Rugby World Cup: Ireland pasted by triumphant France

France 25 - Ireland 3

It seems the luck of the Irish has finally run out. In a lacklustre display against a hungry French team they were reduced to just three points off a Ronan O'Gara drop goal. From here, it was bleak for Brian O'Driscoll's men. The big question is who is the most disappointing of the Super 6 in the Northern Hemisphere? England or Ireland? And was France that good or was it just that Ireland were completely abysmal?

Back again tomorrow for match analysis of South Africa V Tonga and England V Samoa. My heart says PI but my head thinks England can't play worse than last week and the South Africans are hitting gears like there's no tomorrow. We shall see.

For now now, I leave you with a scrumbag exclusive and the Wallabies ploy for derailing an All Black campaign (if either team makes it as far as a semi, that is). Ka kite.

Superbd performance by the Los Pumas. Now Ireland must win plus the bonus point.

Who is the most disappointing - Ireland or England? Neither really, after all, we all know that they're sucky teams, so their displays of woeful ineptitude have been quite predictable. Now if England actually scored some decent tries or Ireland didn't play like ten thumbed retards - then it'd be disappointing.
