Ireland's last-gasp victory in our opening game of the Rugby Six Nations at the weekend in the Stade
de France, a game it looked like we had let slip away.

America. And they don't wear helmets? No one had a helmet on. And the first video was not
available in my country. Thanks anyway.
That's a pity because that was the shorter video and I wouldn't have expected you to make it through
the second, plus I liked it because the commentary is dubbed. I think this is more or less the same
video (a little longer with commentary) which should work -
PS. That's rugby Paul, not soccer. No helmets and it's really more similar to American football than
soccer, although a superior and more entertaining game. Even WiNH knows that and he's American.
In rugby btw, you can't throw/pass the ball forward, you can kick it forward but not throw it
forward. You also can't score (in open play) by kicking it between the posts unless the ball touches
the ground first, that's why it's called a drop goal.
