6 NATIONS FIXTURES 2018

Well there's the rugby league peasants too!  I think it's a topic for another thread but at hurling or gaelic football all colours, supporters are mixed and it's the same with most soccer and rugby matches. That doesn't happen so much in premier league, or third division. The large mob following Stan Collymore down the street in France, those guys, they're the minority that give it a bad name. Diving and rolling around in pain gives it a bad name too. 

Luck happens more often in Rugby. There's snobbery too. Some folks won't stand for their anthem because they're supporting the team but their great great grandparents were English,and their folks would not have encouraged Ámhrán na bhFiann. 

 

England were tough at the end. They didn't make many handling errors. 

Wales were tough, thought it was a faster game.

Utter bollocks that sadly seems to be the view of quite a few MEMBERS on here looking down their nose at football and its working class fans but then it does tend to be the middle-class twats with their head up their own arse that shares this view :doh:

Where I stay the only people who play and go to watch rugby are mainly the rich of which a high percentage are numpties but I would never dream of calling all rugby fans rich numpties  :wassnnme:

Well done Ireland :yep:

 

 

In all fairness as far as the fans are concerned, at a rugby match - a big deal match like the England vs Ireland game today for example, the fans mixed in the stands, a lot of beer was drunk. And nobody punched anyone, no chairs were thrown, nobody invaded the pitch and threatened players (unlike the West Ham game the other day). It's not about working class and middle class, it's just a different kind of atmosphere. If I were a parent (which i'm not, fortunately for the child that doesn't exist lol ) I'd be happy to take my kid to a rugby match. Not sure I'd want to take my kid to a football match, even now with all the money. I certainly wouldn't want to be anywhere near the world cup this year (assuming Theresa May doesn't demand that we boycott it :headpain: ), shit is gonna kick off in Russia, even if the British hooligans don't manage to get there, the Russian hooligans are serious - I wouldn't be wearing an England shirt within miles of Russia when the tournament starts :nea:

 

I love football, but don't try and pretend that it doesn't have a fucking nasty vibe.

Football is gentleman's game played by thugs... Rugby is a thugs game played by gentlemen. I think the same is true for the fans... :yep:

Its not really much of a gentleman's game when the English coach calls Ireland a scummy nation and Wales a shit little country imho

 No you shouldn't..I have spent 7 years taking my lad to football league and some of the behaviour I have seen is beyond shocking...a 15yrs ref getting punched by a parent.

 

Few pints and their team winning and soon the chest beating begins, seen it to many times with a lot of my mates as well.

 

"Oh it's a bit of banter"...fk off
