    T'was a good game indeed. Well done boys. I always think the English rugby players show so much more spirit than the football players, they're all soft pretty boys who get paid far too much to come on the pitch pull each others shirts, call each other names and disrespect the referee. They don't ever really be able to pull themselves up when things look bad, they seem to get despondent and give in and tem blame other people for it.

    Was vair vair surprised at how England managed to get themselves together again so quickly and I soooooooo want to see someone give the 'uptheirownarse' South Africans a thrashing - assuming they beat Argentina of course.

    Nice to see a lot of the AB's fans staying around to support the English too.

    Koko, did you text *everyone* in your phone book?

    It was a really good game. I have to admit, I was pulling for England. I certainly didn't want to see a France-SA final. There'd be no reason to watch, other than to hope for a blimp to crash into the stadium.

    Maybe sometime we can arrange a special remote, on-location broadcast from Chch. Or we can do like Rove and meet in some caravan park--in NZ, not OZ of course. (Which no one who doesn't watch Rove will understand.)

    Great idea - Rove the second!

    You can actually do a live phone-in to the DJ using Skype if you have it available. In the meantime, you should come into the Radio Room while we're on air and type what you have to say - Dawn will answer any questions (provided she reads the questions typed!). If you can understand her strange english accent, she provides a lot of entertainment!

    So, how we gonna set up this caravan park thingy?
