Wales and Scotland are big meanies - Discuss

Post by Pot Hale on Tue 31 Oct 2017, 1:55 am

First topic message reminder :

Oct 31, Tuesday morning, World Rugby plans to announce who is the recommended host country for RWC 2023. The recommendation is contained in a 220 page analysis report conducted by an independent firm of assessors who have pored through every detail of the three bids. Apparently they've looked at everything from travel times, to accommodation, stadia facilities, and how long the queues would be for the loo.

Bookies had Ireland as favourites but their odds have lengthened slightly. Bill Beaumont and Agustin Pichot were given the report last Friday. The full document will be released to media today Oct 31, to maintain transparency and integrity of the bid process.

All the WR unions, except the three bidders, will vote on who should get it on November 15. It's a secret ballot, but the likelihood of a vote going against the recommendation would cause more than a few raised eyebrows. It could still happen though.

There could be a lot of glum faces by midday in either Dublin, or Paris or Cape Town.

*******************************
Nov 15, Wednesday, World Rugby plans to announce who the World Rugby Council of Unions have voted in favour to be host country for RWC 2023.  The various unions can relay on a 220 page analysis report conducted by an independent firm of assessors who pored through every detail of the three bids. And they said that any of the three bidders could host the RWC but based on their scoring, their recommendation was South Africa.

Irelamd didn’t get the RWC.

Snot fair.

Is Google Translate broken?

Don't capitalise it...

Oh I got it anyway, Scott - it's kind of explained in small print below the main title windows...but just curious that the Welsh word doesn't appear as an English meaning, even though the Translator obviously knows the meaning given what I said about the small-pint stuff beneath the main boxes.

Well, marty, you see the thing is, you come on here and just disagree with any of the slightest thing I mention on here, anything, if I came on here and started a topic about how tomorrow is Wednesday, no doubt you would find a way of countering it.

You are not always right, all the time. OK

picard

I can't help you being wrong so often or constantly dragging up the same arguments you were wrong about before

You came on here today telling Collapse to let it go after he posted an SA article saying they have issues with SA hosting the WC

Then you started in on me calling me a pleb and stupid but lacked the stones to do the second part directly

The old LD debating trick.

Comes up with nonsense, falsehoods etc and then when the error of his ways turns the whole thing round to a tangential topic rather than address the matter in hand.

Matter in hand?:

.....Tomorrow's vote that hasn't happened yet  (at least here, it may have already taken place in New Zealand).... but Ireland and it's followers should still hoist the white flag in advance of the vote like good gentlemen.

Is that it?

Out of curiosity, why would wales and scotland NOT vote for the irish bid?

From a logistics perspective its closer, better for their travelling supporters and more advantageous for their rugby teams.

From another perspective it sets a precedent for them being able to successfully bid in the future as small countries.

With that said, if they were to vote for Ireland then attempted to host and got the nod from WR in the assessment process it could go against them?

If SA get the nod tomorrow, a unified Celtic bid may be the a solution for everyone and establish themselves as hosts for the future

The same reason they were afraid to come over and play in the early seventies. This example is also why the dreaded English are supporting Ireland. Because it is right and the decent thing to do.


It’s a jealousy inferiority complex thing as faux celts being the junior partners as celts and their masters on the island of Britain. Good luck to them

A unified 'Celtic' bid?!  With a shower of Brutus types that would stab you in the back as quickly as they'd kiss you on the cheek?....
Oh no, not I.  I remember the thrust of the dagger during yonder European Club Rugby War.  We naively thought the 'Celts' would stick 'together' on that one too.  But nope, when the gold seams are there for the digging, the Celts forget they are Celts and do but stab enthusiastically their 'brothers' to get to it, say I.

Honour amongst the Celts?   Laugh  Let the other Celts vote as they want to vote.  Let it be noted and let Ireland vote for Italy next time and encourage them to bid next time.

It would be interesting know the reasons behind wales and scotland not voting for ireland. Fear of offending world rugby possibly. But surely ireland would be a far more advantagesous location purely from a self interest perspective, even leaving aside the whole celtic brotherhood angle.

I think it makes a lot of sense for SRU or WRU not to vote for Ireland. If Ireland win, they've nothing to gain and everything to lose. If Ireland lose, they've everything to gain.

Think about future RWC bids and Scotland's or Wales' ambitions to host them. Are they ever likely to host on their own? No - they don't have the infrastructure. So the only option would be a combined bid. Combine options would be nearest neighbours. England is off the list and anyway they can do it pretty much on their own. So Ireland is their best chance of a combo-host under the "Celtic" banner. If Ireland get to host it now, then there's two chances of hosting opportunities coming this way anytime in the next 20 years. So knock Ireland out, put manners on them, and tell them 'remember your mates the next time, if you want to go for it. We might even let you have the semi-final in Croker'

Sounds like an unbelievably petty approach and surefire way to prevent any co-peration with the IRFU in the future.

Not to mention sacrificing the interests of their own national team and fans.

Petty? Politically savvy possibly. I'd say the Welsh team would far prefer to be bivouacced in Cape Town, rather than traipsing through the sights of urban Tralee.

A 3 or 4 week trip to France or SA in 5* hotels is a bit more attractive to their blazers than a Ryanair daytrip to Dublinor Belfast.

Combined bids aren't looked upon favourably anymore and for good reason. Ireland winning is a good thing for any smaller country hoping to bid successfully and rightly so. Four of the biggest rugby nations in the world are really small countries.

France played a blinder with that one.

Oh well, it been a classic week for Ireland as usual - some great news and some bad news.

But it's nice to see a 'Perfume' Capital of the World once again get a BIG event to toy with in their own backyard. Congratulations to the French.

They queried elements of the French bid too, did the letter not mention France not having permission to use the stadiums listed in their bid?

Excellent choice. If it wasn't going to SA, then it made sense for it to go to France. They have the stadia, cars, running water, food, beds and wine to make this a memorable event.

And what's more, hundreds of NZ, SA and Australian players are now out of a job as France sets about ridding foreign players from its game. Flights to Auckland, Sydney and Cape Town will be booked out by tomorrow.

Objectively speaking France is by far the best equipped to host the tournament. World Rugby tried to fix the process to give South Africa a boost. Not the worst idea but the way they went about trying to swing it was rubbish. The voters took the criteria laid out by World Rugby and ignored the bolloxological conclusions of the report. France was the only choice based on the criteria. We may as well get used to the same host every 16 years as only a select few countries will win given the current process.

Well then they should just be honest about it and stop the publicity Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Golden Ticket competition that must have taken a lot of money out of the Irish setup to promote and market etc. If they knew smaller countries are now no longer in the running for hosting these things then they should just be honest and give a list of Nations that no longer need to apply.
That will include into the future the best rugby Nation on the planet since virtually the game was invented, New Zealand itself. Now, that's Business Whistle - and market forces win out again.

Thank God it's not South Africa. I would have preferred Ireland, but at least it's the same timezone and at least it does not mean I have to traverse continents.

Thank God it's not South Africa. I would have preferred Ireland, but at least it's the same timezone and at least it does not mean I have to traverse continents.

I will go and watch Wales in France, I would not go to South Africa though.

??? South Africa was the safest place on the list according to the boys that knew!!! Why would you not go to SA Lord? Altitude sickness?

Thought your problem was with the SA bid?

Because as beautiful a country SA is, I value my belongings, my well being, and mostly my life. Very Happy

Also, I wonder if France have let Wales use the MS for any of our group games. Very Happy
