    Yes I am. They actually scored quite a few goals (15 in two games for example ), the problem is they just don't gain points at all. As you said, they just receive too many goals, our defence is a sieve.
    And I don't know if we can be staying up to be honest, can't remember when we were that bad the last time. And I don't know if this season's team has the quality to come back, I'm really worried.

    The ancient Gaelic sport of 'Hurling' dating back thousands of years to the mythical times of Cuchulainn and the Fianna warriors. Hurling is the national game of Ireland today, played in the 82,000 seated Croke Park stadium!

    These days, I tend to just go for the big events across the board rather than focussing on any one particular sport.

    Overall, I watch more Soccer than anything else but I've just been watching the Cricket from Australia (up all night for that!) and enjoy the Tour de France every year and am already looking forward to the 2011 Rugby World Cup. I never miss any of the major Boxing contests either - I can't wait for Klitschko versus Haye!

    I don't actually attend any of the events themselves - I'm just an armchair fan hooked up to my Sky Satellite TV these days

    All things must come to the soul from it's roots, from where it is planted. The that is beside the running water is fresher, and gives more fruit.

    Big Tackle Elessar.

    See what you think of this one:

    Butch James is wel known for this particular tackle "style" which is little more than a shoulder charge made legal because he uses his extended arms to catch his victims as they hurtle to the pitch.

    Here is another example however the hit is a little out of shot and there is no replay. I think the commentator called it a Butch James Special.


    I love the slogan at the end of the clips.
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    I always appreciated individual achievements more, which is odd for me really. In that spirit I like the track and field style events. Javelin, shot put, discus, marathon, swimming, pole vaulting....

    The team sport I most follow is the Celestial Game, the Game of the Gods: rugby football. I follow both the innovative, modern 7-a-side variety at the international level and international rugby, the regular 15-a-side sort, both of which are the Heavenly Game, the Game They Play in Heaven.

    And as I see in this thread, I am not alone in my admiration and liking of the Celestial Game.

    I even dare to hope to see an Australian national rugby team one day win an international rugby match in my lifetime: perhaps if we play Upper Volta or Andorra we could be a chance at winning an international rugby match--while there's life there's hope.
