Jesus the amount of halfwits online would amaze you with this geoblocking saga ... itís Croke Parkís fault for selling the rights to Sky apparently!!

If you tried to explain it to them their heads might explode!!

Sky donít have the rights for champions league games but they get blocked too

Yes because BT hold the rights to show CL games in the UK... RT… even though available in the UK have to have these geoblocked as well as they are only allowed to show these games in Ireland.

The issue is that the geoblocking ďdepartmentĒ went home before the Sunday Game so forgot to turn it back on again after the WC had finished.

By claiming rugby as the national sport (again) he is simply trying to keep his name in the headlines. Francis is not the worst pundit, at least he gives his opinion but I think he is deliberately trying to wind people up on this issue knowing that he will get a reaction.

The amount of media coverage that an end of season series junket with very little meaning attracts is mystifying.   

You don't understand test rugby if you think get hammered in contact by professional sports men with an average weight of 100kg is a junket. It's fair to say also you don't understand professional rugby or indeed the cultural significance around test rugby period if you think a test win has little meaning.

You're probably right, I don't understand it then.

Die hard rugby followers might understand it but I would hazard a guess that there are an awful lot of 'event junkies' in the country who purely tune in for big Heineken Cup and 6 nations matches and do not really follow the sport outside of those occasions. I would classify myself amongst them but for Neil Francis to claim it as the national sport because of this is just for wind up purposes and I doubt if he genuinely believes his own assertion.

If you get a chance to watch that last Ireland Australia game again you should. . . it was played far from Friendly pace and the hits involved don't seem like they were from lads who were out in Australia just having a bit of craic!!

Francis is a mouthpiece and he's only saying this National Sport nonsense to get a reaction. Who really cares anyway?! Can we not watch both and enjoy them?!

I have Fleetwood backed at 33/1 came from nowhere

Same... need the wind to kick up then he has a real chance. I think the best he could hope for is a playoff but hard to see these lads not getting under par.

I know it is only halftime but you wonder wtf is Kevin Walsh doing tactically.  Shambles

I have good forwards, I have a very strong wind and ah sure letís play with 12 back behind the Ball.

Roscommon to their credit are playing very well and deserving of their lead.

Roscommon have 13 behind the ball on several occasions in that half as Marty pointed out. Their big problem is that Galway are not settled or composed inside and they're not marking tight enough in defence. Tactically there's no great difference in the two sides. Ros are finishing more clinically and making the right decisions on the ball.

12 and 13 at the back is fine but counts for nothing if you canít pressure the ball. Thatís Brollyís gripe with the zonal defence and he does have a point. Roscommon have played well in the eat half will be interesting to see what changes in the second half of anything!

Brolly was full of shit. He said Ros were playing like Kerry and had his usual personal attack on individuals, only Gooch tried to analyse the game. Colm got in his "ah it wasn't like this in my day" routine so he'll collect the paycheck for another week.

Heís wrong about plenty but his point about the zonal defence and Galway not putting any pressure on the ball carrier was bang on. The personal attacks are a bit much I agree.

They shouldnít be letting Fox near coverage for the US Open as well.

Every year they have cameras panning around with no idea where the ball is. NBC know what theyíre at let them have it!

Surely the conditions are the same for everybody, 4 putting or going +10 is pretty poor regardless for some of these top golfers?

On a normal weekend it is but it's happened all over the show yesterday to the top guys so it can't just be a coincidence.

It didnít to DJ

Indeed...

Heís the only one though... heís playing some stuff very hard to look past him at this stage although the course looks to be getting a bit easier for the afternoon session.

Ten Armagh U20s suspended for their Ulster Final meeting with Derry on June 24th

Free the Armagh 10.

Remember the same thing happening in the MacRory final in 1996 after Maghera started a crazy row against poor St. Mary's who had played all the football on the day . . . I think they had 7 players suspended and it ultimately cost them the Hogan Cup that year.
Your memory is playing tricks on you SE.  Maghera had the game won, and the convent weren't happy with that.  The Convent were the only side to have a man sent off!!
In fairness, the Ulster Council/Colleges had a field day trying to hand out suspensions left, right and centre, to both teams.  From memory they tried to suspend lads from Maghera, that weren't even in the melee, but had been involved in incidents earlier in the game, where lads were booked by the ref.  They also went for the spine of the side. So the only 3 from Maghera that were actually given suspensions, were Niall Farren - Full Back, John Heaney - Centre Half Back and Paul Wilson - Midfield.

It'll be the same in this instance - They've gone for the scattergun approach to the suspensions, but I'd say 3 at most will suspended for the final.

Fake news!!! Sure how could lads who go to a school called "the convent" ever do anything wrong?!
