    Why did Ireland get drawn into by far the hardest pool for the World Cup :eek:

    France
    Ireland
    Argentina
    Georgia
    Namibia


    Now considering that you'd think that okay if we beat Argentina we we'll be alright but if we finished second we play the winner of Pool C.

    Here's Pool C

    New Zealand
    Scotland
    Italy
    Romania
    Repechage 1


    So if Ireland finish second in there group we get to play New Zealand in the quarters...:eek:

    Meanwhile the likes of Wales if they finish second will get England or South Africa....

    Soooooooooo not fair!!!;)

    We have to beat France, Argentina and if we manage to keep form against the rest(we should do) one slip we get NZ, what a joke.

    Who do England get, Wales or something, system needs a rethink if this is the case

    WC seeds are based on the last WC.

    The Argentines are going to be tough to beat. Yesterday would be almost worth if Ireland and Argentina finish first and second respectively. Gallic pride would take such a dent the French would have to increase their exports of cheese and wine to the world.

    We'll top that group. I'm willing to bet 100's on it. We'll top that group, we'll beat England by 20 points, and we'll beat France in France next year. We're too good for what happened yesterday. There's emotion in what I'm saying, but there's also fact. The players in green that were on that pitch yesterday (and the ones in the stand), will take that French try to the grave. Every day they will think of it. Anger is a great motivator. Watch this space.....
