Re: Jokes revived

Two Teenage girls were taking a bus together when one was overheard saying to the other - "The thing is, I can't bear late nights. If I go out to dinner with friends and I'm not in bed by 11, I go home".

Re: Jokes revived

70 year old Mrs Jones went to the doctor for her annual check-up. He told that she needed more activity and recommended sex 3 times a week. She said to the doctor "Please tell my husband". The doctor went out to the waiting room and told Mr Jones that his wife needed sex 3 times a week. Her 80 year ...

Re: Telusa Veainu!!

I believe that people "like" things without really thinking what it is they are liking.

Re: Jokes revived

“In my day, we never got woken up by a teasmade. We were knocked up every morning by a man with a six foot pole. And we weren’t having hysterectomies every 2 minutes either, like the girls these das. If something went wrong, down below, you kept your gob shut and turned up the wireless". Victoria Wo...

Re: Watching the Lions

I watched the game live until near the middle of the second half, and then gave up, believing that this group of ill-disciplined Lions have absolutely no chance. Checked the score, and I could not believe it. Yes, I had little faith, and sadly there is nothing I have seen so far on this tour which s...

Re: TMO Manipulation

I certainly did not like the way the Referee appeared to be steered away from a decision the TMO did not like. Here is the protocol,

It seems to say that it is the Ref who is in charge, contrary to what one of the Commentators said.

A joke that tickles me

Two men of some considerable years are chatting at the home of one of them. One says “My wife and I went to an amazing restaurant last night. The meal was delicious, and not too expensive either”. “What is the name of it”, enquired his friend. Looking puzzled, he answered by saying – “Help me now. A...

Re: Money where your mouth is time

Earlier on this year a number of us boldly put our predictions on the forum as to which team would finish where. I have analysed these predictions by comparing each prediction with where the team actually finished. I gave 5 points for an exact match, and 1 point foe being within 1 place of actual. C...

Re: An end to endless tropes about players who left?

Personally, I think that it is wonderful that players seek new opportunities, new horizons, change of scene, etc etc. In business, people move on, it's natural - I can't understand why it should be seen as any different in sport. Those that are left get on with it. Same with Tigers, move on.

Re: Better Play Off System?

That's why I like it. Seems fair to me, as you have finished first or second, and there is a real incentive to do so. :smt026

Better Play Off System?

Just a thought. Am watching the Indian T20 tournament - the IPL. The top 4 teams are in the play off. Let's call them 1, 2, 3, and 4. Team 1 has home advantage and plays team 2. The winner goes directly to the Final. Meanwhile, 3 and 4 play each other and the winner plays the loser of the first game...

Re: Waynetta - too familiar??

Speaking of Nigel Owens I listened to a wonderful edition of "Desert Island Discs" recently with dear Nigel in the chair. Very illuminating, and well worth a listen.

Hopefully this link will work, if you have 30 minutes' spare.

Re: Waynetta - too familiar??

Hadn't see this post, so late in replying. Glad the question has been raised. I don't like the Referee using Christian Names, mainly because, for me, it just doesn't sit right - the Ref should "keep a distance". What is happening though is Refs referring to some players by their Christian Names, and...

Re: Purely hypothetically

Interesting question. However, given the number of people who have said that the play off system is an incarnation of the devil, then I assume that they will be calling for us to: a) Remove it from any list of achievements; b) Return the Trophy; c) Call for an end to the ridiculous idea that a team ...
