England were pragmatic. Australia were pretty awful.

We finally have a decent full back. Amazing how long it took Fast Eddie to realise that playing a 15 at 15 would work.

Tom Curry is a world class flanker, he is not a world class no 8.

Will need to play 20% better (that is a scientific FACT) against SA or we will lose.

How about that for a review?

Pretty comprehensive. Could have mentioned that floppy-haired dandy at flyhalf but worth the wait.

If he carries on playing like he has he can have any haircut he wants. I was impressed when one of the Wallaby centers decided he didn't like the haircut either and really hammered Smith, only Smith got up and jogged off leaving the Australian lying on the floor in pain.

That Irish winger also has a lot to answer for, though I suspect you'd have to be pretty handy with your fists to justify a haircut like that in Ireland.

Best haircut on display must have been the Wallabies 8, who should now be known as 'sideshow' for ever more.

I notice Jonny Hill and Henry Slade both had some terrible 'shaved above the ears' do's. Below par haircuts for below par players.

Martin Johnson would be furious. Richard Hill is the greatest player I have ever seen in an England shirt. What is the first thing one notices about Hilly? His sensible haircut.

Yeah Jonny Hill must have one of the worst haircuts in rugby, supplemented by chin fuzz and no 'tache. Slade's haircut is just odd.

I think that rugby could be improved by allowing players to tackle high as long as they grab the hair of the opponent, no touching the face or throat.

I was amused by your comment. I was picturing the scene near the end of Dusk Till Dawn with the severed leg guitar thing. I even gave it enough thought that I was struggling to picture a severed midget leg having enough length to be a guitar. Then I thought of the guitarist in REM who had that silly little guitar and that was enough to complete the image.

Just got distracted by a spider story and had to post.

Couldn't then unmichaels my own spider related michaels as that would make me a bit of a c*nt.

I have to disagree , PJ  :  apparently this fellow can be milked for sufficient venom to produce anti-venom likely to save numerous lives ...  In fact I see we are now being encouraged to go out and catch more of these chaps to help the cause (use cotton buds , moist soil and jars , etc ... but " careful not to let them within 20 cm of your fingers ")  An inspiring call to arms !

I am now considering mounting an expedition in search of large funnel webs - though the Victorian version is rather less deadly (a source of embarrassment as we hate to be thought inferior to our north eastern neighbours in anything) But perhaps I should wait until they offer a bounty ?

Yes, probably great news if you're looking for big specimens but that expert was saying size doesn't necessarily equal more venom for harvest.

Young sprightly aggressive males spit the most juice in the jar. I was told a while back that the Blue Mountains variety was the most potent. That makes sense. Since they live in a more rugged environment compared to the 'easy life' found in the city areas they have probably developed a more potent venom.

The one in the story was from the Central Coast, maybe near the (Eric Worrell*) Reptile Park. Who knows; these surfie type arachnids might thrive on some mix of insect and marine creature diet with more access to protein? Maybe they'll develop long bleached hairs in a few million years too.

* he was bitten 'countless' times by snakes and spiders. Some think he developed some kind of immunity with all the poison in his system but he died of a heart attack (just after another bite?) at the same park where this latest specimen was sent.

I saw two little ones on the ceiling last night... in different rooms.
Common house spiders. We've had a lot of rain lately so they're obviously looking for a warm dry refuge.

Have to feel a bit sorry for our spider living in the UK if warmth and dryness is what they like.

Make a little cotton wool nest for it and take it up to Tino's. Pretty sure he'll have some space in the shed for it.
