    ...anyone else spot the disclaimer at the bottom saying that he doesn't need to use the funds for his legal action. Con artist.

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Me and my mate were talking about this the other day. Maybe something like as everyone is surrendering she goes straight for the Red Keep and Cersei. Blows the **** out of it...setting off a chain reaction of wildfire that decimates the city, becoming the Mad Queen who blew up King Landing in...

    Yeah I delved into the leaks too... not regretting reading them at all.

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Well that was genuinely a bit awful. Lots of cool explosions and stuff, but god awful plot... Dany's descent into madness - wayyy too quick. While she's obviously got a burny streak about her, she's never gone after innocents like this and feels like the flip to the mad side happened in...

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Am I the only one struggling to really give a sh*t about the battle for the throne now? Always felt like the earlier seasons had the theme that the intrigue around who held the throne was the petty, bloodthirsty squabbles of the nobility that was gonna pale in comparison to the threat from the...

    Also true... I have spent a stupid amount of time playing Total War games over the years so maybe that's where the chip on my shoulder is coming from! As for Rhaegal - I have a feeling he might have survived as we just saw him crash, not die? Basically I imagine if we didn't see someone...

    Yeah I think the Bran warging into the crows was the draw the NK in maybe, as he was just chilling up there out of sight? Watched it again, and definitely enjoyed it a hell of a lot more. Still not convinced on the battle plan, but do kinda get the whole "Dothraki do what Dothraki wanna do"...

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Like I definitely enjoyed the episode, but still feel like it needed more? All the shots of the carnage in the courtyard did make me laugh as despite all the death and destruction... the main cast are somehow all more or less the last ones standing? Completely agree with Tigs though - **** me...

    How come Heidelberg weren't involved at all this time ? Didn't qualify at all, or still angry about last years debacle of them being barred from entering the challenge cup?

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    I always thought only those killed by the White Walkers / their wights were able to be brought back, and everyone north of the Wall just burned their dead as a precaution no matter how they died? Don't think that's ever been explicitly stated either way, but always assumed that was the case...

    Game of Thrones has really made us blood thirsty hasn't it?

    Game of Thrones Discussion [SPOILERS]

    Really enjoyed how the opening of the episode mirrored Robert's arrival at Winterfell in the first episode - young kid scrambling up to get a better view as the royalty / soldiers march towards the castle, exact same music etc. Rewatched the first series not too long ago and did think to myself...

    Your 31 man Squad and Starting 15 for Your country in the Rugby World Cup 2019 guys part 2 :)

    Maybe, but likely he'd have to show he's match fit and ready in the August warm ups which may be difficult considering he's unlikely to play for the Scarlets again. Gatland values him and the line out skills he brings so wouldn't be shocked to see him make the cut either way.

    2019 6 Nations team of the tournament.

    Can't say I'd be quite as picky when it comes to the positions as oj, but for me it's probably hard to justify Nowell ahead of Adams. May was the best winger overall, but Adams isn't far behind and definitely next in line and ahead of Nowell for the other wing spot. As for Slade vs JD2 - both...

    [2019 Six Nations] England v Scotland (16/03/2019)

    In the interest of fairness, should probably also mention how good Launchbury and May's tried were as well - some sublime offloading skills from Genge and Slade. Few people have picked up on Tuilagi's tackle on Johnson in the first half: https://twitter.com/GLove39/status/1107414280889094145...

    [2019 Six Nations] England v Scotland (16/03/2019)

    Hell of a game. Pub I was in in Cardiff was bouncing during the second half watching the Scottish comeback! The third Scottish try (by Bradbury I think?) was a thing of beauty, and probably my try of the tournament - the chip and chase from Price followed by the beauty of a pass and a superb...

    [2019 Six Nations] Wales v Ireland (16/03/2019)

    Tbf, defensively JD2 has been outstanding. His spot tackling is a massive reason why Wales have excelled defensively so far this tournament. Obviously hasn't fired as much in attack, but hasn't been awful. Still banging that drum I see ;) I can see why, considering the English midlands hasn't...

    Right wing terrorist attack in NZ

    Fair few newspapers here have put up clips too - Mirror, Sun etc. Absolutely mental that they can get away with showing it. My sister is a journalist and always kicks off about this, especially as even if you miss it on the news sites, it's only a matter of time before it filters onto your...

    [2019 Six Nations] England v Scotland (16/03/2019)

    Only just noticed this :eek: I like how Eddie has gone from picking ALL OF THE LOCKS... to none on the bench. Either way. Needs more locks.

    [2019 Six Nations] Wales v Ireland (16/03/2019)

    Considering it's an Irish term (I assume anyway), I'll give you it this time... In return can we have the Grandslam? K thanks.
