WHO SAID THE CELTIC TIGER HAS LOST ITS ROAR!!!
Paul O’ Connell is ready for a battle!
This is going to be an epic show-down between two great sides who have shown great form to date in their demolition of their opponents. They now will come face-to-face on SATURDAY morning in Wellington to fight it out for a place in the WORLD CUP SEMI-FINALS.
RONAN O’ GARA HAS STILL GOT THE LEGS FOR IT!
HIS TOP CLASS SHOOTING BROUGHT US TO WHERE WE ARE ON SATURDAY, PLAYING IN THE QUARTER-FINALS………
Wales have shown mighty form too. Ireland must know they will face a hugh barrier to their ambition of reaching a WORLD CUP SEMI-FINAL for the FIRST TIME in their history. Wales will prove to be no easy opponents. They have shown a great mix of power, pace and creativity despite their narrow loss to South Africia.
IRELAND must continues to impress… Brian O’Driscoll has been know to say…’you have to earn the right to play your rugby by gaining supremacy in the forward battle….and IRELAND did that superbly……..
For all the Irish supporters heading to Wellington make the Celtic Tiger roar lounder than ever! Good luck to both teams.
THE BEST OF LUCK TO ALL ON SATURDAY. .. REGARDS, THE EGANS TEAM…+35318303611
