Re: Bath v Ulster

That was a super win for Ulster. Any win away to a top English or French team is always going to be a big deal for a Pro 14 side. John Cooney seems to alternate between hero and villain but the balance sheet came out the right side for him. It means nothing if you don't beat Clermont next. To comple...

Re: English Premiership 2019/20

I am surprised that the retirement of the greatest scumbag in rugby last week has merited so little comment in the media or sites like this one.

Farewell Dylan Hartley, you will not be missed, you scumbag of epic proportions! >seeya

Re: English Premiership 2019/20

Sarries didn't show up the for the launch of the H Cup today which happened before in 2010 and they were fined. This time they should be kicked out of the tournament. Exeter must feel rightly peed off finishing up in second three years in a row. Sarries are an artificial club who do nothing for the ...

Re: Japan RWC

Ultimately, Eddie Jones has been a failure for England. Granted, he won a Grand Slam in 2016 but really since then it's been one off successes such as against Ireland in February and NZ last week. But there has been no consistency. Despite having the best club side in Europe to form the base of his ...

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

Eddie Jones and England sniffed out how to beat Ireland and Joe in the first 6N game last February. Basically, play massively aggressive rugby to take away possession from Ireland. Wales, using their offensive defence, did the same in Cardiff. Saracens v Leinster in the H Cup final was a surrogate v...

Will Boris be invited back to the DUP conference?

I guess he won't be building a bridge over the North Channel either.

Re: Japan RWC

Greetings from Tokyo.
The weather is cooler and showery. May suit Ireland a bit.We have nothing to lose and I expect a mighty effort from a full strength team. Unlike four years ago.

Re: Japan RWC

Neil Francis is calling for the Ireland team to pack their bags and come home now. :roll: Apart from his trademark silliness, if you could take it seriously,can you imagine the chaos of abandoning games and contractual commitments? Even more weird, if Scotland beat Japan next week and we would have ...

Re: Japan RWC

Eddie O'Sullivan being very critical of the Ireland team on RTE and how they didn't win with panache and good tries etc.
Couldn't resist thinking of Eddie's Ireland just about beating Georgia 14 10 in 2007.

Re: Japan RWC

In the 70th minute, Murray is penalised for off side and Japan get 3 points. Murray is nowhere near off side and not interfering with play when the Japanese player is tackled. I have to say I didn't spot this or the earlier one at the time maybe due to the pace of the action. Ireland still didn't de...

Re: Japan RWC

BM,
if you look at the penalty in the 37th minute, JVDF was inexplicably penalised by Gardner for not rolling away when he was being held on the ground by the Japanese. That cost us 3.

Re: Japan RWC

World Rugby has confirmed that three of the four offside penalties given against Ireland to Japan were incorrect.
it wasn't all Gardiner's fault as Garces made two of them as a touch judge.

Re: Japan RWC

for 80 minutes?
We led until the 58th minute.

Of course we were not good but they were really excellent in humid conditions with a home crowd behind them.
Last week you were in ecstasy over the win against Scotland. Today you are in despair.
The truth is in the middle.

Re: Japan RWC

I don't agree that Ireland were terrible/awful. Yes they did make stupid errors in the second half like the Stander/Farrell accidental offside that led to the Japanese try. Japan were brilliant and played out of their skins. We must give them some credit. The fact is though that Japan have been here...
