Sexton and Seanie won’t be travelling anywhere in four years bar to the local rehab centre.

We will have surely invented giant robots to crash into each other by 2021 and can do away with this altogether?

Do Goldman Sachs ever engage in sponsorship of sports ??

I think they were an associate sponsor (not title sponsor) of the Dublin U-21 football and hurling championships in 2007.

They also sponsored Dublin City when Roddy Collins was manager, leading to the memorable headline on the Irish Sun: “City Sachs Collins”.

I think their name ties beautifully into sports sponsorship, to be fair, particularly Olympic sports.

Only the Olympics would be corrupt enough for those cunts.

Warren Gatland has ruled himself out of contention to coach the 2021 British Lions.

He was asked to excuse himself after his latest disgrace.

There are four lands that comprise the British Loins.

England, Scotland, Ireland and Gatland.

A great man who has served the noble, civilising cause, and wider British Isles rugby, so well.

A well deserved knighthood beckons.

Arise Sir Warren.

The greatest British Lions coach of all time?

No. Not even in the Top 3.

Stephen Jones of the London Times will be reeling when he hears this news.
@GeoffreyBoycott who would you rate as the greatest Lions coach?

Limerick’s own CJ and Marie are headed for the big smoke??

CJ doesn’t play for Leinster mate

Ooooft.

He really knows fuck all about sport

Shannon, Leinster :smile::smile::smile:

Owen farrell is typical overhyped English rugby player who’ll play by the numbers but plays with little imagination.
