    6. Reduces the overcrowding and increased costs associated with that for Ireland's main cities. There were 400k visitors associated with the WC in NZ, you can have too much of a good thing.
    7. Makes it cheaper for some fans.
    An all Island Ireland bid is very very attractive!
    I wouldn't be surprised if the Scots and The Welsh were the major non competiting countries voting against us, remember when they didn't come here to play us in the 70s when we had an outstanding team, but England, famously did!
    Basically they are brotten with meaness and jealousy and historically both are prone to thuggery and cheating on the pitch!
    Celtic Cousins, my arse!

    Jesus. Where to start. An Ireland bid by definition for rugby would be an all-island bid. It doesn't need mentioning. It makes you look like a hick. And the Scots would hardly vote against a bid they were a part of would they?

    Rumour has it the Rugby World Council agreed to give the tournament to Ireland on the strict condition that they never ever have to listen to Brian O Driscoll talk again.

    No what I mean is as with the great unifying element that we saw in South SAfrica in '95, we will have a great coming together between Irish People of all hues!
    There is a return expected of up to €1.5 Billion according to Dickie, who has said he regards it as a safe investment unlike his attitude towards those Eircom Shares!

    Says the lad who wants to exclude Croke Park as quote " negotiating with the GAA would be a pain in the ass".
