Re: Articles & Interviews

It means they think he has the body shape close to those of the second rows (who are on the second row in the scrum ,numbers 4 and 5...) but it's false since they are really "big" compared to him and he doesn't have a flat nose ( let alone one like an "old experienced already many times hurt" (lol does it even mean something?) second row nose...).
Yes the USA have a rugby team that fought really well the last time the French went touring North America...(last summer...) and they are making progress very quickly (that's what was said at that time by the press at least).
Julie i think it means :" il pourrait avoir sa place" (ne fais pas attention à la négation) or "il n'aurait pas l'air ridicule au milieu de/ en deuxième ligne..." (avec une tournure franchouillarde...).
It's really kind of you tg19 to react the way you do but i really think we (especially me...sorry about that again) got a bit carried away there...I think i'll stop now.

Re: Articles & Interviews

Thank you Delsa for the translation.
Then, I really disagree with this article. IMO he doesn't look like a rugbyman.

I did it too. Sorry for that tennisgirl. We were very off topic.

Mmm... Dan Carter! Oh yeah, go the Crusaders! Yeah, I'm from Auckland but I'm cheering on the Crusaders lol. I only become obsessed with rugby when the All Blacks are playing in the bigger international tournaments (like the World Cup) and at times I'll take a bit of interest in the Super 12
Sorry to head off track again I do consider my self kiwi but I don't tend to get too much thrown at me for it...I used to live in Auckland too


GOOD LUCK

Re: Articles & Interviews

Thanks for so much Delsa for explaining what that means. Of course I am still not 100 percent sure of everything rugby, but I believe I understand what you mean. So when they said "flat" nose they meant that a lot of the players break their noses often which causes it to become flat and since they believe he already has a flat nose he would be fit in perfectly? Stange if I am understanding that correctly. And that's great the US has a rugby team that is doing well. Its not popular here at all. If you ask most people they would probably have no idea what the sport is even about. I prefer it to American football from what I've seen of of it thus far. (A lot of people here if they talk about it relate it to American football)

You really don't have to aplogize for getting off topic. Its not big deal, and now I am even talking about rugby and I know hardly anything about it. lol Sometimes off topic things are good! It keeps a board/thread alive

Richard Gasquet, Andy Roddick, y Rafael Nadal

Re: Articles & Interviews

Well I didn't pay attention to my sentence and "rugbyman" must sound very strange in english...
We also call the tennis players "tennismen" sometimes instead of "joueurs de tennis" because it is shorter I think.
But I don't really know if the french academy is happy with this "franglais"!!!

Re: Articles & Interviews

i wanna post some from interview with marat safin in which safin tells something about his opinions on our richard and nadal, but i have no time recently, now let us see, i think marat likes richard very much ^_^

“ Q. Most people seem to be tipping Nadal, but you've seen Gasquet at Monte‑Carlo. What can you see in his game that's so special?

MARAT SAFIN: He's typical French player. He has beautiful technique, good serve. He can do everything. He can volley. He can play on the baseline.

And Nadal is little bit ‑‑ he's incredible player from the baseline. Doesn't miss one ball. He fights every single point. He doesn't have any huge weapons, but he is there all the time, he is consistent, he is fighting and he gonna be there forever.

Gasquet is more of a ‑‑ let's put it this way, more ‑‑ a nicer player, like nice technique, you know. Just beautiful. It's nice to watch him.

But Nadal, he's pretty good in the head. Mentally, he's really good. ”

Nice guy this Marat

Pour faire du sport de haut niveau, d'autres mentalités sont plus propices".
