On rugby administrators’ 40m PBs and other things

anti-climaxbuildingupBloody rugby. A month or more of rich 6 Nations fare and then what? Back to club and provincial rugby. Pffffffft. Not good enough.

What do rugby administrators know about servicing the fans’ needs? What qualifies them for their jobs? What are their PBs over 40m?

Bastards. In the meantime, enjoy a weekend of – yawn – club and provincial rugby.

  1. I been watching for about an hour

    England has scored 9

    I miss being able to watch cricket in the morning, on a weekend, it’s the perfect way to wait for a hangover to go away.

    When faced with an insurmountable total my pub team sometimes choose to chase half what the opposition got and failing that just bat 40 overs for anything. 52/9 in response to 250-odd was my favourite. England seem to be taking this approach

  3. ClydeMillerWynant says:

    Of course if England are 9 down at the end of this match it will be a result. But even so…

  4. avsfan says:

    They are going to have to try and do something different. Nine runs an hour probably isn’t a sustainable strategy, even if they haven’t lost a wicket in the process.

  5. avsfan says:

    Great knock by Prior.

  6. avsfan says:

    Botham being pretty ungracious. Dick.

  7. avsfan says:

    Classic – Broad knocks 16 off four balls then caught at point.

    I have no life.

    And with NZ on 8 for 3, you will not have much to celebrate. I hope your rugby teams won else you’re going to be a bear with a very sore head.

  10. ElSuavo says:

    OK, end of play & they have steadied the ship a bit. Could be an interesting day tomorrow if England can get us out cheaply & then have to rack up a total – they’d be bound to dawdle to a Boycottesque draw, shirley?

    Morning All,

    First time I’ve managed to pop in for a few days. Talking about cricket are we?

    Well, on a rugby note Mr Butler is doing a cheeky bit of stirring on the Observer/Graun website by suggesting that Steve Walsh, whilst being applauded for alowing free flowing rugby last weekend may actually have a few questions to answer with his scrum management. Hmm.

    One other thing. He talks about Dan Cole verses Adam Jones on the field but surely he’s either describing something very badly, or he’s plain wrong as they don’t square up to each other in the scrum.

    Morning all.
