    I'd be pleasantly surprised if we managed to edge out Engand as well.

    Ireand seem to be doing a number on Argentina (who fiddled us in the pool).

    Well, there is hope while we're in it. I just don't think our forwards are as good as in past years and I don't think the few classy players we have are enough to make up for that and our poorish defense. On the bright side we can always blame quotas and the ref.

    We always play awful in semifinals:

    2007 WC - massacred by SA
    2012 U20 WC - massacred by SA again
    2015 WC - awful game vs AUS

    And now this rubbish. BTW In all cases we suffered at least one interception try lol

    Leinster's pack in 3-4 years is going to be sweet if this is anything to go by. Deegan, Ryan and Porter are hot.

    Lineout went well enough a few mins ago,
    Walker was poor in the lineout last game and doesn't hook, so it's not like he's a shining example.

    If I was Les Kiss I'd be offering Deegan a full pro contract.

    In what way? looked to me like he landed on his head; so a red card, regardless of intent (AKA shut up Dewi).

    Good for the game and the spectacle; but poor application of the law (unless I missed an angle whilst sorting the BBQ).

    I don't disregard intent in virtually any situation.

    Boyce playing really well.

    But the laws do; the point being to take that decision out of the ref's hands.
    I agree that the law is an arse; but it's still the law.

    I'm not contesting that, just that I was happy with the decision... haven't watched it back though, so maybe I'd feel differently if I did.

    Could the ref have given both yellows?
