I allowed an extra day to let the weekends results settle and to wait for the online backlash to subside a bit before reviewing the Irish exodus from Europe. Firstly, this is not the end of days like many would have you believe, losses happen in sport, it is all about what happens next after … More The Irish exit Europe, but it is not the end of days

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?
