Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Yeah, was pretty pissed off with the lineout call there. Complete bollox. Can't jump across a lineout...for exactly the reason we saw there when someone does.

Westies are unreal fair fcuks to them :thumbup:

Would be some result to hold out but can't see it. Living off scraps at the moment.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

France are going to take our set piece apart, similarly to how Sarries did Leinster, except they will murder our lineout as well.

Byrne, Heffernan, Bealham is not an international standard front row unfortunately.

Regardless of how he goes when he gets back and if he ever makes it to the level he was pre-injury, fair fcking play to Dan Leavy. Horror injury, seriously tough guy to just put the head down and get on with rehab.

It's fcuking Italy, in a 6 Nations no one gives a shite about really...there are about 10 other players i'd have in ahead of him.
