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 opposed to posting about them on small screens lol

BOD and POC 2 of the worst pundits.
Utterly delusional and never saw this coming.
A side that did not evolve it's squad or tactics for 2 years.
Tossing players aside didn't help.
The inevitable failure played out.
The only thing I didn't factor in was that Scotland are even worse.
Ireland were an absolute shambles and got entirely what they deserved.
Slap it up em!

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 has done that ubiquitously for two years. Sexton looked like a much older man. Schmidt had developed no alternatives to this worn out, predictable pairing. Kearney-. it has been time to go for years now.

Carbery kicking it to them near the end summed it all up.

I couldn't believe the kicking game. Keeping it in field with no pressure on the catcher is suicide Vs NZ. That is basically class 101. The Irish half-packs were just appalling. The Sexton wrap era has finally come to an end...

Evening all.
IRFU are reaping what they sowed. Ireland are completely without a functioning flyhalf and got bate out the gate by a quality side.
Hopefully Hendy and Jacob aren't involved in Farrell's plans going forward, after all there are clearly better options in Turnipstan and Mexico.
That's me away again Happy Christmas.

Johnny the loop kept trying it. Hard to credit this against the All Blacks. POC said he didn't expect many changes for the 6 Nations as there were very few players to choose from. The future does not look any rosier and I share the doubts over Farrell.

Well said.

Feel for Rory and wish he would have just retired from internationals and stuck with UR for the remainder of the season.

Come 6N I can see Stockdale out of the 23 on a few occasions as if he doesn’t start he’s not a 23. Just hope he gets released back home if that’s the case. Can’t see Addison getting much game time either. Hendo will start or bench but I hope the FIRFU has minimal requirement from UR going forward. F@ck them. To think we could still have a Pienaar, Jackson and Olding axis if it weren’t for them cants.

Having watched the highlights it is clear that Ireland were totally robbed by Nigel Owens. :lol:

What is clear is that Schmidt blamed Sexton and Stockdale for the loss. Not how a retiring coach should comment on his team.

One thing which would brighten up a dreary weekend is a French win against the Welshers and their miserable coaching team.

Hopefully Japan can make a game of it against RSA but I expect them to be beaten comfortably enough.

Poor old Joe. Another Irish coach who stuck with guys thru thick and thin.

Joe did many great things during his time here but the last year has been a washout. He should be taking responsibility for his failings and leave us to call out the player's faults.

Happy with all that except for "Poor old Joe". I have no sympathy for him. Silence on PJ notable.
