So... the Six Nations is here again and nothing stirs up the hearts and minds like a little bit of rugby union.
What is the Six Nations? A rugby tournament featuring England, Wales, Ireland (north and south), Scotland, Fance and Italy (they only joined in 2000).
So me and my brother-in-law Carl (the mysterious CF), and in more recent years, my sister-in-law Caroline, are always surrounded by pumped up testosterone filled Irish/Scots desperate to kick the a$$ of the arrogant English b@*****s (their term, not mine). Now being an arrogant English b@***** myself, I generally keep my head down and my trap shut, because seriously I'm not stupid, but today I just thought I'd say 'well done England' very very quietly!!!
And... Ahem. Well done Ireland too :) They beat Wales 19:9
From the BBC:
Jonny Wilkinson admitted finding it hard to take in after his long-awaited return to the international scene.
Wilkinson, who was playing his first game for England since 2003, was man of the match in Saturday's 42-20 win over Scotland in the Six Nations.
"It feels strange - it's been three and a bit years since I've experienced the buzz of an international," he said.
"I guess to be back after some of the feelings I've had over my injury periods feels like a bit of a dream."
Wilkinson had not played for England since guiding them to victory in the World Cup final because of a catalogue of injuries.
