For good reason. Best tight head in the world.

His agent is going to have the easiest job the next time his contract is up for renewal. Name your price Tadhg.

As of now Rob Kearney is the most decorated player in Irish rugby history(Rory benched in 09). Discuss.

Well we got what we deserved, I didn't want Jones for the job and even less so just before a World Cup, the table doesn't lie, we were pish, well done to Rory and his leadership, something Hartley can only ever dream of doing.

It's snowing heavily here in Dublin and the IRFU has had to call off the homecoming event set for the Aviva.
Over 30,000 tickets were downloaded overnight.
Such a shame as it would have been a lovely occasion.
There won't be another chance to have it - until maybe next year? :cheers:

God forbid they have some sort of celebration outside Dublin, like, Belfast.

Another fun fact: there are gowls saying this is Ireland's greatest achievement in history winning in Paris & England.

STOP PRESS: In 1972 Ireland won in Paris, won at Twickenham but then the cowards from Scotland and Wales, the same miserlybastards who stopped you Paddybastards having a home RWC in 2023, chickened out and refused to go to LR for a beating, thus robbing Ireland of a GS.

Brother Grenouille turned up in April to shame the West English & North English and Ireland bate them hollow a second time. Then, of course, the Lionels turned up in 73 and Wales & Scotland remain the sole cowardly nations in Rugby, "oh dear some bad man with a woolly hat might shoot me" :terror: :terror: :terror: .
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

Let’s be honest Ireland have been fortunate that neither Murray or Sexton were injured this year because I doubt if a Grand Slam would have been possible without them . They have the ability to ensure the game is played in the opposition half with the forwards going forward which makes winning possible .

Lol. Elliot Daly? Itoje got man shamed yesterday. Hendo threw him around like a ragdoll.

Stander was fantastic. Nothing too subtle. He just made the hard yards over and over. Dan Leavy has been superb since VDF suffered the injury.

Ireland are brill.

Shan, a man of your beard should know better than to quote the single biggest clown associated with any sport in any nation including North Korea.

You are quite correct Snipe.
