Some St. Patrick’s Day!

Ireland have agonizingly missed out on winning the Six Nations 2007 despite beating Italy 51-24 in Rome. Ireland’s win meant that France faced Scotland knowing they had to win by a margin of 24 points or more. The French did what they had to, winning by 46-19 thanks to a last-gasp try.

    They deserved to lose. They let the french score in the last couple of minutes in Croke Park and then treated the Italians like a school boy team in added time today. Pity.

    Roll on the world cup. Ireland will need to beat both the French and Argentinians to progress beyond the quarter finals. Otherwise, a spanking from the All Blacks is on the cards.

    If it’s any consolation, Celtic cricketers unexpectedly kicked the Pakistani side to the curb at the Cricket World Cup today.
