      Yes, It is truly astounding the support that womens rugby gets. The standard of play ison par with watching a Junior Cup Match.

    Aldi has a commercial relationship with the men’s rugby team, but not the women’s rugby team(?)

      They have commercial relationship with the I RFU
      And Paul O
      I presume

      And they used t’have one with me as a consumer

      They decided to pick and choose
      And so have I

        You’re boycotting Aldi?
        Sure there’s only so many floor sanders a person needs I suppose.

        Well, the men’s rugby team & women’s rugby team appear to have different sponsors, so it is not beyond the realms of possibility that they have other separate and distinct sponsorship deals also.

        I think you might be jumping the gun a little bit with your boycott.

            It’s a line from Ireland’s Call. It’s the anthem the mens team will sing before every one of their matches.

            They are listing the U20 matches either. Does that upset you as well?

            I’ve tasted Frosties and can confirm that they are in fact Grrrrreeeeeaaaaat.

    if you are depending on a retail outlet for sporting fixtures you are not really a sports fan.
    How many times did anyone call Ethihad (when they sponsored the hurling) for a fixture list?

    Oh d’Frilly won’t be shopping in d’Aldi so…

    Different sponsor so they’re not in any way obliged to post d’fixtures of d’ladies team Frilly. I agree with previous poster…if you’re relying on retail for d’fixtures list shur yer probably fairly clueless about d’shport and are just lookin’ t’be outraged on a Monday mornin’.

    And no one cares about the women’s rugby really.

    Here I’m not naive about the commercial men’s only deals
    Its business
    And I understand
    And believe it or not
    Respect that

    But that flyer should say. IRFU Mens Team Fixtures only
    Not “Together. Standing Tall”

    And annuder’ting
    I laid my cards on the table here on Friday
    And all but emptied my knicker drawer in front if ye about how shallow my support for Rubbie is

    So save your post angst for LJG

      Together standing tall with d’fans Frilly.

      But shur

      If you

      Don’t want to shop

      In Aldi, or Lidl.

      On a point, however misguided.

      G’wan ahead with ya.

    Brings me back to the happy old days of the anti-apartheid protests and the slogan ‘IRFU, FU’

    If the poster was of just the womens fixtures and not the mens you’d be giving them a thumbs up.

    Ya big whinge bag.

      1. ReproBertie

        And then they convert, just like the men.

        Don’t forget that the best way to encourage the growth of the sport is to mock it at every opportunity. That’ll show ’em!

    They call out the Women’s Rugby World Cup on the top line of the poster. Sure, they could have mentioned some fixtures, but the fact they mentioned the women at all is probably an improvement on previous years.

    Nothing much about the U-20’s there either.
