Re: LPT - Gouging - Special Rant

Is that just for the well heeled, cosseted and serviced people of Dublin or will it also affect those us with our own water supply, septic tank and no public transport?

Re: Rugby for sale?

You'd kind of see Hansen's point if the Northern hemisphere was winning all the World Cups.
But now, let me see...we've had eight World Cups completed so far and the Northern hemisphere has won exactly... one.

Re: Thanks Joe

Joe's been marvellous for Irish rugby, plus he's not that old.
Maybe we'll see him return one day in some capacity at either provincial

Meanwhile, the king is dead. Long live the King!

Re: Ireland 6Ns 2020

I'd say there are other schools like that dotted around the country, serving areas with a big interest in rugby and potential sources of players if given some support. Someone else was pointing out that if we're ever to have the ball handling skills of the the New Zealanders, we need to be focusing...

Re: Ireland 6Ns 2020

G. Cummiskey also suggests a greater focus on pillaging GAA talent. Players in the local rugby clubs up and down the country might be an easier pool of untapped talent to prioritise. So few make it that it's almost like kids who join Naas RFC or wherever are by definition less talented than the aver...

Re: Ireland 6Ns 2020

About that suggested 2023 team

Leinster 13
Munster 1

Re: Rugby on the Box

It's getting a bit ridiculous now with the constant changes to which broadcaster is showing games and what package or hardware you need to access them. The only option for Eir customers with Sky to access Eir Sport 2 seems to be through the Eir Sport app and either watch on a mobile device or cast ...

England just maybe getting a little carried away with themselves bringing on their kids at the end like they'd won the WC?

Re: Techy advice needed

Nordvpn also had some shady marketing strategies from what I've read. I wouldn't necessarily believe what they say about logging, shady in one way often means shady in others too.
