    The "Pressing health" concerns would have nothing to do with the fact he is due to face Jonah Lomu on sunday, would they?

    "Staniforth leaves Exiles for home

    Staniforth joined London Irish from the New South Wales Waratahs
    London Irish's Australian wing Scott Staniforth is to leave the club and return home with immediate effect.
    Director of rugby Brian Smith said: "He and his family are moving to address a pressing family health matter."

    Staniforth is expected to continue his career with Western Force, the new Super 14 franchise in Perth.

    Staniforth joined London Irish in July 2004 and made 34 appearances, scoring 13 tries. He was the club's player of the season in 2004-05.

    "I have enjoyed playing with the boys and the supporters have been fantastic," he said. "

    What's seeing Lomu got to do with it? The bloke lost the Firepower/Mobility/Protection struggle years ago and a few digs in the kidneys would slow the guy down in no time.

    think you mean kidney!

    At least he's using his transplant to good effect to continue his playing career rather than an other famous sporting transplantee who used his to continuie his drinking career.

    Without a shodow of doubt, fair do's to the guy. The more youthful population of this country would do well to look to egg chasing for role models instead of the spoilt oiks who play the association game.

    I once stood in a lift with Jonah Lomu. I'm not small but he's fücking massive: I looked like RTFQ in comparison (although slightly better looking).

    It's hardly difficult is it ?
  7. I met Wendell Sailor and the Brisbane Bronco's in a bar in Brisbane whilst on Long Look 2001. One of the navy fellas said he was "going over to call him a n*gger" I thought that would be interesting because Sailor would have killed him. I got over there to shake his hand and the guy was MASSEEV. The Navy fella was fauning all over him and trying to get him to sign a 50 dollar note. Wendell refused saying that 50 bucks is a lot of money. He ended up signing a 5. Funny how the Navy lads attitude changed.

    You looked like what you are: a gout ridden, gin befuddled wretch with a waistline by Mercator, a hairline by Egas Moniz and a coiffure by Lovecraft.

    And you can wind your neck in, you dress like the militant wing of the Village People and you beat your poor dog in public - that's both a aphorism and a euphemism :D

    All said by the man who's tase in clothes stems from Chairman Mao's interpretation of Socialism! :lol:

    See, all these assumptions made by people who wouldn't know style and panache if they jumped on their testicles while wearing my little pony wellie boots.

    My taste in clothes comes from Plato's interpretation of Existentialism. I'm making no apologies because you feckers are still in the cave, blinking at the burning light of my cool new jeans.

    cool new jeans, white t-shirt, black leather jacket. Didn't Fonzie do that in the 50's? Isn't "Existentialism" the new fragrance from L'Maison Hai Karate?
