      Rugby player runs into rugby player shocker!!

      Richie McCaw's hip made contact with Francois Louw, not his elbow https://t.co/HERi8eMg2w https://t.co/a7LuReBYht

        Not much between an arse and an elbow after all now is there?

          Couldn't agree more PP, they are a great rugby side, from a wonderful rugby nation, with such a wonderful rugby heritage e.g. haka, etc, but equally they are a royal pain in the hole, with gruff enough, arrogant fans who have as much humour as Ireland has heatwave s in October!!

          At the risk of sounding like a broken record, if the kiwis got a draw like ours this rwc, e.g. if they instead met Argentina as their last match, there would have been a canary fest. It world likely have come up in their national parliament, I'm not kidding, whereas we limp out of the rwc playing a rugby quarter final without 4 of our top players, directly due to a brutal game versus other top seed 6.5 days before, without hardly a whimper out of us. Jeez, in Ireland we're such goody 2 shoes boy scouts sometimes, no wonder we get crappy , rwc draws that other's would baulk at, and that we've Euro 8+billion extra on our national debt that no sovereign nation should ever have accepted.

          Back on topic, :), the kit glove handling of the Kiwis, their sense of indignation if someone wants to ignore their precious, psyche out haka 'war' dance, the blissful blind eyes refs have afforded King Ritchie for so long, the gift of the last rwc final to their choking, floundering team robbed from the French, by the bent, specially selected (by a kiwi), hometown ref, not to mention their completely one eyed, disgraceful handling of the Bodgate incident all add up to a slightly uneasy feeling towards team New Zealand in same way one would feel about an over indulged, spoilt bully in school, who nonetheless remains the best rugby player. You know the type, w******rs!!

                  Ireland got an easy draw with 1 week between every game and I didn't hear anyone complaining before last week. You are desperately searching for excuses retrospectively and its fooling no one

                        It's very odd how that old 'children should be seen but not heard' caper has been turned on it's head with those squeaky, night-time, one-way, listening devices.

                            Looking forward to this game.

                            Hard to call.

                            Australia seemed to be humming but last week would have you wonder - maybe they just weren't focused.

                            Argentina looked great last week at times but frankly we were terrible at those same times so did we flatter them with our poor showing.


                            We'll see soon.

                            If it rains will Australia be able for it?

                              So Hooper is the youngest Aus & fastest ever player to reach 50 caps? Some achievement, he's 24 never gets injured never been out of form if he carries on like this he could easily join the 100 club well before he hits 30.

                                I think we looked terrible mostly because Argentina made us look that way. They are a very good team from 1-15 with no real weakness and are playing creative rugby. They had a momentary blip by allowing Ireland back into it for a bit, but soon took charge again. I am hoping they cause an upset against Oz today.
