If you miss one, you are a Cork footballer.
FIXED!!!

Have to say that this is a great thread..some funny stuff here lads.

'the hush' (1): 10,000 supporters* go absolutely silent so as not to disrupt the concentration of a player tasked with the almost impossible feat of kicking a ball over a bar from 20 yards. this sheeplike display of social compliance apparently demonstrates 'respect', and is all the more surprising considering how much these lads love the sound of their own voice.

'the hush' (2): when a rogby football fan asks people in a pub to 'show some respect' while a kick is taken in the match on tv, as if the kicker could hear the conversation in the pub through the television.

*down from 30,000 during the celtic tiger years

I always thought it was a way for the fat lads to signal the bench to let them know they have a stitch.

i generally wouldn't be in the pub for munstershire games, but i was for a celtic league game there last year.

Experienced the full on hush for the first time, started with a ssshhhh, then some lads starting roaring shutup at the non quiet people. Seriously bizzare.

'Hi-jinks': harmless fun amongst rogby chaps which may include dwarf-throwing, jumping off ferries, soggy biscuit, driving golf carts on the motorway and sexual harassment.

Prop: A rogger of such exceptional fatness and slowness that they can't be replaced by a standardly fat and slow rogger and if two of them get injured, you play the rest of the game with a different set of rules, rendering the whole thing even more pointless (yes - that is possible!)

'developing nations': countries that draw their playing pool from a sum total of about 50 players.

the rest of the country's population has zero interest in the sport, but these 50 lads are game because the world governing body is throwing millions at their national governing body to compete so the 10 countries that actually play the game can call their tournament a 'world' cup without sounding completely ridiculous.
