Re: Japan RWC

Excellent performance from England. Had a gameplan and executed it very well. NZ reminded me of Ireland the week before. Just looked clueless against the rush defense. Kicking game was terrible and had no answer to the English lineout. I thought it was odd that Cane was dropped. First time i have se...

Re: Japan RWC

Haha boks making it clear how they will play. Wales have a chance i reckon. Just need to take their chances. Hard to call the england game. England have looked good in the past then turned to custard. Surprised dropping cane but savea has been playing more like a 7 at times anyway. Should be 2 good ...

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

Some good points. Physically and mentally the team looked jaded at best. Players couldnt even execute the most basic of gameplan. Kicking game was appalling. Lost all the collisions. Worst thing for me is turnover ball. Often end up kicking it away. Turnover ball is so precious and hard to come by a...

Re: Japan RWC

Interesting that Schmidt made no reference to any failings in his selection or coaching. Entirely the fault of players making mistakes was more or less what he said. He picked and coached those players and decided the tactics. The box kicking to the NZ backline, for example, was ridiculous. Murray ...

Re: Japan RWC

Poor old Dublin4, weeping into his Pimms. :roll: It's the one positive in all of this knowing that plenty of kn0bheads have gone the whole way to Japan to witness this ballix. Some absolute to$$ers go to these things to be sure. Spend most if the match looking for themselves on the big screens. as ...

Re: Japan RWC

Stockdale made a few howlers to be fair but they entire team, tactics and execution was terrible. ABs were sensational and it was one of those days were things went their way but nevertheless Ireland had nothing. Absolutely nothing. As poor a performance as I have seen from Ireland. England V NZ wil...

Re: Japan RWC

i noticed that too cockatice. what about all the knock ons across the park... what is interesting is that Hansen has picked purely on form. Bridge and Reece were nowhere this time last year and Barrett was playing 10. He makes the hard decisions. I have a lot of time for Joe but he has been too cons...

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. ...

Re: Japan RWC

mmmm, interesting game Ireland: fairly disjointed of late. No real form and generally only win the 'big' games at home. Solid enough looking XV with not a lot off the bench. If the pack really front up and can dominate either the lineout or scrumtime and dominate the collisions then that's a big par...

Online rugby highlights?

Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction for a website that does decent rugby highlights? The official world cup one isn't great. Looking something equivalent to footballhighlights.com

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. Haha good luck with finding a...

Re: Ulster v Ospreys Fri Sep 27 7:35pm Premier Sports 1 / Eir Sport 1

First time I have watched an Ulster game in a while. I thought Ulster played very well. Nice intensity and punched onto the ball well, Some good accuracy and some off-loads. Looked like a well coached side from what I saw.
