You don't get to a Euro semi final three years in a row with a powderpuff pack

Can't say I did Deco but then there could never be enough negative news about Munster for you.

Has there ever been a motorcyclist detected as speeding

Re: The Province Formerly Known As Munster 2018-19

Very good win for TPFKAM, just goes to show that their young, native players can do the job. The pity is that they don't get the game time. It will be interesting to see if they're trusted more next season. As far as this season goes, "Munster" should win silverware, I certainly would be very worri...

Re: Leinster v Glasgow Sat 15.00 Eir

I won't care too much if we win next week. I'd rather we played you in Newcastle anyway. How good must saracens be though when you consider the ease with which they have disposed of Glasgow three times this season. What's up with Leinster? Whatever it is, seemed to infect Ireland this 6 Nations as w...

Tyler Bleyendal is a class player, shame his career has been so badly disrupted with injury.

They're kicking for the line because they have no one who can kick a goal. But they're missing those too.

Re: Wales v Ireland 2019 6N (The Match)

I don't think it was even the TMO who intervened, it was the tv director. He showed the replays on tv, the crowd saw it on the big screen, the ref or one of his assistants saw it and the rest is history. This is the same reason French tv directors don't show the dodgy stuff French players do, instea...

Re: Wales v Ireland 2019 6N (The Match)

The world cup seems to really fcuk with Ireland. We have cr@p tournaments and the season after one we're usually poor and now it looks like we're poor the season before as well. I kind of wish it didn't exist

Re: Wales v Ireland 2019 6N (The Match)

Hard to know what happened yesterday. I'd be inclined to put it down to the virus that was supposedly going around in the camp last week. No fear of over confidence at the world cup anyway. Hopefully the provinces can put this behind them in two weeks

Re: The Province Formerly Known As Munster 2018-19

Hugonaut Thanks. I still don't think SA would have won in 2007, nor NZ in 2011 with Ian Keatley at outhalf, just a suspicion I have. However, please also note the use of the word "almost" in the sentence of mine you quoted. If your examples are carefully selected you can make a case for "almost" any...
