The problem isn't with Tri Nations exclusivity, its to do with Argentinas comparative isolation, combined with the fact that many Argentine players play for french club sides, which has often raised the question of whether they should be admitted to the six nations as their players are in europe for much of the time.

I admire Argentina, especially after the last world cup where they were the only team that gave south Africa a run for their money and arguably the number 2 team of the tournament.

This despite not having "local" competition, as the so called northern and southern hemisphere teams do, to keep them on their toes.

Interesting to note that rugby was brought to Argentina by the Welsh, and in some parts of Patagonia welsh is still spoken.

The Northern Hemisphere's main tournament has grown in size with the game France came in to make it the five nations in 1910 and then Italy joined to make it the present day Six Nations.

Down in the Southern Hemisphere why haven't Argentina been invited to join the Tri-Nations?? Are the others afraid of a new comer disrupting their clique?? From what I can see it would only do the game good.

Captain Birdseye when referring to the southern hemisphere teams I wasn`t including the San Marinos of the SH such as Tonga, Figi etc, the following stats will show how far ahead the big three OZ,SA and NZ, are over the "home countries2, England v SA 12-18, v NZ 6-25, V 12-17.
Ireland v SA 3-14,v OZ 8-19, v NZ 0-22. Scotland v SA 4-14, v OZ 7-18, V NZ 0-25. Wales v SA 1-21, NZ 3-20, OZ 2-14/

As you can see from the above stats the so called home countries are a long way behind.
As for pointing out to you that Ireland with two tries to nil were the better team against Wales, that is a lost cause, as you know more than all the Rugby scribes and the former players, now TV pundits who without exception, declared declared Ireland the best team against Wales.

"very good at spoiling other peoples games and preventing other sides playing"

This simply isn't true and doesn't reflect their style of play.

They won their games with tries and despite poor kicking form from O'Gara.

That on its own spells attacking rugby.

They did not deliberately bog games down as you suggest, but if anything did the opposite, especially against France and Italy.

Before you repeat it, I know you think Ireland were the most consistent and efficient team and therefore the most deserving.

Your other comments are simply inaccurate.

Italy deliberately sabotaged Irelands running game from the off and England thought they might have better luck doing the same thing.

As for stopping other teams playing, captain, thats called good tackling and anticipation.

They didn't do it in a malicious way, but won ball fair and square upfront with a superb display of forward dominance. Their short coming was their over enthusiasm which cost them dear against wales.

I've dealt with all your points above and yet you keep banging the same tired old drum.

You are beginning to sound insincere.

Exploiting a defensive weakness - just as Wales aimed to exploit Ronan O'gara's weakness in defence - a tactic which I have defended as intelligent earlier in this thread.

That's how plans of attack are formulated - you identify the opposing teams weaknesses and exploit them.

Wales went for O'Gara and didn't get through.

I don't really count the trip, I think that was a mere flash of stupidity and it didn't have any real intent behind it or O'Gara might have been seriously injured and the welsh player sent off.

The targeting of O'Gara took the form of relentless running at him to burst a hole in the Irish defensive line or create one somewhere else by drawing cover.

O'Driscolls try had nothing to do with kicking over williams.

Granted it might not have been entertaining for you, sorry about that.

And though you may find this incongruous, I will defend both Henson and Jones for their misses on the basis that their kicks were simply too long. Sometimes those kicks go over, but generally they are desperate last ditch efforts that fall short.

Within range, Jones's kicking was exemplary and to his great credit.

He would have been lucky to get that last one over the bar.

If he was a bigger hitter, henson wouldn't have taken the other one, but what henson lacks in accuracy he makes up for with power.

It must have been hard deciding who should take the last kick.

His drop goal was beautiful, as was O'Gara's.

Consequently not very entertaining to watch.unless your Irish or Welsh
Wales lost their full back early on, lee byrne,who is an attacking full back to boot and is one of their attacking strengths, the replacement who was not a natural full back,had to fill in.
Ireland then exploited this,by lobbing over Williams[5 foot 9],now if the full back hadnt been injured[how was he injured?]Ireland would not have had that weakness to exploit[another element of luck],although clever tactics by Ireland.
Wales missed one other penalty,JONES was not the kicker it was Henson.
no, it was not very good rugby, but IRELAND deserved to win the grand slam,they were the most consistent side,and they were effecient at stopping others playing,just like England used to be,but not my cup of tea.
bring on the All Blacks,IRELAND wont stop them playing decent Rugby.

But wales didn't play that way did they.

