This is the attitude that has led to the rest of the home nations achieving absolutely nothing on the world stage in rugby. .
Don't know about your country but mine got to the quarter finals after being a shitty last in the 6 nations. That's an achievement for me!

Look at it this way. When England win, only the English are happy. When England lose, EVERYONE is happy.

Why would you deny so many of happiness?

This is the attitude that has led to the rest of the home nations achieving absolutely nothing on the world stage in rugby. And they'll continue to do so as long as they think think that reaching the pinnacle of the sport is beating England every once in a while.


The majority of supporters at Twickenham on Sunday were English. And they got firmly behind the Scots, so much so that they were deafening boos for Foley's final kick. Now imagine that this match was England playing a SH team in either Cardiff, Dublin or Edinburgh...

Those 2 statement were seperate, please do not combine them to make urself feel that every1 hates on your team.

We play cricket, nothing as compared to our asian counterparts, and no1 supports my country, like EVER. But that doesn’t stop us from supporting other teams, especially India, whom others consider to power trip their way in the sport. I support, because I enjoy watching them play.

That being said, even thought there might be a reason why a certain group of people never support your team, which perhaps is because of the ongoing non justified arrogance showcased on different occasions in sports, when all could have had done without it. Prime reason for me to not support a team, and a genuine reason is the cockiness demonstrated by the team when they are clearly not good enough to do so. Major turn off.

Please be reminded, I enjoyed Eng knocking Aus off in 2003 and was shocked and booed when England was denied the Lampard goal in 2010 in South Africa. Has nothing to do against England, it has to do with the situation.

I think it used to be more like that when u had guys like Jeremy Gussett or Will Kahling around - to be honest I do like the cut of a lot of the English players' jibs up until the world cup but FFS a thug like Callum Clark ??? Sorry no coming back from that one.

Can we not just all be happy that England went out early?
Absoulutely, about time someone had a real long look at the English set up with their arrogant public school boy image coupled with the time and money invested. Nothing short of a national disgrace. I for one hope they have a shake up very soon.

Re: Rwc 2015

Watching the All Blacks vs the Springboks. Since when were straight scrum put-ins not required?! I haven't seen one yet in over 50 minutes of play, from either side (although South Africa have had most of the scrums).

What next -- lineouts?

I have no idea what you're talking about (don't follow rugby much) but there are about to be some very heartbroken Bok fans. Does it feel better if you lose by a ton instead of by just a few points?

Excellent game. (Apart from the scrum put-ins.)

It'll be a very tough game next Saturday.

Great game, Boks tired in the last 20. No surprise really after last weeks game.

Argentina vs NZ will probably be a 60 - 15 destruction.

The SA vs Aus game should be interesting

I think you're confused. Green and gold does not equal England.

And there's no way Arg would score 15 points.

Re: Rwc 2015

What a great game it was. The NZ had scored the try and gained a few points advantage in the second half. Cannot say much about what Boks did wrong because they played a good game overall. Two points difference was similar to SCO vs AUS outcome. Someone loses, someone wins!

Take it as a positive, you can still play for 3rd or 4th place!

Imagine if Australia hadn't won their quarter-final. NZ vs Argentina would have been an absolute pushover.
