DON'T RUCK With Us!

Robbie Henshaw one of our great rugby heroes recently had his laptop stolen from his car and it contained valuable study notes. He duly called upon fellow team mate and man of steel Bundee Aki to pay a visit to a traveler's house in Galway City where he suspected he might be able to locate it!petunia

Gardai intervene after Connacht players end up in standoff over Ireland star's stolen laptop - Independent.ie

Watch: Police Called As Connacht Players Retrieve Robbie Henshaw's Stolen Laptop - Pundit Arena

It resulted in a stand off as more and more of the local travelereens got involved. Eventually the local Pigz who are huge traveler supporters and let's be honest love them to bits intervened and sent our rugby heroes on their way!:rolleyes:

So is this snobism or is it heroes standing up for themselves and their community?

You know I always said in Ireland if you were the greatest rugby player who had ever lived but were also born a tinker your rugby skills would never see the light of day at a club!

Blatant anti-thieving prejudice. I'd probably say so if I was on the Pavee Payroll..

Prominent rugby players were among those who had penalty points removed. So one can understand his they got the impression they were above the law. We need to get them to realise they are not. If they suspect any citizen of a crime then they should bring their evidence to the Gardai like the rest of us.

Maybe because of their special tax-breaks they didn't feel right about using our public services but use them they must.

It reminds me of the story that a few of our beloved indigenous ethnic minority moved over to Finland, Tampere, IFRC.
Locals became quite disturbed when 2 young nax were seen at a local pond shooting ducks with an air gun and AFAIK killed one of them. The police came and never having encountered inbreed adhd behaviour at this level before asked them what the fook are you doing? They replied they were hungry, the police had very serious doubts about this when they accompanied them back to where they were 'living' and saw €250K caravans and cars.
Their uncle was interviewed by a local newspaper the next day and he claimed it was all 'racism'!
Indeed wasn't there a thread here about Irish and British nax running amok in Cologne which apart from Engerlish football hooliganism had never witnessed anything like it since the war!

Fair play to them, but I suspect that if it were any one of us anonymous chaps, the local polis would have sent us on our way! Probably after having our heads beaten in by the ethnic chaps!

Actually some time ago a former prominent Irish rugby international was up on charges of seriously assaulting a bouncer outside a Galway City night club!

And the pigz would advise us not to press charges!

So you are blaming Henshaw for trying to get his lap top back!

Jesus wept, heard it all now .......

Are you serious?

Someone steals your stuff and you cannot take it off them?

Please cite the section of the "Its my stuff but please do take it if you want" Act 2016 that prohibits taking your property back.

Or to put it another way, it I wander into your spacious apartment and take your laptop will you wave me off or try to take it back?

If the former please PM your address...

Thanks.

Surely if this fella Henshaw had an honourable bone in his body, he would have got his mother to fight Mrs. McDonagh for the laptop. A racist, obviously ....

It's really surprising that semi literate inbreds with ADHD who are literally treated like royalty and actively encouraged to bollick act by the state would act in this fashion!:roll:
