Wales avenge heavy loss by beating Ireland in Dublin RWC warmup

Haha. Well, strange things can happen in each of the games, so never say never.

I think people just worry about getting served up humble pie... I mean the NZ'ers on the site are not overly loud about their chances, the rest of the world feels that they're going to do well. I suppose on paper one would assume that the kiwis will win it, but you never know.

Tapper and brannigan, many thanks for the low down on the game. I find RD tends to produce quite well rounded fans who aren't in the clouds much like soccer fans apparently are, so I find getting feedback from fans almost provides a good insight into how teams are performing. If anything, rugby fans tend to be overly humble about their own teams.

Good job :)

So going into this, there was talk about Ireland making the quarters or semis and Wales not making it out of the group....

...What now?

I managed to miss all the matches this weekend, so I don't really know what to take (if anything) from any of them. Lucky Wales? Unlucky Ireland? Welsh still rocked? Irish still confident?

Mass Brawl between Perpignan and Carcassonne in French second division

"The fight was reminiscent of the 'old days', as various little pods developed and just when it seemed to be cooling off, another player would throw a sneaky punch."

I'm sorry, but this is extremely offensive. France has NEVER had a history of foul play, especially no more than any other team. In fact, French D2 teams have probably had less punches thrown in it's entire history than chess has in the last chess world cup.

I agree with you regarding Clark. I did mention that "done his time" could be one way of viewing the whole scene, however you still have to look at it from his point of view, he was given a shit ban, served the shit ban then went back to the career which he is 'pretty good at' (In the sense that he is wearing an England shirt)...

I do agree though, that video is horrific, to see the nature in what he did and how there is simply no extenuating circumstances (or some sort of crappy cobbled together reason) - Losing your head is one thing, but that didn't look like a heat of the moment snap at someone, that was something else far nastier.
