The difference is the size and build of the players and the size and shape of the balls :D

OK if it's quotes you want:

Rugby is a game for the mentally deficient... That is why it was invented by the British. Who else but an Englishman could invent an oval ball?

I'm on a roll now:

To Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips, Gordonstoun School's rugby captain, for his pre-match coin-toss preference -Grandmother or tails, sir?

BBC, I would love to say that I read a lot (I do - but need lots of pictures and 16 pitch letters) or that I am a witty and clever bloke who is a lot of fun to sit next to at a dinner party. Sadly I'm a geek who spends a lot of time surfing that fount of all knowledge - the www. Sorry.

fountain of knowledge it may be, but suggest you don't believe everything you see on the www. is it exactly what it appears to be!! :D

I would be absolutely fine at these parties if I could work out how to say sh1t, or fcuk or even cnut which are some new words I've learnt since drinking at said fountain. Any ideas? Or should I run them through the spell checker again?

MPS you said,
"I would be absolutely fine at these parties if I could work out how to say sh1t, or fcuk or even cnut which are some new words I've learnt since drinking at said fountain. Any ideas? Or should I run them through the spell checker again?"

Did you mean you want to say these words at dinner parties MPS????
If yes, then you really need to think about the context of the work, I meant highly inappropriate to turn to the hostess at any point and say 'Sh1t Lady Head-Up-Bum, that is by far and fcuk the best bacon I’ve tasted since cnut knows when!' :D

And as for running them through the spell checker.... I feel the nasty bumper sticker quote coming on..... Please ensure brain is in gear, before allowing mouth to drive off!.... Maybe would help.....Failing that only go to dinner parties hosted by other members of this site! :roll:

Oh, shudder, it obviously would NOT be a family event! 8O

Ah BBC! Very funny. Very funny indeed. Just read your reply out around the office (protecting sources, of course), after brief background introduction. General agreement that you are a good egg with finely tuned sense of humour. Perhaps you should get your bones over to this place - it needs an injection of humour!

Or are you fully booked at the Comedy Store?

I can't believe you used the phrases Dinner Party and Arrse in the same sentence so derogatively... especially when talking about the lesser skilled game- anyone can kick a ball; it takes skill to catch and throw it!

If that is so how come there are thousands of artists who paint with their hands but only one famous one who painted with his feet? How much skill does it take to drop the ball 2 yards from the line then?

As a Scot even I liked this.......
I hope those who are not English will still appreciate this!!!

An Australian family of rugby supporters head out one Saturday to do their Christmas shopping. While in the sports shop the son picks
up an England rugby shirt and says to his sister, "I've decided to be an
England supporter and I would like this for Christmas".

His sister is outraged by this and promptly whacks him
round the head and says, "Go talk to your mother".

Off goes the little lad with the England rugby shirt in
hand and finds his mother. "Mum?" "Yes son?" "I've decided I'm going to be an England supporter and I would like this shirt for Christmas". The mother is outraged at this and promptly whacks him around the head and says, "Go talk to your father".

Off he goes with the rugby shirt in hand and finds his father. "Dad?". "Yes son?". "I've decided I'm going to be an England supporter
and I would like this shirt for Christmas." The father is outraged and promptly whacks his son around
the head and says "No son of mine is ever going to be seen in THAT!"

About half an hour later they're all back in the car and
heading towards home. The father turns to his son and says "Son, I hope
you've learned something today?"

The son says, "Yes dad I have."
"Good son, what is it?"
The son replies, "I've only been an England supporter for an hour and already I hate you Aussie b@stards!"

:lol:

OK we've done rugby quotes, now apparently it's time for rugby jokes:

Eddie Jones takes the Wallabies out for training and tells everyone to assume their normal position. So they all go and stand behind the goalposts and wait for the conversion.
