Bill McLaren - celebrate dont mourn!

Discussion in 'The NAAFI Bar' started by Cuddles, Jan 20, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Sadly the Voice of Rugby has been stilled for good. I always knew what I'd do when Eddie Butler died, establish an alibi, hide the weapon...but with Big Bill gone, well I just feel numb.

    So to keep the spirit of the great Bill McLaren alive and celebrate his life, why not come up with a McLarenism of your own, to remember his gift for rugby and for words?

    Here's an example:

    "Oh dear and he's like an Irish serial killer with a choice of two lay-bys today!"

    Probably about a fly-half who couldn't decide whether to kick or run...e.g. Phil "World Class" Godman?

    Or, of an Italian back row "The referee's having a word and it's probably "Which part of off, in off-side, are you having trouble with cnutchops ?"

    RIP Bill.
  2. He'll be sadly missed.
  3. They will be falling down in the streets of Port-au-Prince
  4. And here comes Markintime, shoulders broader than his vernacular.
  5. And there goes Markintime he’s like a raging bull with a bad head.

  6. Yes that's got potential...

    "Dear me, that scrum's about as steady as the town hall in Port au Prince"

    "Well, he's digging away in that ruck like a hungry USAR dog!"*

    "He practically cut him in half with that tackle, it was like falling Haitian masonry!"

    *Note, USAR here refers not to the Argy RU but to Urban Search and Rescue!

    That second phase was like a tsunami on an earthquake - they'll be still shaking in their boots in Haiti
  8. He kicked that ball like it were three pounds o' burkas
  9. If Johnboyzz had been a wee second faster he'd have been a wee second rower.
  10. It's as dusty in here as a Haitin hotel...
  11. He runs down that touchline like a thousand gazelles.
  12. JPR has a sidestep like a Secretary of State at an enquiry.
  13. He is lying there like a Labour prime minister
  14. Yes...more, more!

    "He's as slippery as Lord Mandelson at a jelly wrestling competition in Fire Island"
  15. "Those politicians are as cunning as a bag o’ weasels."
