    Sometimes the language on the Forum can get a little confusing. So ask any question or post any suggestions in this post and I will add them to the OP. I'd like to start by introducing a new one.

    • /sarc = sarcastic comment. ie: Folau should play at loosehead. /sarc
    • AAC = Adam Ashley-Cooper
    • AIUA = As I understand it
    • AFAIK = As far as I know.
    • ARC = Australian Rugby Championship. Now defunct
    • CBS = Crouch Bind Scrum
    • CFS = Chris Feauai-Sautia
    • CTPE Crouch touch pause engage (no longer used)
    • CTS = Crouch Touch Set (no longer used)
    • EOYT = End of year tour
    • FWIW = for what it's worth
    • FTA/FTS = Fainga'a twin Anthony/Saia
    • FYI = For your information.
    • GOAT = Greatest Of All Time. Usually used by New Zealand supporters to inflate the mythical skills of one player.
    • Godwins Law = Given enough time, all threads on G&GR will eventually be about Quade Cooper. (there are only 22 laws of rugby)
    • IIRC = if I recall correctly
    • IMHO = In my humble opinion nb: often not humble
    • Law 23 See Godwins Law
    • Link = Ewen McKenzie
    • Meat and Chopsticks = A meat pie (try) next to the goal posts.
    • MMM = Hugh McMeniman
    • NRC = National Rugby Championship
    • OS = Overseas
    • SS = Shute Shield
    • Tom Carter = A measure of playing ability, especially backs. ie: IMHO Folau = 1 Tom Carters /sarc
    • TRC = The Rugby Championship
    • WTF = What the fuck

    I won't be adding the second two. I'll think about the first but you have about 99% of them on the forum. I suppose we need to understand wtf you're going on about.

    Very informative Sully. I can say I had no idea about most of those terms.

    I think adding AAC, CFS, FTA and FTS might help some people.

    Are RWC and NRC/ARC too obvious? What about ELV?

    What about CTPE, then CTS, now CBS? I am sure there will be some more discussion about this once Super rugby starts.
