Didn’t something like that happen before when Wales scored an illegal try against Ireland to dash our 6Ns hopes.. after Mike Phillips took a quick lineout with the wrong ball. The English TMO allowed it. Not sure was it your man who acts like Major Gowen in Faulty Towers.


Nolanator beat you to that reference mate.


Some saying the disallowed try is karma bitting Gatland in the ass.

Well people will believe any old bollocks.



The try was not checked by the TMO. It was when you had insane rules about only certain things allowed to be checked by the TMO. The ref asked the Scottish TJ if the correct ball was used and he said yes it was (lied). The TJ disappeared never to be seen from again.

Well I was more talking about believing in karma, but are you saying World Rugby (or IRB or whoever) killed the Scottish TJ?

Zebo, if he was around, or Conway would be 23.

Actually, Payne might have been FB instead of Kearney but not a guarantee.

If we are missing Furlong, SOB, Ringrose and if you count Payne's impact at FB then that is a significant blow to our ability to unlock the Welsh defence but still not a B team.

Someone posted on the Irish thread that we're 10 point favourites. Is that right? Sounds bonkers.

The Bookies have you as 1l4. Which for me is just about right. I think you will win easily by 10 to 15 points tbh. Home advantage is massive.


Sorry for digging this up from page 2, but home advantage? In an Ireland v Wales game? You’re either taking the piss, or haven’t actually followed either team for very long.

Well, home advantage for Ireland under Schmidt is pretty important. 4 losses, none in the 6N, two of them were NZ and one was a WC warm up.

Wales did get closest in the 6N, tbf.

Well I hope you teach him not to be a bigot Winnie, you seem like a good bloke so I know this isn't your fault. He probably picked it up visiting some terrible place on the Internet, it's so important to keep an eye on his surfing. I know you can do it though :thumbup:

Must it be all three, what if they're older and have false teeth but are still sharp of mind and have their drinking very under control? Again you seem like a good person Winnie so I'm not calling you a bigot.

As I said, under Schmidt, it's home advantage although you have a slight edge with the draw. Prior to that, we won away in 2013, you in 2012. Home wins in 2010 and 2011, I think, and then away wins in 2008 and 2009.

It’s been very much home advantage over the last few years

Thought I do like Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau I've always admired Ireland's Call with rousing lines like

Ireland, Ireland
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We'll answer Ireland's call

You couldn't get that in Wales, you'd get

Wales, Wales
Together standing tall
Shoulder to shoulder
We'll answer Wales' call
Except for Liam the roided, valley commando
Shut up Mike you towny cünt

And I think that would throw off the melody.

Some suggestion that Moriarty won't make the Ireland match - picked up a shoulder knock so will be touch and go. Faletau also not quite ready so we might be seeing Navidi switched to 8, Tips back in at 7, with Shingler at 6. A very mobile backrow. Could James Davies sneak a bench spot?

With Moriarty not quite 100%, and Tipuric coming in, there is an argument that it's improved...but I liked the balance that Moriarty brought, a bit of a contrast to Shingler and Navidi. Nice position to be in.
