    Nice period of possession there but you get no sense they're going to score at any point.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 27,836 ✭✭✭✭ ThisRegard


    Some good and hard tackling by the Chiefs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Very bright start by a number of guys. Best really getting involved. Haskell, Daly and Nowell all starting brightly.

    The MWM is looking hungry.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,271 ✭✭✭ F34


    Laidlaw is truly awful at 9 slow and ponderous at every ruck really awful to watch.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,564 ✭✭✭ RugbyLover123


    Gareth Davies will improve this team when he comes on

    Marler possibly in the bin for that


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,716 ✭✭✭✭ Interested Observer


    Idiotic from Marler. It hurts my head how stupid that was.

    Looks like he's injured the guy to boot, good going Joe.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,899 ✭✭✭✭ BBDBB


    Henderson is everywhere this morning

    Marler is gonna take a card for that

    Should be a yellow.

    Stupid tackle deserved yellow


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Marler could get cited for that as well as the yellow card. That looked completely deliberate.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,525 kilns


    At least Marler has made an easy decision for Gatland there with regard to his test place
    Henderson having a stormer so far

    And the rugby world weeps.....

    The discipline of the midweek side has been a huge issue in this tour. Multiple brain dead penalties conceded repeatedly.

    He never seems to run either!! just walks from one ruck to the next. There was a few phases in the 22 where the ball was presented really aggressively for quick ball. And Laidlaw just was watching the ball and walking to the ruck, no urgency whhatsever. so frustrating to watch.

    In fairness, he has been pretty much an ever present in the Scottish 23 over the past season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,010 ✭✭✭ leakyboots


    Great scrum


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,978 irishbucsfan


    That was poor from Daly


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 33,066 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pickarooney


    I barely know any of the Chiefs side today.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Stander having his best carrying game of the tour but probably too little too late at this point.

    Could bode well for the later tests, though.

    You'd have to this he's 5th choice at least and it'd be very surprising if only 4 back rows get capped.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,375 ✭✭✭✭ molloyjh


    Can't watch as I'm in work, but just caught a clip of Marlers late hit. I mean there's stupid and then there's that. He didn't even set himself for the "tackle" until after the ball was gone.

    Looks like Haskell is giving Marler a bit of a hard time over that tackle. Judging by my test quality lip reading abilities.

    Just to remind everyone. Joe Marler is a Lion ahead of Cian Healy. This is planet earth in 2017.
