Rugby quotes

Best of luck to the KCB Cubs as they play in their sixth successive
Mwamba Cup final against Quins II. Remember the Cubs are looking for a
fourth Mwamba Cup, having claimed the title in 2004,2005 and 2006.

Some of the best rugby quotes you'll ever read….

"Nobody in Rugby should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like
Norman Einstein." - Jono Gibbs of the Chiefs tells it like it isn't.

"I'm going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes." - Rodney

"You guys line up alphabetically by height" and "You guys pair up in
groups of three, then line up in a circle." - Hurricanes head coach
Colin Cooper.

Chris Masoe of the Hurricanes on whether he had visited the Pyramids
during his visit to Egypt: "I can't really remember the names of the
clubs that we went to."

"He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of
what time it is." - Colin Cooper on Paul Tito

Auckland's Kevin Senio on night rugby vs day games: "It's basically
the same, just darker."

David Nucifora (Auckland) talking about Troy Flavell: "I told him,
'Son, what is it with you. Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said,
'David, I don't know and I don't care.'"

Hurricane David Holwell, when asked about the upcoming season: "I want
to reach for 150 or 200 points this season, whichever comes first."

"Andy Ellis - the 21 year old, who turned 22 a few weeks ago." -
commentator Murray Mexted.

"Colin has done a bit of mental arithmetic with a calculator." - Ma
Nonu sums it up.

"He scored that try after only 22 seconds - totally against the run of
play." - Murray Mexted, again.

"We actually got the winning try three minutes from the end but then
they scored." - Phil Waugh from the Warratahs.

was identical." - Tony Brown

"Sure there have been injuries and deaths in rugby - but none of them
serious." - Doc Mayhew, a real doctor too….you can tell.

"If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same
thing again." - Anton Oliver, gentleman and scholar.

"I would not say he (Rico Gear) is the best left winger in the Super
14, but there are none better." - Murray Mexted, yet again.

"I never comment on referees and I'm not going to break the habit of a
lifetime for that prat." - the diplomatic Ewan McKenzie.

Murray Deaker: "Have you ever thought of writing your autobiography?"
Tana Umaga: "On what?"

"Well, either side could win it, or it could be a draw." - bless Murray Mexted.

"Strangely, in slow motion replay, the ball seemed to hang in the air
for even longer." - Murray Mexted, the most smartest commentator.
