Rugby Union is a popular sport in Ireland, so I was wondering if any of you follow it. When I saw the stadium poll, I saw Landsdowne Road, and it popped up into my head when Australia beat Ireland there at the World Cup.

All you Irish were going on about that we weren't good enough, you would win easily, but then we caned you 23-3, and went on to win the World Cup :cool:

Thanks for reminding me of such a great moment :D

I played the game for the years I was in school. Love the aul game and the craic around it. Dont remember the Aussies being to cocky when we were beating them with a couple of minutes to go in 91 in the quarter final.

Also dont remember anybody being cocky about beating the Wallabies last time either. The only cocky ones were me aussie mates. Anyway we'll see in autumn when the Wallabies are in Lansdowne.

You gotta be joking me right? It was all over TV. They were interviewing people in the streets and they said it.
