To think there really must be a female cameraperson whenever Wales play in future

Because surely any woman would understand that when Leigh Halfpenny has his scrum cap off, the camera needs to be on him in a lingering close up?

We do NOT want to see anyone/anything else. Ok maybe a second or so to see what kind of kick he has to do but then back to Leigh please

Shane Williams - those eyes! That smile!

Hmmmmm liked his golf carts did Andy Powell. What an idiot but he did make me laugh when it was all doom and gloom. Wales are bucking the trend this year it's usually either a GS or the wooden spoon !

My next door neighbour looks like Mike Phillips fast forwarded 30 years. DH is sick of me saying it every flippin game smile

My DM just found out the other day that she works with Jamie Roberts' DM.

Working in Cardiff does have its advantages. I saw Adam Jones in the shopping centre last December (wearing shorts & flip-flops?!), and few years ago I passed Ryan Jones on Queen Street (the main shopping street in Cardiff). Duw, duw - Ryan's a very tall lad compared to a shortarse like me (at least 14" taller than me!).

Mike Phillips is soooo gorgeous but I wouldn't want to go to a nightclub with him !

Please let France get the wooden spoon this year grin

Where is Andy Powell now ? Maybe we should give him the job of welcoming England to Cardiff next week and see what happens.

He could chill out the very creepy Owen Farrell.

I've got a big soft spot for Adam Jones. As my first child was being born by c-section, someone in the operating theatre said, "this one is going to play in the front row for Wales!" The baby was a massive 10lb 13 and had a mop of black curls! Then we all realised that she was a girl grin

Wish I was Lunatic but planning to be there late afternoon next Saturday.

Now I can appreciate Leigh Halfpenny as a farking gorgeous example of humanity. He works so hard to be super-stacked when he really isn't tall enough. Slogs away at the back and commits to taking high balls...

But no one can replace Stephen Jones in my heart. Top bloke in general. As someone else said; calm and solid (when he wasn't playing a shocker).

I reckon Mike Phillips fancies himself too much. And he can't bloody pass without taking a step first. Nyer.

But bottom line - I think the entire Wales squad are absolutely lovely and I think they're ambassadors for how you can be a nice person and a top sportsman at the same time. Footballers take note.

And if this were a conversation held by men about women... Well... I think it would be rather different?

Even though its moved on a little since the accusations of being sexist...

Can I just defend myself by stating hat as a fully fledged bisexual, I would equally dribble over some female beach volleyball players, and as for Katy Perry... That girl would never recover being left alone with me.

So nerrrrrrr.

Now, back to welsh rugger players.

I adore Adam Jones... I had a sex dream about him once, but I still wish it had been Leigh halfpenny... I also dreamed I snogged Owen Farrell t'other day, because my 'English' team is Saracens!

TastesLikePanda - a sex dream about Adam Jones!! Can you remember it? Did he come over all like James Bond or summat and seduce you, like?

TastesLikePanda Sat 09-Mar-13 23:10:01

Well, now, from what I remember he had to rescue me from some horrible people who were threatening me. Which he did because he is massive!

Naturally a lady must show her appreciation in such circumstances... wink

Is this the place for me to mention that I am in a deep sulk because Ronan O'Gara has been dropped from the Irish Team?


whateveritakes Sat 09-Mar-13 23:23:04

Yeah Panda another Sarries fan.
It was a sad day when this man left see Hugh Vyvyan. 6ft 6. - there is a God

LetsFaceTheMusicAndDance Sat 09-Mar-13 23:23:33

Yes that's fine Exit because he's as fine a figure of a man as any.

TastesLikePanda Sat 09-Mar-13 23:29:26

Ooh a hint of the ginger there.... I do love me a ginger!

Crossing my fingers now that Sarriies make it to the Aviva final, what I have got tickets for!

If they do, I may make some black and red pompoms!

whateveritakes Sat 09-Mar-13 23:35:50

I have tickets too! With a bit of luck I will see you shake your pompoms then. wink.

TastesLikePanda Sat 09-Mar-13 23:52:12

I'm pretty sure you will recognise me... I'm kinda short, and kinda wide and my hair is bright green on top and bright red on the bottom!

I do stand out in a crowd... I was at the match vs Exeter chiefs at Allianz and could see myself on the tv when we watched it back!

Halfpenny is a good player but surely he has to be on steroids. He's too wee to be that pumped....
Also the welsh team are generally not lookers. Now, Tim Visser, Scottish / Dutch. Lovely. smile
