Re: Japan RWC

Wasn’t sure the somewhat one dimensional Boks game plan could outdo the English but it did and it did so easily. The best team won. One for the purest but brut force won the day. England lacked something maybe the ABs was their final. Well done the BOKs

Re: Japan RWC

The Haka in my opinion has no place at RWC games ... tours etc are fine and they can do what they want at home.

Re: Japan RWC

Don’t believe the Boks have anything else in their locker and that it is England’s to loose. I always thought England would have to game to beat the ABs and it proved right. Jones had one job to do with England and he is one game from executing that yet coming second ext week will wreck that entire ...

Re: In Defence of Schmidt, Ireland's RWC and where to now?

Unless mistaken I hear little or nothing of the Ozzie head honcho who if not mistaken set the minimum goals for Ireland this year as winning a 6N and getting to the RWC SF. In other words Ireland failed to reach their stated goals and yet he gets a 300 yeAr contract extension..

Re: Japan RWC

Stockdales ability of intercept tries does mask a poor defence but at the same time if all his line rushing which has now caught him out on a number of occasions isn’t to Joes plan then why has he not been discarded before now.. I haven’t of course analysed his defence like the highly paid gurus tha...

Re: Japan RWC

If not mistaken Mrs Stander was keen to stress that her hubby carried more yards made more tackles and did everything much better than everyone else..

Love reading some Irish press suggesting Janny had one bad game and that Hendo was effectively the worse forward and Stockdale the worse back.

Re: Japan RWC

I would be interested to see how an Ireland team picked on form would actually differ from the team that went out against the ABs. This was after all the number one team in the world according to the somewhat bewildering system used to decide this. Stockdale was starved of any ball and yet seemingly...

Re: Japan RWC

Seems all the points and blame has been down to Stockdale... two mentions by BoD and one by PoC... no other Irish player deserves a mention. Feck this shyte come on the Blacks and stick 40 on this lot..

Re: Japan RWC

All Blacks have it all to lose... it’s in their heads that Ireland are a bogey team and if they go back to being chokers then I see Ireland upsetting the odds. Let’s face it Ireland are shyte one dimensional boring and past their sell by date strangely I see them turning up and the ABs struggling. I...

Re: Japan RWC

240 days together over the past year means that they are currently the equivalent of a very good club side. And apparently on something like £24,000 pa if I heard correctly. Pleasure to watch a game played at pace and with commitment.. As for Ireland they have lulled the ABs and most of us into a f...

Stockdale should have been red carded for that leading with the head.. absolute disgrace and for the record BoD is one bigoted Warren Gatland..

Re: Japan RWC

What are the chances of a typhoon hitting the Ireland match this weekend .. now wouldn’t that be funny to be knocked out on a draw v Samoa.
