    Southern Hemisphere Super Rugby

    Hi guys, I see a few Rugby Union fanatics on the chat. Big fan of the game and played it for 30+ years and have the body to prove it Any way our season kicks off in a few weeks 15th Feb with the Chiefs V's Highlanders, two NZ teams. I'll keep you posted and rugby nuts feel free to add anything here. P.S I'm a Waratahs fan!

    Sheep farmers and rugby go together. Doddie Weir one of Scotland's best rugby players is a sheep farmer as are/was several others.

    Paul, there is a PSU member from Queensland (I think) who occasionally posts here. His nephew is a good player (a hooker for the Brumbies, I recall). I suspect he will chip in when he sees your thread.

    I used to play for Musselburgh RUFC and also for London Irish RUFC. My brother was an excellent player - 8 seasons hooking for Sale RUFC first team (with Fran Cotton as one of his props and Steve Smith as his scrum half!)

    I now have back trouble as a legacy of those days, but the guys these days will end up with much worse than that by the time they hit their sixties.


    EDIT The guy's name is Shaun, but I can't remember his forum moniker.

    Hi Chris, yes my nephew, Connal McInerney,has recently signed a 2 year contract with the brumbies. I'm not from Queensland however but a small town outside of Canberra called Queanbeyan.
    So far he's had 2 pre season games, one was against the Waratahs and I can't remember who the other was against.

    So the Super Rugby is off to a good start and the teams are settling in to their stride. Hurricanes V's Brumbies should be a good game and the Sharks from Natal and the Cape Town Stormers, a belter. No love lost there! My beloved Tahs lost to to the Hurricanes in round 1 and beat the new Japan based Sunwolves buy a point in round 2, I guess and Inch is a good as a mile! Got to say that the Southern Hemisphere style is much better than the North, that should start a riot in 3......2.....1

    A bit off topic but dealing with the first rugby injury of the season.
    Liam my youngest son (15 years old) got a stud through his left hand at training on Monday night and I'm at the hospital with him as he's suffered nerve damage and requires surgery, and yes,you guessed it, he's left handed. Once they knock him out and wheel him into the theater I feel a falcon with macbarens dark fired coming up.
    Have a great day fellas.

    Thanks for the wishes fellas. Liam got out of the hospital yesterday and the doctor thinks that the operation was a success. He can't train or work for a couple of weeks but he is expected to recover.
