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. The Washington Post is taking a poll for what sport should be added to the next Olympics.....we are trying to ensure rugby wins this informal survey! Please visit this site and cast your vote for rugby -
    it will only take a minute of your time.

  2. Fantastic! Excellent! can't wait 'till it happens!

    :D :D :D :D
     
  3.  
    Pah!...Rugby is fer puffs....


    Dog Evasion! :twisted:
     
  4. Can you imagine it? It would be carnage! All those 'non-swimmers' have seven shades kicked out of them by the Aussies, the Kiwis, the Springboks and the Brits...bring on Sudan! :twisted:
     
  5. Its pretty close between Rugby and "Ultimate Frisbee" at the moment...

    What is Ultimate Frisbee when its at home? thats what i would like to know!

  6. Ultimate frisbee is somewhat akin to a cross between Rugby and Netball but with a.... well a frisbee.

    Not 100% on rules but basically you can't run with the Ball/frisbee, and you have to advance it up the field and have a member of your team catch it when in a specified "goal" area.

    Not a bad game actually, but surely Rugby has to come first.

    We could also go the other way and vote for Twister of course.

    At least Rugby is a sport where we could pretty much guarantee victory going to an Empire team eh Rangi, unless those dastardly Frogs stick there garlicky spanner in the works.
     
  7. It has to be Rugby Union rules though.

    Rugby league is for poofs
     
  8. Has to be union - may stand a chance for a medal (although it would have to be amateur and all our guys are pros
     
  9. frisbee it is then
     


  10. Besides the fact that there is enough very very talented amatuer players around , what about the Army or Combined Services representing GB at the Olympics ...nice thought huh :?: :D
     
  11. I don't think amateur status is relevent any more in the olympics ... anyone remember the USAs Basketball Dreamteam?
