    Has to be a yellow card now.

    Should be a try.

    Brown high tackle. Penalty try surely


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


    So close, marginally out.

    England slowing down every ruck though. Itoje was just laying on the ball at the last ruck, took #9 about 30 seconds to dig the ball out.

    Seatbelt tackle from Brown there surely

    Have to say, knee was definitely in touch before he grounded it.

    But Italy are really putting it up to England here.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 24,744 Mod ✭✭✭✭Podge_irl


    They seemed too focused on the touchline to notice the tackle...


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


    He technically didn't touch the white line with that divit of grass stuck to his knee :pac:

    Italy been their own worst enemies again here. The BP try for England was a lesson in how not to play international rugby. The Italian lineout continues to be a shambles in attack and defence.

    Try being given saved England there - would have been a yellow for the maul infringements otherwise

    England certainly getting some luck from the ref.

    What 5 penalties at least within a few meters of their own goal line? They need to improve massively before they play anyone else.

    This match is a cracker!


  • Administrators Posts: 53,056 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭awec


    If Itoje jumped into the tackle is that not a penalty to Italy?

    Yh should be


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,745 ✭✭✭laugh


    Robshaw was nowhere near supporting himself there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,876 ✭✭✭✭Interested Observer


    England did that exact thing in the maul to Italy twice in the first half, not penalised.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 24,744 Mod ✭✭✭✭Podge_irl


    Bizarre that Italy get a warning before England really.


  • Site Banned Posts: 12,341 ✭✭✭✭Faugheen


    Itoje grabbing Parisse in the air at that last line-out...


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


    Brilliantly Parisse.

    Arrogance from England, the penalty would have put the, 15 in front with almost 10 mins left.


    Doesn’t matter, they’ve scored now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,872 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203


    Raynal very harsh on italy. England gave away 4 or 5 penalties within 10m of their own line and no warning

    Why do referees seem completely reluctant to penalise Itoje?

    Killeen the ball by his own line, all over Parisse at the line out and nothing said.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,723 ✭✭✭nice_guy80


    ara here

    blatant forward pass in that build up.

    England get away with murder


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,250 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    Simmons has a 2nd try.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,699 ✭✭✭The Pheasant2


    Can feel my blood pressure rise just slightly every time Quinlan says "Vunipolo".


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,176 ✭✭✭✭ednwireland


    Simmons looks like a find


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,250 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    That was quick for England. Try #7 for them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 956 ✭✭✭Scythica


    was irritated I dropped Watson in fantasy, glad I got Simmonds though


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,489 ✭✭✭Ardillaun


    Grandad here with my usual gripe about the line out. At 30:30, the ref tells Ghiraldini to stay in the middle but as soon as he turns round the hooker takes a step to the right and throws the ball over his own team. It’s obvious, the commentators see it and yet the touch judge does nothing.

    a jolly good thrashing. o shea not really improving them.
