    BT - you're evidently carrying a spear for Ireland and the Irish. That's fine, that's your bag. Generalisms about whinging, hardening up, etc, etc are just so much hot air. Much like the media articles that seem to be upsetting you so much. I'd question if you ever would want the opportunity to fight alongside someone Irish in any kind of war - sounds to me like you'd want to be on the other side. 😉

    As an aside why do you spend so much time on this forum, the roar, posting comments on stuff etc and not on those of your compatriots?

    And I am giving you an answer as to why he may spend time on here



  • One thing I would say is that at the game I was sitting beside an Irish acquaintance who is a good rugby man. Before kick off we discussed Jack O'Piper and he indicated that the Irish didn't like him after he let Guirado hammer Sexton with impunity in the previous France match. Not whingeing, just stating the fact. No quibbles after the event with the result. Did bemoan the fact that poor Irish kicking helped our cause significantly. Thought Barrett strip ought to have been a try. Like everywhere some Irish flamin gallahs but also some great rugby folk.

    There aren't any discussion fora in Ireland like the Fern or the Roar. I enjoy discussions with fans from further afield than Ireland. I enjoy writing articles from time to time on different aspects of rugby which these fora allow me to do.

    I do participate in a discussion forum from U.K., mainly to do with club rugby and sometimes the Six Nations.



  • The actual ruling is that the Cane tackle was deemed accidental.

    Could have told you all that days ago.

    @Tregaskis said in Ireland II:

    @Billy-Tell That's an epic whinge packed into a short report of a radio interview.

    Here's the highlights:

    I thought I was at the Colosseum on Saturday night...
    deeply, deeply disturbing
    The game is in serious trouble, because this is a disgrace
    What happened to Robbie Henshaw is a disgrace
    I think there was three head injuries, a number of neck injuries
    The All Blacks raped my grandma and poured sugar in my petrol tank.

    Paul Kimmage has been winding himself up into a lather on rugby for some time, and he has them now firmly in the crosshairs of his crusading sights. It's not really a New Zealand thing, it's more, well, all of rugby really.

    Is he the head injury crusade guy? What's his background?

    He is. Well one of them. Along with PEDs. His background is in cycling, and he wrote a book many years ago - Rough Ride - about the goings on he had first hand experience of on the Tour and other circuits. He wasn't popular as a result particularly from the Irish darling of the time, tour winner, Stephen Roche.

    Kimmage gave up cycling and moved into writing/journalism. He partnered up with David Walsh, another Irish journo not popular with the dopers on the Tour. Kimmage famously wrote of Armstrong coming back into cycling after his cancer treatment as the cancer is back. Armstrong publicly excoriated him at an international press conference for the remark playing the big man and belittling him. Kimmage is a terrier and does not let go. Himself and Walsh were quietly chuffed when reality finally caught up with Lance.

    Himself and Neil Francis have been beating steady drums on PEDs in rugby for a while now and Kimmage said he had decided to conduct an investigation into it. Which will be another terrier job if he's convinced there's a story there.

    Wait and see.

    Intimidation tactics make referees lenient on All Blacks to protect their own careers, top coach says.

  • @Virgil Written by Matt Williams the shit ozzie coach whose been living in Ireland for years. He was in the Irish tv3 studio for the world Cup last year and was going on about us for this then.... It's a serious yawn fest at this stage.



  • Ha - the terror the rest of the fucking world lives in lest New Zealand get cross with them! Apparently, especially the Australians.

    Imagine the size of the balls Vernon Pugh must have had when he took the RWC2003 hosting rights off us. I'm surprised we didn't nuke London in retaliation. What did we do? Must have been something brutal that I missed. Force them to play Shortland Street on the BBC?

    Not sure why Jaco Peyper would have been worried about sending anyone else off - his career was already fucked when he yellow-carded Aaron Smith.



  • @Billy-Tell said in Ireland II:

    I would hate to have fought alongside an Irishman in one of the world wars, "harden up" is just not an Irish characteristic.

    I'll probably be labeled another Irish whinger for this but that's a fairly unnecessary comment to throw about when discussing a rugby match and a few clowns on the internet.

    Tens of thousands of Irishmen and women gave their lives to those wars and just as those from England, France, New Zealand or anywhere else, they deserve better than having their "hardness" questioned by some fella sitting on a sofa behind a laptop.

    It's just a game man. Ye won this one fair and square so just try to enjoy that for a while if you can.



