I think we can be fairly sure about the Rugby World Cup

After this weekend's Rugby, it looks like the only Northern Hemisphere team with any hope in the World Cup is France, and they do not look that good, but at least they are at home. If only Mr Ashton had had more time to prepare it may have been different for England, but I am not that sure about that even!

What did we learn from this Saturday's Rugby?

I think that from the Rugby matches played yesterday, I learned the following:-

  • England have no hope of retaining the World Cup
  • France are unlikely to win the World Cup
  • Unless they play better than they did yesterday, Wales and Argentina may not make it past the first round.

    Oh well, roll on 2011

    Brassed Off

    I watched the film about a colliery brass band last night on the telly.

    I liked the music and hated the pro-NUM propaganda. It then occurred to me that the useful idiots who supported Arthur Scargill and his band of miners who were mining coal that nobody wanted to buy were probably the same twats who are now trying to disrupt everyone's holiday air travel in the name of reducing so-called man-made global warming.

    If not the same people, certainly the same mindset!! Hardly logical, but then these idiots aren't!

    Bugger, bugger, bugger

    Saturday August 11:

    The England Rugby Union Team did not play badly, but still managed to lose 15-21 against France. It will be even more difficult next week in France.

    As usual, the England cricket team were crap, and will almost certainly have to follow on!!

    What is happening to this country? Oh I know, it is being run into the ground by a bunch of self-serving, incompetent buffoons who call themselves a government! And yes, it does affect sports, as school sports are in so much decline.

    Oh no, girlie ball is starting again

    Once more, the overpaid, under performing girls blouses who call themselves Premiership Footballers will be starting to preen themselves in public tomorrow. A message to all real sport fans, "Watch Rugby Super League or wait for the Rugby Union World Cup to start!"

    England thrashed Wales 62-5 at Twickenham yesterday. I know it was most of England's Probables against only half of the Welsh probables, but a year ago, England would have even lost to them. Still, the real test will come next week, against France!

    For now, it will be fun conversing with my Welsh colleagues at work for the next week!

    Foot and Mouth

    Oh, dear. The new outbreak of foot and mouth is a bit close to home. I do hope the government do not make such monumental cock up of dealing with this outbreak as they did with the last one!!
