  • Wales v All Blacks 2nd Test in Hamilton

    It's abso-bloody-lutely belting it down here in Hamilton but the overwhelming urge to trawl the local bars for Welshmen is too strong.....hmm, that came out wrong? What I mean is, it would be nice to meet up with the Welsh rugby fans who have descended on Hamilton in their droves for the 2nd Test tomorrow and partake of a few sherbets while we reminisce about the green, green grass of home; God’s country if you will. I’ll have to get a taxi!

  • NAAFI Tea for Tough Guys Sold to Soft Civvies!

    NAAFI Break tea, the only thing keeping the British Army's front line troops fighting fit (a thinly veiled reference to the controversy surrounding their sub-standard kit), is to be sold to civvies. That's right, civilians or regular non-serving members of […]

  • As Long as we Beat the English we Don’t Care

    It wasn't that long ago that the British peoples were spilling each others blood on the battlefield and even though we now coexist under one united banner, (blame the Act of Union) not a great deal has changed . These days Twickenham, Croke Park, Murrayfield and The Millenium Stadium are our battlefields where lines are drawn and blood frequently spilt. But as serious as a rugby union international is, there is nothing but humorous banter between supporters.

  • 6 Nations Rugby 2010

    Well bugger me if Setanta aren't airing the IRB 6 Nations Championship this season! That subscription can consider itself well and truly canceled. Fortunately, ESPN is showing the Northern Hemisphere's premier rugby showcase. Unfortunately, one is required to buy a new HD set-top box and subscribe to the new HD channels which will set you back another $20 a month. Looks like the kid's Cartoon Network has been canceled.....at least for next couple of months.

  • Googling Nude Photos of Julia Gillard

    I find it not a little disturbing that the vast majority of visitors come here by way of a Google search for nude photos of Julia Gillard! This is the reason why they come, ergo the reason the post appears in Google's search results but is anyone able to explain to me why one would be Googling for images of Australia's Deputy Prime Minister in her birthday suit?

  • The Whinging Welshman

    While this all encompassing, if inaccurate label causes no offense to me, it does to some. This is especially so when preceded by ‘whinging’ or 'bloody' and whilst the precise etymology eludes me, it is worth noting that even the Australians are unsure of exactly where or how the word ‘Pom’ originated.

  • More evidence that 'the geek shall indeed inherit the Earth', comes with the news that South Wales Fire & Rescue Service are using big boys toys in their efforts to tackle remote grass fires. With 5,500 emergency calls in one ten day period, the crews can use any help they can get. Assistance comes in the form of an eight-wheeled amphibious vehicle and a mini remote controlled 'eye in the sky'. Now, when it comes to rugby, us Welsh are currently the best in the Northern Hemisphere but when it comes to bush fires, the boys here at Bendigo CFA could surely show them a thing or two...
