Think they looked at the pairc while it was still under construction. They can only put in what they see at the actual time of inspection. When you look at some of the grounds used in past rugby wc the pairc is well up to scratch. There were grassy slopes at some of nz grounds in 2011.
Rugby journalists on the news saying if we threw a few more million at it and a bit more swagger. Me hole.
If they did that in this country there would have been blue murder.
The irony of Unionist state mechanism costing the rugby world cup…
Drico ( who I like but envy his cushie lifestyle ) would have had some 6 years as head mascot if we won
Apparently puc wasn’t up to scratch & is shifting some of the blame .Locals best not pleased .Win win situation for Frank . Got his funding & doesn’t have to worry about foreign games been played there .
Not sure how it can’t be up to scratch? Unless it is terraces they have a problem with, which can’t be news to anyone involved in the bid surely?
Well there is that. Poshest gaa stadium outside Croke Park.
Yep , apparently have to be all seater from the quarters onwards .
Rugby blazers taking tips from FIFA . You shouldn’t need to rebuild a country to host a tournament for a few weeks . Apparently lack of wi fi in fitz stadium was another issue( sure could nt they buy a few dongles !!!). Might have been a bit of craic for a few weeks but I ll get over very quickly.
Amazing the arrogance and self praising nature of Irish rugby journalism again …" Ours to lose "… " Spine chilling videos "… Bla bla bla … Exactly same as they build the national team every year n World Cup only to fail miserably … Someone really needs to call Irish rugby out on so many fronts …
Agree - Videos with Liam Neeson, Bono and/or Bob ain’t where it’s at …
the only team in this country that gets a pass every time they ■■■■ up.
oh yeah. them and Mayo.
We Irish love a loser alright, and hate success
Pretty sure the soccer lads get a pass
But only when Wes is playing…
Id actually be very happy if we don’t get it.
They do in their hole. Look at the pasting they got post Georgia and Serbia.
Money talks, the country that guarantee the biggest wedge to the IRB wins!
Assessments are then made of facilities in order to prove this was the correct decision.
egg chasing… ask me bollix
