Ferris is an awful example of the danger of head injuries in sport

The IRFU doing what it takes to hold onto their man


#2811

The rubby crowd have been pulling their thick sons into jobs for decades.


#2812

Yorkie boys. Thick but rich.


#2813

The small financial services industry in limerick was riddled with it. Could not buy a house, get the loan or insure it without meeting a rugby head.
I recall Keith Wood spent a couple of years at the counter in the Irish permanent on o’connelly st, back in the days when he had hair before taking rugby seriously.

Clever ad.

That’s a class backing tune too.


#2816

Clever?

No darkies or foreigners - All white middle class Irish names.

What about the Bundis and other foreign chaps that want to move here for two years and then represent their country?

#2818

Well its Tadhg Furlong, Rory Best, Tiernan O’Halloran and Conor Murray, a player from each of the 4 provinces. I suppose the chances that a player on the Irish team will have an Irish name are a bit elevated.

I couldnt tell you who they are , mate … why didnt they have a South African baby or a NZ baby? - Are you telling all those black babies born outside of Ireland to bury their dream of some day putting on the green jersey and singing Ireland’s call?


#2820

You’re trying too hard.


#2821

That’s fairly mild, pal… i can go up another 5 / 6 notches easily.


#2822

Sure as long as you’re keeping yourself entertained then plug away. It’s all a bit harmless

Cracking game between Leinster and Glasgow on TG4 YouTube. 7 tries after 45 mins. 31-21 to Glasgow


#2824

South Africa Rugby confirm Johann van Graan will take up his role as Munster’s new head coach on 20 November.


#2825

Hes been in ireland for weeks I believe. Just waiting on work permit to come through


#2826

I would have thought a few weeks was ample time to qualify for an Irish rugby passport.


#2827
