These World Cup quarter-final exits never are.  The 46-14 loss was their seventh defeat at this juncture and the biggest World Cup defeat in Irish history.  It shone a spotlight on the gap between notions and execution at this level. Ireland didn't become a bad team overnight, so…

Rugby James Ryan and next Ireland generation must wait to exorcise World Cup demons
