    No there not. France by a big score and 4 tries. 30 odd points


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,320 ✭✭✭✭ lawred2


    Is it as simple as a seven point win?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Don't like how much the commentators on Virgin afe writing off Frances chances of winning the title.

    They need a TBP win of 31 points or more. Their biggest winning margin so far this year has been 13 points, with the 38 points last week being their largest points haul so far this year. Its not impossible that they do it, but it is incredibly unlikely. They are effectively out of it.

    La Marseillaise is the best national anthem. But it's really nothing without fans in the stadium to belt it out.

    Great steal from Doris.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Go for points from inside our own half?

    Jaysus.

    Points clearly the main focus here with this tactic, not a bad attempt in fairness

    He was never going to make that in a million years. Idiotic.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,597 ✭✭✭✭ Beechwoodspark


    Oh ffs


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,035 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Miserably soft. Porter got burned completely


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,604 ✭✭✭ dublinman1990


    Aaaahhh......bad start for us.

    Oh Ireland please don't waste the opportunity to win the championship tonight. We need you to do well here. It is literally the most easiest big win that you could ever asked for given to you at the last minute. That job is even more significant now within a global pandemic that has f*cked the world so many times over most of the current year. A simple try or two could win it for us lads. C'mon Ireland. Do us proud!

    He has the distance and was barely wide - no harm in going for it

    It was some wallop. Though I wouldn’t put any money on him in the last 10 minutes.

    Bastard try BTW


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Fickou beat Porter and a corner flagging Murray.

    Absolutely not their faults. Damage was done by the defensive push inside them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,079 ✭✭✭✭ tayto lover


    Like a knife through butter. Not a hand laid on him.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,254 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Gonna be picky and say Stockdale should've properly hit Dupont as he was going over the line. Let him run further to get an easier kick in goal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    French player that batted the ball back in stepped in touch first then landed out of touch as well.
    Lineout Ireland.

    Obviously there was harm as France scored a try from it


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭ champchamp


    Why do they keep saying that we have to win by 13?

    Looked fine to me, would need to see a replay.
