Hmmm....problem is we're somewhat over reliant on our play makers - Jones and Peel. If they're injured then we're buggered. Plus theres a risk that Alfie might be ruled out for good by that neck injury and we still don't have a manager/coaching team. It takes a while for a manager and a team to blend - unlikely that we'll get back to where we were for another couple of years.

I remember when the RWC was in Cardiff - got the afternoon off school to watch the opening ceremony!

And so did Munster. So that means that it is an all-Ireland semi-final in the Heineken Cup and we will definitely have one team in the final! Very Happy

Don't think I have seen this thread before.
Never been that into rugby, although it is like a religion in NZ. I don't mind watching it but would never play it. I always follow England but not much interested in the domestic game here.
I was actually lucky enough to get a ticket to the All Blacks v Lions test in Auckland last year. Amazing atmosphere, more Brits than NZers, a shame our team was so ordinary and got thrashed. I can try and post some pics if anyone would be interested.

alright, gotta find them first. Won't be great quality as I only had a disposable camera for it. I'll find some and scan them in.

yeah I think I have pics from cricket matches I have been to over the years. I'll try and hunt some out, although got some already on computer from Aus v SAf that I went to in Melbourne this year and NZ v West Indies 20/20 from recently. I'll post a few in the cricket thread when I get round to it.

Ok here are a few pics from the Lions test in Auckland last year.

Awesome atmosphere, so many brits and we were in the middle of loads of them which was great. Too bad we had such a poor team and got thrashed.
Again, not great quality as they were only done with a disposable camera.
