Ireland 7s

Post by Gerald the Mole » Sun Apr 08, 2018 9:52 am

Men have FAILED AGAIN to get into the World Series , beaten by Japan, Japan of all teams, that powerhouse of rugby. The money and resources used in to this experiment is ridiculous, time for Anthony Eddy to get the boot, he fecked up Australia 7s programme, he fecked up Worcester, I know he is Nuckifuckwits mate, but time to cal it a day . women are not much better and the insistence of mad Eddy to waste money on players who pop back to GAA when it suits and have a pile of unfit uninspiring women representing their country is not acceptable, it’s not for the men so why is it for the women, maybe threats of the feminist in the ranks hold the power.

Sevens programme is a waste of money and resources .

What is this Sevens of which you speak and why is it being mentioned on a rugby forum?

Ireland have made the semi-finals of the London Sevens. Beat USA 22-12 in the quarter-final. First time an invited side have made the semi-finals of any World Series Sevens event. They play Fiji later this afternoon.

BR's question remains apposite. Typical of you Paddybastards to jump on anything that smells remotely of success. 3rd is Irish for success.

Been a while since I watched 7's but reckoned Fiji was a step too far for Ireland before it even kicked off, beating Engerland into 3rd though is pretty damned good especially as I doubt they would play a rookie team on their own patch.

Yes indeed. Beating England into 4th is indeed success. Especially at "Headquarters" Beating England into even 127th at any sport or endeavour would be success. The significant words are "beating England". :D

Our own Stan McDowell has neen heavily involved in the project for a number of years now.
Great to see his hard work paying off.
Phenomenal achievement putting us on the 7s map from nowhere and hopefully we should regulary look to compete on the circuit now.

In 7s you need that flyer. In Conroy the irish side have it now. Even Carlin Isles couldn't catch him. He's about as irish as Andy Townsend.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

Qualified today in Hong Kong for world series. Some nice trips around the world for those selected.
