Online comments after Ireland v New Zealand

A selection of the “keyboard warrior” reactions after the full-time whistle of our featured matches of the weekend.

If you’d like to contribute stay tuned to
our Facebook page for our “Feel free to leave your thoughts…” posts which show up around full time after Leinster & Ireland matches.


Marguerite Furlong Harpur ♥️ ๐Ÿ’ฏ ๐Ÿ‘ absolutely brilliant

George Larkin All heroes. But Sexton, O Mahoney, Kearney were awesome today.


Janine Taylor Now THAT was a game of rugby!!!

Damian Scott Best team in the world. Hands down. Never gave NZ an inch.


Imelda Reidy From 1-23 we were outstanding. No argument about the best team out there by a country mile. COYBIG ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Tim Cronin Well played guys, thoroughly deserved. ABs never looked like breaching the defence.


Moira Cunningham Hearts are exploding with pride for them

Wayne O'Brien Most seriously impressive- a hard fought contest from kick off. Always intense = mentally demanding. Excellent defence and great discipline


Richard Mifsud Veni Vide Vici That was an unbelievably professional performance. We belong ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‰☘️

Ginette Mifsud So immensely proud of the boys. Unbelievable effort from all of them ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️


Gav Heg POM is not human. Bundee, handsome Rob, stander, fish fryer, marmion, furlong any of them worthy man of the match. The game has me knackered. First half should have had an all black in the bin but we did it. My god we did it!

Peggy Sibbald an amazing game of rugby best I have seen ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ❤️❤️


Dee Beare Literally the best overall 80 minutes I have ever seen any Irish team play. Any one of O’Mahoney, Stander, Toner, Kearney or Van Der Flier could have been MOTM. It was the culmination of everything Schmidt has brought to Irish rugby.

Derek McGee Gary Ringrose said it best mid-game... "F*@kin Hell!" ๐Ÿ˜


Paula Downes There are not enough superlative s to describe the performance.

Dรณnal Foley WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Amber Jane Harrop What a performance so many bodies put on the line - anyone doubting we could do it, we can.

Gerald Williamson A fantastic team effort. The defense was immense and the penalty count against the AB's was proof of the pressure that Ireland kept on the AB's. Ireland can now feel justified as being serious contenders for RWC 2019 on tonights evidence.


Cian ร“ Muilleoir Many hours later and I'm still lost for words. I can just about muster one: immense.

Olwen Barrett OMG what a win!! Every single one of the 23 played their heart out, gave it their all, could not have asked for anything more from them!! And the 24th man?? Supporters......well done, the stadium was rocking!!
So proud, so happy, so thrilled......Ireland you rocked!! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช☘


Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

They were unbreakable. They were so resolute that you have to wonder what was in each and every one of their engines.


Gregor Paul - NZ Herald

“You get up, you form a line and you get off it to make tackles. it’s not rocket science”


Sean Farrell - The42.ie

A perfectly executed chip from the Ulster standout was chased right to the line and touched down for a moment that roused an already raucous Aviva home support.


Chris Kelleher - Pundit Arena

Peter O’Mahony (was) diving down into the breakdown like he was ferreting around to find a set of keys his kids had dropped into the waste bin.


Andy Bull - The Guardian

"It represented us not taking a backward step"

"We looked through (lineouts v Argentina) and there were a few that couldn't have been thrown any better and we still lost."


Rรบaidhrรญ O'Connor - Irish Independent

"You are replacing a quality player with two more quality players."


IrishRugby.ie

"...the Irish are just so hard to beat, I guess that's first and foremost their greatest strength."


NZ Herald

...yet again for this weekend’s match against Japan, a groin issue has robbed England of one of their truly word-class threats.


Harry Latham-Coyle - Last Word on Rugby

The shouting/chanting during the haka requires forced expiration of air from the lungs. This means the following inhalation is deeper, resulting in greater oxygen intake.
