I would agree with Hound dog right up until I come across the first Jock, Taff or Lionel giving it large.

Why has the Ireland Wales game been moved from Queens to ravenhill?

Tournament devalued by that imo

Far as I know, that was always the plan, but you're right. Very unfair on Canada and Australia who both earned the right to play at Ravenhill in front of the finals crowd.

Maybe some of the girls in the final could teach us how to hit in the tackle...

I watched a very awkward interview and it appears a team member had told the media he lost the dressing room.

He can take his sidekick Anthony Eddie with him

Woops hadn't noticed you had already published that article.
It has been a fiasco since those pair took over, some promising young ones packed the whole thing in over the way it was going.

Tom Tierney has resigned as Ireland's head coach following their disappointing performance at the Women's Rugby World Cup.

Tierney told RTÉ that his final game as coach would be the 7th Place Final defeat to Wales. He was appointed head coach after the 2014 World Cup, where the team finished in fourth place.

"I've had three great years. I'm very, very proud of what I've done," he said.
"It wasn't an easy job coming into. We've brought through a lot of good players, and players who can play international rugby. Unfortunately, we don't have enough yet.

"I suppose, where we are now is pretty much where we deserve to be, from a quality level.

"Very pleased with my three years, and it's on to something different now."

Ireland did not have a great tournament on home ground and Tierney has taken a lot of the blame for this.

His predecessor Phillip Doyle and Ireland prop Ruth O'Reilly both said he did not prepare the team well for this tournament.

Tierney will take up an as yet unknown role within the IRFU.
