put up with loads of santa nonsense cos he tackled emyr lewis at stradey. so for him to make an arse of it and give the scarlets a try was especially memorable.

YMLAEN LLANELLI!

Yes, i was at the arms park semi when proctor "did" mark titley, class, made him look like a twat and i was also at the final. Those were the days indeed. hell of a season that. Wasnt that the final where emyr lewis kicked the ball for Ieuan to chase ala the england game.
I hate these bloody osprey fans who have sprouted up all of a sudden, convinced that henson is god. didnt do much with the lions did he? well, neither did anyone else....
it was only a fewe years back that llanelli scored 120 odd points in 2 games against swansea, and to think i almost felt sorry for them.

he did yes. not long after that i attended the wedding of steven barclay who used to play for swansea. all the jacks were there titley, aled williams, stuart davies, mike ruddock, robin mcbryde [before he saw the light], ian buckett etc.
Anyway, i sidled up to titley at the bar and announced myself as a scarlet supporter, and he said ' i bet you feel like a right fool being here amongst all these jacks'
to which i replied
'not as much as a fool as you felt when proctor turned you inside out in the semis last season'
he wasn't impressed

emyr lewis dropped a goal to win the game against neath.
i remember neath players whinging, [crying some of them, {adrian varney}] that they had lost and didn't deserve to.

i never felt sorry for swansea when the scarlets tanked them. henson and darren thomas sent off in the first 20 mins, highly amusing.


you are correct, henson is the most over rated player ever. the way the western mail go on about him and shane williams makes me want to puke.

remember ospreys fans are in the main neath fans, say no more
i have several ex swansea fans as friends and very few of them love the ospreys cos of the brain dead neathos who go to watch them.
they tolerate the ospreys and fell jealous cos my team still exists.


simon easterby was pretty good for the lions [not that i am biased]
so was dwayne

oh yes of coarse our players performed in the lions tour, people like shane willaims and henson make me sick. although i did say i'd have hensons children when he kicked the conversion against england.
steven jones was 100 x better than henson during the grand slam. why does henson get all the attention?
im gonna go to stradey a few times this season, hopefully they will hit some kind of form.

We had a rugby mad PE teacher at school, and every time it rained so PE was cancelled he would sit us down and make us watch the famous Barbarians vs All Blacks game from Jan '73, where Gareth Edwards scored that wonder try after the ball had been passed between half the team. I've brought that game on video since, and still love watching it from time to time.

Favourite player - well I used to play full back, so my favourite player was always Andy Irvine, the Scots full back who got 60 odd caps in the '70's. Fantastic kicker who popped up at the end of moves for his fair share of trys.

I'm not into rugby at all - living in New Zealand you either love that it's practically a religion or hate it because you get tired of hearing about it. I fall into the latter category.
That said, if there's a big international thing on of course it's All Blacks all the way! And it can be fun drinking beer and watching it with my boyfriend, especially when I can annoy him by asking silly questions every minute or two :-)
