  2. Bobcack are even sponsoring the rugby?

    Festering corporate bastards.
  3. It isn't looking good to be honest.

    I think pitch invasions are the order of the day again. Either that or actually make the Army select non-Fijians in their team.

    I have to agree; I put up with the rain and delayed a long drive back to work in the hope I'd see something special but realising that the Army trounced the Crabs 59-0 and we only managed 13-6 puts it all into perspective.

    It's a cunning plan.

    I hope you lose. Massively.
  9. But we will win the punch up that decides who has the honour of scoring first.

    You can have that.

    Last time i was there, i was verbally abused by a bloke dressed as Nelson in the toilets. I pissed on his buckled shoes.
  11. At least you were only verbally abused BR, I'm sure you've had worse abuse in a mens toilet before.
  12. The match is being shown on Sky Sports 1 but via its Red button option, as it clashes with something else (European rugby, I think).

    How many fijians are playing this year?
  14. It was a red button last year as well Soleil. but SKY seem to be the only ones who give the match any cover, the last few years i have scanned sever newspapers on the Sunday and Monday following the match and not a word of commentary on the best attended Rugby match (Bar internationals and cup matches) in the UK each year - the gate competes with top flight football matches ffs

    Anyone know the score? :grin:
  16. Just back home, as per normal there was the customary punch up in the first 5 mins started by the Army so we had the honour of scoring first.

    Final score 49:9 ? I things are a bit hazy.

    Crowd of 65,000 a quarter of the upper tier, that I could see was used for the first time.

    5 Streakers during stoppage for injury 1 bloke made it across the diagonal, as big and hairy as me, 1 scored a try (in his head) a couple of others didnt make the pitch. Tinker Bell and Peter Pan and A N Other Flitted around for a while.

    The Servicemen's Wives were better live than on tele and brought a tear to my eye with the National Anthem with the band.

    A couple were stretchered off on the quad bike ambulance, hope they are all right.

    Looking forward to the 27th. of April 2013.
