FWIW I've started a thread for matches other than Straya's:
DP, by dent of omission.
^ that's a "take it to the bank (& throw it over)" source right there .
Thanks for that Tex, I have also put it in my google calender thats on phone etc, I usually book all my work on it, but f*** work, a man has priorities!! Have also set uo a TV outside in the patio, so WC can be viewed in plenty of spots around house, even the pool if it a hot evening!! I almost ready!!!!!!
In the pool hey? Don't know what the September weather is like over in the shaky isles but I think we're still a few months off anything like that over here in Melbourne!
How good is the saturday schedule!? Wallabies v Fiji, Argentina v France, then the big kahuna, Kiwis and Jaapies.
I've booked a too-long bike ride early sunday morning so I'll be watching with a lemon squash, but for those inclined, just chuck in the AFL and NRL finals with a big parma on the side and you've got yourself an epic afternoon at the pub.
I'm pretty sure Dan54 is in Brisbane.
In that case, swim away! The closest I'll get to watching in a swimming pool is drawing a long bath and steaming myself silly.
I am BH, I do tend to think it will still be later games before I watch from pool, and then only games I not TOO invested in!
Two or three NRC games will be world's better for getting into the mood.
Amen but we take what we get down here mate
The Boks appear to be in shape
Lood de Jager all like "yeah, nah, that's not happening."
2 DAYS, 10 HOURS, 16 MINUTES, 27 SECONDS

Apparently Rob Howley, Wales Asst Coach, has been sent home due to a betting scandal. Yikes!
Hopefully it throws them off the ball a bit.
Yes, Stephen Jones has been sent over to replace him as attack coach, Howley is back in the UK facing an inquiry of some sort. Strange, he has been with Gatland for a very long time, and to now be betting on games? Gambling problem maybe.
