Scratching issue

In answer to Shariff Shah, I don't think LTA would be too concerned if he wants to scratch his rear with his mobile phone, as long as he is not driving at the same time!

Brave Eagles

I salute the brave USA Eagles for the massive performance to dismantle the Los Pumas 28-0 and win the Las Vegas 7s for the first time.

Led by courageous captain Ben Pinkelman, bulldozer Barrett, nippy Niua, gasman Baker, crafty Iosefo, explosive Unufe and classic Leuta, the Eagles were outstanding.

They were a class above Argentina led by Barbier, Roura, Moroni, Mare, Filizzola and the experienced Revol and Del Mestre.

With rugby brains in Mike Friday and backed by their passionate fans, USA displayed a special brand of rugby.

The Eagles had speed to burn. They defended pretty well and were clinical and fantastic at breakdown.

Their brand of rugby was a delight to the eye.

The Eagles played to their game plan and beat giants such as Samoa, Australia, England and Fiji on their way to the gold medal win. Bravo USA Eagles!

Fiji beats All Blacks 7s

Once again Fiji edged the All Blacks in the Las Vegas quarter-final.

I was excitedly watching the final moments when Fiji scored the winning try.

The amount of kaila my All Blacks neighbours heard from my end really shocked them as they sneaked over the fence to see what was the cheer about.

Well, I replied that Fiji edged the All Blacks!

Their reply was "wait for our cheers and kaila!

My reply "keep waiting, that kaila and cheers will take a while from your end!"

Unionists and polls

I believe a trade unionist has to resign before he or she is eligible to contest national elections. What makes them special?
