by Flanders and Swann called A Song Of Patriotic Prejudice which sums up foreigners and sport just right

"..they argue with umpires,
they cheer when they've won,
and they practice beforehand
which ruins the fun!.."

Says it all, doesnt it?

Personally I would ship the whole England rugby team in shackles to the Colonies. They are even more hopeless than our pathetic, gormless Football and completely bewildered Cricket bunches of losers.

I am ashamed of Englands' lacklustre attempts at sport of any kind.

That is the worst decision ever. Sour grapes or what.

Excuse me but I thought it was Wales who lost?

  Joe R 21:13 25 Nov 2006

Forgive me for being confused, but were the all blacks not playing Wales today,? and England against South Africa.?

Wales 10 V New Zealand ( all blacks ) 45

England 14 V South Africa ( springboks ) 25

I think that was the scores. ->->-> [ door ]

"..they argue with umpires,

If my dodgy memory serves, the chorus goes:
"The English, the English,
the English are best.
I wouldn't give tuppence
for all of the rest."

There was a time when that was true. Honest. Stop giggling at the back...

I think its a great song (along with the gas man cometh) but unfortunately quoting the rest of the lyrics would (probably)be against the forum rules. Maybe FE could comment, if he knows what we are talking abou?
