General discussion / Re: The IRISH RUGBY thread

So we are still letting flights land from affected regions but are recommending calling of the game.

We really are a bunch of imbeciles in this country sometimes  :o

I'd say commercial and air travel is of a higher priority than a glorified challenge match somehow.

I think the point is why call off the match if you're still going to let a few thousand Italians into the country that weekend anyway??!!

And anyway isn't all sport just a glorified challenge match??

If the match is called off, then there be would be no or much less reason for Italians to travel to the country. Quite a few sporting events in Italy have been cancelled and a number of Serie A matches are being played behind closed doors. In this light, it would look rather strange for the rugby match not to be (potentially) affected.

I don't think the powers-that-be would make such a decision lightly or without taking on board good advice. We're not as imbecilic in this country as you think.

If I've booked to go somewhere foreign along with hotels and the event I planned on seeing is called off you can bet I'm still going!!

What the f**k did she do to warrant that???!!!!

I worry for the calibre of teacher that's coming through if they think it's necessary to arrest a 6 year old jesus f**k I can't get my head around that at all.

So Utd lose £70m last season... are £400m in debt... but they will qualify for the CL in 5th place because City who have no debt are banned???

It's a funny old game!!

Sounds like a possible outbreak in Bray!

After whatís going on in Italy thereís no way the rugby is going ahead unless itís later behind closed doors or something... interesting point from IRFU though are Ireland not accepting flights from Italy now??

Coronavirus could throw a massive spanner into all this.

Posted in other thread - KA flight attendant on an A380 into LA has come down with the virus.


Assuming that its broke out and loose in the US - then the healthcare system is about to come under massive pressure. The sitting president (rightly or wrongly) gets undue blame for current affairs. Donald wanted to dismantle Obamacare and Bernie is a strong campaigner on healthcare.

Could be the storm that break's The Donald's back.

But Trump saw this coming before anyone and did the travel closings so . . .

Anyone done Centre Parcs in Longford yet?

It's been covered a few times but the main points are it's brilliant but expensive.

Bring your own bikes, don't eat out too often and spend a lot of time in the pool which is brilliant anyway.

Jones had to apologise for his "If it were a cricket match we could have declared at half time comment"

Madness he was 100% right!!

Any Board members here like Reed?

Who is his GAA playing equivalent?

Anyone from Tyrone
