NZ may be flattered by poor form of AU and SA I agree but England are still away off Ireland I think but neither stand up a full 80 mins and thats the benchmark really

Who won the Grand Slam this year?

Who won 3-0 away in Australia?

Who is 11-0?

What team lost a series against an appaling team who have just lost to Italy?

These are facts, people.

Maybe you should try a different sport.

That's with a squad who are 10 shy of the 30 who went to Australia.

Ireland couldn't defeat a sub par south Africa so they certainly wouldn't have got a result in Australia. They are basically still a one result outfit.

And Australia 2 points up at half time.

I really should have put a bet down on today.

Some thought South Africa would beat Italy by 20.

And now they are heading off to China Whites to lear at someone 30 years their junior.

Nope. World Rugby exists. The IRB no longer does. You really are a buffoon.


Outspan, when I married my wife she changed her surname to mine. She still exists. Surely even you can grasp so simple a concept?

The scoreline flattered Ireland

Barrett was the difference.


World player of the year-who could have guessed
It was great to watch the best two teams in the world playing in different matches but such a shame that they don't play each other until next year


Fixed that for you
Look at Iolar getting carried away with the first ever defeat of the ABs, after 116 years of trying.


Carried away! I was entirely insouciant, moron.


IIRC England are the only NH team to beat the ABs twice in a row and that is not going to change

A good, tough test match, but too much post match whinging from the Irish. If Barrett didn't ground the ball (he did), it would have been a penalty try for the tackle around the head anyway.
Wyatt Crockett extended his world record to 46 consecutive test match wins.

Who's whinging? The better team won. Ireland were poor in the NZ twenty-two. You can't expect to beat New Zealand without scoring tries.

Barrett didn't ground it and he essentially admitted so in a post match interview, but the try was awarded so you just have to accept it. It's a little bit rich to be moaning about a high tackle - the AB's played and tackled very cynically. I don't have a problem with that - it's one of the reasons that they are the best team in the world. Nice guys don't win and it's an approach that Ireland should implement.

NZ also got away with throwing a forward pass which led to a try. The idiotic referee choose not to review it despite a legitimate request from the Irish Captain. At least two tries were dubious. It was a poor call and right on the heels of another bad call last week. Southern Hem officials? When the Aussies or kiwis are on the wrong end of a bad decision you will never hear the end of it. NZ were pretty tasty behind the scrum but they are pretty average elsewhere. i don't think they are all that.

was BOD in the sky commentary team? i think he was, im sure hes a good guy but fuck me does a bleat on.

the all blacks made some bad tackles but shit happens in test rugby im not sure they were intentional but the irish dish out the filth as well as anyone.

barrets try was reviewed and called at the time so his uncertainty has no bearing.

So what have we got now then, when the dust has nearly settled?

At the moment, I'd go...

1. AB's
2. England
3. Australia
4. Ireland
5. France
6. Saffers
7. Wales
8. Scotland
9. Italy
10. Arggies

I'd put the Argies at 8, Northern teams should tour there more, they grow another leg at home.
Harry, give an example of never hearing the end of it from Kiwis this year, or have they not received a single bad call?

The TMO official said that he did and so did the scoreboard. But don't expect truth or facts from Outspan.

Well, England have beaten Ireland 6 out of the last 7 meetings.

Four times at home, twice away.

Including this year, as part of the Grand Slam.

No need to get involved with iolaR's living on past glories, or Jethro's schtick.

He was interviewed on Irish TV immediately after the match had ended in which he essentially (being the operative word), not literally, admitted that the ball was not grounded. I imagine that on reflection he decided that it was better to be a bit more emphatic in subsequent interviews. I also said that the try was awarded, so you just have to get on with it. And I have already stated that the best team won. The only person whinging about anything related to the match is you.

England also failed to qualify from their group on home soil in last year's world cup. England scraped past a lacklustre Ireland in the 6 Nations this year. If they were playing tomorrow, Ireland would destroy Ingerland, despite what you insular Little Ingerlanders believe. No doubt about it.

You morons simply get carried away. You were full of it during the RWC, too. How easily you forget! I suppose that's what happens when you've a collective double digit IQ.

I told you Iolar was getting carried away!!!

England are vastly superior to Ireland right now. England's current winning streak is 12 from 12. Including a whitewash of Aus away and a Gramd Slam.

Ireland will never ever ever achieve that sort of run. Never ever.

And yet England should better it by making it 14/14 with a win over the Crims a week Saturday.

What facts? The fact that you lot were simply showing up to win the RWC and ended in humiliation? That fact?
