I’m speechless. I have no idea what to say after that match. The first half was so horrible. Unless you were French[1] of course. What is with Ireland and first halves in France? Remember 2 years ago? Although this was worst, because right up to the final whistle the hope was there.

And let me tell you hope is a killer.

French fuckers.

Still, lets look at the positives; the scrum. Yes, I said the scrum, imagine that, an Ireland scrum that was going forward. That dominated the French pack! That led to a penalty try. The forward pack had a great second half. ROG too had a great game, kept us in touch, barely, in the first half. But on the wings[2] we’re a bit “who’s supposed to be playing there”. I also think that the lineout, at first, wasn’t great, but it did improve as the match went on. BOD was his usual hard-working self, but Trimble was very quiet. I don’t think he is good enough for the likes of France. Interesting to see who O’Sullivan will select for the next match against Scotland.

Sport really is a roller-coaster isn’t it?

Final score, btw, was France 26 – Ireland 21 and I officially hate Vincent Clerc.

    I'm feeling a little strange myself. The clock stopped working on Italian TV and I had no idea how much time was left until the last minute when they showed the clock in the stadium. I'm now going out for dinner with 5 French people. If any of them mention the rugby I'm afraid I might jusr crack…
