  3. Neil Anderson says

    Glad you mentioned sheep. I must be a sick Bulldog-puppy or something but I thought they were dick-heads.
    So, ‘ Don’t be a dickhead. Behave responsibly at the footy.’

  4. Grilled lamb – A Cautionary Tale. Acting like a bit of a chop can have dire consequences.

    The audience at The Footy Almanac’s “best footballers to have come out of the wool industry” function.

    A six nations game involving, who else, Wales.

  13. alan stewart says

    it looks like wales.
    Scotland v Wales: Giant sheep and Hymns and …
    It came up when I searched Google images using ‘sheep costumes in rugby crowd’

  14. Dunno, but I like Mathilde’s comment, people as sheep complicate things.
