Foreign Rugby

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The Great Britain rugby team beat New Zealand today.

The level of interest in the British team is so low that I didn’t even know it was happening or had taken place until it was on the news and it only made the news because the winning try was so farcical.

I wonder how much having a British team costs the taxpayer?  We already have an English team with a massive following.  The British team, by contrast, is largely unknown and of very little interest to the man on the street (or in front of the TV).

I will have to keep an eye out for any future matches – especially if they’re televised – so I can support the opposition.

    I think you may be confusing the G.B. Rugby League team with the England Rugby Union team.

    Two different codes for two different teams. Rugby Leage teams have thirteen men per side and no line outs and is at its strongest in the Lancashire and Yorkshire areas.

    As an aside, seeing as all the GB players, or nearly all, are English, I don’t know why the team goes under the GB title… may have something to do with the fact that they used to be sponsored by British Coal!

    Trust me Bazil, I’m the last person in the world that’s going to confuse England with Britain.

    I don’t support Britain, it’s a foreign team for me.
