While I agree with this..totally

Eddie himself is renowned as probably the worst sledger in history as well as being utterly fearless.



I bet he’s chuckling away quietly on this one. :thumbup:


He’s setting Hastings up as the other panto villain and the gullible English types are lapping it up without realising the panto is still happening.

Quite

Broad can also mean thick, dense, impenetrable and unreasonably miserable

Or so I believe

Yep. Skinny jean wearing fúcks


I like to think the wet patch on the leg of the guy in the really skinny jeans was where he had pissed himself, but chances are he had just spilt his beer.

These lads just look like common garden variety twats, I cant imagine they in anyway represent the typical scottish rugby fan

Just rise above all of it, in my experience the only way to do that consistently is to always look down on everyone. :thumbup:

The news won't surprise anyone who's shared a bus, train, stadium, pub, pavement with a group of Scottish, Irish or Welsh fans.

It's strange, because England have a great sporting rivalry with other countries like France and Australia (I'd call the Australia rivalry our biggest, it's certainly the closest-fought), but I've never seen half the bigotry and abusiveness out of either of those sets of fans and you do from a set of celtic rugby supporters on a match day against England. It just seems to be 'accepted'.


Yeah the English are great salt of the earth types that never get into any bother. It's not like their football fans have seen their teams banned from International competitions or anything due to their shocking behaviour, you know something that never happened to Scottish, Welsh or Irish teams...

All nations have a minority of dickheads in them, you just have more of them because, you know, you are a more populous country.

OK - the guys who gave the disgusting verbals to Jones deserve to be punished/fined. They probably regret it as we speak and an apology would show they can man up to what they have done. SRU statement covers it for 99.99% of Scottish rugby supporters. However for Jones to single out Berghan and Hastings is just way over the top and I suspect he just doesn't get the rivalry thing between us. Jones is a wind up merchant and if any coach takes things too far at times it is him.

On the Hastings comments - I come across both him and his brother regularly and both are very very passionate Scots however they are both good, honourable guys and Gavin would be horrified with what Jones as implied. He wouldn't necessarily be on my Eggheads team but he does not deserve the Jones accusations.

We Scots don't have many victories like Saturdays to enjoy and year after year have to put up with the patronising and mildly racist and offensive comments about the 'plucky jocks' from the ever infuriating Inverdale, Gassgut and the likes who sit smugly on the BBC stage having flown up the morning of the game complaining about the cold and the weather and who fly out immediately afterwards. Once again on Saturday we had the 'plucky scot' Nicol perched at the side of the stage almost out of view whilst Inverdale and his buddies warmed up for the steady march of England to the Grand Slam. Thank feck big Paul brought some objectivity to the analysis and focused on what Scotland did well rather have than the ongoing 'what is wrong with England' debate!

The problem is most folk south of the border are oblivious to the ongoing, slightly offensive and irritating English parochialism that pisses off most Celts and wonder what all the bother is about when it is raised. Try waiting for the Pro14 rugby results on the BBC on a Friday night and all you get is the Quins and the Leicester results!

Listen the guy had a few verbals thrown at him and didnt enjoy it, it was mild compared to the shit thrown my way last time I wore a kilt down south to a wedding!

Bloody hell, people get frozen out of work, attacked, have racist political and nationalist groups against them and you claim that this is somehow in anyway racist and deserving of any negative feeling. Also WTF? The BBC only shows Pro-14 games domestically and your point about results is just false.


Actually, have you ever been to Scotland?

What the fudge is wrong with you today?

Sounds like similar sort of verbal antics happened during the match itself, he was just behind a glass coaches' box. So not sure how much value there is in saying these cnuts aren't rugby fans.


Heard a lot of nasty stuff at Murrayfield last two times we were there. All the nationalistic centuries of hurt stuff just seems to spill over.


Without a hint of irony but a page apart.

You ran away from the big bad bully Jerpy as you couldnt stand the heat. You like to dish it out but can't take it, never could.

Dont worry Toga it's only words on a computer screen you can log off anytime it gets a bit too much for you.

