    Posters "Ireland need to make 10 changes cause we need to give other players game time"

    Now after 5 changes to team "Ireland are rubbish"

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,901 ✭✭✭leakyboots

    Poor from Cronin, looked like Earls lost his man (but made it back to try save) and Kearney grabbed thin air in a one on one as usual.

    Need to calm the game down and get through a few phases

    Very worrying performance the amount of errors and poor discipline alone regardless of score.

    You’d have to think we can only get better post HT. Too many having a stinker

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,183 ✭✭✭UnknownSpecies

    That's what happens when you can't secure ball on your own set piece. Poor throw in that instance but the whole unit hasn't worked today.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,296 ✭✭✭dublinman1990

    At least Italy missed the two points. But still though good lord....we need to preform much better than this.

    If Italy had converted that it would have been the first time they'd been in the lead the entire tournament so far.

    Farrell injured?

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,600 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Dillane off injured. Unfortunate for him, but Hendo is needed. Just a better player.

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,920 ✭✭✭✭stephen_n

    Great Farrell just damaged his arm

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

    Dillane off for HIA?

    When did Henderson get on?

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,257 ✭✭✭✭lawred2

    This much fabled strength in depth is looking a wee bit misjudged

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

    Great try from Italy but all coming from yet another Irish blunder. This is getting very painful. Beer is no longer an adequate anesthetic. I'm moving to the whiskey.

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

    If Farrell comes off, Carty at 10, Sexton at 12 & Earls at 13?

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,600 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Help us, Garry Ringrose.

    You're our only hope.

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,136 ✭✭✭✭MadYaker

    Oh Jesus Christ almighty

  • Registered Users Posts: 204 ✭✭lillielad

    Lads what the **** is going on?

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,604 ✭✭✭✭Squidgy Black

    Kearney just completely ignored the ball there

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 197 ✭✭Stone Gossard

    That ball was knocked on in the build up

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

    That’s absolutely pathetic

    Italy making fools of Ireland.

    Two savage tries.

    What the **** Murray, you just gave up at that ruck

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

    Well Italy deserve that lead. This is dreadful.

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

    There you go. First time Italy have led in the tournament.

    Ireland are an embarrassment. This is like England last year.

  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 7,916 ✭✭✭fitz

    Eh, is it ok to push a player in the back?!?

    I'd like to see that breakdown again.

    We are playing terribly.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,901 ✭✭✭leakyboots

    Much better work at the maul.

    Kearney was a disaster there coming back, so slow. Thought Earls got bundled off the ball?

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,136 ✭✭✭✭MadYaker

    What was earls doing there!?!

    Oh no. We are in deep deep trouble.

    We have just fallen apart in the 38th minute of this match.
