Ha ha true true- we did perform fairly miserably in the pool stages- yet look at the last two matches- i hate to use the cliche but they were roller coasters of a match- it had it's low points but the majority of our playing was really high! I just hope we have an equal if not greater level of determination and - to use the technical term- 'balls' when we face S.A - I seriously hope we do- England will be the only team in the history of these world cups to retain the title! Something all of England can be especially proud of- rather than having teh title for the most boozed up teenagers!

I wasn't aware that the Queen will be playing for our Rugby team. Regardless, South African's in general seem to be a fan of our royalty as with South Africa being such a nice place and all I can't think of any other reason they would all move here. smile

Also worthy of note is that South Africa aren't playing Britain, they are playing England. A confusing topic title indeed. Hehehe, a brilliantly lame advert too.

*Hums a certain Spitting Image sketch*

In all seriousness, I look forwards to the game. Despite not being a fan of Rugby the last two England matches were great to watch. I don't suspect we'll beat South Africa though I also said the same of France and Australia. Here's to a good match then.

-Hybrid.
p.s. I'm buying an England Rugby top if we win. For rather obvious "haw haw" reasons.

American Football is great to watch, a fantastiv game...but i still will always be a rugby fanatic...just seeing tackles without gear..and bloody men walking off the field is just great wink

Hybrid-halo...nice try at counter-attacking me razz but they were lame biggrin

Jokes man, I just hope it will be a fair game, and that there wont be any spear tackles (even though they look quite extraordinary!), and that it will be a game of rugby, and nothing else...

would love to watch the game with you guys...cheers to the ENGLISH...

Rugby definitely has a much more intelligent general level of behaviour, support and attitude towards the referee's than I have seen in any other team contact sport which is something I've grown to appreciate a lot over the past few weeks. The guys get cut to pieces and aren't complaining whereas a football player gets a tap and spends 5 minutes in amateur dramatics.

If every game were as exciting as the last few, I would probably watch Rugby with some semblance of regularity. Though really, me, sport and some form of schedule are not exactly a triumvirate. smile

Although I have very, very little interest in organized sports, and don't fully understand the thrill of it, I will admit that I enjoy filming it. It's sort of like one long chase scene, feature overly aggressive alpha males slamming into each other.


But yeah. watching sports bores the hell out of me.

Oh, and I also don't watch sports. Even hockey. And curling (well actually, curling's not so bad, compared to football, which is like half a second of playing per 23 minutes of... nothing!)

I've heard of the Dallas Cowboys, but when I think of world sport I think of the World Cup (soccer). If I think of an American sports team at all it's more than likely it'll be the Yankees.

Incidentally, if it's football, why do they mainly use their hands? Isn't that technically cheating?

I'm so pleased that they lost on Sunday. On the other hand, I suppose I shouldn't be talking, as the Philly Eagles have sucked it hard this year (except for the inexplicably awesome game where they wore the fruitiest uniforms I've ever seen and ended up winning 56-21 against the Lions).

Oh well, we're on our way back... its not every team that can suffer the loss of their best safety AND corner (and for one game perhaps one of the best running backs in the league), and have their QB be recovering from knee surgery, and still make 2-3 so far in the season! biggrin

The thing with rugby is that you can't really risk cheating, as in the next scrum you'll get your balls torn off (not to put too fine a point on it). When you're dealing with that kind of close contact sport, you have to play it straight or you'll very quickly feel the pain. razz

Let's say it how it is and be honest, American Football is the girls version of Rugby. And who named it American FOOTBALL? A silly thing to bring up but I they do play alot of hand ball in that game biggrin

Any male-dominated organised activity involving holding, rubbing, grabbing and jumping on each other, under the pretense of achieving possession of an object which clearly means less than the holding, rubbing and grabbing; followed by a healthy communal bath....just strikes me as odd.

Getting paid to take part in this single-sex orgy, to a vast crowd of jeering onlookers is stranger still.

It's not so much that, as it is because the game is refereed by several people. There's a referee on the pitch, then there are linesmen and there are three other referee's who watch via camera, all of the referee's are in constant radio contact and so most of the decisions are very accurate.

As the referee's decision is broadcast to the audience, when a player cheats they are highlighted for it.

The Eagles always bounce back after the bye week. They are gonna have to play better than they did on Sunday, but Curtis has it in him to be great and the defense is there. Reid has got to pull it together or those rumors of this being his last season could come true.

