When a referee, after a player is looking to get square after a king hit, says 'make it quick', you know The Biff is back.

And I love it.

Ian, you are taking about NRL?
Which team is doing good this year??
How bout my home boys West Tigers??? I used to live on the next street from their home ground Leichhardt Oval.

I was clueless about rugby when i first landed in Sydney, but then some of my Aussie mates took the time to teach me ABCD of rugby league and i took a liking to it.
Was never a big follower but used to keep in touch with the scores....

First game i watched in the stadium was between Bulldogs Vs Roosters in 2003, which was a thriller.

I remember I used to follow rugby when I was younger and lived near South Africa.

Been a while since I watched, though my high schools rugby team was top notch.

Which school was this, Malvern? What do you do in Toronto now? Are you at U of T by any chance? Try out for the intramurals... I played as a Winger for Vic-Meds from 2003-2006. Its loads of fun. But then we play Rugby Union rules and usually with contested scrums. The U of T scarborough campus was hardest to beat. THey had this 350lb monster as lock who'd just bulldoze our forwards. But it was great fun whooping the other colleges. Proud to say I broke my arm playing Engineering team back in 2004. Its a real rush to play it in the freezing October rain!

* I just used my mod powers and found out you're in engineering (or maybe just comp sci) at U of T. You should try out for the Skule teams, they always have a 'B' team that play the intramurals so even if you're new to the game you can practice with them and play there. Heck you're even allowed to play for the other colleges! I'd really encourage you to give it a go this fall. ...and yeah, broke my arm to the Skule 'A' team.
