Re: 6N 2020

I see that BOD is still getting involved in silly ballix with Eddie Jones. Maybe he doesn't realise that they are both gowlbags.....one as bad as the other.....but at least Jones has a reason for the 'banter' he engages in

Re: Whisky Drinkers

Chance of a lifetime has arrived. Irish Distillers is going to make 44 bottles of Midleton's finest available. A snip at €35,000 a bottle.

Strangely I never heard of this guy. Just read about him now and he sure sounded heroic.

Re: Munster 2019/20

Seriously, what in the feck is the point of having the likes of the Southern Kings in the league. Utterly hopeless.

Re: 6N 2020

Shan -- if the referee has not seen the grounding -- and looks at the ASSistant referee -- who says yes -- who is making the decision ? The decision to award or not award the try is being made by the referee. The assistant is only providing data to the referee which the referee can use in his decis...

Re: 6N 2020

Nobody suggested the AR should award a try. I suggested AR's should be capable of seeing things right in front of them. Radical I know....

Re: 6N 2020

I saw the grounding for VDF's try even without requiring a replay. Not an iota of a doubt about it. To be fair to Poite refs can miss these things if they are in the wrong place. Their assistants should be helping more. I've lost count of the amount of times a guy grounds a ball right in front of an...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

I object to Ireland being called a Celtic country or a Celtic Nation. The blow-in Celts only arrived approx 2500 years ago. My family were here a few thousand years before that. Fecking Celt invaders!!

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

The Republic of Ireland easily affords a welfare state with benefits higher than in the UK while running a budget surplus, having full employment and a growing economy. The Republic has, however, a problem with health as it spends as much as the UK but gets poor value for money. The rising populati...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

I reckon a SF govt in the Republic puts a UI backward. They'll f**k it up to the point where the economic voter won't be interested. Or they could be a roaring success and eventually Ireland united and free could take its place among the most successful and best managed countries in the world. Up t...
