A Leprechaun Stole My Test Series!
Other than seeing the Kiwis crying their eyes out in 1995 there are few more beautiful sights in the world than seeing a dejected David Pocock watching the ref blow full time to seal the fate of the Wobblies – a 2-1 series VICTORY to the visiting Leprechauns from Island.
Even better was listening to the Aussie commentators bleat about the ref, the forward passes, the Irish wasting time for kicks, the fact that rugby involves scrums etc. etc. For a second there I was expecting them to claim “WE WUZ POISONED!!”. But then again, not even a whingeing sheila like Phil Kearns would stoop to stealing New Zealand’s trademark excuse.
Of course, it would be remiss of me not to mention that HIRELAND’s only try was scored by one CJ Stander, a hulking green Saffa who former Bok coach Heineken Meyer claimed was too small to play test rugby. How old Heineken must be rueing his words now! Stander’s hulking green heroics helped Island secure a 20-16 win over the canary yellows, although some other Irish oke called Sexton did kick some penalties as well.
As for the Aussies…boohooo, a leprechaun stole your test series!
