I got the idea of this when Wales won the 6 nations (rugby) on Saturday 16th, in fact they won the grand slam. Thought it might be worth sharing.

Six Nations
TeamPWDL-/+BPPts
1Wales550049023
2England531183418
3Ireland53021214
4France5203-25210
5Scotland5113-2039
6Italy5005-8800

As luck would have it on this day in 24 March 1956 Wales beats France, 5-3 at the National Stadium, Cardiff to clinch their 13th Five Nations Rugby Championship. On the same day 1975 Muhammad Ali TKOs Chuck Wepner in 15 for heavyweight boxing title,

With the Rugby World cup starting in Japan on September 20 (Japan Vs Russia) and the on going European championship already starting with England opening very well 5-0 against the Czech Republic and France's 4-1 win over Moldova, there should be plenty to talk about.

I could fill the whole internet with the sadness of being a Jock and following Scottish teams regardless of the sport but hey we are not bad at curling! But I still and always will have a bet on any team playing England, I am sole responsible for the high demand of mars bars sold in the UK it’s me paying my depts it’s in a Jock’s DNA to want England to loose.

I remember as a junior soldier going to the PTI's training camp on Saturday mornings for swimming training during the 'club mornings'. After our hour it was the girls synchro swimming. We'd get changed and then hang around goggling at them.:geek:
