    He's an opportunist for sure but that was shocking from Italy


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,073 ✭✭✭✭vienne86


    That was ridiculously easy for Stockdale. Dreadful from Italy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,117 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203


    Stockdale might overtake BOD today if Italy keep that up

    He's been very poor so far, looks off the pace

    Where did that come from?

    Luke Fitzgerald loves that.

    I actually cant bring myself to celebrate that try.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,117 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203


    Yeah (meant to say his left also)

    He was running at pace against a guy standing still. Would like to see him back himself in that postiion. Think he would score

    That last call against O'Brien was utter ballox. Clearly released.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,047 ✭✭✭Bazzo


    Aki failed his HIA

    Aki still off. He must have failed.

    A poor Ireland playing a terrible Italy. Doesn't get much worse.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,666 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Clearly trying to use Stockdale's height to regain possession from the dropout. Sexton's kicking is off tho.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,598 ✭✭✭✭errlloyd


    Ireland are so impatient


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,149 ✭✭✭mangobob


    Im actually getting concerned now. What is wrong with us.

    And passing...


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,666 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Cronin pinged for offside, but that's something he hasn't called almost a dozen times in this game.

    You and me both
    Ireland’s confidence shot
    Italy so bad some of them should be shot


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,199 ✭✭✭troyzer


    I think we need to consider the idea that Ireland are suddenly **** now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,912 ✭✭✭OldRio


    Utterly dreadful last few minutes by Ireland.

    Really need to reconsider Italy in this tournament. They are cannon fodder for the other teams. I hope they come good somtime but doesn't look like it


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,299 ✭✭✭dublinman1990


    That was an easy try from Stockdale. Pity about the 2 pointer going right & wide from Sexton.

    Possession has Ireland at 58% & Italy at 42% which is fine. But for a team like Italy. You would probably prefer it to be much higher for Ireland in that respect.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 643 ✭✭✭duskyjoe


    SO’B upto a whole lot of nothing imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,666 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Much better from Sexton.

    Why concerned?...you mean we won't get the try bp until the 38th mins ?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,544 ✭✭✭Marengo


    We'll probably get our BP but points differential won't be great we're so sloppy.

    We need a huge score on Italy to have the remotest chance of a championship.


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 7,937 ✭✭✭fitz


    Lads, calm down. Accuracy is off, but we could still have the BP secured by half time... We're only 25 minutess in.

    Stockdale's head was in touch there :)
