What a difference a week makes. Last week the Irish rugby community online where wondering how the team would wake up and play better, how Murray gets picked and how Farrell is supposed to be adding tricks into the setup. Most thought that welcoming the Welsh would show where the team actually where, that being … More Ireland take the Welsh, Sexton takes Poite
The internet after an Ireland game is truly a horrific place. The reactions are mostly so far over the top that it is bananas. This week’s reviews spoke about play-acting, Cooney v Sexton and having expectations that make no real sense.
Here is the link to my chat with Mr. Harpin on Rugby himself about the Nucifora report, being half pregnant and getting half a cake. A great listen for the commute home. Always check out Jeff’s site, http://www.Harpinonrugby.net The Couch Pundit and The Godfather
So the IRFU are trying to do the exact same thing that we are. That being get the ghost of RWC 2019 put away before we all sit down for Christmas dinner, a valiant idea and one that is probably correct. The actual findings on the other hand, may take longer to wash the stink … More RWC findings,Nucifora and babies with bathwater
So the Irish provinces marched into week 2 of Europe in fine fettle. The ghost of the cup that shall never be mentioned looks to have been exorcised after a clean sweep in week 1. Could they continue in week 2?
So Mondays after any kind of bad defeat is always tough. No matter if it’s us playing or supporting, both bite hard. This one bites a bit harder than most.
