30 Day Rugby Challenge
Day 6- Most memorable International Test match
IRELAND v AUSTRALIA- NOVEMBER 2009
It was during the height of my James O’Connor obsession. And there he was, warming up on the pitch! I just remember screaming at him, so that’s probably why…
I’ve been at so many games though, Irish ones. I went to Ireland v Scotland in 2008 and Tommy Bowe got two tries. I went to Ireland v Italy this year and that was totally awesome, because the Italians are an amazing crowd! I was also at Ireland v South Africa several years in a row. So yeah, the live games are normally the most memorable.
In terms of matches I’ve watched on TV, it has to be the 2011 and the 2007 RWC Finals (duh), but also England v France in this year’s quarter final. That match just had it all, a Clerc try, a Max try, a Palisson assist, Harinordoquy changing his jersey mid-match (*drooled*), a Yach temper tantrum, a Trinh-Duc drop goal (not a great one, but whatever), England falling spectacularly to pieces, and so much passion and belief and just pure INSPIRATION from the French (all my lovelies <3), and English commentary conceding defeat (I do love when that happens, the English commentary is boss). And also love the French version: “ALLEZ! ALLEEEZ FRANCOIS!!!!”
Gotta love a Yach temper tantrum.
That being said, just gotta love Yach.
Yeah, Orla, we should totally just live on the Dimitri Yachvili bandwagon.
Is this the one from the world cup where the commentator was like ‘WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAH THERE YACH!’. Please post the link, I wanna see this in action
Should have mentioned- it’s a .gif.So right click and then click “open link in new tab”. If you want to watch the commentary unforch you’ll just have to watch the whole England game again with me. What a pity :P
South Africa 14-14 England
Good result for England. I think.
Sorry but the only thing I got out of that match was this young deuxieme ligne.
Hai, Eben Etzebeth. *girly giggle*
Hehehehe..Eben..sounds kinda funky. Well, could be worse, he could be Neville Neville, I don’t think I’ll EVER get over that injustice. And Aoife, really, commenting about England?
