Re: World's highest paid rugby players

Going pro was a mistake. We're missing out on too many doctors, engineers and lawyers, and the thickos who'd do accountancy and spend all day in a comfy office staring at their benevolent employer's wall.

Re: Polexit anyone?

The Polish are a great people. A smart people. Why stick with a Franco-German dominated Union when they can take the hand of their British friends and take a leap towards freedom?

Re: Former Irish player in District Court

I am not saying the man is guilty of anything, he was a fine rugby player. But the old boys network of promoting prominent people springs to mind Can't really argue with that.

I felt sorry for (and was bemused as) Wyn Jones. Giving away a penalty when your opponent is nearly at a 90 degree angle sucks. 6/10 is probably right on results but I think he was screwed over.
