Are there any here???
I support wales (i live here, and hubby plays rugby as well, not for wales i might add!). Just seen wales against england under 21s on tv, and yep, we won. But different for tomorrow though. I think ireland or france have a very good chance of winning. what about you lot?
I also have to say that i support local teams in rugby and football, but i prefer rugby to football as you dont get the t**ts as you do with footy!!!! Any of you agree???

My dh is a Rugby fan so I have to watch the matches (or be aware of what happens in them). I support England and he supports Australia (being from Oz) but we have a sort of order of preference for all the other teams. France and NZ come at the bottom usually!

YES!!! I'm here - afraid I'll be supporting England. I LOVE my rugby (hated it before I went to Zimbabwe) and have always thought football (unless it's a major tournament or 'big' premiership match) to be a pile of poo.

I am in south wales and like to watch the international games supporting wales (obviously!)
I am not into it at local level, but my dh is and its always on our telly. He used to play for a local side until his back decided it had had enough!
We will definitely be watching tomorrows game, think they have got a pretty good chance but whenever someone says that it seems to go horribly wrong!!

My dm is a Welsh woman now living in Dorset. She loves rugby. When I lived at home I used to make sure I was out of the house when a match was on. She scared me to death shouting at the tv and her language wasn't much to be desired either.

Dh watching rugby now. My mum will be gloating on the phone in a minute when Wales win.

Bugger they won. Will never hear the end of it now.

Yippee for Wales (she says in the spirit of friendliness)

Now now play nicely Sparkler. When was the last time you remember Wales winning against England? You must let everyone have a turn.

SPARKLER1 Sat 05-Feb-05 19:29:51

Very true. Ok they can have this one then?

oh emsiewill, they have got to you in Newport haven't they? Are you sure they haven't got you in their power? First trying to get me to live in Wales, now supporting their rugby team?

Lonelymum, you must choose! Is it duvets or rugby!!!???? (You fickle thing you!)

Lonelymum Sat 05-Feb-05 21:04:41

Both! I can multitask with the best of them!

moondog Sat 05-Feb-05 21:05:30

Weheh marj! This round is on you!

marj Sat 05-Feb-05 21:30:51

The round can be on my dh who has probably drunk enough for all of us!! Not sure what time to expect him back this evening. Am not looking forward to the drunken snoring tonight!!

Cold wet and windy you mean Moondog? Sorry couldn't resist that.

moondog Mon 07-Feb-05 13:40:55

lm!! How cutting!
(Actually today is gorgeous-very very sunny. Just had a Turkish lesson in which I grappled with pronouns and a very nice lunch with dh and pups, so all is well with the world!)
