The rugby is a done deal so I'm just going to stick with the football now and await the inevitable England collapse.
i think the squad having been forced to be made up of in form 'lesser' players rather than the standard list big stars who get picked regardless of how terrible they're playing has been good for the team
England in convincing win shocker!
But I'm mostly Rugbying as whenever I watch an England football game they always lose, I am a jinx.
Don't worry I'll stay watching the Rugby.
The english rugby commentators have been fucking unbearable for the past 4 years.
On any england game they just rotate between talking about jonny wilkinson and patronisingly about how well the opposing team are playing against them, and how they were coming into the game "expecting to lose to the world champions"
my england envy detector is going nuts.
England are shit at rugby now. The commentators are COMPLETELY smug and condescending towards other teams and are often shocked that any team can score points against them. And most of the time watching England is the dullest thing ever. They win all their points from penalties and the occasional driving maul. I'm completely unpatriotic when it comes to scotland, and don't by into the whole "braveheart", "hate the english" thing that most people do, but i can recognise the smug commentators.
Plus, now its on ITV, the commentators are in a completely new league of shit. I'll happily have that drunk welsh bloke back any day.
we should definitly beat portugal tomorrow, which will hopefully give them the confidence they always seem to need.
