Anyone watch the Rugby tonight at Lang Park?

The Wallabies made the Irish side look very ordinary - and the Irish side is the best it has been maybe ever.

Would be good to see Rugby make a comeback in Australia

I just watched the replay of aus v Ireland at suncorp, must have been a different game to Lang park as the Irish played bloody tough good rugby and can hold their heads high.

PS, never knew the game ever left Australia in the first place

Trouble with Union is it's dull as dishwater to watch; especially to people in eastern states who have been benefiting from the far more exciting Rugby League for decades.

The simplicity of League certainly appeals to the masses. Get the ball, run, get tackled. Repeat 5 more times and kick. Easy to understand, easy to play and easy to watch.

Whilst I understand it can be hard to grasp the complexity of the Rugby game for some, anyone who thinks that game against Ireland was dull needs to perhaps look at upping their dosage of Retalin.

^^^ Haha! As opposed to get the ball, get tackled, lose the ball, arcane penaty, kick, rinse, repeat until the game is decided on penalty kicks!

At least the ball isn't round.

Great performance by the Irish in Melbourne. The Aussies didn't front up like they did in Brisbane.

Big game in Sydney to decide the series.

I reckon Ireland will pull it off

Couldn't agree more. When I moved to Aus I got into NRL and picked Manly as my side. It is exciting because it is fast and there is alot of action, but it is also bloody repetitive. Rugby has so much more variation to the game, the kicking game more nuanced and intelligent players make a massive difference.
The Poms lost again today so a good day for me all round

If you are criticising soccer or football as it is known to the rest of the world, you are criticising one of the most skilful and greatest game of all.
Except for Australian soccer , it sucks .

Drama, ballet and sports don't mix.

Except on a soccer pitch.

I just don't understand w soccer supporters watch a game for 80mins or however long for the result to be a nil all draw? Serious? They should make the goals twice the width, then the game would be a spectacle.
