Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Essentially, our pool in terms of fixtures has been set up (deliberately by the organisers) for Japan to take a crack at Ireland but mostly Scotland. Japan have been given the closest thing to a gimme of any side the World Cup with the opening fixture against Russia. It is clear the assumption is th...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

The idea that Gary Ringrose is the answer to this problem is rather dubious. He is horribly out of form and frankly his tackling since the turn of the year has been nothing short of pathetic. I would not be surprised today Bundee Aki/ Farrell midfield.

Unfortunately, this is behind the Irish Times paywall, but this is a superb set of pictures of every single Irish player going to the WC and the management and support team with their families taking over the last six months.

My God but Gatland is a whiny bitch.

Going on his form since the turn of the year, Gary Ringrose should not even be the 23. His defence has been truly awful at times.

Pleased in the sense that Joe has not done an EOS. Asserted his authority in a way that sends a clear approach and game plan. I may not like the decisions, especially at scrum half but clearly Joe has decided not to die wondering. Now Joe, how about on Saturday it’s Farrell at 12 and Aki at 13? You ...
