Correct McGrath, I have pointed this out before, Gaelic games and Soccer are more popular, Rugby comes a poor third in popularity.
England are reputed to have more Clubs than we have players, so by all accounts we should never win, but along with Scotland and Wales we have had our moments, and today ranks with the best, well done lads.

Well done indeed. The better team on the day won, and they seem a very good team. The Triple Crown would be well deserved.

I think that ard mhacha's comments about population/popularity are a little simplistic though.

Using that logic, India would be the undisputed champions of world cricket, the All Blacks would be minnows at rugby, and Australia wouldn't win anything....

England were undoubtedly worthy of winning the world championship but it's always great when a superiority complex gets shaken, just like when Scotland did it at Wembley in '67. Good on the Ireland side who thoroughly deserved their result on the day.

We will celebrate with the triple crown, you could have had 33 to 1, at our local bookmakers on this, now you wouldn`t get the reverse odds, as it was I made a nice wee sum on the England game, taking Ireland at evens with a 22 point start, bliss.

Ard, I'm sorry if that came over as sour grapes. It wasn't intended that way. I was dissapointed in the way England looked but as I indicated earlier, that could well have been down to Ireland for example studying the lineouts and working out how to win them. English mistakes could be down to Irish pressure, etc.

At the end of the day, all that really matters is how the 2 teams play on the day. Ireland won justifiably IMO purely on the very fair grounds they were the better side.

MEN CHOKE IN FRONT OF LARGE CROWD

80,000 spectators watched helplessly yesterday as 15 sportsmen choked in front of them, apparently after being force-fed a large slice of humble pie. A doctor attending the scene said that the men had a medical history of this sort of thing: apparently it also
happened in 2000 in Edinburgh, Wembley in 1999 and Landsdowne in 2001.

BTW There is a theory that Rugby while its invention is credited to WW Ellis, is unlikely to simply have been invented. Rather it was a more gradual progression and evolution of the ancient Irish game of Cáid )popular in Kerry and Cork. So why wouldn't we have one. Rugby is after all an IRISH game ;-). Looking forward to seeing Ireland win next year in Croke Park

Let the Soccer crowd, [who helped themselves to the World Cup money?] go cap in hand to some of their cross-chanell friends and beg .
Both the Rugby and Soccer Associations have been long enough around to have a couple of decent stadiums, the GAA have many good stadiums throughout Ireland, all down to hard working gaels and shrewd mangament.

ard - Good luck to the Irish, it was deserved. On the day, as Dallaglio (sort of) said - the best team won.

Here's the challenge - will you, all regardless, come back next year & say the same? If England romp home in 2005 on their way to the (expected) Grand Slam, will you be as voluble & gracious in defeat as in victory?

I am minded of the Portsmouth fans in the recent FA Cup Q/F against Arsenal. They cheered their team throughout. They sang "Pompey Chimes" solidly for 90 minutes. They also gave a standing ovation to every Arsenal substitution, & applauded the victors in defeat.

Would you, ungrudgingly, do the same?

The Irish won on merit this year. Will you cheer as lustily next year if your side suffers the reverse? Portsmouth never let that stop them - how about you?

As is always the case, the true winners on the day were the supporting fans of both sides. Fuelled by alcohol before and during the game and totally integrated within the stadium there was good humour and sportmanship demonstrated throughout. My personal highlight(other than the result) was observing a friend asking directions from a mounted policeman after the game as the horse casually ate the pocket of his Barbour jacket.

I dont think Irish supporters in any code have been found wanting in defeat. But I hope the English team show a bit more respect for our head of state than they did under Martin Johnson last time.

Croke Park - personally I'd like to see the rugby played there, the atmosphere would be intimidating and there would be more tickets available. Unfortunately the GAA wont even allow a debate from within their own organisation so there's not much hope.

I don't think I'd want the English soccer fans in there or in any stadium for that matter.

Ard Mhaca , you must have been born within the last ten to fifteen years if you are not aware of the difficulties for soccer people in gathering funds for anything, much less a stadium, over the years .
I have been involved for a lot longer and could tell many tales of the reception given to people like me at the doorsteps.
Not like the one given the GAA lads who were (and still are in places) seen as the only "true gaels".
The kind of money collected over the last 60 to 70 years by the GAA was never available to soccer clubs around the country. That includes the clubs formed in the rural areas after the '66 world cup on television.
The rugby and GAA officials always had the "upper class" and working class (rural especially) shelling out to them.

ard - I'm not talking about English football fans, & it's not only them that boo anthems. I deplore any alleged fans of any country disrepecting their opponents anthem. It's boorish at best (& it's never "at best", IMHO).

As an example, I used the the Portsmouth's fans recent & rather wonderful behaviour. This isn't directly related to football, it is simply something that I found surprising, delightful, and (above all) sporting.

In Rugby, I've never noticed any overt animosity. Nor was I implying anything about Irish fans of any sport. You, however, (like it or not) have something of a reputation as an English basher. You came in here crowing about the Irish victory. I'm English. The Irish won last week, they won on merit, bloody good luck to 'em (you). It's good for the game, it's good for Ireland, it's good for England in the long run; & I doubt you'll find an intelligent fan (this is rugby, not footie, after all! ;) ) who'd disagree.

The challenge still stands. You have shown yourself to be a biased Anglophobe in the past. You've enjoyed yourself in the last week. I've enjoyed the Irish victory too. My team got done, what the hell, that's what it's about, isn't it?

But where will you be & what will you be saying if YOUR team gets stuffed next year???!!!

That's the true test of a fan, I think. Will you be as generous in defeat as you are in victory? I haven't seen your generosity in the last couple of years, I have to say!

barrygeo - As noted, I've nothing to say (in the negative) about Irish fans. As regards any 'disrepect', from what I remember of reports from this side of the Sea, the events had more to do with lousy organisation on the part of the Irish RU & English concentration on the job in hand (let's face it - Ireland is A Power in rugby these days, & not to be taken lightly!). There was, IMHO, no deliberate slight toward the Irish Premier whatsoever. In all honesty, I can't imagine even a soccer team being so crass, never mind rugby!!
