fantastic to see great crowd figures in Australia for the two Anzac day matches. 

 

Roosters v Dragons: 40K

Storm v Warriors: 25K

 

How would a St George's day fixture go for us here? Has this been tried before?

 

In my mind it would be a very good way to bring national pride together with our sport.

We're not allowed to have national pride in this country. Anything to do with St George's cross is now apparently considered racist according to the PC brigade.

I got drunk on Bombardier whilst wearing a St George's cross hat on Tuesday.

 

And I did so with a member of the Labour party.

 

In Central London.

 

Opposite a mosque.

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Wahey, it's mini Wolford.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

I work at a school that shares the name if our patron. We did a parade, which was nice. But people stopped and asked me what we were protesting!

With only 29 words it makes you wonder how we get six verses.

Since it's not a holiday, it'd be hard to get games on. For a bumper bank holiday crowd in this country, see Good Friday.

The English anthem (Land of Hope and Glory) or the UK anthem (God Save our Queen)?
