    Still irrelevant / unnecessary

    Why?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    No way England were back on the line from the quick tap penalty. Missed by ref and TJ

    Mako especially just got up and made a tackle.

    Italy hanging in there, they look like they’ve got a team though.
    England will crank through the gears though

    Muscular dystrophy. And it's for the charity he helps as well as the young boy.

    It raises awareness, puts a smile on very ill kids faces. Don’t be such a killjoy

    Kicked straight out, does that not mean they need to take the lineout?
    It's only a free kick not a penalty, and he tapped it first, so no.

    Not a bad showing from the Italians despite a horrific first quarter.
    England will still win it in the 4th but it's good to see Italy at least still competitive

    The chap should be commended for promoting a charity which does a lot of good work.

    Hardly irrelevent and very much not unnecessary

    He tapped but it was a free kick and not a penalty anyway.

    Why the need to tell the world he does charity work with hand signals?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,719 ✭✭✭✭bilston


    Italy showing a lot of aggression in the collisions. They also seem to have a bit of pace out wide.

    Some of England's handling has been very impressive in midfield between Ford, Farrell and the forwards.

    I expect England will pull away and win by 20+ points.

    He isnt telling the world. Hes telling those who care. Not those of you who dont.

    Its called raising awareness. Like why have a guy with a high profile as patron if he isnt going to use that profile to raise awareness

    Its why many charities are only too happy to have patrons such as Farrell or Brian O'Driscoll who use their positions to help them fund raise etc. Farrell raising awareness of Joining Jack should be seen as a good thing unless your a sad pathetic person

    That Celtic-tigeresque permanent tsb mortgage ad is beginning to grate on me

    They only showed one replay but I think a tackler landed on his leg and twisted his knee as he was passing away from a ruck.

    You are the perfect example

    Italy need to stop giving England such easy let offs after periods of pressure.

    I rewound it, Italian hit a counter ruck on Coles, Coles went backwards and fell into Youngs’ left leg. His knee collapsed.

    Shame, always forward though


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Allen knew he passed it forward, drop kick the conversion and move on. Why are 10s so slow to do that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ✭✭✭ScrubsfanChris


    And that's probably any hope of a comeback gone. Just hope Italy now don't fold in that last 20 like they've done before


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    I’d forgotten Simmonds was playing. Quiet enough day for him until that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 837 ✭✭✭Subpopulus


    Italians just don't seem to be able to get their heads around lineouts. Whether they're taking them or defending against them.

    Yellow coming for England here, very cynical.