As for patriotic fervour, I don't think you read my post very well or you would have noticed a distinct refusal to allow this discussion to descend to that level.

You would also have noticed my comments concerning welsh pressure.


Here is an unemotional unpatriotic comparison.


Category A - playmaking.

As a team, Ireland succesfully created two definite try scoring opportunities and one definite drop goal opportunity

As a team, Wales created one definite drop goal opportunity.

(note the word "definite")

Category B - mistakes (creating opportunities for the other team)

As a team, Ireland gave away 6 penalties.

As a team, wales gave away 1 penalty.


Category C - Opportunity conversion into points

O'Driscoll and Bowe's individual strength turned both try scoring opportunities into points, and O'Gara added two points in each case.

O'Gara turned the Drop Goal opportunity into points.

Jones turned 5 out of six penalties into points and the drop goal opportunity.

With the exception of wales drop goal, every points scoring opportunity was either created or gifted by Ireland.

In other words, Ireland totally controlled the shape of the game.

I too love the way that wales play when they are playing well, they have a history of creative players - Gareth edwards - johnathan davies - shane williams etc.

O'Driscoll possesses and exhibits all the same qualities as those players.

And the reason wales didn't play that game was because Ireland didn't let them.

the diffrence between you and I,is that I like to see rugby played in a certain way.
I like the way Wales play,it is more entertaining to watch,I dont normally like England,but against France ,they provided an entertaining spectacle.
as far as I am concerned it is not about winning but how you win.
Ireland were efficient but uninteresting,a bit similar to England when they were at their peak,not my cup of tea.

I was watching the game,
you cant take away penalties, they are part of the game,you are allowing your sentiment and patriotic fervour to cloud your vision.
Wales were leading six points to nil first half, first half goes to Wales, Ireland scored 17 Points in the second half,wales scored 9 points,ireland get the second half.
however, to win by two points is not a comprehensive win,neither was their win over England comprehensive.
I am pleased they have won the grand slam,but in the last match they were lucky[it very nearly went the other way],to have to wait till the last minute,and then rely on a penalty falling marginally short,requires a bit of luck.
over all the matches they were the most consistent team,and therefore deserved it.
but none of these teams compares to the All Blacks,the AllBlacks would have wiped the floor with all the six nations teams

Gatlin was just trying to shit stir.

He couldn't be expected to understand the relationship and history between Ireland and wales in Rugby union, particularly in the six nations.

Ireland and wales have always loved playing each other, and hold each other high in their affections for each other.

They are probably the only team who could have beaten Ireland that Ireland would have felt no grudge against afterwards.

We compete against each other ferociously on the pitch, but there remains a strong and enduring sense of camaraderie between the two countries.

O'gara was the obvious weak defensive link that was always going to be exploited and every team who play Ireland look for a way to exploit it, and Ireland feature that into their strategy as it has become expected.

O'gara was rattled, and kicked too much from open play which thoroughly got on my nerves for one.

The first time he though about passing - at the start of the second half - Ireland scored a try.

Captain, I fail to see how two tries and a near miss stands as an even match for one fruitless drive for the line.

If Ireland had lost it would have been nothing more than a just punishment for sloppy discipline.

In such circumstances, the team with the better discipline can indeed pat itself on the back for keeping its nerve and restraint, and the team with the sloppy discipline can make no complaints but simply learn their lesson.

However, to call the rugby evenly matched would be very wide of the mark.

Ireland owned the line out, had the slight edge they needed up front and had the killer instinct in the center and on the wing that could capitalize on that slight edge.

Their defence was awesome, to the extent that I don't think Shane Williams had more than one go at running.

Take away the penalties and the score was 17 - 3.

Credit must go to wales for both keeping their nerve and rattling the Irish, thus creating conditions that favoured their kicker, but this is not to be confused with ambitious exciting rugby by any stretch, which is what we have come to expect from wales and what I believe they expect of themselves, but didn't get given the opportunity to play.

Win or lose we love the welsh and we relish competing against them and I would have loved to have been in Cardiff last night whoever won because thats how we roll.

"France will win resoundingly and with a level of class not seen in these parts for a long time."

At the time I was actually toning myself down, and in general conversation was pronouncing that France would be pushing england all over the pitch and runnng rings around them when they'd finished.

Am I the only person who, when that huge French bloke goes running down the pitch, hears the theme tune to 'Black Beauty' in their head and see him running in slow motion, with his hair flowing in the wind?

Anyone??



Just me then....
























I suppose I'm the only one who thinks half the French team are troglodytes as well....

Yes there is that element of extra effort.

Should be a good match
