Ireland Edge Us Out!

Well, the England Jinx did seem to involve me, but this time I was actually at Twickenham. Managed to get a last minute ticket from a friend with a Debenture seat who couldn't make it on the day. Great view from the East Stand...

Just a shame that we lost out to, what I think, were two dodgy reffing decisions - the big screen replays surely showed a foot in touch, but Mr Linesman's flag remained resolutely by his side, and so the Irish try held up - that could have been the 5 points which made the difference. A pity, as I'd have been perfectly happy with a dead "fair" win - this way, we just feel cheated!

Ah well, there's always next year. In the meantime, I did get some nice photos of the English Beefs in action.
