England Rugby

Whooohooo, what a great win for England against Australia in Melbourne last night, a sell-out crowd and deafening support from both sides - I was at the game, a night to remember!
I have to celebrate here as it would not go well with my Aussie family and friends.

Re: England Rugby

Glad to hear that one of our own ex-KBGS folk was there to see England beat Australia.
It's good to have any of our sports teams defeat Australia at anything.
I would, however, take you to task for one small thing, Trevor - the title "England Rugby".
As proud Yorkshiremen we know that there is a difference between real Rugby and Rugby Union.

Re: England Rugby

Just before that, time difference, I watched the All Blacks deal to Wales again, on Sky from Wellington. What an awful surface the Aami stadium has for the Rugby Test. It is a long time since I saw a pitch break up like that Trevor. At the same time I had another treat, I was able to record the Cats v Footscray and watched it this morning. It was shown here at the same time as the rugby match. Cheers.

Re: England Rugby

It depends where you live Shaun - in Oz Rugby IS Union and the lesser code is Rugby League. I know in Yorkshire it's the opposite terminology but - do I look bothered???

Re: England Rugby

Yay we did it, a 3-0 Whitewash of the Aussies.
