one nil, one nil, one nil, one nil.

I wen to sleep for 1 hour and it was all over. I stayed up until god knows when to watch the cricket and finally it started, I saw the first wicket of the night fall, Jones tried to pull McGrath, and then I fell asleep. 1 Hour later it was all over. Story of our cricketing lives, things going bad, just wait an hour it will right itself.
Good Night Lads.

Bugger it. Still, its nice to be the underdog (cf. RWC Final 2003).

I'm going away for a little bit. I'll be back soon.
(Good old Weasel for bringing up the Rugby!!)

Weasel, I don't think we were favourites in that game. As I recall it, you guys came here pumped up and beat everyone. We were the underdogs and if not for that prick, Wilkinson, you'd still be celebrating the '66 World cup.

Aaaah, back to the correct world order.

Oooh. Do I hear a back up?

Now, no whinging about not being good enough, thats our job. Next you'll start claiming the food was funny or that the weather was off. We may have had the form, but come on; playing Australia in Australia after taking the hard route to the final and after scrambling to pull back the decade long head start you lot had on professionalism after you cheated like a bunch of kiwis (ARFU 'development officer' job, oh promising fly half?) and we were the favorites? It doesn't matter now anyway as both England and the Lions are shit again.

One last World Cup note. Your biggest mistake in that game was playing Joe Mangle at full back. That boy had hair like a rugby league player and was punished accordingly.

Ahhh, this is where I show my complete lack of knowledge, and the internet is letting me down. Who looks like Joe Mangles?

Matt Rogers

Mark Little, aka Joe Mangle

OK, I thought is was Matt Rogers, he played crap that night. The resemblence is sort of there. Matt looks like someone else as well but I can't put my finger on it.

I can't believe it, Joe Mangle is back in Erinsborough. He's back in the show today. Must have run out of work in Blighty.
