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. Is a concurrent Welsh slam inevitable?
    I find it pretty hard to see anyone getting in their way, at least until Mark Lievremont works out how to pick teams properly.

    If Wales do get it, I think it will be their first back to back Slam since 1909...
  2. I for one would love to see Wales get another slam. It's far from a given though.

    The French always produce a strong team....and England always seem to step up to the plate (to much annoyance sometimes....but fair play to them) when it counts.

    The game against Australia this weekend has to be one of the most nerve racking/exciting games this year!
  3. While I really do want England to step up to the plate (and stop fukin about)! Wales did really well I think and can certainly hold their heads up. Here is hoping only England beat them!!
  4. I only saw about half of the game in between doing other things but it seemed to be a crackin' event.
  5. Certainly what I have seen of them they looked the best of the home nations and on that basis winning the championship is a real possibility, though I suspect England and Ireland will be working hard to regain some form.

    The chances of a Grand Slam for Wales will depend a bit on where they play France
  6. Wales are playing in France for that match:
