Chasing Eggs and Dreams

Blood and sweat and jeans and brogues. There are things that, when you notice them, tell you exactly what time of year it is.

I’m not talking about drunk office Santas – because we all know what that means. Or high streets thronged with men wearing those ¾ length shorts-but-not-trousers-but-not-shorts.

That just means the temp broke through the 13° barrier, so it’s basically BBQ weather.

Something primal

No, I’m talking about something else. Something more, well, primal.

It’s time for groups of men to congregate, flocking as one congealed denim and pointy-shoed mass towards a bar, somewhere.

“If we’re being really honest, most of us haven’t got a clue what’s going on.”

To gawp and gape at a screen, vomiting out large opinions about something many claim to know well, but few actually understand.

That’s right: it’s 6 Nations time! So here’s a few memorable moments to get you right in the mood as the tournament picks up speed.

Dragons slaying Scotsmen, from 1977.

La Vita E Bella – not, perhaps, if you’re Welsh, from 2022.

C’est magnifique, non? France v England, 1991. The good stuff, right?

There’s nothing quite like it. Even if, if we’re being really honest, most of us haven’t got a clue what’s going on.
