Italy beat Ireland for the first time in the Six Nations with a stunning display as they won 22-15 at the Stadio Olimpico. More
Manager: Jacques Brunel
Manager: Declan Kidney
So Italy beat Ireland for the first time.Ireland are very unlucky with all their key players out injured and having to play their substuites out of position.Ireland are rebuilding at the moment and like one commentator mentioned Ireland need a good Physio. I think they need a miracle to cure the players with broken bones.
Great game ..well done to both teams.
Bye, bye Declan.
Shameful and unprofessional display. Time for kidney to go and time for change, we just are not good enough, too many pub-side errors and complacency. Most of you are not proud enough or passionate enough to wear the shirt of your country. Shame on you all.
PH and now?
Italia, Italia, Italia!
Absolutely Brillaint! What a laugh! Europe's Bail our merchants now add a potential wooden spoon to their proud sporting history!!!
how rory best stayed on for 70 minutes when he couldnt find his man in the lineout all day is beyond me. well with kidney i guess its no surprise. heasilp yet another 80 minutes played .....yet another game with no yardage made. i just hope france beat scotland by the required amount of points so that we get what we deserve.....which is the spoon.
Brilliant! Happy St Patrick's day weekend!!! Bail out merchants are now wooden spoon merchants!!
Well, I s'pose everybody is waiting for the decider; wotever, Italy are doing well and as usual the '6 Nations' manages to create a great World- Wide enviable spectacle; c'mon ye Scots; dinnae tak the Wooden Spoon back wi ye; we haf enuff 'Spurtles' here a'l reddy. Rob; Aviemore
Gareth, would talk utter crap! Wayne Barnes is having a great game, even the Irish commentators are saying he's been nothing but fair. Steve Walsh is the biggest danger, he has history of bias against England and was even banned for 3 weeks at the last WC !
Come on Italy.
i just hope this is the last time i see paddy jackson in an irish shirt. i feel so sorry for him...he looks so lost and out of his depth at this level.
o driska you dirty player you knew wat you were doing and deserved a red. one way to end youre carear
its one thing being a poor poor rugby team which we undoubtly are but now we are becoming the laughing stock of the rugby world. as a proud irish rugby man......this is so embarassing.
Irish rugby is a pure and utter shambles. any time an irish player is tackled he goes off injured. too many lightweight soft players. its a game for big strong fast men, yet we continue to produce and select lightweight soft brittle players. Rory best, jamie heaslip, paddy jackson. brian o driscoll, keith earls and rob kearney nowhere near good enough. I really hope we get the wooden spoon this year because its what we deserve. irish rugby been in serious decline since 2009 and it will continue to regress for the next 10 years at least.
Italy all over the irish..Ireland look terrible .. Come on Italy smash them up!!!
Wayne Barnes should never be allowed to referee an International match ever again. He is so biased against all the HOME nations to the benefit of England very often. If someone was to take the statistics of games he has refereed involving Scotland, Ireland and Wales I have no doubt that there would be a pattern. I have been to matches where his blatant diregard for the rules of the game are disgusting.
Italy have been getting better and better over the last few years and this year better than ever the days of ruleing out Italy are truly over ,may the best team
Cian Healy shouldn't even be playing but in some ways it would be poetic justice if he continues giving Italy convertible penalties!
