England v New Zealand, 21 November 2009

Nov 21st, 2009 | By

I don’t imagine anyone believed that England would beat New Zealand, it was more a question of how much they would lose by and would they show any real potential beginning to develop. New Zealand, on the other hand, would not only have been expecting to win, but would have been hoping to get back [...]

England v Argentina, 14 Nov 2009

Nov 14th, 2009 | By

England squeeked home against Argentina yesterday for their first win of the season but there was little for them to be proud of. Argentina are a force to be reckoned with these days. Their recent record against England is very good but away from home and with a number of first choice players injured it [...]

Nov 13th, 2009 | By

My last email to RTÉ has been passed on to the person responsible for compliance processes. I’ll report back when I get a response. I’ve heard nothing from the ASAI yet. Not even an acknowledgment of my complaint.

England v Australia, 7 Nov ’09

Nov 7th, 2009 | By

England fell at the first hurdle of their 2009 international season, against Australia at Twickenham today. Australia had a poor Tri-Nations series this year, losing five out of six games, leading many to speculate that the game was England’s before it even started. The mistake here is a failure to factor in the abilities of [...]

The 2009 F1 season has now ended, so how will we survive the 19 weeks until the start of the 2010 season? Thank goodness there will be plenty of rugby to keep me going over the winter! Congratulations to Brawn GP and Jenson Button on their championships, to Rubens Barrichello, Lewis Hamilton and to the [...]
