  1. Why is Stringer on the bench and Reddan starting???? Ireland cant win with Stringer sitting on the bench and the very slow Reddan starting the game.

  2. When o when is somebody going to get rid of
    irelands call .It sounded pathetic in NZ and not
    much better in OZ.It was as inspiring as DUBLIN
    on a wet day.

  3. I read a lot of interesting content here. Probably you spend a lot of
    time writing, i know how to save you a lot of work, there is an online
    tool that creates readable, SEO friendly posts in seconds, just
    search in google – laranitas free content source
