It’s a joke plain and simple, if we had no Johnny Foreigner willing to play for us and the English were awash with them then you’d all have a f**king different tune. Just because a few can rumble about it seems to make it alright.

I wonder was this how the French reacted when the top 14 employed the legion of mercenaries and decimated their national rugby team.

French Rugby has been shîte for longer than they’ve been throwing around big money. Same goes for England.

I don't know how lads can justify this stuff, rugby or soccer. The rugby situation is a complete joke but a lot of the 'emigrant nation' dresses up us digging up some faint Irish connection to get an England B player to tog for us. For me it's quite simple, an Irish international (team or individual) should be Irish. That means they could be born in a different country but should identify as Irish as opposed to using it for international recognition. Living here a few years doesn't make you Irish no more than I'll ever be British though I've lived here for a while now so that residency rule is rubbish. For lads who want to win no matter the make up of our teams, why not just go the whole hog and have transfers like clubs?

Bit like Meathman Dean Rock playing for your Dubs, eh?

I'm guessing nobody on here was following Ireland in the RLWC?

Games were hard to find bbc seemed to give the irish ones a miss. Saw some of the png game on premier sports online so was gutted when they lost knowing that was that. Shame as they win 2 and go out and samoa draw one and progress a bit if a farce all round

I think BBC have only shown English games so far.
It was a shame but hopefully it gives Ireland something to build on RL wise

The lad interviewed on the Sunday mornings highlights program had the same Irish accent as Simon Geoghegan had back in the day.

The French had kept their counsel after the independent assessment came out. Ireland had burnt a few bridges crying foul about the process.

Another world cup in France, very uninspiring.
