2/1 The England Grand Slam now with PP.
They have Two 'Sticky' Away matches coming up against Scotland and France, (2/5 fer each.)

Ireland have a better run-in playing Wales at home (1/4) and then Scotland also in Lansdowne (1/6).

A better bet might be Ireland fer the Slam at 11/4 with LawBreakers or Bar-One racing, taking it that
they can easily over-come those Two minor obstacles, you will be left with a handy docket of 11/4 about
Ireland on match day, and Match day being Paddies day, it is never recommended to bet against the Irish
on Paddies day !

The whole 'Home' advantage thing is based on players having a higher testosterone rate while playing at 'Home'.
Any male Irish International team playing anywhere on Paddies day will have that same high testosterone rate.

England are only Even money (2/5 x 2) to be arriving in Twickenham on Paddies day staring at the Slam.
We are 4/9 (1/6 and 1/4) to be there staring at the same prize !

That would make sense, I have been following this case closely and a lot of things are just not adding up fer me.
Two questions that I would like to see asked and answered by both the accused and the defendant are;
How did she get to the bedroom ?
Who removed her clothing ?

The 'Magic Sign' was a name bestowed upon Ladboke by John McCririck many years back, because when Ladbrokes stuck their neck out and went the very best price about anything, they were most usually always 'On the Ball' !

Ladbroke offer Ireland @ 2/5 tomorrow against Wales which is an even better offer than the exchanges.

Just doing my daily look around Powers have an interesting wager . GAA  Dublin -3 @10/11 V Mayo .Mayo are down about half a dozen of their first choices as they are probably Dublins main opposition I think the Dubs will try to put manners on then and a good hammering to destroy their confidence for the championship 10/11 looks fair value for the event and double it up with England for the slam. 1/4 Ireland to beat Wales looks well under priced you cannot beat passion and tradition with posh schoolboys I think we will struggle against Wales and Johnny Sexton will struggle most

It would be settled first with refrence to the price you took as there might be a difference if they were similar the bet would be setteled on the mens match unless you specified women's game .in almost all cases .

I'm long out of the gambling game, but Yes bookies do have set and printed rules on ambiguous bets and as John M stated the price taken often clarifies which team you are betting on. However there is further rules which state that if no price is taken or event stated, certain sports take precedence over others, as in Horse racing would always take precedence over everything else, as in if a horse called 'Schumacher' was running in the 3.15 at Kempton and if a driver called 'Schumacher' was in the Grand Prix on the same day and a punter had a bet on 'Schumacher' stating no price, time or event, then horse racing would be given preference.

Ambiguous bets in general are a Minefield, no bookie could ever cover the rules on the amount of ambiguous bets being offered, the simple rule fer me when I was in that business was to pay de Kount on his bet and then bar him.
Title: Re: Rugby

I'm getting de Gra fer Scotland @ 14/1 fer the Six Nations title
or at least fer the Dead-heat @ 13/2. (If it's based on points alone ?).

https://www.oddschecker.com/rugby-union/six-nations/winner (https://www.oddschecker.com/rugby-union/six-nations/winner)

Irish teams traditionally make hard work of everything and IF Scotland
beat us and then get the bonus point in their last game against de I'ties,
that will see them sitting nicely on 17 points.

If England win their last Two matches without the bonus point,
then it's a draw at 17 points each.
If England lose or draw in France and then beat Ireland, Scotland win.

Thank you Mr. MyTaxi fer that really lovely job yesterday afternoon.

I collected Two lads off the Grand Parade in Cork on a MyTaxi job just after the Irish rugby match had kicked-off,
we all listened to the first half of the match on the car radio along their 35km journey out to Ballymaloe house,
we arrived in Ballymaloe house at half-time in the game, the lads paid me 54Euro fer listening to the match.
I thanked them sincerely and listened to the second half of the game on the way home.

 We are similar Kids got a start now its my time .Left school went to work went back to school still to thick to listen .A lot of times no work so spent quality time with the kids when they were growing up .I feel distressed when I talk with young people who work their bollox off get up early morning to drop the kids off at the minders struggle to pay for childcare house car just to try to give their kids a head start so they can have kids and pay the minder and struggle .They dangled the carrott and we fell for it .Everybody thinks they can write a book .I was going to have a go .I was doing research and came up with My generation of working class people were probably the first generation who saw education third level as a way to advance yourself my old man would of encouraged me to get a good full time pensionable job something like the Corpo or the Civil Service now the kid in the ripped skinny genes is studying Gyroscopic Engineering or the History of Art in Trinity before he gets a job as a deputy manager in Lidil  Education is now a commodity sold to us by colleges most of it wont get you a job wont get you a decent wage .I probably learned more on here and Roys than I ever learned in School but the big lesson that todays kids need to learn is Life is Funny enjoy it .I see so many worrying about property ladders and superficial crap .What have we done to our kids .We have denied them the life we had by promoting a different kind of life we know nothing about .

There's worse ways to earn a crust. There's not many unskilled jobs that let you come and go as you please with no responsibility, no physical effort, etc. However, I was being philosophical. Without referencing any particular trade/profession/vocation what makes any job "decent"... I would put enjoying what you do pretty high up the list, what that is will vary from person to person.

I think a lot of parents rate a job that they imagine will impress their neighbours/peers above their kids doing something they enjoy. Of course, in reality, your neighbours/peers don't give a flying fuck. It's a bit like your holiday snaps. You and your spouse are the only ones who find your kids doing this, that or the other to be cute. Those you subject to the slideshow would much rather see them on Facebook later when they'll really enjoy them... honest!
