    I thought I would get things under way.  Here you go Darren  :p

    Most of our players are all old and crap, our recruitment team clearly has NFI, thoughts :)

    Considering that the retirement age of players these days is heading towards mid 30's i hardly think our teams is old.
    Maybe 20 years ago when 30 was the magic number.

    Our players have been lacking ticker the last couple of years, and thats nothing to do with age.

    Not only are they old, but they are slow as well.

    I thought that your post didn't fit as it wasn't a whinge. Then I realised you could start a "Our Team has No Ticker" thread. :) Nice work.

    actually our forward pack will be younger this yr because perry went,, that means a rookie gets a spot, unless they go with joe then we older than last yr

    I remember a certain Rubgy union team back in 2003 was called old, lack speed and so many other things.
    They went on to win some small thing called the world cup.
    Enough said

    The Poms were one of the pre-tournament favourites in 2003. They did lack attacking ability though, I'll grant you that. Wilkinson's boot got them home, and no doubt they were all knighted as is the English tradition whenever they beat Australia in something.

    actually it was boring rugby  penalty shots at every opportunity(55 out) & drop goals ..  probably scored 5 tries all tournament & thats being generous .. ;D

    I was wondering what response I'd get. But who cares how boring we were we won. Best team by far and away. We don't win many big things so got to take whatever we can get. And given who we beat in the final boy that was sweet. ;D :D :eek:

    Loved the singing the other day (to Yellow Submarine, of course)

    Poms: "You all live in a convict colony, convict colony, ..."

    Aussies: " You just sent us to a sunny paradise, sunny paradise, ..."
