    If any Irish fans had booed GSTQ in the last 25. years it’d be all over social media. Without a precise date, it didn’t happen. It’s not being holy than thou in such a discussion to say Ireland’s fans are still respectful. It just a statement of fact. Your quick to tar the Irish travelling support to suggest they were part of those who booed in Cardiff. Not sure where you got that idea.



    Many people applauded the anthem.
    The problem is that they've not been called it since 1934. Time for you to catch up really.

    People throughout the crowd booed. Sorry I did not check every single passport to find each ID. T osay no i=Irih were booing is as valid or NOT as valid and saying they were booing. I know of a number who were. THey told me so! Do you really want me to name them?

    The Barbarians have been playing God save the Queen since before I was born. Perhaps it’s time you lot caught up?
    That you know some Irish oiks, sure. Every country has some.

    You have to understand that L'irlandais knows everthing better than anyone else whether he wa there or not. It's a pity you can't put him on ignore but there it goes.

    Put me on your ignore list please, be my guest.

    Would Welsh supporters boo the Marseillaise if the French Barbarians played in Cardiff?


    It would appear that it is normal for Baabaas to adopt the anthem of their Union. When the announcement said they would play God save the Queen, he didn’t mean it was something entirely new for the team, more like this is what’s going to happen, like so many times before.

    In Wales and Scotland it seems quite common to boo or whistle when God save the Queen is played. Fine.
    In Ireland we are worried about our political future. Rory Best wasn’t belting out the anthem, but you can be sure nobody would have an opinion about it if he did. Only a tiny minority would consider doing so and nobody would let them in the stadium on match day.

    For over 50 years nobody in Wales batted an eyelid at WRFU, now suddenly it’s disrespectful. Sounds like the Monty Python sketch on the Judean People's Front, not to be confused with the People's Front of Judea.


    Perhaps Wales has more Grand Slams than Ireland because they bought into shamamateurism earlier to avoid the drain of player to rugby league.

YOu missed the point with Cardiff Blues Cardiff Support generally did move over the the regional side. When we we forced in to taking on the Valleys it was the valleys that wanted to keep their identity and did not buy in. The falling support since then has more to do with the poor on field displays. We also have the counter attraction of, until recently premier league football is the area. But hey I bow to the expert of the union of whom you cant even give the respect to of getting its name right.

    The WRU when Moffat was in a position of influence was poorly run and that continued under Lewis. Still we manage more GS successs that Ireland. So I guess you pays your money.

    NO I don't have dates as I am not that bothered about it. I just get pissed off with your hollier than thou attitude.

    But hey I bow to the expert on the union of whom he can't even give the respect to of getting its name right.
    You are upset/offended by 'F' or Football being added to the Unions name, as it is in many other unions?
