    Corkonions are a strange breed. Look at ROG and Roy Keane.

    PS - I am one and I am married to one.

    The Telegraph is now apologising for the error of its ways - perhaps they should have listened more carefully to the words of our new anthem

    Confusion and muddle in the IT reporting on the Romania game....

    Gerry Thornley said


    "Typical poaching at the breakdown by Rory Best earned a penalty from which Ian Madigan opened the scoring from 43 metres. "




    Gavin Comiskey said


    "Had such a busy presence at the breakdown and around the rucks that we briefly mistook that green scrum cap for Rory Best. Real pressure on Sean Cronin."

    has anyone read an explanation of how the fixtures are arranged - leaving some (weaker) teams) with a shorter preparation time - perhaps a bit of journalistic endeavour in that direction might be possible?
    You know your right, But hey....

    As an English republican atheist, I only ever sing God Save the Queen at England v Ireland matches.
    And then only to wind my brother in law up!

    Was it just before Maurice Ignatius Keane's first cap against France in gay Paree in 1974 that he informed big William John MacBride and Cameron Mike Henderson Gibson that they had been included in his prayers to the BVM and that they needn't worry about a thing?

    As I understand it - the offending piece was only in the print edition.
