  1. Six Nations 2018

    Haha, yes. “Play the whistle” is a staple of the game, I seem to remember. Johnny Sexton was off wayward with the boot today. Halfpenny much deadlier. Thought Shingler had another good day, too.

    Agreed mate. And the booing the kicker really annoys me. Where’s the class in that?
  3. Six Nations 2018

    Thanks Gents! I’ve just seen the game, as I was working earlier. Can’t quite believe it...✌️🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Listening to Inverdale and Guscott afterwards is amusing! And Eddie’s face.... lol A great first half display of attacking rugby, but the hard work was done in the second. Phase after phase of English play was turned back without conceding penalties, as we normally do. John Barclay was immense again, and Russell had a much improved game. Huw Jones just keeps on scoring. Long may it continue. Managed to catch the Ireland v Wales game earlier, and it was a nail biter right to the end. It could have gone either way, and Wales were unlucky just to be pipped at the last. Another cracker of a game. And, @JohnS, those were players, and the English were at it too. GET THE HELL OUT OF THE GOAL AREA!!!!
  4. Mate, you read my mind. Started typing an essay, then got bored of my own rant, lol The gist was, basically, that somebody at HSA has done the math on exclusivity versus quality, and figured out that spreading the load over many different marcas and regions, rather than investing in two or three global releases, drives up demand and reduces risk. You can even dispose of a few turkeys in there. As long as you throw a few winners into the mix, you’ll keep the collectors hooked.
  5. Great stuff! Won’t make it back down any time soon, but, for those who do, they’ll be in for a treat. My missus still takes the piss out of me whenever she sees me smoking a labelled cigar. ”Still smoking that mass-produced garbage?” Her first ever cigar was a corona, rolled fresh for her by Alex. To this day, the only cigars she’ll even consider smoking are the customs I brought back from him. Spoiled from day one! 😁
  6. Lovely! And to think El Philistine slags off that deck! Shame! 😉

    What a guitarist! Every time I pick up my strat, I try to channel him. Never works. You can’t polish a turd. His cover of Jimi’s Little Wing would be top of my Desert Island Discs.

    Plymouth. Tried many different gins, and for a proper G&T, or a decent Negroni, I always keep coming back to Plymouth. Cheaper than craft gins, decent strength, no frills bottle. Love it.
  9. Bought a cheap brûlée torch in Germany for €4. The huge fuel reservoir attests to my innate laziness of character.

  11. Batman Vs. Superman first trailer

    Not the words I would have chosen to describe it. Just watched Justice League, in the hope that this franchise might improve. Still not great, but the shorter running time meant punchier editing, and the introduction of a much needed dose of humour helped somewhat. They’ve still got a way to go before competing with The Avengers, but definite signs of improvement.

    A tough result to take. It was a try. All the English pundits in today’s papers have acknowledged it. Had it been given, the whole tenor of the game would have shifted. I’m no fan of the English “superior” mentality, but it seems to work for them. You can’t argue with the results. I agree about the unsportsmanlike behaviour exhibited by Brown, but you can’t just single out the English as being solely guilty of that. It’s becoming more and more prevalent in the game, generally. On a related note, Brian Moore used to be the anti-Christ, in my eyes, when he was hooking for England, but I am forced to admit that he’s become one of my favourite pundits. He hated the Scots with a passion when he played against us (and I’m not convinced he doesn’t feel the same way now), but I admire his straightforward, honest approach and refreshing lack of bullshit. A good result for our lads today, but, jings, they made us sweat for it! Good to see they addressed the defensive weakness which Wales so ably exploited, but they still managed to let two tries through before they shut the door. I’m not usually a big Laidlaw fan, as I feel he tries to play the referee more often than the advantage, but he certainly justified his selection today. A great performance.
