    Never really watched a hockey game until Ireland v USA. Impressed with the skills. But very impressed with the pace. Constant movement. When a free was given it was taken in seconds unlike football. No dissent. (Why?) Great fitness levels required.

    Green cards, if the umpire blows for a free hit and the person who gave it away tries to stop it they are more than likely get a warning, but if they do it within the 23 they will get a green card which is 2 mins sin bin.

    Also with the free hit there is no need to wait until the opposing team is 5 yards away before taking it. You can take the free hit to yourself run and the opposing player can’t tackle you if they are with in 5 yards. Ball has to travel 5 yards before they can attempt a tackle. Rolling unlimited subs also help with the constant pace

    I see. But no arguing with the ref. No harraunging. That's good. No-one rolling around looking for frees. No simulation. All very refreshing.

    Who are the Brazil of world women's hockey? Who is the Ronaldo or Messi?


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,152 ✭✭✭✭citytillidie


    One player can speak to the ref at a time, does not have to be the captain. If more than one player comes to talk to the ref they run the risk of getting a green card. At this level each team also has one video review, but if they ask for a review and it is right they keep it again they have to ask a question for it that is yes no answer. If they ask for a review and it is wrong they lose it.

    Netherlands would be the favourites for this World Cup and keep an eye on Eva De Goede

    Ireland are the 1st team into the Quarter Finals after beating India today 1-0 and top their group as England only drew with USA last night

    I didn't even realise this was on till I saw about the result today. I thought the hockey forum here was mostly for the ice variation


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,152 ✭✭✭✭citytillidie


    Why not have it for both, since field hockey is played more here than Ice

    I watch ice hockey. Only time I've watched field hockey was at the Olympics. I forgot the game was on today. Will definitely watch the quarter final.

    Yeah it makes no sense how there is almost no field hockey discussion, considering it's much more popular here

    When will our QF be played? of course we have the dead rubber, for us, against the English before that.


  • Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 12,757 Mod ✭✭✭✭riffmongous


    Any good website for following it?

    A couple of years ago I put in a request for a split on the hockey to field and ice ( although to be fair in Ireland if you mention hockey people presume it’s field hockey ) I was turned down .. the hockey population is bigger than is realized in Ireland. Shame we haven’t a dedicated “field” hockey forum as the chat totally gets lost amongst the ice hockey threads

    Well capable of a semi final.
    Fingers crossed for the girls.


  • Registered Users Posts: 96 ✭✭Livefornow


    Brilliant performance by the team.
    World rankings make interesting reading for the semi-final make up. Germany (6th) and India (10th) are the only top ten teams on Ireland's side of the draw. Spain are 11th, Belgium 13th & Italy 17th.
    The other side has Netherlands (1st), England (2nd), Argentina (3rd), New Zealand (4th), Australia (5th) & Korea (9th). Good move not beating England today :)

    Isn't it a bit odd that we are likely going to be playing India again already?

    why was our game moved from 8.15 to 6pm?

    English organizers and England were expected to be playing at that time from the Pool stage so I am guessing they changed them around to have the England game as top billing

    RTE are jumping on the bandwagon and showing the game tomorrow at 5:45pm
