Be ashamed of yourselves. I pity you. Sad day for a once great rugby nation.


Ahh now, now. You are either acutely aware that the Irish are possibly the whiniest bunch of rugby fans in the world and you're just throwing shade or you're a complete idiot. The Irish are still going on about the time BOD fell over in a ruck or the time ROG head butted Duncan McRae's fist while his team mates just watched.

Tbf they are in the halfpenny place to Cheika's KING HIT DEATH SMASH that later turns out to be a bit of a step and some mild contact that was exacerbated by poor old Will's crumbly bones

So Chek’s got carried away in the post match interview and not surprisingly some of the Aussie media did. Glad to see we’ve put this one to bed.

The final match should be a cracker.

I’m not sure what was exacerbated but if he had masturbated him there would have been more contact.

No, it was just an interesting point as folks you normally meet with painted nails are either female or gay ... but he is still a great scrum-half ...

Or is that what Australian men do these days ... I don't know ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I don't think Genia's sexuality has any relevance to how he plays.
Most of us voted for marriage equality anyway.
Has he ever passed the ball to Folau?

I want to know why Flametop is thinking about one of the Irish players masturbating Will Genia?

I read somewhere that there’s a girl in Melbourne Childrens Hospital with terminal cancer and Will was doing his nails the same as hers in support. I believe she is a Rebels supporter.

I prefer this answer and Thomas's to my surmise. Which was that he was signalling to M. Storm management just how good he looks in purple.

We need an news article and preferably a photo of the little girl painting Will’s nails. If that is produced i’ll admire the man to my grave.. if not, i’ll always remember Will for his nails rather then this rugby performances during this great test series.

Regardless if it was a king hit or not, coward punch whatever. The Irish have brought the niggle to this series after losing the first test.

No, not likely. But imagine if Kepu had smacked Murray and Conor went off with a broken arm?

Howls. Of. Outradge.

But there was no punch.
Even if there was a innocuous contact and if Connor Murray broke a bone, there’d be initial annoyance of losing one of your star players but there be no blame associated to the opposition player after seeing the incident in question.

Never said there was a punch - that's why I said Cheika is a goose.

But there'd be a massive Irish furore if the situations we're reversed. Your lot take your hyperbole very seriously.

Can see us losing this first test and subsequently winning the series ..... the opposite of the SA tour where he deliberately targeted the first match


At the risk of annoying the mockers gods, we were never going to win the first test with the team we sent out, but hopefully the resting of Sexton, Ringrose, Furlong, Healy, Toner and Leavy in that loss, will mean that they have enough in the tank to see us home on Saturday.

If so, its hats off to Joe. If not, I'll have a nagging doubt that we could have had the series wrapped up already, with the option now to experiment in this test, had he gone with his best team in the first match.

Everything is a bonus from here I guess. I would have been happy giving most of the senior players the summer off tbf. A series win would be fecking massive for Ireland. Massive.

We should have won the first test. We didn't win because of way more errors, mostly from first team players, than the weekend rather than the team not being good enough overall. You could argue that the players made the errors because a combination of the preparation and travel but personally I thought it was very encouraging we were winning the game coming up to the end even though I was disappointed the bench did so badly.

Aki gets the pass away or Sexton makes that kick to the corner and who knows?

I'm still here.

I'll even throw some food for thought your way before you lads get too carried away...

The Wallabies are the better attacking team and the better defensive team. How can I say that when we lost? Well, we barely had the ball, yet still out-scored you three tries to two. In other words, even though we barely had the ball, we could still score more tries (ergo, a better attacking team), and even with almost all-the-bloody ball, Ireland still couldn't score as many tries as the Wallabies (ergo, a better defensive team). It seems the logical conclusion is that if we only had even 40% of the ball, let alone 50%, the staistics suggest we would have won it. If we had 75%, as Ireland did, we would have ran away with it (if statistics played out in a predictable manner - which I cede the do not - we would score five or six tries to none or one, given the possession Ireland enjoyed).

