    SOB not making many meters in contact and giving away a lot of penalties.

    how can one calm down watching a sh/t show from a supposedly world class team ?

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

    That would be a reflection on Italy not Ireland

    That's an utterly stupid penalty to giveaway by PoM.

    Our discipline is so poor.


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


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

    Im not concerned about the outcome of this game - we will win it with ease. Im concerned about our mindset - this is the 3rd game of the tournament and in terms of accuracy we have almost regressed. Some pretty ordinary performances out there from key players. Murray still looks like a shadow of himself. Sexton mixing the good with the bad. Errors all over the park. Im concerned.

    Decision making not what it should be.

    Everyone's taking the wrong option. Even Farrell there off the turnover ball, should've passed but just boshed it up.


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


    Italy are battering us in the collisions.

    This is hard to watch. We are awful compared to last year.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,724 ✭✭✭ionadnapokot


    Pathetic attempt to outflank Italy
    Zero composure


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭yerrahbah


    Earls got away with one there


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,174 ✭✭✭✭Buer


    Looking exceptionally disjointed at this point. Just need to play keep ball for a few minutes and get the composure back. The changes in the back line won't help that though.

    Kearney was a turnstile there


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


    That was shocking.


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


    This isn't good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,605 ✭✭✭✭Squidgy Black


    Ah lads what the fúck is happening out there.

    We're absolutely all over the place.


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


    That's shocking from Ireland.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,724 ✭✭✭ionadnapokot


    So that’s Cronin starting debate done and dusted

    Would be keep ball on the back foot.. our linespeed is from the eighties

    ..

    Smashing try for Italy. Well deserved


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


    Well deserved for Italy.

    Cronin showing exactly why he's not trusted by Joe.
    2 lineouts crucially missed.

    Shíte. It was inevitable.


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


    Don't understand why we go long at lineout. Just hit POM at 2 and maul. Win the pen and go to the corner.


    Toner badly missed.


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


    Flicking between Tipp v KK hurling. Far better spectacle.

    As I type Italy try. Ireland 6N 2019 heading into 2007 WC territory.

    We look really poor here. Not holding our shape and countless errors. Plenty of poor decisions also.

    Fixing the lineout will help but this is reminiscent of 2013.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,153 ✭✭✭A-Train


    Shambles again, shocking 6 nations so far. Hopefully get all the crap out of the system before the World Cup. Hopefully not wishful thinking


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 643 ✭✭✭duskyjoe


    empty the bench Joe- well done Italy


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,818 ✭✭✭Inspector Coptoor


    Cronin’s Lineout darts are dung.

    RK has defo lost that half yard of pace.

    Now the game could turn into an arm wrestle


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 197 ✭✭Stone Gossard


    Cronin showing he's an impact player..and not a starter

    Forwards are the problem. When they go through the phases we look good, but when Italy have possession we're making crap decisions. Pom and SoB have been very poor in that regard.
