fudge that, I appreciate it everytime. Now I have to wait another 2 years.

I have actually never been to Edinburgh on a non-rugby weekend. Always afraid it will be a bit shit compared to rugby ones. Would be nice to actually visit the castle for once though

If you're into castles/history in general and taking things in, the castle could swallow an entire day if you're not careful.


If you ever consider a non 6ns trip, head over to the Scottish thread. Plenty of good advice available.

After our last outing against the Irish at Murrayfield, I just hope we keep it interesting. They are a better team now as well. Take it easy on us chaps.

so does anyone have the energy and ancient knowledge to do the Italy-Wales one ? I would but I'm afraid I'd give some sect members on here a stroke, or worse !! Do you guys wear robes or sth btw, how does this ?... I want in. I'll accept rookie initiations. But please, no British/Irish food involved. I'm not that eager.