So how did you get more points than us if we scored more tries? Penalties, obviously. So why did the Wallabies lose? Discipline. We both giftied the opposition the ball (thus the huge posession advantage) and also easy points (thus the scoreboard advantage).

Did Ireland win fair and square? Yes. Are Ireland the better team? Yes.

But don't get too carried away there lads with one victory... also, let's be honest here, what Irisman didn't have squeeky-bum-syndrome in the last 5 minute of that game? Even with all the possession and all the territory, you still almost lost, and could easily have done so. If our coaching staff and players have any brains (yet to be seen...) then Sydney ought to be a decider for the ages.

We should have won the first test. We didn't win because of way more errors, mostly from first team players, than the weekend rather than the team not being good enough overall. You could argue that the players made the errors because a combination of the preparation and travel but personally I thought it was very encouraging we were winning the game coming up to the end even though I was disappointed the bench did so badly.

Aki gets the pass away or Sexton makes that kick to the corner and who knows?


:lol: :lol:

If my brother was a girl he’d be my sister


I actually thought I was replying on the Irish thread! Not that I'd take anything back, I just wouldn't have bothered opening it up to outside responses.

You disagree that the first test was won on fine margins?

I'm still here.

I'll even throw some food for thought your way before you lads get too carried away...

The Wallabies are the better attacking team and the better defensive team. How can I say that when we lost? Well, we barely had the ball, yet still out-scored you three tries to two. In other words, even though we barely had the ball, we could still score more tries (ergo, a better attacking team), and even with almost all-the-bloody ball, Ireland still couldn't score as many tries as the Wallabies (ergo, a better defensive team). It seems the logical conclusion is that if we only had even 40% of the ball, let alone 50%, the staistics suggest we would have won it. If we had 75%, as Ireland did, we would have ran away with it (if statistics played out in a predictable manner - which I cede the do not - we would score five or six tries to none or one, given the possession Ireland enjoyed).

So how did you get more points than us if we scored more tries? Penalties, obviously. So why did the Wallabies lose? Discipline. We both giftied the opposition the ball (thus the huge posession advantage) and also easy points (thus the scoreboard advantage).

Did Ireland win fair and square? Yes. Are Ireland the better team? Yes.

But don't get too carried away there lads with one victory... also, let's be honest here, what Irisman didn't have squeeky-bum-syndrome in the last 5 minute of that game? Even with all the possession and all the territory, you still almost lost, and could easily have done so. If our coaching staff and players have any brains (yet to be seen...) then Sydney ought to be a decider for the ages.


A dubious penalty try after two dubious penalties in a row plus a consolation try? Well done scoring from your only line break though :thumbup:

And I hope Cheika is as delighted with an 81% tackle success rate (34 missed tackles) as you seem to be.

So Schmidt is resting as many Leinster players as he possibly can, given that they’ve had the longest/hardest season?

I’d see the logic of that if he wasn’t asking James Ryan to go again. It’s a very odd team to say the least ..... :?

Can see us losing this first test and subsequently winning the series ..... the opposite of the SA tour where he deliberately targeted the first match


At the risk of annoying the mockers gods, we were never going to win the first test with the team we sent out, but hopefully the resting of Sexton, Ringrose, Furlong, Healy, Toner and Leavy in that loss, will mean that they have enough in the tank to see us home on Saturday.

Both very fine and could have gone either way. If we would have had 10% more possession we would have had 2 more scores in the 2nd

We absolutely f**ked Australia in every facet of play. If Aus hadn't given up three pens on the try line and two deliberate knock ons to prevent line breaks maybe, just maybe, Ireland would have scored more trys and less pens?

The absolutely atrocious reffing with be massively improved on Saturday, which should have Aus worried.

“10% more possession” isn’t fine margins in test rugby. That’s 8 minutes of the game, it’d be a huge swing of the stats.
