On the Twelfth Day of Christmas...

...the Gods of Rugby gave to me:

Twelve scrums a-wheeling,
Eleven balls a-stealing,
Ten fly-halves hoofing,
Nine scrum-halves tooting,
Eight forwards rucking,
Seven backs a-prancing,
Six Nations slamming,
Four festive refs,
Three naff autumn tests,
Two rugby balls,
And a tinsel-wrapped Rob Kearney!

Phew!  That's the Rugby Twelve Days of Christmas finally done and dusted, and that's also it for me until after Christmas.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and that you get the chance to enjoy plenty of rugby over the festive season.  If nothing else, popping to a rugby game is a good way to escape your relatives for a couple of hours!

The forwards in the scrum go round and round, round and round, round and round... all game long.

Ho ho ho!


  1. Happy Christmas from snowy Minneapolis-we might get close to 20 inches of the white stuff by the time it's done on Saturday Morning, we have already gotten a foot.

    Love your blog Bamberio. It's nice to have a little shot of Yorkshire every day as I go through the rugby-centric blogosphere!

  2. Happy Christmas to you too Nursedude, and thanks for your very kind comments! I hope the snow hasn't been too bad over there for you.

    PS: I've added your blog to my rugby blog list

  3. Belated seasons greetings to you and yours from sometimes sunny Christchurch, NZ.
