Sweaties beat the Frogs
 
Having insulted two nations, I shall retire.

How sad am I? I just went on to the RWC web site to see if I could work out what you were talking about...

Having worked it out, I'd like to preen slightly and suggest that everyone from south of Hadrian's Wall has a look at the pool tables after today's matches.

Pool tables - we play snooker here

Yeah, yeah!

waring,

As a Scot, I'm deeply insulted.

You should have titled this post "Sweaties beat the Frogs - again".

Absolutely hilarious, I watched the game twice.

The French were doing all that contintental nonesense: ball control, passing, possession etc and the Jocks were out for a good old game of "Kick and Run", and whalloped them.

Normally I would support Germany and/or Argentina, even Ireland against our Northern Neighbour, but this match really tickled me.
