You’re like a parrot. You’re so bereft of any rugby knowledge or insight, you’ve repeated the same line in at least three different posts this morning. Tradition is important in any sport or indeed any walk of life, but sport is not a slave to tradition. How do you explain the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series after a losing tradition of 108 years, the Tyrone footballers winning the All Ireland in 2003 after a losing tradition of 116 years stretching back to the inaugural championship of 1887?
Good players and a good coach are the most important ingredients to winning in any sport. I have stated that I believe Ireland can win the World Cup in 2019 as we tick both those boxes.
Having lost the argument you’re doing your usual throwing the toys out of the pram routine and resorting to personal insults - the last vestiges of a beaten docket. For a fairly unremarkable statement that Ireland have a terrific group of players and an outstanding coach, I’m accused of a flip flop moment and having reneged on your principles and ideology.
Your anti-rugby hatred is just consuming you. A soccer type calling the Ireland rugby team West Brits.
