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.

I don't think that was one of the venues nominated. Pearse Park in Galway was included though.

Ireland should play all home internationals between now and 2023 in the Sportsground in protest.

Wonderful Idea... indeed, I'd modify it and just have those games for the Unions that voted No to our bid.

I liked the previous suggestion that Ireland should now boycott the semi-final and final stages of any future RWCs.

This is amazing. Laugh

We should have paid more attention to Dean Swift. On a programme this evening on him, they were discussing how he thought the Scots were treacherous and never to be trusted! From what the curator of Marsh's Library (who has some of his books), his books are full of notes in the margins on the treacherous Scots! In his correspondence, he says things like ''A treacherous knave; one of the greatest knaves even in Scotland.''

Havent they done that rather effectively so far by never qualifiying for the semi or final?

Ain't it just soul destroying when you have to explain the obvious irony in a post.

Hard work these threads at times..... no strike that.... all the time.

I know, I know.  Sounds like a shiiite article to me, to be honest.  Didn't read it but that bit about throwing stuff out of a pram.............. picard Laurel and Hardy are more modernist than that crud.
