Great to see another Wallaby from yesteryear heading across to Europe to earn a few shekels and experience a different lifestyle in the twilight of his career. Although he doesn't quite have the zip in the SH game, I'm sure he'll do well for Leinster in their version of the sport.

He has been in Europe for a while. Your finger is never quite hitting hitting the spot towny. I'd say your ma is constantly disappointed.

Apologies. I figured he had been playing park rugby in Sydney. It's hard to keep track of players once they're not considered good enough for Super Rugby contracts.

Bad attitude, saffer. You were at the level you were at in the Six Nations. It wasn't good enough.

Ireland have to either step up a new level or hope that The Wallaby's performance was a flash in the pan (and it easily could have been, knock-on-wood). But the way the Wallabies played on the weekend, I've every confidence they would have beaten any team in the six nations.

If this is the thinking in the Irish camp, "we need to get to the level we were at in the 6N", then I reckon they're in for another rude shock.

It’s the first time that Ireland have played a near full-strength Australian side since 1991. They lost then too.

I think once we get Ringrose, Leavy, Furlong and Sexton back in to the starting line up, we'll be closer to where we were during the 6 Nations. Wont weaken us anyway.

I think Sexton is the big one. Although he didn't make a bee's dick of difference when he came on last weekend. I think having him starting will be different.

The rest I don't think are going to make a big difference. The Irish scrum seemed to go from "under pressure" to "stuffed" when Furlong came on, so he needs to sort that out. I can't see Leavy stopping Pocock any more than your entire pack combined could last week, and an outside center is going to make sweet FA difference if nothing else changes.

That all said, I do expect the Sexton selection to make a difference, I expect the entire Irish team to take it up a notch, I don't expect Furlong to be pushed around in the scrum again. I think it's coin-toss, but if someone was holding a gun to my head, I'd have to back Ireland to even the series. That said, I picked Ireland for the first game and was very wrong.

It's just a fact.

Speaking truth and fact takes no "effort". Only lies and misdirection takes effort.

It's the first time since 2013 that the Aussies have faced a weakened Irish side. We rotated then too and lost. You're crap at this game.

*sigh*

Go read Towny's thread from the weekend. Furlong was stuffed in one scrum when the entire Aussie pack directed their drive through the Cronin and Furlong, with Furlong not dealing with it.
He was in four other scrums. In one of those he took a single step back, in the other three he didn't budge.
The big scrum penalty was his fourth scrum of the game.


"stuffed" as soon as he came on? :roll:

Ah they'll all make a big difference. Or at least should on paper. Granted Sexton was a bit shit when he came on.

I still expect Aus to win the backrow battle but Leavy will do a lot better than Murphy did. Probably our player of the season.

But Ringrose is the big one. Just gives us a different dimension in the backs. Aki / Henshaw was too one dimensional.

As I said, they wont weaken us anyway

Well, "stuffed" relatively. True, it only really got destroyed once. However, all together, it seemed to be under more pressure after he came on than it was before. If you wanted to be totally one-eyed-optimistic, then at very best he made zero difference.

Furlong doesnt seem to be at his best, but even with my red specs on, he's going to bring more to the table than Ryan. Whether it's enough or not we'll see on Saturday

Furlong was definitely rock solid on the oz put-ins. Didn’t move an inch. I guess that’s something.

Listen...

when you cnuts are losing it's everyone else's fault. The ref, the AR, the NZR, the Kiwis in Soup Rugby, the ALP, the f**king CIA sacking Gough, the underarms and football clubs fercryinoutloud...

now, you've had one win and you're strutting about with your little pidgeon chests thrust out like so many cnuts on a breadcrumb trying to tell everyone esle you can rename the positions on the field.

F**k right off. There's centre and...

here, have a fat crack at...

first five eightththth. And that's f**king it. I'll let you have inside centre because you haven't even seen the Bledisloe since 2003 or something. Who knows.

I'm pretty sure it's the Kiwis who are weird in this one. Everyone else calls it inside and outside centre.

Listen mate... you can't just come crashing in here like some sort of pretender to the throne or something trying to give orders.

Inside centre is...

wait for it, this is the 21st century here where I'm posting from...

inside the centre. There is a centre, and there is inside it.

I'm pretty sure it's the Kiwis who are weird in this one. Everyone else calls it inside and outside centre.

I think we're the only ones that use the term out half.

Traditionally "out-half" was Ireland and Scotland, Wales had a "stand-off" and England had a "fly-half"



I think.

Actually the Welsh originated the flyhalf idea. They were innovators back in the day. In 1878 at Cardiff, they developed a short pass to one of the half backs who would then go charging ahead with the ball. He became known as the "flying half back" which in time was shortened to the "fly half".

The kiwis invented the 5/8ths. And which is now most prominent in Rugby League. ;)
