RUGBY-Ireland v Wales

The Six Nations 2012 tournament kicked off on Saturday with a few warm-up games before the main event of the weekend – Ireland v Wales at the new Aviva Stadium in Dublin. All the pundits and experts seemed to have Ireland down as favourites to win but this game was to be anything but predictable!

What an absolute stormer of a game with both sides giving us all an amazing match full of skill and excitement in every twist and turn. In the first half Wales were the stronger side and had the lions share of possession and territory but this wasn’t reflected in the score! Rhys Preistland is a great player but his kicking wasn’t upto standard and dropped us some vital points.

After the interval both teams took the game up a gear with much more pace and tempo but it was marred by two dodgy tackles – one definatly a RED card whereas the other was at most a yellow. Leigh Halfpenny took over kicking duties for Wales and managed to score the vital winner in the dying seconds to get Wales a 23 – 21 victory and possibly setting up Wales to get another Grand Slam?!/njhamer/status/166201484764131328!/dan_lydiate/status/166201195491377152!/NathanWalkerr/status/166201824557281280!/MissLJJ/status/166206015547777026!/Miss_NinjaStar/status/166201438844891136!/joe16led/status/166201450983202816!/willcarling/status/166201272398127104!/ShowbizSimon/status/166202597210992643!/wynneevans/status/166201667484786688!/ScottQuinnell/status/166202015897235456!/djleighjones/status/166201457736032256!/ruthwignall/status/166202959359782912!/byrney_15/status/166201826692186112!/rwcbrianmoore/status/166201705334194176!/TJFCharity/status/166201448500166656!/rachaelphillips/status/166201376630779904!/NeilJenkins10/status/166205664090275840!/FranDonovanTV/status/166201156060708864!/RobBrydon/status/166201123252867073
