    Who is watching which one and how confident are we that the boys will win the rugby again and Hamilton rewrites the history books? :biggrin

    I hear what ur saying about the whole spy thing...the most ridiculous thing about it was the fine McLaren got slapped with...I mean £50m? yikes!! thats bad...£250K yes thats understandable...but not £50m!! Anyway I hope Lewis does well and wins...he has worked his socks off this year...even tho I havent been watchin I have been keeping an eye on his progress and the guy has certainly impressed me...

    you know if he wins, not only will be the youngest ever driver to win F1, he will also be the first black driver to win F1 or any racing competition for that matter...unless someone else can correct me on that...

    50m too much? are you mad
    do you have any idea how much money is in F1? it's gotta be one of the most cash rich sports around
    50m was a cheap cop out if you ask me

    Fingers crossed for both though, could be quite a record breaking day for us brits :)

    I'll be glued to the F1 but not the Rugger. I hope England win the world cup, but I find Rugby union an awful game to watch.

    Yep... the Titans are playing against the Texans, and the Predators are playing against the Sharks. 8)

    ...not to mention the Indians and Red Sox, if you're into that sort of thing...

    I'll be watching both!

    Rugby will hopefully be a great match, 2 top teams, and anything can happen in these big games, England always calm under pressure as shown in our last 2 matches, lets hope for more of the same!! :)

    Tomorrow for the F1, can't wait, been following since I went to Silverstone earlier in the year. I think if you went to a race it would change your mind on F1, it certainly did for me! Looks like a wet race in Brazil, so will be entertaining for sure, but also open to alot of mistakes and position changes. Fingers crossed for Lewis :)

    Watching the Rugby!!

    I think the F1 winner will be Lewis...

    The rugby im warming up for already its going to be good... we were written off before the tournament, 100/1 i believe, now we are 9/4.... South Africa got the better odds but i can feel the magic in johnny wilkos feet 8)

    Shame England football are a shambles, i think i could play better!

    Bout time we started making a mark in world sports!

    I used to think that F1 was boring - but i've really gotten into it over the last 3 seasons!!! The skills those guys have is amazing (still think that they get paid WAAAAAAYYY to much tho'!!). I really hope Lewis smacks Alonso up - first black rookie to win an F1 championship?? Absolutely amazing!!!

    As for Rugby - good for England to get to the final but, not hoping to sound too unpatriotic, you know that they didn't deserve to be there. If they win it'll be overplayed and they'll probably make it a national holiday. All this to compensate for the fact that we suck at football of late. The greatest squad we've ever had and they get spanked 2-1 by Russia (and might not even qualify for Euro 2008)...


    Anyway - GO LEWIS!!!

    Well done to South Africa, but i thought it was very good game...I still think we scored that try...the long wait was too much to bear...still at least England reached the final which is more than I can say for the football players!!

    The rugby team did us proud, battled hard and never gave up, cant ask for more!

    Now its down to Hamilton to deliver some success to England after the last 3-4 days we REALLY need some :)
