    Its Scotland at France on now with Scotland making many errors in Paris. They need to pull their heads out of their kilts and get on with it. They should not lose to France this time around…that said, they are playing horribly. Too many ball handling mistakes and stupid penalties.

    Then it’s England at Wales in Cardiff. The Welsh look good this year, The English look unstoppable going into this summer’s World Cup. This is England’s 6 nations to win.

    Sunday it’s Ireland at Italy. The Irish should win this easily.

    The games are on NBCSN if yinz is interested, if not, that’s cool too as this is an OPEN

      I want James Wood on Mt. Rushmore.

      The last time somebody told Americans to sit down and shut up was 1776.

      to AOC who scolded the ‘cheap seats’

      James Wood definitely gets some good licks in.

      AOC and her ilk are truly dangerous. Raised on privilege and narcissism, steeped in communist propaganda, they are advocating tearing down a system that has provided the best standard of living the world has ever seen.

      No aid has been allowed into the country. Of 4 trailers, they’ve set fire to 2.

      i was at Landsdowne Road in Dublin in the late 80’s to see ireland play the all blacks. the pure passion of Amhrán na bhFiann was the single most amazing national anthem belted out by the 60k fans in attendance. it was one of the loudest things i’ve ever been witness to…the passion was felt even by me, a foreigner.

      and then the all blacks crushed ireland in a brutal display of clinical rugby.

      The World Cup is no pushover for the ABs. Tere are any one of a number of potential winners waiting to pounce.

      I just hope the refs get their shit together and stop this creeping defence. It spoils the game by slowing it down. Ping the first World Cup game for multiple off sides and everyone will get the message that this nonsense will not be allowed.

      I couldn’t count how many times that the English were off side during this Welsh – England game.

      Great game. No rule bending creeping defence bullshit made for a great open running game.

      The French Forward Pack … ARE BACK. and the French Back Line are let loose once more.

      A pleasure top watch

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJqoY_3l4p4

      Scotland outclassed on the day by a rampant French Pack.

      Never a truer word said!

      The ABs are looking great this early in the season but they need to step it up yet another notch to win the World Cup.

      I am unsure that there are any notched left above their current precision and relentless clinical approach.

      There will be passion aplenty in Japan this year at the RWC.

      The greatest malefactors are the English and the Yarpies (South Africa).

      They need to be blown up a few times and they will be forced to change their tactics.

      The trouble is not with their players. It’s with the coached who are pushing the ‘off-side’ rules to the limit and beyond and that destroys running rugby. Glad to see the French have NOR succumbed to this BS.

      🙂

      I know that the French are rebuilding … but they ARE the French… and on any afternoon they can explode and win against ANYONE

      God I love the passion of this game!

      Was this the AB – Ireland game you were at?

      The AB in the black and white head band is Wayne ‘ Buck’ Shelford one of the two AB flankers and one of the ‘hard men’ of AB history.

      He’s a really nice bloke. WE are both on the Auckland Returned Services Association Committee. We have our office at Eden Park ( thanks to Buck). He was a Chief PO swimmer (diver) with the Royal NZ Navy as well as being a famous AB. When he retired from AB rugby there was a bunch of dyed in the wool Buck supporters who used to sing …. ‘Bring Back Buck’ … at AB games for the next 20 years!

      🙂

      He is STILL a hard man and still does loads of gym and is still solid muscle but he’s a really gentle soul …. off the rugby paddock!

      Apparently Russian Times is participating in a bit of Potemkin Village propaganda in concert with Blumenthal. Showing Blumenthal wheeling a shopping cart through a fully stocked Venezuelan grocery store and promoting the story that the empty store shelves and starving Venezuelans are just Western Media propaganda to take down the Venezuelan government. As if the libs in the Western media would try to take out one of their fellow travelers.

      and it seems Macron, being thoroughly fed up with this yellow vest nonsense from France’s version of flyover country yokels, is going to present legislation that would punish anyone engaging in ‘hate speech’ (e.g. Macron is an arsehole) by banning them from social media. For life.

      How bent do you have to be to deny people who have been starving for years – even if it were caused by Trump – food because Trump sent it? These are people who back whenever burned witches.

      If you want to understand the Boer here is a movie based on fact.

      Breaker Morant.

      It is about the facts surrounding the ethics of total ethnic guerrilla war.

      Morant was an Englishman and a South Australian horse breaker who fought in the Boer War as did the Aussies and Kiwis. The Boer were fighting a guerrilla war against the British and the Brits were using ‘expendable’ troops from the colonies of NZ and Australia as guerrilla fighters as well.

      Never again after Transvaal did any Australian military unit fight under British command. The Aussies were grouped into a Federal Commonwealth in 1901 as well partially as a consequence of the Boer War in South Africa. The Kiwis too always had their own senior staff commanding them after Transvaal.

      Enjoy. It’s a classic movie.

      Not yet. Next year when we put on the addition. But, I have external cell phone batteries and gas heaters and plenty of candles.

      I’d say she’s full of crap. I read the original NY Post article and she has never lived there. Then she lied about it, even to the point of dodging reporters by ducking out of back doors while claiming to be getting ready for a photo. She’s full of crap and keeps piling it higher and higher.

      The mail carrier said mail piled up for months at a time and it is the address she’s used on her tax returns since at least 2016. I believe the family may have inherited this when her father died (she was in college) and kept it because it’s rent controlled. She may have used it simply as a ‘mail drop’, that’s not unknown in markets with controlled rents.

      There was an interview with her after she won, showing her in her apt w/Riley Roberts (boyfriend) in a pic. Was in Vanity Fair? NYT? Can’t remember. Find that reporter and get the address where the photo was taken.
