Yes poor game but if they get final pass linked then it augers well Vs the Spanyards ....them 8 sec penalty runs are sum drama along with " video referral of video referrals...! " .....even the last goal crossing line with 0.4 sec on clock :cheers:

Words rarely heard in the same sentence: Ireland...semi finals. Occasionally they do come together, most often when linked by the phrase 'never having reached the'.
Well done the Irish hockey weemin. Fantastic achievement by a side that no one rated (so I've just read) :thumleft:

Bandwagoner.

Dave put me down for zero, men or weemin, maybe saw a minute or two on the bax, never a match. I'm assuming Hockey on Ice doesn't count, I've seen 4/5 of those as a favour to a friend, reluctantly, even got myself hospitalised to miss one. :D
I expect there are more than a few closet giants fans on here. I don't know if a certain snappy person might object to that non-specific factoid. He tends to snap first and ask questions later.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

No worse than lads. Do they not refer to each other as girls?

Other girls can. Like only black people can call each other the N-word. Or the way GAWAs call each other loyalists.

Now there is a thread all of its own. I loathe this business about words only being acceptable from one group of people, it is entirely counter-intuitive. When for example did you hear a gabshite saying, "houl'on lad I'm a gabshite and it's ok for me to say it but you're being gabshiteist"? Never is the answer, never ever ever in yer long legged life did you hear that from a gabshite.

Thus, either "nigger" is unmentionable to all or it's not. I'd go with the former. I was recently told I should not describe someone as a negro either, the word is black. Really? Is negro an unacceptable noun these days, many suggest it is and yet in the USA the United Negro College Fund is famously the largest funder of educational opportunity for minority students and funds several "Black" colleges. Again is it ok for them to use Negro & not me?

Anyway, I digress, girls can call girls, girls and N-words can call each other WTF they like. I often think I've lived too long or more likely that life is too short for all this shyte.

I have often described weemin of my acquaintance as "a girl well up in years", doubtless that makes me a sexist pig and I should never play rugby for Ulster or Ireland again. The fact is, I have already told the FIRFUC's not to even dream of selecting me, though I remain available for Ulster. :thumleft:
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

I am the latter. Words are not racist. The racism is in the hearts, minds, actions and policies of men (... or women ... or non-binaries)

Another step towards glory for the Irish weemin! They're saying that this is the first time any Irish team has reached the final of a world competition. Semifinal on Saturday, final on Sunday - real tough cookies.
