Wales had the winning of that game. They had a try disallowed by the tmo that should have been given. They will be a tough opponent for Ireland.

A good performance from Ireland so far. However the injuries to Furlong and Henshaw are a big blow to the team.

Schmidt is a great coach. His biggest problem imho is he is a foreigner and not from one of the provinces. We had a great coach before in Gatland and got rid of him for no good reason. That was a big loss for Ireland and a big gain for Wales and the Lions.

Now the owner who can't play, coach or pick players gets the trophy. Only in America :-[

Sure God and Jesus Christ won it for them, why would a player get it?

Now, moving on, who's going to pay Foles 100+ million?

It seems I spoke too soon. There was no presentation to the owner this year. It was a bit of a mess. Where was Goodell to make the presentation? Pederson just picked up the trophy.

The Eagles have a touchdown here but they would maybe have been better off with a first down. Then three runs and a field goal to take time off the clock. ???

The Pats are ahead by one but they are struggling to stop the Eagles all day long.

A good game so far. It could still go either way as the Pats will get the ball first in the second half. Gronk needs to get in the game.

Amazes me that if we lost that game people who have revelled in it.

Shit conditions. Shit game. Some finish. Clutch player.

The drop goal glosses over the fact that Ireland were muck against a French side there to be taken.

What amazes me is that people’s doe-eye view of Irish rugby is such that rugby by numbers is so gleefully exalted whilst the soccer teams tactics take such a hammering. People can stick the boot in gaa teams playing unentertaining fare but the rugger lads can get away with murder so long as they win.

WTF. Where were all the tries? We should be beating France out the gate at this stage. We are so superior to the French. I would have bagged a hat trick of tries if I was playing.

Or maybe Ireland are a good team playing to near the best of their ability who beat an average French team playing to the best of their ability in Paris. I don't think either team had a bag full of tries in them on a day like today.

Ireland should be too good for the French today. The French are very inexperienced.

General discussion / Re: woman dies for want of a abortion
« on: January 30, 2018, 11:37:49 PM »
I see two distinct groups but I'm wondering if there is another one.

The first are those who are pro-life for reasons linked to religious teachings. The second are those that think that the decision to have an abortion should ultimately lie with the woman that is pregnant.

Do any of you fall into any other category?

I don't care what the church has to say on this matter, I am against abortion. If the church came out tomorrow and said it was pro abortion I would be against them. It just doesn't sit well with me. Abortion is a tool of the nazis who banned abortion for aryan women and encouraged it for non aryan women and those it considered inferior.

A chance to get revenge against Denmark and a chance for Wales to get revenge against us. When does it all kick off?
