Rugby 2018

I know you did. So at what point do you draw the line 50/50 Irish to mercenary split? Surely you either agree with it in principle or you don’t?

The whole notion that a top 5 country can hire/import players with the sole purpose of exploiting the residency rule to make them Irish internationals is just beyond me. Money corrupts sport.

He might even go to the trouble of learning the words to the anthem and everyone will think he’s great.


#2326

Watch the cheer that goes up when he appears on the big screens.

I’m with Ewan McKenna on this.

And Tayto, the fascist.


#2327

If Ibrahim Halawa cannot get his game for the Irish rugby team, then the whole venture is racist. We should also be giving a run to Johnny Connors, one or two gay lads , a Roma nomad and someone homeless. Only then will our team be fully inclusive!!


#2328

Don’t forget to include a Dublin hurling fan …


#2329

They’re very inclusive, as are all hurling fans I suppose.


#2330

Best of luck to Bundee Aki on his debut. I’m sure he will do us proud. #COYBIB


#2331

Coybib? Really?


#2332

Ballsbridge …


#2333

Correct…The home team (can’t call them Irish) playing the Boks are wearing blue!!!


#2334

Those jerseys are grey.


#2335

Really? Look navy on tv here in bar … or maybe it’s the drink :rofl::rofl::rofl:


#2336

Bundee off to a flyer! He’s well up for this -C’mon the Irish ,…


#2337

Ghoys doing well ATM , Sexton unlucky with the conversion , tough angle .14 zip


#2338

Considering the only time we seem to wear our second jersey is when we play South Africa they could have picked a different colour. I’m regularly confusing the two sets of players here, especially on the wide camera angles.


#2339

What’s the reasoning behind this :sweat:


#2340

That Stander lad is alright


#2341

Me too. I keep thinking Bundee Aki isn’t Irish.


#2342

No idea, but I think our home kit would nearly stand out better.

I can’t think of any other team we play that requires us to change our kit.


#2343

The quota rules are killing South African rugby. If lads are not good enough, they should not be picked. That was an appalling missed try.
