    What was Murray at?

    This is exciting the same

    Looked like a knock on in there as well

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

    Was there not an Italian knock on there?

    Why haven't they looked?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,316 ✭✭✭kevohmsford

    Italy have wanted this more so far. Nice try.

    That Italian scrum half is damned good.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,281 ✭✭✭✭Beechwoodspark

    Pathetic from us. We are half asleep

  • Registered Users Posts: 174 ✭✭mr_cochise

    Take Murray off please

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,175 ✭✭✭✭Buer

    Do we have a back row on the field?

    Conor Murray is a genuine concern at this point.

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

    Awful from Ireland but surely ref should have had a look at that push?!

    There was

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,725 ✭✭✭ionadnapokot

    Utter Utter garbage from Ireland
    Murray needs to be be subbed
    Can’t believe it has come to this for him

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

    Seriously, how was the push on Earls without the ball not a penalty??

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

    Jesus wept.
    So much wrong there, Murray throwing a hissy fit instead of tackling the counter ruck.
    Kearney fluffing around.

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,266 ✭✭✭✭lawred2

    Can't understand why Italy can't coach a kicker.

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

    Dillane back on. Henderson made an impact. He'll be on again.

    Pretty sure there was. But director tactically didn't show it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,261 ✭✭✭Thrashssacre

    How was that allowed after earles is just taken out while first in line to get the ball?

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

    Murray's going from the poor form category to just being outright crap.

    Got what he deserved really.. he was lazily obstructing the runner

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

    There was a knock on from Italy and their winger took Earls out with a push in the back.

    A complete **** show.

    SOB, Murray and Sexton need to be taken off.

    Just dung

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,266 ✭✭✭✭Exclamation Marc

    A push in Earls back and crossing near the end of that play surely?

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 118 ✭✭QuintusFabius

    Sure Ireland always win the fat ***** running into each other comp

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

    Fire and brimstone from Joe now......badly needed. I hope management have brought the mechanical arse-kicking machine with them.

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

    There was an Italian knock on and Earl's was clearly pushed in the back. How was it not checked?

    Cronin is having a mare.

    Is Declan Kidney in charge today

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

    You reckon?

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,009 ✭✭✭joseywhales

    I don't understand, if it's a ruck then you can't pick the ball unless you step over it and you can't tackle the scrum half if he is in the motion of passing. I don't understand how it is possible to legally rip the ball from the scrum half.

    Not sure what Sexton's done wrong here tbh. Problems are with the pack and 9 having a meltdown.
