Parra having a laugh, it's rugby. If you're not cheating then you will likely lose.

The only crime is getting caught.

To adults out there the aim of the game is to play not as close to within the rules as possible but as far away from them as you can get away with.

Hilarious that Parra is having a go at Ireland's run of victories. How many have the French won in a row in history? Think it's only 7!! I hope the Irish pull him into the 1st maul of the match to say hello.

Lionel Nallet cast doubts on Ireland's credentials earlier this week and Parra claimed that Declan Kidney's side "cheat every weekend".

Ireland cheat every weekend? I thought only the English did that! what a suprise, I am shocked.

I just really hope we beat France today. Im fairly certain it will be a tight match either way, my prediction in 20-17 in Irelands favor. It seems the french just cant keep their mouth shut at the minute. A victory in their back garden would be nice.

Arrogant French what's new? playing into Irish hand's by motivating us

I really hope we win but i can't see it, we have a very poor record there and it's a really hard place to go and win.
I hope im wrong, should be a close game anyway.

What do they mean when they say the Irish cheat every weekend? And apparently one of the Irish backs said they won't hesitate to cheat again.

What is this cheating? and if they are cheating why aren't they being punished??

I'm looking forward to Parra, turning to the ref and saying (in French) Whooops, I shouldn't have done that. It's against the rules. Will you please give the Irish a penalty kick? Or perhaps he will stay so far within the rules that he is ineffective - every pass will go at least 1m back just to be absolutely sure there is no chance of making a forward pass. What a good chap he is!!!

Nice one boilerbill, a real <cracker>
Will be a tight match though, and with their home record, a very close score in favour of the French, but we all live in hope;-)

Come on France! Allez les Bleus!

@BobDylanBlues - what have the English go to do with Parra's comments? Just playing on your little hobby horse, are you?
