My New Rugby Team

Still shattered from the World Cup and slightly scandalised by Rhett Snell becoming a Blue's supporter, it did my heart good to see the "old country" beat the "old farts" this weekend. Wales 26, England 19. Unbelievable.

To be fair, I've always held Wales as my second rugby team just ahead of Manu Samoa. What's more amazing was the turnaround from halftime - 10 points down at halftime, they held England to just 3 points in the second half, for a 20-3 second half. Now that's a downtrow for England. No wonder Ryan JONES (no relation) describes it as "one of the greatest days of my life".

Nice Kiwi connection too with new coach Warren Gatland working the magic.

Another Great Redeemer huh?

Well I am about to sign up for Virtual Super 14 and I hope you do too. It's time for me to whoop you. I can feel something special coming on this season.

2 for 2! The hapless Scots battered to death by the Welsh leek.
