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. 74 -10 against the Golden Lions.

    That was a great display, notably Croft, Bowe and Mears.

    Every one of them played well.
  2. Damn missed it. Must get the highlights later
  3. Saved by the Irish!!!
  4. Now then McGeechan, could Quinlan have done that?

    Excellent performance, looks like the obvious Shaun Edwards directed beasting that occurred after the Royal Highveld XV has done its job.

  5. Wha?
  6. when is the next match?
  7. The last time the Lions went UNBEATEN in South Africa was 1974 - I think.

    I have compared the weights of these gladiators with the British & Irish Lions currently touring.

    In 1974 the Test side weighed in at: 209 stones - 13st 13lbs average

    The heaviest side that could be deployed today: 252 stone - 16st 10lbs average.

    1974 Heaviest Willie-John McBride 16st 12lbs - Lightest J J Williams 11st.

    2009 Heaviest Adam Jones 20st 5lbs - Lightest I don't know. Shane Williams probably. (Ospreys give his weight in 'effing' Napoleonic kilograms!!!!
  8. Jonathon Kaplan.


    Worst referee ever.
  9. Just seen them beat the shite out of the Sharks. 39 - 3. If the Lions hadn't conceded a penalty 30 - 0.

  11. My Test team (as it stands at the moment)

    15. Byrne
    14. Fitzpatrick
    13. BOD
    12. Roberts
    11. Bowe
    10. Jones
    9. Phillips
    8. Heaslip
    7. Wallace
    6. Croft
    5. POC
    4. A-WJ
    3. Jones
    2. Mears
    1. Jenkins.

    I know there are no jocks in the team, but i would place Hines as one of the subs. Shane Williams has played himself out of the tour. O'connel is lucky he is Captain as i have not been convinced thus far.

    Comment if you please
  12. Sheridan should be there.
  13. Yeah i could go with that one. Wouldnt like to be a selector to be honest
  14. I think welldai is there or thereabouts. I am not that clued up on front row, but everything else looks spot on, although I do feel Jones from Wales will feature somewhere
  15. Well we got the result today, but I still think Murray should start.
