Hello everybody ! I'm Stephane, from South West of France.... Good luck for all for the World Cup ...And, Allez les Bleus !


Hi all!!! A new guy from Italy



I'm Luke. From Donegal/Belfast.

Expecting France to win world cup, but hoping Ireland can scrape it.

I like food, outdoors and long walks :eek:

I'm also sometimes a musician, studying music technology in belfast.


Why not tell a bit more about yourself? Just saying where you're from isn't helping us to get to know you, or we'd have to go by international clichés.

That would make blinded not too tall, dark haired, dark skinned, moustached. He'd also have a temper (and he'd be living in the country that has the best tortilla in the world, eat your heart out Mexico!), be addicted to soccer (see, that already doesn't fit in) and know several girls named 'Maria'.

davo would live in the middle of nowhere, driving a car at the age of fourteen, being tutored via radio since the nearest school is 150 km away, and knowing a lot of girls named 'pippa'. You'd also have a pet kangaroo and say things like 'barbie', when you mean barbecue (although I heard someone in the US say that too).

Just giving two examples of how wrong clichés are, so why not elaborate?

(don't mean to insult anyone, just standard nonsense that is in my mind tied with Spain and Australia)

Hello people of the rugbying internet, I am AllezWasps (or Jack)

I support London Wasps, as well as a few international sides.

I have quite a big selection of heritage so it allows me to support England (my Fathers side are mostly English) France (my Mothers side is from France) Ireland (my grandmother is from Munster) and even Kenya (my Father was brought up there for 15 years) so I usually enjoy the top 3 in the Six Nations :p

I got into rugby about 10 years ago, but only found a real interest in it after the 2003 Six Nations, and of course, the Rugby World Cup 2003. The same season I had Wasps winning the Heineken Cup and Zurich Prem double, so that was nice :cheers: .

Looking forward to talking rugby with you all, and looking forward to the new season coming up :) .

hello! I'm Elk from Mexico, currently living in Australia, my favorite team are the Brumbies



Hi folks. I'm new.

Live in London and follow Wasps, Natal Sharks, Western Force (basically anyone Ruan Pienaar and Matt Giteau play for :p). Support England first always, but have a major soft spot for the Springboks now.

I lived in Durban for 2 years (2004-6) which is why I love the S14 and the Sharks. Haven't played proper competitive rugby for several years but am in my Law School team (wing or cover scrumhalf). Used to play Wing or Cover #13 for my high school/sixth form teams.

Love music (most rock genres except screamo) but anything catchy is good. Have played drums for 14 years and am kinda semi-pro. I'm a Law student (2nd year).

Hi everybody !!! I'm The Dodô_Ône from France. Biarritz, France & Samoa fan.


Afternoon Guys,

Dean here, 22 year old back row player, who's now living in Vancouver, Canada, but grew up in England.

Played for Esher, Newbury, London Irish and represented Surrey County, and I'm now playing for a small DIV 2 team in Vancouver called The Scribes.

Having played Rugby since I was 7, I've recently renewed my interest again, and I'm working my way to try and play DIV 1 Rugby with one of the local teams, and hopefully getting some good run outs!
