Whatever you do, don't argue. We might never hear from you again.

Blimey, we could do whole chunks of Ospreys 'free ticket' supposed supporters at Liberty Stadium for the stuff they pump out.
(Not I may add the usual travelling 'Spreys crew who are lovely).

I loved the story of Scott Johnson (late Ospreys/Welsh etc coach) who apologised for calling New Zealand a "poxy little island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean" - and amended it to say it was "two poxy little islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean".

I thought that racism only applied between different races.

The examples given are of people of the same race but from different countries, and that's xenophobia.

I totally agree.

But I think that banter between English and Welsh, or Americans and Canadians, or Aussies and Kiwis, if not OTT, can be tolerated by all sides.

But comments about people's colour and so on is utterly on a different level.
