No, sadly not my age (I wish).

36 is, it turns out, the nickname given by Leicester Tigers' skipper Geordan Murphy to new recruit Billy Twelvetrees.

Why 36?

Because, if you say it in Murphy's Irish accent, "twelve t'rees" = 36.

Genius! Up there with John "Nobody" Eales (as in "Nobody's Perfect")

No wonder I couldn't guess why...
shouldn't it be "tirtysix"? (or "tertysix" or "turtysix" or...some combination of
tirty, terty, turty or torty
six, sex or sax

Flanker, did you get a chance to see any of the H-cup matches? Northampton-Munster ended up being a helluva game.(And a great result for the Saints)
