    I still feel the bonus point win is coming, hendo needs to come on to help with the set piece. We went chasing tries too early.

    Lol.

    Think people are missing out the fact that Murray was standing at a ruck completely unprotected. Noone near it to protect the ball. He could have done better than being stripped but where were the rest of the forwards?


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,325 ✭✭✭Dubinusa


    Stockdale bit in for an intercept on the 1st try. Probably should have stayed out wide?
    If Murray is atrophied in his left arm, why is he playing?
    He's been awful. Each test and he's been pure snot.
    Kearney not showing much today either.
    SOB and POM not offering too much either.
    Stockdale is our best player, imo.

    Go back 12-18 months If every player was fit and in form around the world, Murray makes the world XV

    He is nowhere near that. Like a totally different player these days.

    His form is an issue. Not the only issue but it is an issue

    Nothing to do with my post... ignore the reality as usual

    The exact fcucking thing not to do

    He could have done better than throw his hands up too, he makes a tackle and danger over at source.

    Is this all us or would an Italian team playing like this beat a Scotland or France?

    Ah stop. It was terrible. He's going to encounter that situation a dozen times every match.

    Italy got a bit of luck not to get pinged for a foul that lead up to their second try but at the same time they've put their hearts in to their performance so far and we've been extremely poor so no complaints from me as we don't deserve to be ahead on the performance so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,956 ✭✭✭leakyboots


    Ah Rob - didn't go forward, still should have caught it

    The reality is we cannot ignore his poor form. It's one area among a few where we have issues

    He hasn't.

    That went backwards


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭PetKing


    Kearney lost the ball, there was no knock on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,197 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Kearney and Sexton completely rattled clearly with more basic errors. Something is very wrong at this point.

    All extremely reminiscent of 2013.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,033 ✭✭✭joseywhales

    This is definitely us, poor lineout and failing to execute a kick off and a 22 drop out.98% us and A little bit the ref letting things go too.

    He threw over their head twice by a good foot or five.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,383 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    We are not glued into winning this game at all if Sexton did that bad kick in the restart.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,788 ✭✭✭griffin100


    if Wales hadnt won last night i’d be happy enough for CoS if Italia turned us over whilst still being pissed of. But this match means something now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,325 ✭✭✭Dubinusa


    Still think we'll win.
    France will be fully aroused at the prospect of facing an Irish team in sixes and sevens.
    Our discipline is poor and our error count is staggering for a J.S coached side.
    Not good. Regardless of how the tournament plans out, we have been shown to be limited and when pressed we sometimes lose the script.

    A bit harsh, Italy gave the Scots a rattle when they finally got decisions going their way. They were absolutely harshly dealt with in Murrayfield.

    That went forward?!?!
