Typical Whingy. Attempt to stir the pot but when challenged fail to back it up. Stick to the personal insults, you're much better at it.

So you are just looking for an excuse to be offended, as usual. Glad we cleared that up. Stick to insulting your wife's heritage, you're much better at that.

He basically said what everyone has been saying here for the last 2 years both excellent players but
Re Hendie "But he needs to be on his game all the time"
Re Stockdale, he needs to sort out his defence.

It didn't take fellow pros to notice their failings yet it won't be long before it is same people who will be defending them if they continue to show the same failings.

F**K OFF, WE’RE FULL.

Probably. The EU are stealing our ham sandwiches ffs, they’ll definitely shaft us with our phone networks.
No intention of going near the border, just had seen something somewhere else about roaming abroad limits in the EU.
Oh how I would laugh if the Gardai stopped all the lads coming over the border for GAA matches and took their sambos off them :lol:
Something we can all agree on :thumbup:

The North is still in the single market for goods and the island of Ireland is a single phytosanitary unit. There is no prospect of hang sangiches being seized.

With the HEC going straight to knockouts there's some tasty matches to look forward to, I heard the pools are staying apart so Leinster will host Sale, Wasps v Toulon, Racing host Exeter, Toulouse v Bristol and Munster v Clermont, a lot of games that could go either way with the home advantage of the crowd gone some bit.

As I said with Ulster if Leinster can't beat Glaws they don't deserve to go further.

Might put a €10 on the “possibles” if those teams are put out. Back line looks superior. Back row would be a good tussle also.

Love to see it.
The only problem is what happens if the possibles outplay their opposite number but they don’t have 10-15 years of international experience under their belts?
