Today I will be supporting Ireland, I hope they beat England. Nothing was done to punish Eddie Jones for calling Ireland - Scummy and Wales - a little s***t place

Come on Ireland, wipe the smirk off that Aussies face

Sorry England supporters

DH will be loyally supporting England this afternoon - I know nothing about it but don't mind watching while reading the papers and getting to the crossword before him.

I am English but will cheer on Ireland today. What a coup for St Patrick’s Day that would be. Come on Ireland!

Craicon Sat 17-Mar-18 10:07:56

Obviously, I will be supporting Ireland in the rugby before we join in the St Patrick’s Day parade in town this afternoon. 😁

MawBroon Sat 17-Mar-18 10:13:35

As a Scot you will know who I will be supporting grin

Anniebach Sat 17-Mar-18 11:35:44

Oooops, got so carried away with wanting Ireland to win

Wales v France Today

Cymru am byth

A bit of cheering for both from me, as I am English but have Irish relatives, and was brought up in a kind of half and half way.grin Which means I shall be happy whichever side wins, and will raise a glass to them.🍀🌹🍷🥃🍺

DH will be shouting for England.

ginny Sat 17-Mar-18 12:22:54

DH will be for England. I will be somewhere that I can’t see or hear any of it .

There's a rugby emoticon for today! Good luck to all teams but yes, what a great coup for Ireland if they win.

DH shouting for England and DGS2 who is half Irish shouting for them others. grin

Well done, Scotland. Jeepers. That was close.

Good for Scotland - BiL off to Rome so happy bunny.
Now Wales and Ireland to win and secure Scotland's second place in the table (I think).
Happy for Ireland to win today of all days!

Nice to see so much support for Ireland. I think I’m Irish though DNA shows only I’m only 16%( and 65% UK.) Watching the match and hoping for the right result!

Agus Sat 17-Mar-18 16:04:35

Phew, we just made it. I am completely wrung out now. Well done 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

What a day will be held with a win at Twickenham and St
Patrick’s day to celebrate. Many sore heads grin Good luck 🇮🇪

Oh my goodness , keep it up Ireland

Jalima1108 Sat 17-Mar-18 16:36:08

I think it should be regarded as 'just a normal turn of phrase' from an Australian anniebach
Scummy = They beat us, the bastards
Little sh**t place = How does such a little place like Wales produce so many excellent rugby players?


Agus Sat 17-Mar-18 16:51:25

Well done Ireland 🇮🇪. Let the Guinness flow. Slainte

Anniebach Sat 17-Mar-18 16:53:19

Congratulations Ireland

Beat England

At Twickenham

On St. Patricks Day

The Grand Slam

MawBroon Sat 17-Mar-18 16:54:40

2 down, one to go!
Are the nerves up to it?

Anniebach Sat 17-Mar-18 17:10:08

Now a Welsh win pleeeeease

mcem Sat 17-Mar-18 18:45:18

Now I'm torn! I want Wales to win but if they do Scotland's in 3rd place.
If France prevails we're 2nd.
All things considered I'm backing Wales!

Anniebach Sat 17-Mar-18 19:32:14

So the celts take the top three

11 yr old dogs is in Rome with his parents for the rugby-he’s having an absolute ball with the rest of the happy supporters! Great result for his first away international.
