    Slow poke? Never heard that, is that Canadian because if you look at the tournament it's currently Ireland 1 Canada 0 😉

    We say slow coach.
    Your talking about a silly chess match trev, give your head a shake!

    How would Ireland do against Canada in Hockey for example?

    Well if a chess match is silly then your almost 500k moves on the site sure are idiotic.

    Field hockey I fancy Ireland, Ice... we don't like the ice. Google Hurling and Gaelic football, that's what we play.

    It isn't that you don't like ice you can't play hockey, hell we are playing it as soon as we can walk.

    Yea most of my moves are silly I do agree, but my Clan are happy about my 1500 plus wins for the Clan! 😛 😉 Obviously a few people were making even more idiotic moves than I was! 😉

    You can keep your hockey, we'll kick your ass at the sports the rest of the world care about, soccer, rugby, cricket. Golf 😉

    On a serious note, we have a hockey team in Belfast competing well in the UK league, it's mostly made up of players neither not good enough or now too old to play in the NHL but there's no way for kids to play it and learn. We only have a few ice rinks and they're just for skating to my knowledge. Thankfully our rivers, lakes and ponds aren't frozen for 8 months of the year 😛

    Edit: Well your sandbagging is not worth talking about to win the clan games.

    LOL@ sandbagging....show me evidence of my sandbagging trev!!!

    No one has been able to do so yet, and that will continue.

    I am not so sure about Golf, we got a few pretty good Pro golfers on the circuit now. Our Canadian Soccer Team keeps improving the day will come, then we can throw you a crying towel! 😉 😛

    True we have better coaching over here and in the U.S.A. Russia, Sweden, Finland, all starting from novice up into the pro's, I know I am missing some countries but these are 5 of the Major ones. Some of the kids are together from novice right up to the World Junior Championships. We had 19 draft pick on this Years team and still lost to the U.S. who have improved vastly since the late 70's.....Just kept improving each year. Gold U.S.A. Silver Canada

    I dare say Ireland could beat Canada in hockey. Ice hockey obviously not, but hockey itself? Yeah, they'd have a shot. Of course, neither of them could beat India or Australia, let alone the Netherlands!

    Well the woman’s hockey team won the World Cup I think it was quite recently but both the woman’s and the men’s team had to play Canada to qualify for the Olympics, Canada bribed the ref and won both matches, I think the woman’s team lost on penalties but I’m not sure, they were both close I recall. So yes, it was a once in a lifetime thing but possible to beat the top sides.

    Thank you, slowly getting crushed in the second game so the favorite most likely stays in the tournament, hopefully he plays ghost next 😉

    A shame you continue to make unfounded false accusations!

    Maybe he’ll accept a bribe to throw the game, you know what those Canadians are like.
