Like I said, you dont have much choice :D

Mind you, down this end of the woods in the last few years everyone and their mothers have become Swansea FC fans. I wonder why that is...............

Most entertaining game of rugby I've seen in years.

Been a great tournament so far, got me wondering about playing again, until I remember the multiple concussions and the broken back I ended up with as a kid. Seriously the guys out there must be super humanly strong.

Yeah, they're impressive athletes, and super tough. Watched my local union team Southport break the record for the longest game of rugby union at about 26 and half hours, it was an incredible display of grit and detmination that, limping around all held together with bandages and tape by the end, all for charity.

Anyway, big game this weekend.... come on you Saints!

Soccer, really? Who uses that apart from Americans?

I hate that £ucking word.....
I used soccer for personal amusement as it always winds up football fans lol :lol:

Also Japan, South Africa and Philippines use soccer or translation of soccer in addition to the countries already mentioned.

Congrats to Leeds, overall they were the best side this year so fair play to them.

The NRL final highlights are worth checking out, amazing finish.

Mind you, Sensi's hardly alone:
Pro Evolution SOCCER
Worldwide SOCCER
Actua SOCCER
International Superstar SOCCER

Even the early FIFAs had SOCCER in their names.

Mind you, people who think of that word as an Americanism are frankly tools. It clearly has British origins and is a corruption of "association" as in association football. Problem is it's now tainted by... erm, association...

I quite like international rugby union, though don't have much interest in the club game.

I like all rugby league, although I don't have a club (which means I have no real support) and sadly the international game pales in comparison to Union - there are really only three teams (england, australia and NZ).

TBH i'll watch most sports. I find live sport the best kind of TV there is.

Watched the All Blacks vs the Springboks, glad NZ won because they actually managed to score some tries. What bothers me about Union is how many points come from penalty kicks, it just wouldn't seem right if South Africa won without even getting close to the Kiwi's try line.

Can any Union fans explain to me the logic of not simply playing for drop goals, if teams are going to take nearly every penalty kick offered instead of going for tries?

Think they missed a trick not televising England's League game with France, destroying the French would have given the country a lift after England's early Union World Cup exit.
