Re: Leinster v Northampton 19/12 1PM

See I totally, totally disagree with that I must say! The signs of what was going to happen against Sarries were there, just many didn't want to see them. Having a poor game is to be expected, but there are elements of today's performance that have been repeating for quite a while, and will come ba...

Re: Leinster v Northampton 19/12 1PM

Crazy. The game will eat itself with this kind of refereeing. Not impressed with the b*%&!x being spouted by Drico and Hartley either. Ryle Nugent was talking sense, never thought I'd say that!

Re: England v Ireland 21 November 15:00

RB didn't play brilliantly for sure but he put a lovely kick through for Farrell and if Farrell had finished the chance, which he should have, the narrative might be a bit different. Agree 100% with RTB re England players lying on the wrong side, it happened virtually every single time. Nothing acci...

Re: Friday's Rave

Connery was fine with hitting women, though in fairness to him apparently not as hard as you'd hit a man. Arsehole. That quote was from 1965, 55 years ago. I'm sure if people went through what you said over your life they would probably find some things that are now unacceptable and which you regre...

Re: Ireland v. Wales, Fri 13 Nov, 19.00

As mentioned above, emigration has had a huge impact on the country and so we've always had a number of foreign-born players from the diaspora on the team. Well immigration has now also had a big impact on our society, with well over half a million foreign-born people living in Ireland. Some are ci...

Re: France vs Ireland, 31 Oct - 8pm

I'd agree with virtually all of RTB's analysis, especially re Stockdale. We particularly missed Ringrose, he makes a massive difference in both defence and attack. The midfield alignment looked all wrong, passing was sluggish and frequently inaccurate. I always thought highly of Farrell but his cont...

Need Kelleher and Baird on ASAP to try and get some momentum up front. JGP too.

We’re not going to inch our way back into this, need a catalyst. I’d even change now.

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

49:30 just before Johnny whooped about the turnover. I had only got the replay at the time but watching it again you can see that Archer lined him up from a few metres away and it was definitely deliberate. He takes Johnny around the neck/jaw with one arm and then leads with his head into the back ...

Was it Archer who ended up head butting Sexton at a maul too? It probably wasn’t as bad as I’ve made it sound but I thought it was fairly deliberate anyway.
When was this? Missed it

Re: Munster in the Aviva, August 22nd, 7.35pm KO

Hated the canned stadium noise, I was listening on the radio and could barely hear Tremenjus over the din. Although I know what you'll say about that... I'd agree with most of the contributions above and particularly that Ringrose was clear MOTM, characteristically hilarious work from Toland there. ...

WHO surely have a similar opinion of Mr Trump to your own. WHO were warned that Trump was thinking about withdrawing their funding. Given Trump's volatility do you think it was wise of them to risk losing that funding and effectively hurt the developing just to approve China's reopening of the "wet...

Re: Corona Virus

Trump has been a very mixed bag on COVID 19 but he's dead right to pull funding on WHO. To describe this lunatic as being a 'mixed bag' on the pandemic is extraordinarily charitable. Furthermore the WHO provides essential assistance to developing countries where public health is as underfunded as i...
