Yesterday’s radio show was a lot of fun. I spent the first half hour of the show talking to the very talented Jack Wolf about his amazing new novel, The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones. The book is … Continue reading
This week the UK media is full of stories about how aggressive gays will be sneaking into your bedroom at night to wreck your marriage, corrupt your kids, turn your wife into a feminist, force you to marry your dog, … Continue reading
Last night’s edition of Shout Out is now available online. You can find their Listen Again service here. There are no direct links to shows, so make sure you look for April 11th. Alternatively, here’s the mp3. The interview starts … Continue reading
Cracking game it was too. Apologies to all the people in the pub in Bristol whom I deafened with my delighted shrieking.
Here is how the BBC is reporting the state of the Six Nations table after the first weekend’s matches. Of course it could just be incompetence. How else are they going to explain this (from the same page)? Couldn’t follow … Continue reading
Bring on the French.
The first couple of weeks of the Rugby World Cup are a bit dull for the casual fan, especially from the nations with better teams. Basically the group stage is all about letting teams like the USA, Japan and Russia … Continue reading
The Rugby World Cup kicks off in New Zealand tomorrow (well, today their time). You can expect me to be spending a lot of time on front of the TV getting very depressed as Wales embarrass themselves against Samoa and … Continue reading
Today I have ding production on Salon Futura #6 and watching rugby. The former you’ll see on Monday, I hope. The latter, well laughing at the Scottish rugby team isn’t really fair. But I did want to pop in briefly … Continue reading
Well, that was a lot closer than it had any right to be. The Wellington Lions lived up to the reputation of their namesakes in the first half — they spent most of the time laying around yawning. As a … Continue reading
One of the things I have never done on my visits to New Zealand is attend a rugby match. It so happens that the Wellington Lions are playing a home game on the Saturday of Au Contraire. Kick off is … Continue reading
Italy and Scotland fought out a close match in Rome. It wasn’t great rugby, but the two sides were fairly evenly matched. Italy came out ahead by 16-12, primarily because they were able to score a try while Scotland, despite … Continue reading
France came to Cardiff this evening with a game plan. For the first forty minutes they looked like a cultured Premiership soccer club playing the away leg of a Champion’s League tie. “We know,” they said, “that you are under … Continue reading
Well, that was a thoroughly uninspired performance by England. In the end they won 17-12, but the result was in doubt for much of the match, and had Lewis Moody been yellow-carded for taking McLean out in the air, which … Continue reading
During the first half of the game against Wales Scottish winger, Thom Evans (brother of try scorer Max and cousin of BBC DJ Chris) was stretchered off after going head first into a tackle. The report during the game was … Continue reading
I’m sure it is very convenient for the Welsh Rugby Union to have sponsorship from Cardiff’s local brewery. However, I am concerned that all this talk of “Brains” around the team may have attracted the wrong sort of attention; beings … Continue reading
The third and final game of this weekend’s 6 Nations matches was between Scotland and France. Jerry Guscott noted earlier in the week that statistically France tends to win the 6 (or 5) Nations in years following a Lions tour. … Continue reading
In sport there games that you win, games that you lose, and games that you give away. Wales gave away today’s game against England. The game turned on an incident about 5 minutes before half time when Alun Wyn Jones … Continue reading