Speaking about sports and countries. I have to say that Australia has developed very good in many varieties of sports in the past years. Including soccer (for the Americans) and Football (for the rest of the world). They got into the previous world cup for the first time in .. who knows? and they did very well. They actually could of getting close to winning. Most of you wouldn't think this is true, but they did lose to the world champions Italy from a penalty kick in the 90th minute.

So yeah Australia has also picked up.

And for the people who say NFL say is the greatest sport in the world, I strongly disagree. I don't see other countries taking it professionally, if anything it's just mucking around or local towns having some fun.

Heh that's my say smile oh and British people are great except for the mean people that come to Australia and think they own the country smile

And Evman, you can't really talk. Cowboys were 5-0 until they played the Patriots. And come on, it's the Patriots. (What people used to say about the Cowboys smile) I have no doubt we end up playing them and losing in the Superbowl.

It's sad, but I know we'll make it there and then blow it like we always do. (Ah, I miss the Landry years)

Errm, Which sport would that be then? Rugby is an 80 minute game with Football lasting 90 minutes.

Don't American Football games last ridiculously long amounts of time, with waits between plays and numerous 'time outs' for commercials?

Thats why they make good funny commercials for football games. It makes it less painful, and if you go to a game(at least in Philly) everyone just gets very drunk or they just pick fights with opposing fans.

Oh well great. Are you a proponent of American football? If so, this may not exactly be the best way to promote it to people who are unfamiliar with it. It is, in my opinion at least, a very fun (to watch and to play) sport. It requires an intelligent team and relies heavily on the brilliance of a coach. It also places the most emphasis on teamwork than any other sport I know. If every player isn't doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing, the team fails.

Which is a far cry from saying we all like it. I for one find baseball dull, slow-moving, and get bored out of my mind watching it. I personally play am a laxer by spring. Lacrosse, anyone? It's the only true American sport (invented by Native Americans), but most people still haven't heard of it. It's my favorite sport because its fast, difficult, and it hurts. Please look it up if youu don't know what it is. Then as it catches on even more over the next few years, you can be one of those guys who "followed it from the start". And wow am I off topic. But yeah, there's my little rant on my country's sports.

For me one of the great things about Rugby is it's perfectly equal in sporting terms- well for me anyway- i bridges the gap between brutal sports and..well pansy sports. For example Brutal sports include boxing,UFC etc that are just terrible to watch! Pansy sports are the sort that need an extremely high level of skill andphysical fitness but not too much happens- Tennis, sprinting and football to a certain extent.

Rugby however fills in the space between them- being the perfect combination of both! It's not too brutal yet you need so much fitness and skill to play it!

Unless you're George chuter of course...in which case he just goes nuts biggrin

Lacrosse, anyone?
Rather!

One of my old housemates used to be captain of the local lacrosse team - I've watched a few matches, and it's suprisingly fun. Not a sport I've ever bothered to follow, particularly, but fun nonetheless.

Plus, it's a sport where for once all those silly pads and helmets are totally justified. I didn't play, but I've been whacked by one of those metal sticks, and a lacrosse ball (part of a drunken bet, if I remember rightly), and they damn well hurt wink

and what the hell are you blokes bragging about that girlsport named "AMERICAN football" ... AMERICAN FOOTBALL use to be Rugby when it came to America, just you guys acted like little girls and started wearing gear, and changed the rules, so that one can throw the ball forwards ...


naah, jokes man, even though, it is true that A.F. originated from Rugby, but it is a tough sport, probably the most exhausting sport that exists !!!

Patriots are way overrated. Best defense they have faced all year was Dallas ranked 10th. The rest 15th, and four in the bottom five of the league. Indy is coming, Baltimore, Washington and the number one defense in the league....



December 9 all I need to say on the flippin Patriots! Love to hate 'em.

On another note Soccer/Football is the all time World sport probably. Personally, I think it is a fine sport. All about the set-up. Don't know why we Americans don't get it. Oh well, GO Steelers!

Yuck! Still, if you beat the Patriots I'd be happy. I loathe Ben Rothlisberger, but I hate Tom Brady with a burning passion of suns.

The time the Pats went to the Superbowl, and CBS showed a montage with Tom Brady saying, "Weeee're baack!" like a spoiled child, I just about stuck my foot through the screen.

