after the france game at croke park in 2007, my aforementioned rugger-bugger friend walked all the way across town to the beggars bush on haddington road to have a few pints.Loike..
Did they desecrate the nearby hallow sacred turf of the country muckers GAAA pub, Quinns? Or move on back to the Ivory Towers of Kielys after the "game"
They did indeed
It's about 80% full from the looks of it. For a game against the World champions, that's pretty shocking. I wouldn't blame the IRFU so much for the tickets, they're having the same pressure put on them by the stadium money men as the FAI are. The financing for the stadium is shagged so they're trying to gouge the customer.
When the number 10 channel is being broken through at will off scrums and line-outs, I beg to differ.You don't need a fly-half who can tackle. I'm sorry, but that's ridiculous.
We've got a 10 problem in Ireland, and have had for years. Neither Rog nor Sexton, though I thought otherwise at first, is the answer.Sexton can't or won't kick, he's not allowed to kick for his team, and you've got ROG who's got an 85% kick rate, lines up assists for fun, and makes Tommy Bowe a happier player. Worst 60 minutes in a long long time, you'd worry if that team plays like this against Arg, NZ or Oz.
Can't disagree there.I don't care if Flannery's in a wheel chair, he needs to be taking the throws.
