View Full Version : A small strange carpe diem

19-03-2010, 06:02 PM
I have just purchased 2 tickets for the Women's Rugby World Cup Final on Sept 5th at the Harlequins ground in Twickenham.

I just now have to work out who will go with me and how we will get there and back on a Sunday. :unsure:

Had to be done. :D

19-03-2010, 06:18 PM

21-03-2010, 11:39 AM
Gosh, wouldn't that be such fun? :yes:

21-03-2010, 12:28 PM
Nanny Lesley has snatched up my spare ticket. :mental:

21-03-2010, 01:06 PM

21-03-2010, 01:22 PM
And there's a fairly good chance England will make the final. :mental: :mental: :mental:

21-03-2010, 03:00 PM
:9: :9: :9:

Sounds like a women's day out!!! Make it a good 'un Dawn! :D :D

Uh oh. :eek: Ya' aren't gonna' sing the Alice song at the end are ya'? :eek:

21-03-2010, 03:28 PM
Be wicked if there was a player called Alice in the final. :rotfl:

21-03-2010, 05:11 PM
The final is also 1 week after we get back from Orlando so hopefully will help with post-trip blues. And if it runs to form then the final should be England vs New Zealand. I'll get to see the Haka in real life. :mental: :mental: :mental:

21-03-2010, 11:02 PM
I have to admit that I didn't know that women even played rugby, let alone that there were enough to play to have a world championship.

22-03-2010, 07:39 AM
Oooo do the ladies dop a Haka too? Wasn't sure if they did or not.

If so thats wicked and worth the price of admission alone :D

22-03-2010, 07:57 AM
Yep the girls do the Haka. They had to get special permission though as usually the call to battle is a man thing. :lol:

John at the moment the England girls are playing much better than the boys. :rolleyes:

And the first women's world cup was won by the USA. It's quite popular in the collegiate system. :thumbsup:

22-03-2010, 08:27 PM
Yes indeed ,

there are 2 types as well John League and Union - and they keep changing the rules - certainly the Union they play now has a lot more rules than when I was at school - league used to be a bit more like American football

23-03-2010, 07:55 AM
League is silly - you tackle the player and let them get up and keep the ball. :unsure:

Union is the purists game. :D

23-03-2010, 08:01 AM
I'm far more confident knowing what is going on in Union, could never get the hang of chicken scratching in league :D

You are going to have an awesome time mate, pics please :D

23-03-2010, 08:03 AM
Of course I'll be taking my small, inadequate 10x digital zoom camera. :lol:

Wonder if they swap shirts at the end. :D

23-03-2010, 08:06 AM

23-03-2010, 12:52 PM

See? I KNEW we should have gone! :lol:

Do you remember when the US Women won in soccer and the player whipped of her shirt and waved it over her head? :lol: EVERYONE went bonkers. It's not like anything important was showing either! :lol:

23-03-2010, 01:47 PM
Football Tink, football ;) you see they use their feet to kick the ball and it was invented a looong time before US 'football'

Rugby was said to have been inventer when somone at Rugby school picked up theball and ran with it.

The main drawback is that the ladies wont really look at their best with cauliflower ears missing teeth gumshields and thighs the size of the average sized family car

I find it gairy

23-03-2010, 01:48 PM
Yep. I know. I was just joining in on the shirts off discussion part. :lol:

23-03-2010, 01:49 PM
one track mind :rolleyes: :lol:
