I must admit that you have either a HUGE sense of humor or a HUGE imagination :lol2tn:O Jeeeeez - BOD's hamstring, that's all we need. Now we'll definitely go out against the ABs.

One defeat against Argentina wasn't enough?<div class='quotemain'>
Hello Next Sunday All French Will Be Irish!!! Com'on Ireland
You got to admire his optimism. Again though, about 20 mins before kick off, I'll be positive we'll win by about 60 points.
NO SOLO ESO, LE TENGOFE PARA HACERLE FRENTE A SUDAFRICAGo Pumas!! We need to win this to take the Scottish or Italians and dream with the semi-finals!!!
Definitely. It will be a huge boost for World Rugby, especially for Argentina (they were my no. 3 team to support). I'm a little excited about the Puma's chances to fight their way through to a semi-final spot. It would be more exciting to see the near-coming 2008 4-nations teams (ARG, SA, AUS and NZ) fighting it out at that stage of the competition.I went into this tournament with Ireland as my no. 2 team to support (after Australia)...
But now I really want Argentina to beat Ireland and finish first...
I just think it would be great for the game... [/b]
Horgan won't have any problems with the garryowens from Hernandez, he's rock solid under high ball and in no way near being the weakest link in the Irish team, in fact he'd be one of the first names on the team sheet.Why didnÂ´t Hickie didnÂ´t play IrelandÂ´s last game? I think he should be starting against Argentina, since he is really secure with high balls, and his kick is great for a wing. On the other hand, I think Horgan is going to have a LOT of trouble with Hernandez kicks, if he plays, wich I think he shouldnÂ´t (heÂ´s, for me, the weakest link in IrelandÂ´s team)

Best and Flannery not put in place just yet due to injury concerns...
Nice to see we have packed the backline with all our strike runners.
Still an odd bench though. Would have thought he'd stick in Strings for Boss. And now dropping Dempsey completely?? weird.
