    realistic odds cindy...
    Yeah, you're comment is suitable considering this website that compares the bookies odds from over 19 bookmakers!

    Ireland to win 1/33
    Draw 66/1
    Italy to win 33/1

    Still, bookmakers aren't always right, despite the fans wishful thinking.

    Geoffrey boycott talks a load of rubbish really. Before the england vs pak series he said that england will walk all over pakistan with a whitewash. How wrong he was.

    I think he became a cricketer because he had a few shillings in his pocket which got him in the team, or maybe the selectors were drunk when he was picked.
    Actually, given that England had beaten the number 1 team, it wasn't entirely without basis. However, if you noted, just before the 1st Test vs Pakistan, after the practise matches, he said it would be very difficult for England to win, and predicted that Pakistan would win at Multan (which they did).

    As for his Test record, it is as outstanding as it gets. And you don't play for 22 years for a few shillings.

    Boycott was a great batsman. Pakistan have found a gem in Asif. Tall, nippy, swings it too.

    Asif, Gul, Arafat, Rana and Shoaib. Plus some other promising youngsters, the future looks bright.

    For the best value, check out NSP boards. They are bulk made instead of custom, and are manufactured from slightly different materials. Because of this they are lot cheaper, but really, really good for beginners because they are stronger, i.e. can be battered about and not snap, like a custom board is more likely to do. Also, because mini-mals are like gold dust to buy second hand, they hold their value really well, so when you decide to upgrade to a smaller board, you shouldn't have lost too much of the money you paid out in the first place on the board. Go into your local surf shop and talk to someone who is actually an experienced surfer, they should tell you to buy a mini-mal because you get better buoyancy and can get into the wave easier, which is what you need to be doing to progress. Don't let them sell you anything below about 7' because you will get really frustrated in the surf and won't progress, and therefore the board will be a total waste of money!

    Lets not forget Mike Hailwood, on the podium in his first few races for maclaren, then nurburgring.
    But F1 isnt the same as it was then. And neither is motorcycling. They have grown further apart in the specialist skills they require. I certainly don't think its anywhere near as easy as once it was.

    Its a whole different ballgame now

    I'll second for that-be carefull if you're going around shops etc-go somewhere recommened cos there's loads of crooks out there trying to sell you whatever they can't get rid of, definitely don't go smaller than 7'3" and width is very important too-should be at least 21-22" wide and 2 3/4 thick ish.btw don't mean to be rude but how much do you weigh etc? bic boards are alright for learning too if you can pick up one cheap ish. When you buy the board if it's 2nd hand check for and open 'dings' these are just cracks in the board-but little scratches etc are fine, just make sure they haven't gone through the glass as water will get inside the board.
    have a sieve through some websites and look at info for newbies
    www.bbc.co.uk/wales/surfing
    www.uksurfgirls.co.uk
    www.surfgirlmag.co.uk or www.carvemag.co.uk
    are you a girl or a guy? ignore the girly ones if you're a ghuy btw if you want!!

    Hell yea! England were on amazing form come the second half, when everything settled...and once again a dodgy try decision at Lansdowne Road () - oh well - Ireland just about deserved to scrape a win...but without that try it would have been 10 points closer (really - there wouldn't have been the fighting if it they were close).

    Cant wait to see the scotland match now - should be amazing.
