    Smashing them back

    No-one suggested everyone in Wales likes Rugby. I'm not certain which post you think implied that. I must say, this forum has, in recent months, descended from a welcoming, friendly place where ideas could be exchanged and opinions sought into a lace where posts are lambasted, criticized and...

    Smashing them back

    I intentionally took the gender out of it so it didn't descend into a discussion of sexism, misogyny and domestic violence. I was genuinely asking if anyone had heard the phrase in a rugby context. Clearly you are all above such considerations.

    Smashing them back

    As stated, it was suggested that this was a well known rugby phrase. I'm not clear why you think a politics forum is a better place than a rugby forum to ask about rugby phrases.

    Throwing sand

    Why was he throwing sand at all? Maybe his opponent was distracted for a moment wondering if he was going to have sand thrown at him. Perhaps he was just a bit bored while taking part in a scrum and needed something to occupy himself. Throwing sand has no place in the game and your defense of...

    Throwing sand

    You don't think he threw any sand? I think you should look again a little more closely. Perhaps you were too keen to rush of and write your ridiculous, self-aggrandizing criticism of others to actually consider what happened. It's a shame you consider that everyone who has Twitter account is...
