Re: Japan RWC

Stockdales ability of intercept tries does mask a poor defence but at the same time if all his line rushing which has now caught him out on a number of occasions isn’t to Joes plan then why has he not been discarded before now.. I haven’t of course analysed his defence like the highly paid gurus tha...

If he did it is the only thing I like about him..

Re: Japan RWC

If not mistaken Mrs Stander was keen to stress that her hubby carried more yards made more tackles and did everything much better than everyone else..

Love reading some Irish press suggesting Janny had one bad game and that Hendo was effectively the worse forward and Stockdale the worse back.

Re: Japan RWC

I would be interested to see how an Ireland team picked on form would actually differ from the team that went out against the ABs. This was after all the number one team in the world according to the somewhat bewildering system used to decide this. Stockdale was starved of any ball and yet seemingly...

Re: Japan RWC

Seems all the points and blame has been down to Stockdale... two mentions by BoD and one by PoC... no other Irish player deserves a mention. Feck this shyte come on the Blacks and stick 40 on this lot..

Re: Japan RWC

All Blacks have it all to lose... it’s in their heads that Ireland are a bogey team and if they go back to being chokers then I see Ireland upsetting the odds. Let’s face it Ireland are shyte one dimensional boring and past their sell by date strangely I see them turning up and the ABs struggling. I...

Re: Japan RWC

240 days together over the past year means that they are currently the equivalent of a very good club side. And apparently on something like £24,000 pa if I heard correctly. Pleasure to watch a game played at pace and with commitment.. As for Ireland they have lulled the ABs and most of us into a f...

Presumably there was good reason for later bringing out an already ruled out injured player..

Re: Japan RWC

Stockdale should have been red carded for that leading with the head.. absolute disgrace and for the record BoD is one bigoted Warren Gatland..

Re: Japan RWC

Tonga have been lucky to keep all 15 on and more disappointed with the TMO and red for the relaxed attitude to cheap digs. With regard Farrell at first glance I though he was on bender knee but still very surprised that he was not forced off to take a HIA notwithstanding his brains are in his Brennan.

Re: Japan RWC

I recall a conversation with someone with no connection to UR and who would have known nothing about anything advise me about a month after the news first broke that they would never play for Ulster again... That was long before any hearing and if not mistaken before any charges had been put so it w...

Re: Japan RWC

For me it was more Scotland’s very poor performance than Ireland being world beaters that I took from the first game. All credit to Japan for playing all the rugby anything less than a win would have been a travesty and Ireland simply had no plan B. CI.... I questioned at the Scotland game when had ...
