SO! Sadly this community slightly faltered and at the same time so did my private life! BUT I'd like to get both back on track!

SIX NATIONS (If a tad late)

I think by now we can all see how well England are doing! Anyone think there's a chance of them NOT getting the Grand Slam? How about the other countries? Any that you think are playing better than you expected? Any absolutely bombing?

Player of the tournament so far? Predictions for the weekend?

Hey guys,

Just incase you're wondering, I am still alive and so is this community. I've just moved house and am currently internetless! Hope you're enjoying the autumn internationals, updates from me and [Bad username: lisson17] to follow!

Feel free to vent/cheer over the internationals and how your teams are doing over the next few weeks :D

Dan Parks (aka Parksy, Compass or jiggles according to wiki) - Cardiff Blues and Scotland International. Fly-half extraordinaire

Club rugby
Originally from Australia 32 yr old Dan moved to the UK in 2001 to persue a career in professional rugby and what a career it has been. Originally joining Leeds Tykes (Leeds Carnegie)Parks joined Glasgow Warriors in 2003 and it is there he really started to make his name. In the 7 years he played for the warriors he gained 143 caps and pulled in a grand total of 1531 points. He gained the honours of being the all time points scorer for the warriors and is also the first player in the Magners League to pass the 1,000 points mark. He has also been voted best fly-half in the Magners and included in the 09/10 dream time. Earlier this year Dan signed a 2 year deal with Cardiff Blues making him the first scotsman(ish) to play for the Blues and it saw him knock Ceri Sweeney out of the No. 10 shirt. On his league debut for the Blues against Edinburgh he scored 14 out of their 34 points and was awarded Man of the match.

International play
Dan qualifies for Scotland through his paternal grandfather and earned his first cap against Wales in 2004 and has gone on to do the honours for the highlands another 52 times. He was however dropped through 2009 from the national squad after poor form, finally being called back for the 2010 Six Nations in which he gained 3 man of the match honours and helped Scotland gain their first win on Irish soil in 12 years.

+ Points

Parks is one mean kicker and drop goal/penalty genius as explained in grand fashion here

Seriously. When did little Leigh Halfpenny turn into the Incredible Hulk?

Check this out.
He has muscles on muscles on muscles. He's seriously been working on his upper body strength.
I'm so excited about the autumn internationals.

New Zealand beat Australia to earn their 4th Commonwealth gold medal in Rugby 7s. Well deserved win.

After an incident during the match between Llanelli RFC and Cross Keys Rugby Club, today it was announced that Welsh forward Gavin Quinnell has lost the sight in his left eye. Gwent police are now looking into the match along with the WRU.

Sending my wishes to Gavin and his family. Cannot imagine how he is feeling. More indepth report
