Englishmen: Who are you supporting now

Discussion in 'Rugby Union Discussion' started by Howe, Oct 9, 2015.

  1. Howe JHF Howe


    For: Underdogs, getting some attractive rugby in, a lot of Premiership players
    Against: Why set yourself up to fail


    For: Probably playing the best out of everyone in the tournament now
    Against: League fans


    For: Them winning would probably involve something hilarious and insane
    Against: Them losing would probably involve something hilarious and insane


    For: Support a good NH team that hasn't won the trophy yet
    Against: 10 man rugby, have a history of carking it in the quarter finals

    New Zealand

    For: Most likely to win
    Against: Why is that a reason


    For: Big underdogs
    Against: Guff written about 'bravery' would be unbearable

    South Africa

    For: I'm struggling. Erm. Bryan Habana has a fun goofy smile when he scores
    Against: Do you need me to tell you why not to support the springboks


    For: NH team with a chance, be a good comeback story having been written off with their injuries, can say we lost to the winning team, a gun Wales team usually leads to a gun Lions team
    Against: Bugger Wales, why are you even considering this
  2. BigDougy DG Dafter

    Anyone apart from the Welsh cunts.
  3. Mariner CL Warrington

    Will be going for Scotland & France.

    Ireland and South Africa for me. Always found Ireland to be my second NH team, and the arrogance of the SH is really irritating so would be grand if the Irish could carry the flag. Apart from that I really don't like the other 6N teams barring Italy who are out and SA are the best of the other contenders
  6. cloughie09 TJ Clough

    Would have to be the all blacks simply because I can't stand most other countries on the list that and they actually play rugby
  7. Riddy JH Ridd

    im supporting Savea for financial reasons
  8. Callum CJ Laing

    "Against: Guff written about 'bravery' would be unbearable"

    Welcome to our world. Everything written by the English media is unbearable.
  9. Baxter MJ Deane

    Nz v Ireland final
  10. Fiery GR Smith

    Hope so Baxter. That would be a nice easy one.
  11. Furball G Furball

  12. Madness B Morganpola

    Really struggling to nail my colours to a new team.....

    .....but not Scotland, SA or NZ
  13. The Boy Brumby ZJ Brumby

    Falling back on my Irish grandfather.

    Which makes me more Irish than certain centres...
  14. Rego RS Hutchinson

    That's what people said about the 2011 final :ninja:
  15. Cribbage RG Cribb

    I feel more than a bit cheeky pretending Howe had people like me in mind when he started this thread but I do support England in international rugby union so I'll go ahead and answer it: I'm supporting Wales now.
  16. Callum CJ Laing

    I am sure Wales will be very sad to hear an English rugby fan is supporting them.
  17. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Haha yes probably :laugh:
  18. Furball G Furball

    What is wrong with you?
  19. Alex Mediocre MBE A Mediocre

    That's why I'm supporting France. They can be as smug as they like. They can go on on about 2015 like a beer-bellied Englishman yacking on about '66. They can crow about the win until kingdom come.

    But it will all be in French, and if it aint about baguettes, I aint listening Francois.
