i seem to remember Vinnige Fanie de Villiers ("fast funny devil ears" to the Aussie commentators) did a burger ad to the song "one Fanie burger". i am sure it was a double cheese burger. he was the best.

the cool thing about this site, you can pick up an argument after 278 days as if nothing happened. when i try that with the missus, she drops her lip.

Twice is reiteration. thrice, however, is overkill.

when my wife was expecting our first child I made her a VERY comfortable seat in the sand dunes there at Brandon Bay and gave her a good book to read... it was 3 to 4 ft, offshore and there was one other guy out. Sigh

That's one of the best shots I've seen on this website! Is there any chance that you can provide us with a bigger version of this picure?

Nick MSW Feb 17, 2009 Rating: 3

Sorry guys, we'd love to have full screen sized copies of each photo but we have like 80,000 pics now and need multiple copies of each one so disk space is a real issue. We are looking at changing this but I can't promise a timeframe.

bbking's avatar

bbking Feb 16, 2009 Rating: 10

Hey Grunn, thats the biggest it goes for the site :( they compresse the photo size down when you upload it.

chaval is a medievil nightmare. you gotta love the guy or he'll eat you. oh no! talking about rugby on a surfing site i hope i dont get in trouble with the purists

Didier's avatar

Didier Feb 18, 2009 Rating: 19

Chaval is a proper Gaul.. you could see him fightin off the Roman invaders with his spear and sheild! If he was charging at me i think i would also hand him the ball and then cower in hte corner!

mantis's avatar

mantis Feb 17, 2009 Rating: 4

I think if I was running down field and chaval was in front of me I would politely hand him the ball and cry. you can never count out the english, S.A. or the kiwis of course. redundant statement I know

nope, Manteets. I just mentioned I thought Ireland looked beautifull and would like to go and was rated negatively, so I wondered what was going on. I now think it is in fact the Irish who dread the thought of me coming over. p.s. congrats for thumping France.
