Re: Second best Mafia movie?

Departed was so good for 98% of its running time, and then the ending goes and sucks sh*t, completely ruins the filum. On par with the ending for Game of Thrones.

Re: Lambos - pile of rubbish

I've never driven one, nor will I in all likelihood, (not that interested tbh), but I'll always have a bit of a soft spot for the Countach (looks-wise), still looks amazing to me. I understand it is an extremely uncomfortable car to drive in, I suppose not surprisingly.

Amongst the current lot / active players, maybe Radradra? But plenty of candidates

Arrows have signed Rob Howley onto their coaching staff, in a consulting role. He's also joining the Rugby Canada coaching staff. Good signing imho for both outfits, and hopefully lets him get his career back on track.
