    Late change as Halfpenny replaces Payne at 23.

    That's Payne's tour is done I think...he did look hurt last week...I expect a few to out their hands up for selection at the weekend, Best and to a lesser degree Stander amongst the Irish....Lawes has to be a shoe in if he plays well...Joseph is an outside bet... other than that...can't see anyone else getting in ?

    I'm really looking forward to seeing Aso play today.... think the guys a star in the making and would love it if he has an Irish Nanna :D

    I'd say the only way Joseph comes into contention whatsoever is if Davies is injured. I reckon the fact that he was the odd man out from last week's midweek game means that he's completely out of the running.

    According to Murray Kinsella he's missing this due to a headache...

    Jared Payne must be related to my wife.

    Payne is in danger of taking the Jonny Sexton/Eric Miller Tampax mantle. 1 week in, 3 weeks out. He has averaged 9 starts for Ulster in the last 3 seasons.

    Feel sorry for him. He's a critical part of the Irish set up but he has had a pretty harsh time of it with injury over the past 2 years. If he doesn't get a prolonged injury-free run of it, his test career won't recover given he's 32 in the autumn.

    Lions destroyed at that scrum. Poite gives a very delayed penalty.

    How is that a high tackle?!


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


    Henderson with a beast of a carry on his own 22, showing how it's done.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 553 Elvisjuice


    poite should put on a red jersey

    Hurricanes are not going to be happy with Poite.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 553 Elvisjuice


    no offside high tackle and scrum was fine


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


    Poor carrying from Stander and Henderson blow a very good opportunity for points. Both too upright and driven back/held up.

    Laidlaw to back up Webb on the weekend :pac:


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators, Regional West Moderators Posts: 6,715 Mod ✭✭✭✭ connemara man


    Jaysus is Laidlaw slow.

    Oh nice try


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,364 ✭✭✭✭ Del.Monte


    Feckin intercept - just hate them as it always reminds me of BOD against Munster. :D


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 6,494 Mod ✭✭✭✭ dregin


    Great from Seymour to get on the end of that pass after making the first tackle. Class craic.

    Dan Cole did absolutely zero to help Henderson get to ground.


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


    Good intercept from Laidlaw, try Seymour.

    Henshaw off with injury for Halfpenny. Looks like his tour is over.

    That's a pity. The tour never got going for him at all.

    Uh oh, hope that's not serious.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,590 ✭✭✭ CurryFlavoured


    Dan Biggars kicking...asking for trouble.


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


    Excellent steal from Best on the deck.


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


    Good kick by biggar


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,941 ✭✭✭ krustydoyle


    Hope Henshaw's shoulder isn't too serious


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


    Biggar kicking well. Not actually much between these sides aside from discipline. The Hurricanes are miles offside in defence and haven't copped on at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,590 ✭✭✭ CurryFlavoured


    Biggar is average as hell in most aspects as a #10, but he's an outstanding goal kicker.


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


    The issue of Halfpenny on the bench is exposed. A centre goes off and we're screwed with his lack of versatility on the bench.


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 6,494 Mod ✭✭✭✭ dregin


    Lawes reading their lineout very well so far. The test side really missed Best's ruck work.

    Murray Kinsella makes a good point re North. He must be seriously pissed off that in his last chance to stake a claim for a place in the test 23 h has been forced to move to 12 to cover injury.
