Their just a little on edge. It's not the best time of the year for England to drag them into the 21st century.

Between the Brits making an ever greater show of themselves, that abomination of a jersey, Brendan Grace passing, and the DUP being made a show of in the eve of the 12th, we're back talking about Sexton?

Its the usual suspects from the Red Hand Commandos and no doubt Jumper will be along to give them extra credibility
If anyone suggested that Irish posters were in the IRA there would be all sorts of shit and bannings, saying Ulster posters are in the Red Had Commandos = grand

FFS lads.

Also, are you also going to pretend Sexton wasn't shite for Ireland and that it's only non-Leinster people saying this?
You are aware of the Name your fellow one eyed ulster fan posts under or are you on your usual bosom clutching search for offence?
and secondly no one is denying he was below his usual standard but it was in an underperforming team including a couple of dismal performances at hooker by Best but oddly none of the Belfast brains trust picked up on that.
The Red Hand is a symbol of Ulster.

The Red Hand Commandos are a terrorist organisation that went round murdering people.

See the difference?

Yep at 34 and that abortion of a season behind him I’m sure his best days are still to come...
Do you remember 2017?

Anyway, I thought it was agreed that Murray was the worst Irish player this year. Not that he didn't have plenty of competition.

I think you will find that many welcome not keeping laws on the statue books just to appease those who believe middle eastern fairy tales.

fair play to Les Kiss ...

It would be some irony if an injury hit Ireland lost to NZ in the RWC, with Seevu Reece playing for them on the wing, while Jackson was sitting at home

Lads, I've forgotten how much I enjoy actually playing rugby, 5 years off and I'm loving doing pre-season for the first time in my life rather than hating the fitness.

Had reconstruction of the ACL 8 years ago, no real issues since. Bigger issues with ankle, groin and hamstring. Just kept breaking down.

With loads of people on Holiday etc it gives people on average 6 weeks before September, half the squad are teachers so all headed off for at least 2 weeks.

The IRFU have just put the Jersey photos up on social media. It's looks like the photo put up here with the horrible green might be accurate; the IRFU have clearly edited the photo to mute the colours. x(
