Ireland break drought to upset New Zealand for the first time ever

Absolutely a cracker of a match and Ireland 100% deserving. All Blacks were clearly off their game due to the Irish pressure; Murray, Sexton, Kearney were all fantastic, but I'm actually hard pressed to think of anyone in green that didn't have a solid game.

Joe Moody had a shocker, the ABs lineout was the worst I've ever seen (at least until they started throwing short in the second half), and missing several of their key locks really hurt them. All credit to Ireland though.

Feeling blessed that I live close enough to be there in person, what an historic week in Chicago! Really happy for all the Ireland fans.

Paul O'Connell comes up with one of the greatest ever sports quiz show answers

Awesome! Funny to see him counting the letters to see if the G sat in the right place.

5 AMAZING tries from the Aviva Premiership

Nor in the US. :(

Quade Cooper sinbinned for off the ball shoulder on Nicolas Sanchez

Ooooh, we were so close to having a comment thread that *doesn't* actually include an offhand insult to New Zealand! Top kek for doing it on a clip that had nothing to do with them too; very impressive.

Oh well, just keep trying I guess. ;-)

All Blacks too strong for error-ridden Springbok challenge in Christchurch

Interesting to see jersey "26" in your feature photo. I presume that Etzebeth post-jersey rip?

Taranaki lock produces best around the corner offload you're likely to see

Yawn. So an innocuous post on a sweet offload leads to rehashing the Franks incident? Mate, you're better than this, I think.

We get it, you're pissed about Franks getting no punishment, as would most rugby fans, and you're well justified to feel that way. But continuing to harp on it makes you sound like the old man telling the kids to get off his lawn. The Ugalde incident for Brive just a few days ago was just as bad, if not worse, but your only comments there had nothing to do with the question at hand, but snarky comments about NZ.

The citing process is broken, and you've had good comments about that before, but I think you're starting to see shadows where there are none.

Compilation of the unpunished Teboho Mohoje high tackles against Argentina

This is two games worth right? It's a shocking number of careless and dangerous tackles. What more does the citing commissioner need?

I would just add one other thought. Had this been the ABs, we would have undoubtedly heard the "All Blacks get all the breaks" crowd here. This is one example that shows it's closer to the truth that the tier one nations overall generally get the rub and not just NZ.

Best tries of Mitre 10 Cup - Round 2

I bet the announcers practiced saying "Fukofuka" a few times. Want to make sure you get that one right!
