Rugby Thread (Both League and Union)
« on: January 07, 2015, 09:43:22 pm »
We need a thread for this. I know us League fanatics are few and far apart in this community but I'm sure there's a few Welshmen/Scotsmen/Southern-poofs that like Union too. And a nice Union-League debate is always healthy.

Anyway! I'll start us off with some topic.

Can he hack it in Union? Did he go for the money?

Me and Fungus were having this conversation earlier. He thought the Ireland vs Wales game was good. I argued that a game with no trys and decided by penalties is never a good game. If that happened in League the Ref would be shot.

I found it boring, much preferred the England-Scotland game, had more exciting plays and moments in it.

The England Scotland game was chaotic in the first half, so many errors on both sides, it was like watching amateurs for the first 20 mins.
However both sides really improved their game in the second half, and the stats show why England looked so dominant in regards to attacking.

As for that Ireland Wales match, I regret not watching the first hour live due to being misinformed about the kind of match that was taking place. Minus the odd mistake here and there that game was brilliant, the only reason why so many points were converted from penalties was because of the attacking intent of both teams and the fantastic defending that took place to compensate. I have to agree with Jonathan Davies that was arguably the best match of the Six Nations. But probably only because Ireland's other games had been pretty boring and Wales had played below par up till that match.
Props do not go to them, they suck.
Hmm yeah that is true. But if I may ask, isn't it some sort of plagiarism?

Will be an interesting finish thats for sure.


England, Ireland and Wales have each won 3 and lost 1 each so from here they all have a chance of winning. If they win all their matches next week (which is likely as the other 3 have had a very poor season) then it will depend on point difference.

+37 England
+33 Ireland
+12 Wales.

Wales have to beat Italy by at least 26 points and they need to hope England lose by a bit.

I reckon Wales could easily win this year, however I reckon Ireland will. They've played absolutely amazing this year. It will be interesting though as it is so close.
I hereby present Crusader with the Blobdominican medal for Bravery above and beyond the call of duty in his role as AdminBorn of the FSE servers. We have also arranged some lovely flowers & a kitten to commemorate the occasion.
Thanks Crusader for all of your work in the community!

Football Thread?

Comparing Football to Rugby is like comparing Communism to Capitalism.

For the most part it was just a standard rugby game, but Wales' defence was incredible! When it got up to 30 something phases haha. I find it more interesting to watch a game like that than a completely one sided demolishing of a side, which thankfully doesn't happen so much any more now that Italy and Scotland have improved a bit.

About the England Scotland game, there should have been so many more points in it, but both sides kept fucking up ::)
England will lose on points difference to Ireland, and I will blame it on that game, just not capitalising on opportunities enough.
The last weekend should have some great games though.

Just once I'd like to go to a Scotland game and see us win, of the 15 or so I've gone to see, we've only beaten Japan @____@

Maybe we'll pull of an upset against the Irish at the weekend, although I highly fucking doubt it
