I defer to your knowledge of the game Leo, I only take a passing interest. It just seems odd that a nation which has never won a knockout World Cup game could seriously be considered one of the best teams in the world.

Furthermore it's odd that they would celebrate upon failing to win a tournament where Australia, New Zealand and South Africa didn't even participate.Maybe everyone was delighted with finishing level on points with Scotland?
Are you saying that if Derry beat Tyrone in the league it wouldn't elicit a sense of satisfaction, even though Derry would not win the All Ireland?

I couldn't care less if Derry won the League, it's a complete irrelevance of a competition.

And it's not at all like the situation yesterday, where England were awarded the Six Nations Title at the end of the game and Irish people were giddily celebrating.

England would have won with Ronaldo. Fellas like Mike Brown and Hartley aren't fit to polish his jockstrap.

I'm quite happy tbh. I just don't value the League as a competition, and am puzzled by the wild celebrations from Irish people after yesterday's rugby.

I don't think you are tbh, crowd out watching the match yesterday and it wasn't wild celebrations just celebrating Ireland winning... don't come on a thread that annoys you to get annoyed!!

Have you always been an attention seeker? I get why kids seek attention but I assume you're an adult

I'm not annoyed at all. Im not seeking attention either, just attempting to understand the curious Irish celebrations.

However if you genuinely feel I am merely seeking attention please feel free to ignore my posts like others do.

Never so glad to see such an odious little p***k knock on at the end, karma.

As for Sexton, he does get a lot of dirty tackles where the arms aren't used, twice yesterday but in fairness to him he keeps getting wired in and was instrumental in a few turn overs.

Still think Ireland have a weakness scoring tries other than from rolling mauls.

It's not that difficult to understand the reasons for the celebration:

1. It was the English

2. Winning a proper test against the team ranked the best in the NH going for the Slam and a world record

3. Ireland played to their potential

4. Circumstances caused JS to pick almost his best team, we were proved right (all outside Dublin 4)

5. Eddie Jones

6. It was the English, Mike Brown, James Haskell, Dan Cole, Dylan Hartley, Owen Farrell, Ben Youngs, Danny Care, Joe Marler

You have nothing positive about any of your posts...

You're that miserable fecker who stands in the corner of the pub that no one talks to cause you'll grind them down with your depressive views

It will continue with a JS back three of Earls, Kearney and Zebo - not at the pace and strength now needed from try scoring backs.

It's completely inaccurate to say I never post anything positive. For example I posted several positive things about Ronaldo only a few days ago. Apology accepted in advance.

Do positive things cause enjoyment for you? Or is it negative things? If both which gives you more enjoyment?
