POC's interview.

I missed O' Connells interview but heard some say that he criticised Pearson in it. Can anyone give the jist of it there.

he wondered about some of the penalties awarded against Ireland. That's what I took from it.

In fairness, Pearson had the worst performance out of everyone on the pitch.

I agree that Pearson had a bad game but in the interest of fairness Ireland got a big break when Healy didn't get a yellow. Case of swings and roundabouts.

Seriously though, I thought PoC was absolutely gutted when been interviewed. That's what stood out for me.

watched that again and i'm pretty sure Darcy came straight through the ruck.

Pearson blew us off the park, no doubt about that.

Penalty was for offside before the ruck.
When the ball is passed you can see him out of the line and then he tackles the man and then comes through the ruck.

He's not part of the ruck because he never bound on to anybody, just wandered through the middle - offside. Given that that incident was let go, I thought that Healy's 30m offside had to be a card.

On the other hand, I counted three penalties that went against us that should clearly (imo) have gone the other way - two in the immediate lead up to France's try.
