Any chance you have a link for that?

Boris changed his tune so quickly on Europe it smacked of political opportunism

Re: Rumour Mill

Carr's not that good though. His greatest asset was his pace, but as he hits 30 will that be around for much longer? I think promoting an academy player would be better

Re: Luke Fitzgerald retires

thanks for the memories luuuuke roysh one of the finest and most talented players leinster and ireland have produced, his dedication to come back time and time again after the horror list of injuries is testimony to his character. such a shame his body broke down as often as it did, he oozed class w...

Re: Friday's rant

very anecdotal, and given who i follow on twitter and fb no doubt very biased, but there was a lot of buyers remorse today.

Re: 2016 Summer Tour to South Africa.

we were not at the races today at all. Jackson was shite and the yellow for le roux is mind boggling. i personally disagreed with stander being sent off but if that's the law then that's the law. so where was the f%~king law today? proving itself an ass as per f%~king usual. i am fed up with refs si...

Re: Friday's rant

Pretty sure the Nazis didn't actually win the popular vote - they hijacked the state, did the Anschluss, suppressed the opposition (communists were their only real opposition), banned lots of people from voting, and then won the "vote". Because: emergency, terrorism. The last 100+ years have been d...

Re: Friday's rant

Question, does anyone else think that if they make noises at rejoining in the future that the rest of Europe could have a referendum to see if we want them? they'll only be allowed back in with a unanimous vote - but i dont know how that vote would be worked, i presume individual countries run a re...

You won't be heading across the pond to vote Trump then? haha, no. the idea that the failure of a businessman like him will lead the USA is worse than Farrage and his nitwits winning. This was a triumph for Little Englanders. A real case of "fog in the Channel, Continent cut off". As for the lick s...

Re: Friday's rant

The remain campaign was shambolic, Corbyn and Labour were marked absent on this one and if anyone should ship the blame* it's them. I'm in neither Ireland nor the UK, and despite being surrounded by a lot of remain Brits, most of the campaigning I saw online was for leave. But good luck to them, the...

Re: Scrap the Lions?

I for one would be deeply disappointed if the Lions were ever scrapped. +1 Well I for one would be happy to see the Lions scrapped. Players are playing too much rugby already and the itinerary for the NZ tour is absolutely shocking - playing every super rugby team, maoris and NZ barbarians and then...
