    At the Olympics, we compete as Great Britain because the team contains English, Scottish and Northern Irish athletes, and the Welsh. At rugby, the teams represent their own countries within the United Kingdom. So, the reason that today's magnificent victory belongs to the mighty English alone, is simply that there were no Scots or other foreigners playing in the English team. :roll:
  6. Yeah kick a girl when she's down!!!!
    I feel a sicky coming on on Monday!!!
  7. Trust a Scot to grab on to straws. If england had lost she'd maybe made some other comment, maybe not.

    A great day for English, British and European rugby as it's the first time a 'Northern hemisphere' side has won the Rugby World Cup.

    What makes it all the sweeter is the way the Aussie press have been slagging the English side down the whole time as old, over rated and not on form. Well to be 'not on form' and to beat them, including scoring a try, should a) prove a point, and b) shut them up! :D

    Well done England!

  10. great match well worth getting up for, and very proud to be english :D
  11. well it was suggested creating a UK football/rugby team but it seems that the welsh/scots/Northern irish didnt want that at all, tsk tsk ruins of nationalistic blindness matey :roll:
