In an astonishing, if entirely predictable, show of ****ebaggery, the Scotch decided to reject the status of nationhood to remain subservient serfs to Westminster. The knock on effect has been for the scotch to request that this match to be reclassified from "international" to "Nation Vs Region". A source close to the Scotch panel is quoted as saying: "of course the Irish lads will be right to laugh when they play our regional anthem...especially the bit about sending them haimward tae think again..... Aye, tae think about how ****ing stupid a region we are to reject freedom" The 3rd and 4th tier hurlers of Ireland (who aren't still involved in county championships) shall subject their annual beat down on the cream of Scotch Shintiers. The difference is pride. The Irish boys can have pride in their country. The scotch, as ever are rightly embarrassed at their lack of pride. It's gong to be carnage folks.... Utter carnage.
