Thread: Ireland Tour To South Africa

  1. #1

    Default Ireland Tour To South Africa

    With Ireland's tour to South Africa about to begin and a lot of injuries to key players how do you rate their chances?

    I reckon they will lose the series 3-0.

    They were far from their best in the six nations and at the end of a long season and missing some big players I just think they are going hammered.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    I hope you are wrong also but I fear you may be right.

    Definitely heavy underdogs (with good reason) but with injuries having forced schmidts hand we've a team lining out and extended panel that a lot of fans would have wanted to see. Some exciting players going to get game time in a massively intimidating environment and it's going to bring them on for six nations and this is the start of a wc cycle so as long as we don't suffer and complete hidings it should be a good tour!! . . . I hope

    Yeah I suppose that is an upside. But it's just a pity that it took so many injuries until players that deserve a chance got it.

    C. J. Stander given a red card. For a reckless challenge.

    Yeah, I think a red was a bit harsh though.

    A brilliant achievement.
    And it wasn't just a stroke of luck that won it. They were the better team on the day.
