Even our cities are no longer safe

I was just about to run up to the pub to watch Forest v Norwich, when I find out that there is Stupid Game international on TV starting now.

As this is a big city, I suppose that there is a small chance that there won't be enough inbreeds and sheepshaggers there to overrule me on my viewing choice. But I'm not betting on it.

Inbreeds and sheepshaggers? There's socialist comrade.

As long as we are clear that this is "rugby" Union that you are on about, and not Rugby League......
(Their line outs now look like even more like basketball gone bad - and that's saying something.)
Otherwise, I think Pete the Honorary Kiwi might wish to join me in having something to say.

I am indeed joining in Mike. People have a bad habit of talking about a sport called Rugby. There is no such thing. There is a game of skill, courage, and fast flowing action called Rugby League. Then there is another game called kick and clap or rah rah rugby, sometimes over-dignified by the name of Rugby Union.

They are two different sports from a common root (though the posh Southern one decided to persecute the Northern working class one for 100 years).

You can think what you like about them (I never watch the rah rah stuff) but to claim that Union is simply Rugby is enough to cause apoplexy in a fan of the greatest game.
