Re: Have we reached Peak Arrogance?

50/50 for me. How often do the ABs win in Sydney? The stats will show us. Most of the time, but not nearly enough compared with Brisbane. 29 wins, 19 losses and 2 draws. Brisbane has 14 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws. Thanks. The ABs win 3 out of 5 test matches in Sydney. I don't see the current AB env...

Just looked at the medal table. Ireland isn't even on it yet. To "hop on the bandwagon" means to join in a wave of success of a team or a cause, doesn't it? But Ireland hasn't shown the slightest sign of being successful. :?