It’s not my fight or anything, but you did spend many years standing behind jrp shouting ‘come on Cvnt!’ from the back and snickering loyally at his every Fonzie-joke

So, I’d probably STFU if I was you.

Must have been unsettling for Eddie, and he would have been entirely unprepared for verbal abuse having previously operated in the kindly, restrained and measured environments of Japan and in NZ as Wallaby coach.

Arseholes are arseholes no matter what country they are from.

In this case the arseholes were Scottish and out of order.

Shouldn't of happened, the plum should apologise and get a kick in the baws and move on.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think you are suggesting that this

is what happens to English people in Scotland?

Lack of self awareness amongst a lot of our English posters is staggering but not unexpected!

There is a reason why most other countries dislike England and love to beat them - whether it is football, rugby or any other sport - and it isn't anything to do with the quality of their team. It is the completely ego centric and patronising behaviour of theirs, a mild 'Brexit like' Johny Foreigner approach to everyone who is not english. It isn't deliberate nor are they conscious of how patronising they come across. There is nothing worse when I'm in France playing golf when a group of loud (they always are!) Estuary English march into the golf club bar and start shouting at the 'staff' for pints of bitter and sending back their steaks until they are 'properly cooked' shouting Garcon to anyone not speaking english! Lack of respect drives me feckin nuts!

This holier than thou attitude was one of the main driving forces behind the creation of the great British Empire. It is also probably why they lost the empire, why the other UK nations want greater autonomy/independence and why 'little england' will probably end up ostracised from the rest of Europe and indeed the Celtic nations.

Good god think I'm going stir crazy in this snow induced entrapment!

The Gaels and Picts get away with all sorts of racism against English people, it just isn't picked up on in the media. There is an outright hatred of England in those lands, whereas as we welcome them in to our kingdom.

It's strange, because England have a great sporting rivalry with other countries like France and Australia (I'd call the Australia rivalry our biggest, it's certainly the closest-fought), but I've never seen half the bigotry and abusiveness out of either of those sets of fans and you do from a set of celtic rugby supporters on a match day against England. It just seems to be 'accepted'.


Hate to be the one to break it to you, but as you'll see from the examples referenced in my post higher up the page, there are English fans equally capable of such egregious behaviour.

I've been at Twickenham myself when acceptable 'banter' from English fans around me has morphed into "f*cking sheepshagging plum" from a couple who let the side down.

I'm not daft enough to tar all English fans with the same brush, though.


Exactly. I went to Twickenham with my then girlfriend who was Welsh, for a world cup warm up match against Wales, so hardly as important or passionate as a 6 Nations game. This dick behind us realises she is Welsh and starts trying to give her some 'banter', it wasnt funny, just a bit angry and he just came across as a bit of a sad middle aged man, now it wasn't really abusive but was uncalled for. He even said something like 'well you lot would say the same to me'.

I saw Wales v Ireland in the 6 nations in Cardiff, I was sat next to a very angry drunk welsh fella, who kept punching his own leg when Wales did something wrong, and he shouted huge amounts of abuse at one player, strangely it was a Welsh player, I have no idea what Aled Brew had done to offend this guy.

I say it wasn't much fun sitting near either of these 'fans' but I wouldn't typify either My own Nations or Welsh fans based on these experiences.

C0ck. This is c0ck.

The resentment of the "celtic nations" towards their neighbours has NOTHING to do with current behaviours of individuals and EVERYTHING to do with the [perceived] power-relationship for the last ?10 Centuries.

The English currently act as a convenient mechanism for blaming life's unfairness (economic, cultural, sporting) on an outside force. We are born to expect fairness and we don't get it. "Celts" have a reason...

Scotland want independence - patriotic, independent, freedom
UK (England) wants independence - xenophobic, racist, isolationist

We get it.

I hope Brexit strengthens the ties between the countries of the United Kingdom. The Picts may be hard to win round but the Welsh and Nordies are a great laugh and always welcome. I would love to see a UK rugby team play against Ireland.
