Someone Lost: News at Eleven

A minor tragedy in Cardiff, where Wales win over Ireland. The winning points came from a questionable try. In the post-match interview, the Ireland coach, Declan Kidney shows a lot of class by saying that it was what golf calls "the rub of the green."

I hope I'm not the only Irishman who wishes Wales and the officials well. Rugby has a fine tradition of accepting the decision of the referee. The referee made the best decision he could. Let's leave complaining about refs for soccer. Now, I need to carry this sentiment back to watching Arsenal, where I don't always practice what I preach above.
