    We should have carbon driven tariffing that taxes incoming imports based on targets. That would render those countries just as uncompetitive at a stroke, and force action from those who want to...

    Is that what he's saying though? His argument on the whole seems to be that mass non-participation would de-legitimise a system that allows participation only because it doesn't change anything...

    Is it reasonable that our political system asserts its monopoly on change while remaining completely intransigent?

    I'm not sure I agree with him, but his argument that we cannot trust the...

    Conway will have his work cut out. He looked a little at sea defensively in the first half last week. Stopping Vunipola in the tight will have to be a priority too.

    Kearney vs Madigan would make some difference to how you think about their countering game, and what you're thinking about their FB doing coming into the line.

    But I don't know enough about how we...

    For the record, we only have a 3-2 win advantage over Scotland in our last five fixtures. In those five, they also have a win in Dublin to their name.

    Apparently they told him he wouldn't play for the Boks as he wasn't big enough.

    If they were to change their minds, and he accepted the call up, presumably he'd cease to be a project player...

    They're hardly the first to commercialise it. You could argue that a play or a book that we pay for directly is just as much a "hijack" as an advert based on the same event.

    As long as it's done...

    The upstairs bar is a bit ornate, but the downstairs bit is pretty standard really. Waxy's is very hit and miss - good if you get a big crowd for a big game, but forget it most of the time. It's a...

    I was genuinely shocked by his elevation, to be honest. They're a shower of flat out racist ****ing charlatans. Their "statistics" are a disgrace.

    Definitely true. I just meant the notion of Fla coming from nowhere to the big break. i think he was more of the Darragh Hurley "is it ever going to happen for him", minus the injuries.

    Tigers are a tough read. Really expected them to get beaten by Ulster. If they'd enough for Ravenhill, you'd think they have enough for PyS.

    Toulon to beat Ulster.

    Castres to pip Leinster.

    Daithi,

    I don't know if the blocker here is a linguistic or a philosophical one.

    He is, but it was Cipriani who caused the problems, imo. A big crashy 12 is like a bowling ball. It's the guy who releases him that does the damage.

    I was a bit concerned with Hurley's performance, particularly in the first half.

    He was facing an awkward combo, mind. Overall you'd say that Tuitipou is past his best, but a footballer like...
