Jdog is technically correct but also a little lazy. His list includes Easter Saturday and Easter Sunday - holidays but not really because I wasnt going to work them otherwise.

Re: Your fave in game cheating

The jersey pull probably my favourite of the fine arts. Running out in support of the backs, opposition backline kicks through and knowing he has the wood on you for pace, go wind sailing on his jersey.

Ref is firmly focused on the bounce of the ball.

Good times.
