Ireland ? in New Zealand

Post by rumncoke »

Nobody here seems interested I wonder Why?

Anyway if it is a 5 -0 thumping I for one won't be surprised .

Looking at the squad you could say it contains 5 out- halfs Sexton," a past his sell-by" an Injury waiting to happen, Carberry likewise, Byrne (h) like Carberry his game resembles a paint by numbers painting completed by a dyslexic blind man, Frawley, a player who is a better 12 than 10 -- his kicking from hand lacks accuracy and consistency and Lowry -- if he faced the ABs at out-half must have a death wish -- the back row would run at him all afternoon --nothing they like better than hitting a small guy late .

As I say 5 out -halfs not one the equal of an out-half hidden under a heap of D4 dung . The smell of their dung I hope --must be really getting to them .

Ireland will be absolutely hammered in every match. Remember the day of infamy last time in 2012? 60 nil in Hamilton. More of the same, I expect.
I see the tour is over for Henderson with a knee injury even before it starts.
Nothing pleasant about mid winter in NZ. Very nice for summer holidays but the rain this time of the year...

I take it that was the game when a flyweight was matched against a light heavy in the centre whose motto was "if I can't run round them I 'll run over them.'

For any Sky TV viewers who, like me, don't pay out for Sky Sports access.

Sky are offering a rolling monthly deal at £14 p.m. for access to Sky Action and Sky Arena (Ch 407 & 408) where all the summer internationals are being shown. :cheers:

In a similar theme to previous post, if you don't have Sky, a one off monthly sub for all the Sky Sports channels of £33 via Now TV would cover all of the July tests for Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland.

Ffs.

Looked in plenty of discomfort.

Couldn’t seem to put weight through his left leg as he went off but he appeared to be clutching his abdominal area when he was on the ground.

Hume seemed to be walking around ok after the match so hopefully nothing too serious .

Both Healy and Loughman looked to take knocks, so Ireland might to reinforce their loosehead options. Healy looked to really improve the scrum so would be a shame if he’s ruled out, I don’t like the thought of Loughman coming on against the All Blacks.

We need to call up an experienced operator who will be able to hold up a scrum… would love to see big Andy Warwick get a chance! Wishful thinking tho - it’ll be Ed Byrne (I would say his namesake’s comedian is more likely to get a call up than the Big License considering he’s from Leinster)

Typical scrappy game with two thrown together sides with the one willing to have a go coming out on top ( see babas V England). Ireland were poor with casey, timoney, Coombes and aki the pick. Thought Mccarthy looked lost at times, shooting out of the line and given away offside penalties but he will be forgiven as the big 2nd row messiah. Otoole did another 80 mins so can't see him involved on sat. Hume hobbled off but it may have been a dig in the crown jewels rather than a muscle injury. Healy likely gone for the tour though.

Do you actually have to be a Maori to play for the Maoris or will a couple of Ta Moko tattoos and a liking for Kia Ora suffice?

Was this a capped game, must be the lowest amount of caps a starting Ireland pack have ever had (apart from their first capped game or two ever needless to say lol). Would have made sense to have a few older hands to start and give direction.
