    I have to say Rory is a right scamp for side entry on the clearout!

    Was that not a shoulder to the back of Healy's head

    Lucky penalty.......v careless by Retallick. Great work and great discipline by Ireland.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,246 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    Oooh...that was good for us. We take that penalty. Thank you NZ.

    I am with you the Haka is something to watch and be a sad day if it is ever banned


    Am not for banning it. Am all for letting their opponents do something similar. (A few minutes of Riverdance buck leppin' about the place anyone? :P ) In the interests of fairness. However, World Rugby are far too in awe of the All Black mystique to ever let that happen.

    Fabulous start.

    Its not an anthem. It deserves no respect.

    How about penalty kicks time to jeer and scream on them


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,246 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    Henshaw is in the seats watching the match.

    If there was any doubt, there is none now, our boys are up for this!

    The haka is an attempt to intimidate the other team, it is entirely reasonable to respond.

    Booing penalties is a totally different matter.

    O'Mahony taking on a lot of ball. Don't think Best has missed a breakdown yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,180 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Toner just killed Retallick.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,073 ✭✭✭✭vienne86


    POM, please be OK.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,080 ✭✭✭A-Train


    Go on Big Dev


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,246 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    Great turnover by Ireland there. Brilliant. POM getting seen to by medics.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,868 ✭✭✭Rigor Mortis


    Good man Dev and great support from Ryan

    Looked like it. There has already been some very borderline stuff on behalf of New Zealand that Barnes has not pinged which is disappointing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,132 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Dense fron Best and Stockdale.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,054 ✭✭✭Cypher_sounds


    First bad decision.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,080 ✭✭✭A-Train


    Too easy on the turn over.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,798 ✭✭✭Mr. Incognito


    Rory Best is the weak link


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭[Deleted User]


    Don't see how both sides aren't going to be gassed at 30 minutes. This is INSANE.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,054 ✭✭✭Cypher_sounds


    Beautiful kick.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,725 ✭✭✭lalababa

    Surprising seeing Barnes is ref, but I'm sure he'll revert to type before long.

    This. No need to ban it but it's the most blatant gamesmanship permitted in any sport.

    A spot of Riverdance or (insert appropriate cultural item) should be permitted in retort.
