Its a team which gives Italy a chance but the Back Row and Back Three should give Ireland the edge .

Carberry will be playing Shuffle Ball to get it to Lamour ,Stockdale , and Conway

November test matches

Postby rumncoke » Sat Nov 03, 2018 11:54 pm

wasn't impressed by Joey's contribution forget the place kicking -- his kicking from hand was terrible and distribution mechanical
on his first delayed pass he nearly got killed .

England got out of jail free with Farrell's high and dangerous "tackle" at the end.

Should have been at least a penalty in front of the posts, and you could debate to the cows come home what colour of card as the shoulder appeared to hit the head.

When former England players are saying as much, and even Matt Dawson says if the position had been reversed, England would have been demanding a penalty, you know they've been lucky.

We've seen them given in the current climate, but ...

to me he hit the arms and ball around the nipple line. Not convincingly high.

It looked like there was an attempted wrap, but it was the fend by the South African which prevented it from completing.

Stupidity from Farrell to cut things that fine though.

Now I didn't see the game but I'll assume from this that Joey played fairly well.

Heard Larmour was pretty snazzy but up against feck all as Italy unsurprisingly were a pile of sh1te.

Sometimes it is better to use more letters than fewer. >EW

For a West Englander, you should make better use of the English language, Shan. :lol:


Away and boil yer head. Us West English shall use our wonderful language any way we please. We have nothing to prove. As a wise man said "to be born an Englishman is to have won the lottery of life". Same applies to West English.

Ref called it correctly. I say that without even needing to see the incident. Gwan England. :D :D

I called it the other way without the need to see the incident ...it was Farrell we're talking about, right? :lol:

Then having seen it, it just confirmed tome what a nasty, stupid (albeit I will admit, talented) so-and-so he really is.

Saffa win shoulda been a cert.

If you penalise Farrell in a 50:50 call, you'll be correct most of the time.
