Well, the Six Nations is upon us. Those who know and love me well will be amazed that such is my dedication to this blog, I have taken time out to write a review at this time. I was unable to resist using the occasion to mention this exceedingly Hot Hot Hot delicious story about a lovely lady who hooks herself a couple of balls (wink).
Redzinger's Playing Up has more sex packed into its three short chapters than there are bits of popping candy in a bar of Cadbury's Marvelous Creations. Whew, what a zinger! and that's just the heroine of our tale, Sian. She might be carrying a few extra pounds on her waistline, that just offers extra sexy curves for fit prop forward Rob Powell to man-handle. Sexiest of all is her loss of control when her hot body entangles with his hot body. Oh, and she has a sexy snappy wit when she gets going as well as other oral uh ... skills <snerk>.
But hey, the course of true love never runs smooth, huh! Will Sian lose her man because the heat of her momentous moments make her look like she is 'easy'? Will that idiot take team-mate Gavin's advice and end up having to have his head kicked in? Or will Sian decide to go off with one of the other numerous men she suddenly realises are trying to fall down her gorgeous cleavage? Just go and read the story already!
Redzinger is a smoooooth writer, who sets the scene well. You get an excellent sense of a rugby community in a British small town, with nice touches of regional dialect and accent. There is plenty of action, too. Guys wondering how to get women weak and begging for it, get ready to take notes. (If you can spare a hand <snerk>.) Judging by what I remember of the club I used to play for (not much, I hung out with the other women players - wink), Rob did not get his multiple sexy techniques from the Harford coaching squad. Women - just lie back and think of your home nation (and its balls).
And now for Redzinger, me and others who are serious fans of ball play, some rugby spiel.
The Six Nations kicked off in proper fashion with defending Champions Wales at home in the Millenium Stadium - every rugby player's favourite venue. It's great to see the Italians really rising to the challenge and showing how worthy they are of the invitation to join the European nations' rugby tournament they were accorded 14 years ago. In the early days they were a bit unsure of themselves and you would see fans in the Stadio Flaminio wearing beautifully cut Gucci jackets and chic sunglasses. However they rapidly realised this is not the raiment de riguer for the rugby fan and started dressing up as Roman centurions and pizza chefs.
And this year they didn't spoil the party by beating Wales, phew.

OK, what that haircut actually said to me is, this is definitely a new era for England. No way some talented lad with a hilarious haircut would have made it from Exeter to the England squad in the old days. Before Lancaster, English rugby was absolutely an old boys' club. If you were going to be taken up by the RFU, you played for one of the trendy clubs, not somewhere on the outer limbs of the British Isles. Against France, Nowell made mistakes, yes - but it was his debut. He was really in the game, nipping here and there, playing to what is obviously the new Lancaster strategy: get the wings and fulback to play like three fullbacks. He exemplified why, although they lost today, England are going to be a flying force in the World Cup in eighteen months.
The last time England won the World Cup one magazine supplement described them as 'concorde - aging but technologically perfect'. France were like your girlfriend, you never know what mood they might show up in. (Sheesh, you could sure say that about my ex-girlfriend!)
Well, the flighty femme fatale sure turned up on Saturday!

Do not talk to me about the match on Sunday. Remember: I am a Scotland supporter. I therefore had my bottle of single cask whisky installed well before kick-off. (Never should have let Andy Robinson go.)
