    weirdly, now watching full replay of 1991 final Aus vs Eng. Never seen it before since after NZ were eliminated the entire year itself simply ceased to exist.

    had forgotten how ramshackle and tinpot it all was back then. Players ran onto the field.... and then literally stood around for 30 minutes as the band walked around/ a few anthems were played/more standing around/queen gets chatted up by Nick Farr Jones/another anthem/ on and bloody on.

    The handling skills are fucking atrocious. Just a matter of time before some klutz spills it.

    Yet the spiral kicking on display is just sublime. Ball flying for miles. Lost art.

    First try scorer? woah is that Ewan Mckenzie?

    Scrums such a lol. They just form up and ram into each other. Takes about 2 seconds from scrum being called and theyre all locked up.

    Lineouts lol. No one gives a shit about kicking it out cos there's literally a 50/50 chance you're getting the ball back in the groundbound melee. Brian Moore throws it in like he's shotputting a raw egg.

    I think a regular article for the blog being "Dismal Reviews Old Matches" would prove quite popular.

    Scotland vs Japan (2003 RWC) in Townsville

    Up to 2003 now but scrums are still formed up 1991-style with a random laissez-faire ramshackle headbutt motion. No fucks given, great to see. Back when every knock-on didn't mean a 3 minute drinks break before both packs deign to dick about with 2 minutes of scrum resets either, ffs.

    Japan in the big baggy jerseys but you're not fooling me, the backs are still 75 kgs.

    Japan quite competitive, even with just one gaijin ring-in in the ranks. Compared to now where the only actual Japanese blokes are reduced to sitting on the bench watching some gaijin mercenary prick who can't speak a word of the language run around for the Risng Sun and will never even think of setting foot in the country again once his playing days are done.

    Scots forwards coach was Pat Lam? Wow, 2003, years before he became Blues coach and went on to ruin the dreams of children.
