    Lions make a heap of substitutions but it's *just* Farrell that is having an impact ay!!?


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,805 ✭✭✭✭ whatawaster


    Not that it was going anywhere anyway, but that is Sexie's tour done for sure.

    It's really hard to know if people are being serious or not

    I thought best went very well apart from one crooked lineout had at least 2 good clean turnovers I think a third was knocked on after he won it in the first half. He really does add so much around the field and at the breakdown when he's going well!

    Babaas Miles offside all the time

    Plenty clearly delighted to see Sexton supposedly fail, some having a bit of fun.

    Timing has been off alright, just not sure how can say he was one of Lions "good" players

    Because he was responsible for most of the line breaks in the first half and put himself around the pitch.

    He is playing like a drain lately. Farrell has been excellent consistently for months. There was never a contest. Injuries can alter cases, but otherwise, Jonny's place for the midweek games, other than giving enough time to Biggar to get game time for his spot on the test bench, is assured.

    It's not the end of Sextons tour but it's not good for him that Farrell can come on and immediately have a bigger impact than he had all game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,978 ✭✭✭✭ irishbucsfan


    Sexton was certainly poor. He'll be very frustrated seeing the try go in as soon as he came off.

    Needs a much better performance next time out

    Both sides are defensively.

    "lately" is really only the Scarlets game, which is about as far back as many people's memories go obviously

    Gatland and Laidlaw off, Lions should get about 4 more tries and win handy now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,577 ✭✭✭✭ molloyjh


    So I missed most of the first half, but how has AWJ gone? Haven't seen a huge amount from him in the 30 mins I've seen.

    ?? Who is delighted to see Sexton fail?
    He, along with alot of players, hasn't had a good game
    People are so precious about their favorite players
    I love Henderson but he was been poor

    Webb on now and we'll open them up imo. Laidlaw way too conservative in his decision making.

    Sexton was fine. Did nothing dramatic but distributed and tackled well. Teo having a good game because Sexton is putting him into space.

    I dont think he is going to get one. The swing into the test pattern will start on Wednesday, with Biggar starting and Sexton benching. Then Farrell starting next weekend with Biggar benching.
    It was already Gatty's Plan-A. Sexton seems incapable of providing any evidence to refute the contention that Gatts is dead right.

    Sexton wasn't as bad as some are making out but his distribution left a lot to be desired at times. Few lasses straight to deck and others stopping the recipients momentum when they had to stop to catch the ball (appreciate some of that can be down to timing of the run)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,658 ✭✭✭ Kanrith


    I think people are over reacting to Sexton, made a few mistakes yeah, but it wasn't the shocker some are making out. Had some good moments as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,577 ✭✭✭✭ molloyjh


    Kruis is right into the game with a steal? Didn't Kruis come on 10 mins ago?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,122 ✭✭✭ leakyboots


    Thought Sexton was outperformed by Gatland myself

    He distributed well, except for the times when he didn't.

    Yeah Gatland was certainly the better of the two in the first half. Wonder why he wouldn't come up north


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,577 ✭✭✭✭ molloyjh


    Game has started to turn. Baa-baas making the errors now. Lions not having to do much now.

    Well except convert. Jesus.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,058 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    That's Biggar to start the tests so.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,698 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    That's Farrells tour over ;)

    Well this all started with ak. saying Sexton was one of Lions "good" players today - he wasn't terrible, but he didn't exactly play well either


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,213 ✭✭✭✭ phog


    Right call to kick at goal but terrible miss.

    Bring Sexton back on :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,063 ✭✭✭✭ wp_rathead

    I'm starting the Gatland for Connacht bandwagon now