  • @Virgil Unfortunately all this whinging from the opposition is having an impact on how the refs are perceiving the ABs. The fact that they are the most penalised team in world rugby is largely due to this.



  • I've enjoyed this thread as a small place of sanity where rational rugby fans gather to discuss the game. Please stop any references to wars and cowardice etc as we really don't need it here.

    So far I haven't seen any complaints by Joe Schmidt about the game - that is good for Ireland. He's a canny chap, he'll be learning the lessons and planning for the next time.

    Yeah that's totally fair, especially given I was born in the 70s! Pent up frustration got the better of me. I don't think NZ could have been more magnanimous after Chicago but the "favour" has not been remotely returned. I've seen hysterical levels of Irish angst about Sam Cane, that the citing process has shown to be a crock of pooh.

    Look, I have a number of Irish mates, who have all been much more reasonable, and I apologise for the World War reference which wasn't really on.

    I just think it's a crying shame the aftermath of what I thought was a magnificent test match, and I think a few of us are quite jealous of that performance by the Irish backrow, which was magnificent, and should have been match-winning.

    I'll settle down no doubt, and I do look forward to the Ire-Aussie game. I would love to see Carbery start and Joe do something different with his back 3, although the loss of Henshaw probably means changes will be minimised.

    I don't think I've seen a more exciting emerging NH backrow talent than VDF, he is a keeper.

    Am pretty sure refs read newspapers too and subconsciously absorb some of what is being said. Much like how the wallaby scrum used to be penalsied unfairly on a number of occasions due to the reputation they had of being a weak scrum. It happens.

    Awesome, so if we plant some stuff in social medea to certain refs we can control the game through the refs subconscious!! Brilliant!!

    That's a fair and magnanimous response, BT. I didn't want to comment too specifically on your war comment earlier, but munstergreen and yourself have dealt with it fairly. I totally agree with you and others about the fuckwit responses from commenters online about the Dublin test but as we all know electronic paper never refused ink. I compare them to some of the Kiwi twonks that continue to write that Chicago test was just an exhibition match and it was a second string NZ team, with lots of players out of position, and a narrow field, and the first try shouldn't have been given, etc, etc.

    It's why I like this forum and a couple of others, where sanity prevails - most of the time - with the odd uppercut thrown out every now and then just to keep people on their toes, myself included.

    I'll repeat, it was a great test match, and the better team won on the day - no doubts. Here's a few quotes from the only people that actually matter - the players and coach.

    "A tough one to take, it probably proves why they're the best team in the world at the minute. Two weeks ago, we put a lot of pressure on them, and we didn't put as much pressure on them this week. When they got those breaks and the passes stuck, they got in with a few tries' - Devin Toner

    'All credit to New Zealand, they're a quality outfit. You could tell there was an extra pep in their step. That first five minutes, we kinda sat back off them and gave them too much respect, waiting to see what was going to happen. We'll learn from it and come back better' - Simon Zebo

    It would've been nice to have another one, a decider I suppose. Just proud of the way we performed tonight. I thought our defence was pretty good, our discipline probably let us down but it was pretty satisfying to turn the result (from Chicago) around' - Dane Coles

    "All credit to New Zealand. With a side losing players (to yellow cards) like that we hope to take advantage. We tried our best and we were very close to cracking them. We tried really hard to come back into the game. We tried to fight our way back but credit to them for holding us out. It was a tough Test match." Conor Murray

    ""We will learn from this, and to be able to put the All Blacks under as much pressure as we did...you know a lot of people were suggesting that they'd come back with a backlash that would put us out of the game early on, and I thought we fought our way back into the game and it was a true competition, and a true Test match." Joe Schmidt.

    That's awesome. I just masturbated to that. It's the fantasy of every rugby fan, to have their team above the law, and be able to do what ever they want without fear of sanction. Cheers for the wank material Matt you sook. Your bitter tears are natures sweetest lubricant.

    Is this the same bloke who did the tearful "analysis" of the 2011 World Cup final where he said "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, but France were robbed"? and pointed out a couple of instances he thought we should have been penalised (all the while saying he hates talking about refs). Because if so, he might be my favourite porn star ever.



  • @Billy-Tell said in Ireland II:

    Where is poth ale made by the way?

    Created by Frederick A Poth in Philadelphia from late 1800s. No longer brewed since 1936.



