    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
