Quoting Jafa39 (Thread starter): I read with disgust and horror the story of the Pommie Rugby supporter getting the crap kicked out of him (twice) for cheering a try by the brits.
Ah, look, it's a terrible thing, but every nation has their fair share of idiots. You can't blame all of Australia for a few nutcases. I'm absolutely certain that 20 million other Aussies are appalled by it.
She's as nervous as a very small nun at a penguin shoot.

Yes, we Aussies are usually smart enough (when we're sober that is) not to cheer in front of a Kiwi fan when their side is losing! Mind you, he proably got the crap beaten out of him for being a pom................ poor bugger. This particular incident got a bit of press here in Melbourne, the guy spent the night in hospital before being released. Sad, very sad.