  • I originally watched the test on my phone in a hotel in Malaysia so missed a bunch of what was happening at ruck time.

    I watched about 20 minutes of a replay on BeIn last night and I actually couldn't believe what the Irish were getting away with at ruck time. I'd been reading this thread and wondering whether the penalty count and ruck kerfuffle was actually fair.

    In one set of three defensive rucks in a row the Irish team flopped, held on to the ball on the ground, and didn't roll away with no sanction whatsoever. In one of them Read was on the ground with his hands up dejected looking right at Peyper. Now, we may have been doing the same the rest of the match and were rightly penalised for it, but, it seemed to be a bit on the nose in this short period of time.

    I'll watch the match in it's entirety later as I managed to record a full replay overnight.



  • *Williams suggested there was evidence to back up his theory, though he was a bit sketchy on his numbers and some of his evidence was old.

    "I haven't got the exact stats but I know, I said on this programme a few years ago: for every 11 penalties, South Africa got a yellow card; for every 12 penalties, Australia got a yellow card.

    "For New Zealand, this was around two years ago, three years ago between the [World] Cups. For every 43 penalties against New Zealand, there was a yellow card.*

    Well, Scott, from Chimaus' statistics, this year, for every 16.25 penalties the ABs get a yellow card.

    In the same games, for every 50.5 penalties the opposition have been yellow-carded.

    We're being ripped off!

    Fair play and no worries!

    I agree with you on the hysteria that's taken over so many of our journalists and internet warriors. It's been embarrassing and has detracted from the excellent effort of our squad and coaches over the 2 games.

    I wasn't at this game but I was there for the match in 2013 and I think we were magnanimous in defeat then - most of us left frustrated about kicking poorly to your back 3 at such a crucial time and I don't remember anyone having complaints about the ref.

    The Oz game and our selection will be interesting. I often get frustrated at some of Joe's selections, particularly when it comes to our backline, but it's hard to argue with the improvements he's made. Hopefully the more we progress, the less conservative he will become in regard to our attack. I guess the onus is also on our more gifted attackers to work on those less glamorous aspects of their game which Joe values most.

    Van der Flier is a cracking player and Leavy behind him looks a great prospect too. With O'Donoghue coming through at 8 we really are blessed in the back row. Peter O'Mahony not making the squad last weekend was a crazy show of strength for us.

    I don't think we're too far behind anywhere in the pack or at halfback to be honest. Well as long as Murray stays fit! Where we fall behind is producing backs who can both attack and defend as well as your lads do.

  • @munstergreen welcome to the fern.

    I don't think Billys comment was in the right forum but historically not far from the mark where ww2 is concerned .

    Anyway you might have noticed that we seem to be a tad sick of the articles from the northern hemisphere about our team This isn't a recent thing , in the 80s and 90s we were accused of being professional .....expect our players tended to head north in the off season to get paid for playing rugby which made the whole thing a bit odd, then there was a dozen or so years of bullshit about poaching from the pacific islands which has died off a fair bit lately , then its the referees are afraid to penalize us, we didn't actually win the 2011 rwc the ref gifted it to us which overlooks the debacle in 2007. This years whinge seems to be about thuggery , you'll understand if we're a bit over it already especially in light of the bullshit flowing from the usual suspects about the eye gouge that didn't stop even after the supposed victim said didn't happen.





  • @mariner4life as a parent when my son rides his bike I worry he might fall off or get hit by a vehicle, similarly if he gets on a bus it might crash, or cross the road a speeding car might hit him....



  • @taniwharugby right now my only worry is that he grows up to be as whiney, and as sore a loser as an Irishman



  • Checked Foxsports 500 (foxsports news) at lunchtime and pushed the red button for "active" and there is a report on the citings headline "Fekitoa cops ban" or similarly innocuous.

    Ok. So I open even though I already knew the deal.

    They must have reprinted the story directly from some Irish tinfoil hat wearer's facebook feed.

    Apparently "World rugby bosses have admitted that Fekitoa should not have been on the field to score the winning try". This "admission" is embarrassing, All Black thuggery, 11 citings against ABs , Sam Cane, headshots ...

    Freaking a grade trolling and whinging wrapped into one.

    Also, re Matt Williams (distinctly unsuccessful as a coach IIRC): was the guy who tried to illustrate that NZ did not get penalised in the 2007 RWC final by showing an incident we got penalised for.
