South Africa v Ireland Test#2



  • Did the chap that got red carded get banned for this game too?
     
    Barnes ssaid it well during the week in that if Ireland and England don't get up for either of the next two test, the first test wins won't mean much at all.
     
    I tink Ireland can get the job done this weekend.



  • Yeah, I think he got a week ban



  • Yeah, I think he got a week ban

    Spot on!



  • If SA don't hammer Ireland physically this week then walk over the broken bodies to score tries, then all pride in the jersey has been lost.



  • It's those sort of Neanderthal tactics that have SA where they are. NH teams love narrow 1 of the ruck "he-man" tactics. Easy to defend.



  • I've got Ireland +9.5 and am struggling to think of why the TAB isn't offering a tighter spread. 
     
    I can see SA winning since they have a lot of pride in their jumper, (arguably more pride than any other team in the world) but I would be surprised if they do it comfortably.



  • South Africa always tougher on the high veldt.
     
    They'll bounce back this week I think as much as I'd like Ireland to win given my ancestry.



  • If the Boks don't win - at altitude, home crowd, Irish key injuries/suspensions, series on the line - then they are shit.



  • I have been reading a few articles and maybe the Irish are being careful not to say anything to fire up the Saffers but jeez they don't sound confident of winning. "Maybe we can win". "Maybe if we keep all 15 of our guys on the field"."Maybe this". "Maybe that".  FIRE UP IRELAND.

    Ireland $4 head to head, not as good as last week, but still decent.



  • These NH goal kickers are bloody sharp shooters.. everyone seems to have a Wilkinson type goal kicker..
    Irish up 12-3
    10 mins left in the first half



  • Why would the ref award the try, but then take time out to check if there's a try?
    Why don't u check with ur assistant refs first before awarding it
    Irish up 19-3
    5 mins left in the half



  • South Africa looking as shit as Ireland's looking sharp



  • Is that the crowd booing off the boks? Wow



  • SA are a complete and utter shambles. At this rate they are in for a caning.



  • Sad to see the Springboks playing so poorly. Must be one of their worst performances ever.



  • Woke up so I checked the score. Just had a good laugh. An extra $300 in the pocket so no complaints from my side. If you don't wanna pick your best players cause you don't like their skin tone then that's what you deserve. RIP Springboks



  • Going ok so far.
    Stay on your toes Ireland. The job is only half done.

  • A South African winger clean bust a tackle? First time in a while I've seen that
