I absolutely cannot stand football or most of the players but rugby is an entirely different ball game (quite literally!) I am most definitely a rugby girl & was on the edge of my seat in most places going mad at the tv earlier, my throat is a little sore but it was so worth it.
Not only did we beat Australia to end up in the semis but we beat France today, on their home ground (which makes it all so much sweeter) to win a place in the finals.
They have to bring the cup home, they can't lose it now after the play they've been putting on.
We definitely need a repeat of 2003
Lewsey & where the game began without stopping for us.
Jonny Wilkinson, who really needs to stay fit & not end up with (another) injury.
England played one hell of a game today, it got close once or twice but they just kept pulling it back. Can't wait for the finals but I will be gutted if they don't bring the cup home.
I'm also a tiny bit jealous as my older brother, who used to play rugby for the county, was in Paris watching the game the same as he was for the 2003 world cup in Australia. Some people have all the luck!
Edited because for some ridiculous reason I put that we beat the All Blacks in the semis. Where the hell I got that idea from I do not know! That's what you get for blogging at two in the morning!
