Re: Game of Thrones - Books/TV (Full of spoilers mark nothin

Thinking more about it in the books Bronn and Varys pretty much disappeared once Tryion left Kings Landing. Can't see the Tv producers wanting to do this just like they didn't want to get rid of The Hound or Theon for a prolonged period. So I expect both Bronn and Varys to go to Bravos with Tyrion a...

Re: Game of Thrones - Books/TV (Full of spoilers mark nothin

That episode wasn't bad. Asha stuff was a bit damp squib. Yeah, it was clearly filler. I'm hoping that the Greyjoy Kingsmoot will feature early next season, and we get to meet Victarion (my favourite character) and Euron Greyjoy. I have the feeling Euron and Victorian will be combined into the one ...

Re: Blues v Waratahs - Is there a match thread?

Just watching the replay of the game now. IMO the disallowed try by the Warratahs in the opening minutes should be awarded. The TMO may have been right technically but I think rugby as a game does itself a dis-serve by not allowing in the rules to award tries like this. The whole second movement thi...
