More about me:

quote

After making the usual trek from centre to 7 to 8 to 6 and eventually to an armchair, I love a little mischief and a shout at the TV. Worst sporting moments are either Seville in 03 or the RWC semi at Murrayfield in 91. I'm still scarred by both.

Can't stand Johnny come lately rugby 'fans'. The ones who jumped on world cup and grand slam band wagons. Play the game, watch the game or coach the game, then I'll take you seriously.
