And so to the next match. Ireland take on the hefty looking Georgians at 8pm tomorrow night (Saturday).
It’s time to make another prediction and having pondered on the previous posts – some critical and some supportive – I have decided to put it out there that I think Ireland will put at least 50 points on Georgia. Is my new found “a week’s a long time in rugby” thinking misplaced ?
So here it is – my prediction : IRELAND 52 GEORGIA 13
(hummed to the tune of “The 12 Days of Xmas”)
6 very good tries, 5 con-versions, 4 long range penalties … aaand a bonus point iiiin the bag
As for who will score them ?
Tries – Horgan (2), Dempsey (1), O’Driscoll (1), O’Gara (1) and Horan (1)
Conversions – O’Gara (5/6)
Call me mad …
