Re: DEATHS IN ENGLISH CHANNEL

I think we should take in a lot more. What does Ireland do with regards taking in refugees? Does it take in the same percentage as other EU 'frontier countries' or 'by virtue of geography' does it just look on from the sidelines and 'tut tut' the British?

That came from absolutely no chasers on Murray's box kick out of the 22. If someone had been putting their catcher under pressure like we did against New Zealand they'd have been pinned back.

Re: Ireland v Land of the long white lockdown Official Match Thread

Kiwis trying every trick at the rucks. Flopping over, coming through, tackles around the ruck and just happening to roll towards the wrong side. It'd be funny if they weren't getting away with it, but that's alright because at least they're being caught for their rampant offsides.
