    Yea - sorry - impossible was in its usually exaggerated tense i use it...I was attempting to infer it was very laboured (atleast in my case) so i resorted to half-breaths in the slide - i do want to point out that this is not a common occurance, and i am obscenely accident prone as soon as i involve myself with competitive sport!

    which is the best stroke to exercise the tops of your legs, do you think? is it font crawl or breast stroke?
    I would say BS. But both are good.

    Yay, went to Gatcombe yesterday, saw some absolutely fantastic riders and had to practically physically restrain my friend to prevent her stealing a pony!! Unfortunately I'm not horrendously sunburnt, but it was worth it!! We saw the Shetland Grand National heats, a natural horsemanship demonstration and a dressage to music demonstration (which was absolutely amazing!!) as well as the Open dressage, showjumping and cross country!!

    Union - I also think league looks daft with this tackles thing and how you have to stand up and pass the ball through your legs when you are tackled

    Does anyone here go sailing?

    Or own a boat? My family own a Mylne (if anyuone knows what that is!) and are possibly - most probably buying a Fife.

    We sail on the River Mersey and go to the Menai Strait Regattas every summer to sail there. It's fab.

    If you really want to play volleyball you'd join a team outside uni or school or college.

    Union is far better to watch and play, the ball doesn't have to be turned over after a certain number of tackles so it flows more easier.
    have u ever actually watched a league game it flows much easier than union even tho the ball has 2 b turned over every six tackles. the tackles r more skillful not a free 4 all and much tidier 2 make it a better spectator sport. the game is passionate skillful as shown a few years ago when 2 league teams sent teams 2 play in a six a side union comp featuring their best teams and bradford wiped the floor with them all showing how much fitter they were. final point andrew farrell never played a competitive game of union in his career and has walked straight into the england side 4 nxt yr i cant think of a single union player who could do that.

    Andy Farrell has got into a huge England training squad, not the team. And anyway, how is citing one person any proof? Look at Iestyn Harris. He was the best league had to offer and he was utter horse in union.

    Btw, I pick union, because scrummaging / rucking / mauling / lineouts require such skill.

    Union, far more skill involved and much more free flowing and exciting.

    i m predicting definite victory for aussies on the 3rd test. The absence of Lee wont make a difference, because Mc Grill is even better in swing bowlings. England can only hope for a victory if Warne gets injury as well.lol.

    they can't bowl warne and mcgrill the whole time though, and gippo and casper got spanked all over the ground at edgbaston...
    I think we shall have to wait and see what the pitch looks like before we start really guessing...
    hopefully vaughan will bowl himself though - he's actually a really good spinner (he can turn it further than giles, although thats not saying much....)
