We've Translated This Irish Rugby Announcer's Match-Ending Call For Those Not Fluent In Batshit-Crazy-Speak

RTE Radio's Michael Corcoran is a longtime rugby commentator who apparently has not seen many a finish quite like Saturday's Munster-Northampton game in his day. So we understand that he is excited. We do. It sounds very exciting! We just don't understand a word of what he's saying. (Or, to be honest, what the hell is going on here. Our rugby correspondent's glossary and position guide might be of help to those interested.)


But AJ's attempted a phonetic translation of the madness for you, because it's important that we understand other cultures. The clip first plays on its own, and the subtitles begin at the 1:10 mark. WAHPA-GAL-PUH-GOAL, everybody!
