The question was why he was cited - eye contact is an automatic citation.
 
They've adjudicated in his favour. Which is good news for Scotland, but the reason was the reason.


Have you seen the video of the tunnel incident? Looked like Farrell was being a twat

I have a bad feeling about next Saturday, our away form is shite and Ireland are the best side in it this year.

The only thing rugby is better than football at is occupying posh folk and accommodating women.
Probably the worst sport in the world. When does this shit finish?

I think you will find that’s not true, a lot of the posh guffs get hacked off because the lesser classes are attending games. If anything it’s football that become more middle class.

Every person I've ever met who likes rugby seems to be the popped collar, boat shoe wearing type.

Maybe I've just been unlucky.

Its still shite however.

I get in Ireland and other countries it's not a upper class sport.

It seems that way here in Scotland though imo. I get the feeling they look down on most football fans. "Wouldn't happen at the rugby"

That's because it is that way.  It's a total turn off if you're from Scotland.

 

I enjoy the game, but have no interest in the Scottish national team.  However, it's certainly not an upper/middle sport in the southern hemisphere!  Super Rugby, out here, is much more accessible.  Before they were disbanded, I used to watch the Western Force whenever I could... was brilliant getting to watch the Kiwi province teams at close quarters.  Some of the shapes you'd get in the crowd - particularly the Kiwis!  :hypno:  :hysterical:

If that is your way of looking at it - I hate it cos they like it - it's only going to be them that gets it.

I know plenty working / middle class folk that support the team and go to every home match . Very much support the team myself always have done although from the couch . There may well be a high percentage of hoo ray Henrys supporting the team but certainly wouldn't tar all with that brush

Not really. Simply don't like it and I've tried watching it a couple of times.

I'm only giving an opinion of the folk who I've come across who seem to like it. As previously mentioned I've possibly been unlucky

Each to their own. Be a hoora boring world if everyone liked the same things :)

The citing was for the in game incident no?

 

I hate Farrell, and have it on good authority he's ot well liked by the other home nations (and I assume France/iTaly etc)  but is widely respected as a player.

 

I hope we win, I think we'll lose, I have an acquaintance who plays for Ireland, so it's doubly bad for me if we do. 

Again. (I'm used to the ribbing by now tbh)

Cool - who's your pal? Ireland are a right good team at the moment it must be said, I think Scotland will need to step it up even from the England performance if we're to take anything from Dublin. 

 

Farrell isn't even especially well-liked within the England camp, apparently, there was something about this in the Times earlier this week. If you watch back Scotland's first try on Saturday, the dirty bastard tries to nail Finn Russell off the ball long after Russell got away the grubber-kick which led to Jones scoring. Which is also why (and the camera just about caught this) Finn tousled Farrell's hair as he ran past him to celebrate with his teammates  :laughing:

 

Farrell is a wonderful rugby player and a twat, basically. That seems to be the consensus view. It's why he's not being spoken about as a potential England captain even though he would be a logical choice as Dylan Hartley's tenure as captain seems to be coming to an end.

Ireland are the best team in it IMO but we wasted our chances yesterday.

If Ireland beat England next week, it could be shoogly peg time for Eddie Jones.

Very frustrating game, we were much the better team in the first half but butchered several clear try-scoring opportunities, whilst also gifting Ireland their opening try with that ridiculous flat floated pass which Stockdale read a mile away.

Ireland for the slam next week, barring a freeze. England have regressed so much in this tournament that it’s in danger of taking some of the shine off our win a fortnight ago.

Yes were it not for the gift wrapped opener and our inability to hang onto (at least 2) final passes which would have likely led to a score, it would have been much closer / interesting.

 

Think we got a bit carried away with our adventurous fast and wide passing.  The Harlem Globe Trotters would have struggled to catch some of those passes, the height they were at.

 

Still, I expect to beat the eyeties and so finish a respectable and encouraging campaign with a record of mostly wins.

Yeah the criminal attempted pass that led to the Oirish first try was unreal. We are definitely still in the game for long periods but as you say we shot ourselves in the foot and also that cunt Sexton had to find his kicking boots unlike the previous Wales game

Agreed we should beat Italy but I certainly wouldn’t bey mortgage on it tho

Bigger yes, slower - I very much doubt it.

It wasn’t a very exciting match but Ireland were very good.
