Rugby Yawnion has always had a good following in the rich parts of the UK, hence the "popularity" of the game and with the establishment BBC where you had to be a toffee nose to get a job for a good twenty years after the war. I can recall those awful 5 nations games of the fifties and sixties when only Wales played the game that you could just watch, but Auntie BBC with Peter West on Saturday Grandstand thought it was marvellous. In 1972 I went to New Zealand and had to endure 35 years of the All Blacks being rammed down my throat, but no more. The game is for the brain dead both on and off the field, thank god it`s only a minority sport where I now live here in Australia. As I used to tell them in NZ, Kiwis are only good at two sports, rugby and rowing, and you don`t need any brains for either.
