    Sorry someone remind the lads that in Union scrums are supposed to be contested and that you do indeed push.

    Absolute tosh from Ireland in the first twenty mins, coupled with poor discipline, this could be a long evening.

    Leamy off good call wasn't offering anything. Heaslip has to now offer something more then heads down rugby.

    9-6 to Scotland but might change now, Scotland shot at goal.

    Goes over 12-6 to Scotland.

    Another chance for ROG to bring it back to a three-point gap. Sounds like an easy chance outside the 22m line, which he's got. 3/3 from O'Gara, and 4/4 from Patterson.

    Scotland 12 Ireland 9.

    Ahh he deserved a try there, awful kick by Kearney and ROG gets burnt.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,044 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    cracking tackle by Bowe


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 36,648 ✭✭✭✭ Ruu_Old


    Great counter by the Scottish.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 470 ✭✭ Craft25


    omg.. kearneys the man, but with kicks like that he's running out into no mans land..

    LUCKY!!

    nooooo waay too close..... :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,772 toomevara


    Great game.... if you're Scottish that is...we'll be lucky to get out of this one with a win..


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,044 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    Relieved to be only 3 behind at the half


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,249 Stev_o


    Id worry for ourselves. Scotland playing alot faster and flatter, they are completely dominating the breakdown area, Barkley having one of those days for Scotland. Needs to be picked up in the next half if we want to win this!

    Decent enough end to the half, lets start the way we left it off.


  • Registered Users Posts: 425 ✭✭ ROVER


    Great last man tackle by BOD


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,155 ✭✭✭ juvenal


    Phew, could be going into the half 9 points down there, great covering by Bowe and BOD?

    Good sustained phases of play there, Darcy just couldn't get the ball out to BOD in time at the end. This is going to be very close, needs something just to open it up slightly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,577 ✭✭✭✭ Aidric


    Some of the forward pass decisions by Kaplan have been infuriating. We need to start putting consecutive phases together in the second half.

    Nah, not the ref...same old story, business end of the tournament, the pressure and expectation comes on, we go into ourselves and the cracks start to appear....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,160 banshee_bones


    Its a small margin to be trailing behind at half time, could be worse, we can turn this around, as long as they keep up that tempo they left the first half with...


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,155 ✭✭✭ juvenal


    Kearney really should've taken that.:(


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 36,648 ✭✭✭✭ Ruu_Old


    This is good stuff at the moment, good lineout.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 470 ✭✭ Craft25


    this is making me seasick!!

    Much better pace to the Irish game since halftime, although Patterson almost got the bounce there and was away for a certain try.

    Still very tight, Ireland need to play the game in the Scottish half and keep the tempo up.