Hockey's a nice hybrid of faster paced soccer-like gameplay with an american football kind of atmosphere. Go Canadiens! smile

And that's because it was the version of the game "football" invented at Rugby school by William Webb-Ellis when he picked up the ball and ran with it.

At my school he'd have been sent off and in detention for the rest of the week... wink

I think your vision of south africans being primitiv, and that we have a king, just shows the lack of education you kids have today !
How can you judge my knowledge of South Africans, if I haven't even metionned them... or South Africa... ?

And why would I be offended if you said that kids have a lack of education, after you said that I said something that I really didn't say?

And I never said that the British have a king, either... On the contrary...

I don't know about plain polo*, but I do find water polo surprisingly interesting (that's compared to other sports). Watched a bit of it 3 years ago at the summer Olympics in Greece.

*When I say that I don't know, I mean that I actuall don't know, cause I've never seen it!

Why? I've become a huge fan of MMA this last few years and am an avid watcher of the events and shows realted to the UFC. The skills these guys display are unreal and I can totally appreciate what they're doing, and thoroughly enjoy watching it. Plus Manchester and London this year where 2 of the events played recently were fantastic to go to.

In America, I know quite a few. That, and we talk about Australian-Rules Football/Rugby, which we just call "Australian Football" the same way we say "Rugby Football".

Yeah everyone still calls Australian Football, Football still but it's actually not called that any more because soccer is now officially called Football here. So we have to call it Aussie rules or something smile

Dont really want to disrespect the english...but we south africans won biggrin and i really think that we deserved it...our team just was better at this tournament...we have the best player of the year (bryan habana) the best locks bakkies botha and matfield, and ofcourse the 1995 veteran, Os du Randt, AND Percy "He-Man" Montgomery...it was a dreamteam !!!

But, because of this stupid political debate we are having, i am pretty sure we arent gonna be very good in the next couple of years... sad and since the english are obviously signing contracts with some kiwis and south africans, they will most certainly win the next cup !

it was a great game, loads of fun,

cheers,
devil

I didn't really enjoy the game that much - and not because England lost, but because it seemed rather eventless. Almost all the points earned by South Africa were actually just down to the England players being idiots and giving away penalties every five minutes. Then, in the second half...basically nothing happened.

Didn't really compare to the thrilling climax of the last rugby world cup, which went right down to the wire and was a great fight for both teams all the way. Or that's how I remember it, anyway. smile

Nevermind, though! Congrats on your win. biggrin

I don't like rugby it's too scrappy. For me football has more skill and American football has more strategy.

hehe, true true, it wasn't as good of a game as the finals in 1995 (where south africa merely won against the mighty all blacks, thus uniting a whole nation) and the 2003 finals (england-australia, and all those beauty kicks by johnny "walking wounded" wilkinson) hehe biggrin

I was just a little upset that bryan habana didnt break the record of most tries in a WC sad he really did earn it !

it is also quite funny, cause 5 of the boks players use to go to school with my cousins ^^ so it was fun seeing them on the field biggrin



and I dont know, football kinda lost its magic, i just reflect on the good old days of zidan, maradona, ronaldo in his good days ...that was great football ! And yeah, american football is quite spectacular to watch, but in rugby, you just kinda feel you are with the team, you struggle with them, you feel their pain, and their glory ! Thats why i love rugby !


But anyways, it was a great tournament,
cheers,
d.

Ronaldo was never actually very good, he was just the subject of complete hype. And as for Maradona? I'm a huge football fan and i can hardly remember him playing, I merely know his game from documentaries on how much of a chud he is now. How do you remember him playing when you were three?

As for the Rugby final. You deserved to win it, but indeed. That was a try. And it would have been a far far more enjoyable match if it had gone to 10-9. Funny how the 'fairest' sport in the world can still completely cock it up. Well done SA though.

I also thought it was a try, but I think afterwards they said, that the guys who passed the ball to the other english dude who "scored the try" steped outside the line !!! Don't really know...south africa also had plenty of try-possibilities, but unfortunately, they were so nervous and kept on doing studip mistakes...but whatever !



and to your maradona question, my bro is/was an ultimate maradona fan, and he recorded all the games, so I watched them when i was 5 or so...atleast, thats the first time i can remember watching his games...still have the old tapes at home biggrin beta-tapes wink you can't beat that excellent quality ..looool
