Ouch.
Yeah, we out-played them in every position yesterday.

First time in the Aviva yesterday, unreal experience.

Game was terrific, Earls finished off what was a very good tournament for him I felt, I also think Trimble is a better option that Fitzgerald to have on the win.

Most popular sports in England are association football, cricket and rugby union, None of which England are any where close to being the best at.
Tis you should take the blinkers off.

Scatter always looking for an argument.
If I was really looking for an argument I would be following you into your west brit soccer threads and shitting all over them.

Maybe later.

Spot on man.
England always look good when they compare themselves to small nations!

Why couldn't we have played like that in the other 4 games though. Still a lot of questions need to be answered before september.

Poor 6 nations all told though, France are in dissarray, Lievremont has to go. Its a tragedy that a team with as much quality as the french are playing as poorly as they are.

Australia and NZ won't be quaking in their boots at any of the teams heading south.
Turned out to be a good decision to start Sexton. If he wants to give ROG and Sexton game time then ROG is a better option coming on, particularly if we are winning.

Poor decison to bring Court on for Ross but most teams don't give props 80 mins.

There are a lot of guys coming to the end of their international careers having given outstanding service :- POC, Donncha, ROG, Strings, Wallace, BOD, Darcy - all these guys stepped up to the plate again and hopefully they can have a good world cup.

There is some great new talent coming through in O Brien, Healy, Sexton, Earls, Bowe etc

Irish rugby has had a golden era at both Int and Club level - let's hope it continues

Let's see now.

Cricket - WC Quarter-finalists, current World T20 champions, winners of the last two Ashes series.

Rugby - Current Six Nations Champions, last two WC finalists and one WC winners.

Football - the English Premier League is the most popular football league in the world watched in more countries than any other.
Especially in Ireland.

Ah jaysus anvil. Poor effort. Compare like with like willya, for the love of vishnu. You can't give facts on success for the first two and then lash into popularity of the sky sports product in the last. You could have mentioned consistent performance in the champions league at least.
