This is not the first time the green has risen in the midst of a four-year World Championship. Will they bear this charge until the 2023 French review?
How will this end?
As we prepare for a World Championship, will Dublin’s victory over All Blacks, who have been accused by the coach of trapping players into tough jobs and games, be like in 2018? Or will Farrell’s sowing survive this time, and will the Greens be able to be the protagonists until the end of the World Championships? This is the theme of the Insiders after the Test matches in November.
So the confusion is in perspective, because the current events are sure to be exciting. The Irish movement emerges from the Test matches of November in a state of mind between the Orion constellation and the guitar solo ‘Comfortable Num’.
This series, especially the match against New Zealand on November 13, marks the beginning of a new and promising era for Emerald Isle rugby. It took three years to recover from the hangover of November 17, 2018 victory. Ireland then topped the rankings (‘pektoor’, actually topping the rankings next summer), calling it the “favorite of the World Championships, which started 11 months later”, but entered an ugly and long tunnel.
2019 was a disaster: from home defeats against England in 6 countries to the World Cup against Japan (!), To the quarter-final massacre against the All Blacks. At that point the change of bench (Farrell for Schmidt) was already planned. However, even in 2020 and 21, there have been more shadows than lights between the heavy legacy of Schmidt’s heavy shoulders on Farrell’s shoulders and the intrusion of some players (Fomin Stockdale, Ryan, O’Malley and Murray).
A little in this atmosphere “Schmidt’s time is over foreverThe Test matches of November 2021 have arrived. Many at home and elsewhere did not believe Farrell’s lectures on the fun and effective attacking game that he taught his people. There were already rumors that Paul O’Connell might have joined the staff, perhaps to take on more important positions already.
The rest is history: the first 60 points scored for Japan reminded me of the extraordinary nature of World Cup defeat. Then, the 80-minute Schmidt era against the All Blacks came to an exact end, introducing Ireland back into Ovalia’s first period. What does that unspoken match mean? Ireland’s 8 minutes and 7 seconds out of 22 opponents against All Black Class’s 37 seconds: usually against pure science fiction.തുട്ടിനേരി‘.
That match turned some interesting players into world-class players. Everyone who is called to the test of maturity in a challenge they have never played has made a difference. We are talking about Keenan, Lowe, Gibson-Park and Doris, authors from purely leaders at the most difficult stage. Not forgetting Carbury and van der Flier, they became heroes again after long tunnels. Out of the 15 winners, only six played in the 2018 game: Ringrose, Aki, Sexton, Van der Flyer, Ryan and Furlong. In short, the future is suddenly Rose again.
even though? However, Ireland are reaching out and energizing for the World Championships. It is not a clich, it is a pure historical fact. It seems almost impossible for a team like the Greens to not reach the semi-finals of the World Cup in the last 20 years.
Yet, if the green lie is left to its own devices, it is impossible to repeat it this time. Because they have accurate and glorious names and surnames: Sexton, Murray, O Mahoney, are still the pillars of the team (especially the first one) but what can they contribute in two years? Without them, it would probably be the same Ireland of Byne and McGrath (or Marmion)? To win a World Quarterfinal, yes, that’s enough. The problem is whether Ireland will find the All-Blacks or France in the quarter-finals.
Seven days later an XV reduced the scope of Irish victory through a fierce competition. Let’s see, there are still two years left and there is a lot of rugby to play before the World Championships. By the way: If you have not already done so, mark Saturday, July 2, 9, 16, 2022: Ireland will play three Tests in New Zealand. Inevitably.
