    6 Nations - Who’s going?

    It's a real pity that Scotland failed so dismally in Wales - was always going to be hard especially with the amount of pressure on Scotland being the "Dark Horse" and not to be underestimated. Any other given time, Wales would have seen this as a walkover, and may have got caught out. The game was a shocker, but does not represent where Scotland are in terms of World Rugby. Wales seriously rattled us in the first half, read our game, and we had no comeback or alternative strategy - the game was Boys against Men. Sad to watch, Scotland have proved they are better than this. We are punching above our weight in this arena. I was confident from the start of the 2nd half that Scotland had this against France, they just seemed to be spoiling for it, and as the clock ticked, I could see the control and just felt relaxed, this was our game. France appeared tired, disjointed and rattled. I reckoned we would beat England, but without taking points off Wales in the first game, this going to be a very close. I always thought Ireland would be the toughest game for us.

    6 Nations - Who’s going?

    Would you like to add some salt to that ? We were never going to win all games, 3 doable and 4 possible. Wales will be in for shock very quickly, It all counts on an Ireland win for us assuming we can tale Italy and the home games. Both top seeds are capable of losing points.

    6 Nations - Who’s going?

    $750 on Scotland @ 10/1 $234 on Ireland @ 3/1 $20 on Wales @ 15/1 $5 on France @ 15/1 $1 on Italy @ 500/1 Who is missing ? Betting Slip sent to my English Mate who thinks England already have their name engraved on the trophy hahahaha. ABE. $1000 bucks, with chance of Ireland stealing it and getting my money back (almost) but think Scotland have a decent chance this year. Worth a flutter. If Scotland can take Wales away in the first game - then game on. Toughest game for us will be Ireland in my view. 2 tough opponents at Home, and Ireland away. I know I am delusional btw.

    Gareth Bale plays for Wales. I don't know who the manager is or anyone else in the team. I just know Wales suddenly became a team from nowhere and shot up the world rankings. Iceland intrigues me. I sometimes think just like Georgia a good few years ago, it's all about belief, youthful exuberance and less over thinking/strategy. A decent striker, a team that can work together/read the play and defend, a decent goalie, then its game on. How exhausting/pissed of to we get when playing a defensive game ? Regardless of the team, we all just want to see a team ready to give it laldie. Probably the closest we have ever been, just lacked winner/killer attitude.

    3 weeks in Australia

    Great Ocean Road as far as Warrnambool - that's whole day slow driving just 1 way just so you know, but can be split stopping off halfway, never met anyone yet blown away with this but each to their own. It's a novelty on the way out but tiresome on the way back. Yarra Ranges/Dandenongs to the east of Mel is a great drive with lots of quaint little villages/townships in the Bush (very scenic, high altitude and an hour from CBD). Melbourne has it all really, Funky Fitzroy at night, St. Kilda and the Mornington Peninsula, Roof Top Bars, CBD buzz, Chinatown, Greek Quarter, Italian Area on Lygon Street, Shows, gigs, and check the Crown Casino for variety caberet acts (always good fun,seated with tables and bar), Botanical Gardens and museums - all very compact and accessible on the inner tram network. The rest sounds like a busy plan but what any tourist would want to see in Oz. Sydney for Opera House, Bridge, The Rocks, maybe Coogee and Bondi (but thats all in Sydney for me I'm afraid). Cheap flights via Skyscanners is the easy option for Jetstar, Tiger etc. Book early for best deals. Accomodation/Hotels will be the big pocket burner, but try Trivago.com or Bookng.com - I know Melbourne well so happy to help

    2017 Gig Thread

    ^ This. I vowed never to go back to a open air Stadium Gig again - this was over 20 years ago. The sound is crap, too many pissed up louts (women were always worse), squeezed in like cattle with some BIG tall ####er in front of you. Guys pissing where they stand, and the worst ever, the pints of warm piss being chucked forwards. The worst I saw, and this was just the straw that broke the camels back, was some chick squatting at the front of the Main Stage at T in the Park, about of a third of the way back, but in front of the mixing desk in full view of everyone, for what everyone thought was a cheeky piss, but dropped a big massive brown curler. I'd seen it near the men's cubicles a couple of years previously - but this had to be the absolute worse. She even got up, pulled up her kecks, looked around to see what she had left behind, grimaced, shrugged and then staggered into the crowd to get away from what she had left behind her. Reckon she was in her late 30's early 40's, arse like a plumbers toolbag, I like getting tanked up a little before a gig, it's part of the deal as long as you can hold your drink and not be upsetting others and being happy and friendly to others.

  11. I think this is part of it, but not the whole story. btw - My Dad controls the weather in Scotland.
  12. I did to try and help you on this one ;-)
  13. Good post. It is not as clear cut as the MSM, Ruth, Dogdale and the "blinkered" would have us believe. My 73 y.o Dad voted NO in referendum, but SNP last election. He really liked Wee Nick. He wants to remain in Europe. He said he couldn't vote for her again as she keeps bringing up Independence. I had to tell him that's what he voted for in the last election, it was in their manifesto for any material change. He didn't seem to get that this is the ultimate agenda of the SNP. I told him she is fighting for you, as you voted to stay in Europe but you didn't get to. You voted Labour all your life but England & Wales has once again decided what you are getting - a Tory Govt and out of Europe. He voted SLAB this time around. Could not argue with this - he's in Dundee so wasted vote anyway. But he is now Anti Sturgeon and SNP because he reads the tabloid press mainly and was sort of gloating - "that's her finished now". After explaining SNP has "Won" the Scottish Election, still the major party in Scotland, and 3rd biggest in the UK, and that 35 seats were about the right level given the referendum 45/55, he was still vehement she was finished "You can throw all your numbers at me and Statistics - naebody wants this". So I had to say "So well you must be happy with all your voting then because you got everything you wanted? - a Tory Gov and now a NI DUP party, and you are out of Europe - can you not see why we need to be Independent?" I think pensioners in particular just don't realise WTF is going on. The 36.9% share make sense as hard core Indie Voters. This GE vote was skewed in my view buy 5 things 1. Hardened Brexit Voters - the 38% who do not want to be in Europe, but really want Indie (without Europe). So perhaps that is where Wee Nicky/SNP/us got it wrong by assuming that the 62% of Remain voters, wanted Independence but still to be in Europe. Personally, I think this is where the greatest impact was. 2. Yoons - the 55% - any party but SNP. 3. The late Corbyn effect. 4. Tactical voting Libs/Dogdale supporting this. 5. The missing Youth vote. It's coming, it will not go away. I am hoping Article 30 just sits their stagnant for the moment - and we come all guns blazing as time unfolds - saw FMQT on youtube from last Thursday - Davidson is becoming an over confident puppet. Dogdale was a joke.
