I don't know. I really wanted to be there, but I have college :mad:, but it is really good to hear it makes you feel proud. I get fed up with people sl*gging off this country, despite the fact that they love to sponge off us... I think that the day in which we won the IRB World Cup should be a national holiday - I bet that if they knew that it would take so long to win again back in 1966, they would have made it a national holiday...

So all together...

"Looked over Jordan, what did I see?
comin' for to carry the Webb Elis Cup home..."

Its good that finally there is a sport where England prove themselves as being the best, rather than underperforming, as they do in other sports.

Much better than those bloody Prima Donna's who call themselves sportsmen... Yeah, that right, footballers.

Rugby, a game for ruffians, played by gentlemen...

I finished uni at 11:00, though left at aroung 11:30 and was wondering whether to go to the victory parade or not. Unfortunately, I had a driving lesson so I couldn't, but I'd have loved to be there, especially for the atmosphere.

Just saw some highlights on the news. Good stuff.

Seems bizarre to do it on a weekday though.

Just watched it on the news, and wish I had been there. The atmosphere seemed brill, and it would be a day to remember for all present (which unfortunately didn't include me)

Have ya seen the pictures in the 'papers? I think it was a crime for us to be made to attend out 'academic institutions' instead of watching it.

Forget o2 - I'm a proud supporter of the victorious England Rugby Team...
