    MrK I looked at the tip on that website you mentioned and had a flutter on a few that were on there, I have to say I did very well out of it, I put on £15 in total and made £70 back, not a bad profit.

    I won on Noland & Dun Doire.

    That site you mentioned had great tips on there.

    Going back to the discussion on who will win the gold cup on Friday, I have to say I am going to back Kingscliff (unless the weather changes).


    You got to love horse racing!!

    Developing stamina is simply a matter of running.

    And running. And running more.

    Try jogging during the week - perhaps integrating interval training, dashing and then slowing, and vice versa. To really tax yourself, mix in running backwards, from side to side, while alternately slowing, dashing, and stopping altogether randomly, before dashing once more. Quite strenuous.

    I would also recommend, as odd as it might sound, a skipping rope. There’s a reason that professional boxers, who can actively perform to their maximum potential over thirty-six minute, 12 round long fights use it as a staple in their regime. Not only does it increase stamina, it makes you lighter on your feet (perhaps speeding you up for that beep test/running generally), co-ordination, etc.

    To shed those extra pounds, do as I've said above, which will certainly increase stamina. If the fat doesn't shed as well as you would like, I advise mixing the exercise with a good diet.

    Four 10 minute quarters in international games (40 mins), and four 12 minute quarters in NBA and NCAA games (48 mins).
    NCAA games are actually made up of two 20 minutes halves

    I really am shocked to see that lewsey has been dropped, my friend mentioned it yest(shes not a big rugby fan and i thought she'd got it wrong)
    As for Joe Worsely, I think he's steady enough, not fantastic but not bad, what amazes me is the way that he was motm at the powergen semis for wasps but never has the same form at international level. As a wasps fan I have to stand up for lewsey and worsley, as an Irish fan.... well i cant wait for saturday!

    I agree - for wasps he loves to get stuck in...for country he seems almost shy to take the ball in hand, his tackle count isn't as impressive and his work on the floor is overshadowed by others, and when he does, he gives away penalties... (yes, I know moody is similar, but thats not the point...)

    I personally think corry, moody and dallaglio as a back 3 would be perfect - they all have the floor skills, but dayglo has the loose play skills that worsley doesn't. I was originally calling for corry to be dropped, but he has really proved himself in the last few games - him and moody were, in my mind, the only ones who impressed against france.

    This year seems to be THE year of sporting events - Winter Olympics, Commonwealth Games and in June/July, the World Cup.

    I just worry that the Commonwealth Games television coverage will get in the way of me working on 5000 word university finals assessments...but that's a lame excuse, if anything 'Deal or No Deal' and 'Richard & Judy' will be equally to blame. Nevertheless , anxieties aside, i'm looking forward towards the Badminton coverage. I was at Manchester in 2002, a day out to watch the Badminton and Hockey, pretty good day out but the day comprised of stronger memories of having to put up with one of my younger brothers friends - a complete annoying t**t throughout the day. He remains a t**t to this day.

    Other memories - at the Hockey Matches, the music being pumped out was 'The Kinks' (dedicated follower/s of fashion), that was cool, and when the official for one of the hockey matches fell over, "Help...I need somebody" by The Beatles. All round hilarities for all.

    Im considering getting one. Does it take batteries? Also is it worth getting the neon one which costs £3 more?

    Another question, does it actually help give you mroe strength in the arms and wrist?

    Thanks

    No, it doesn't take batteries, yes - the neon one is so much cooler.

    Its helped me a fair amount, but everyone is different - but I would recommend you give it a go.
