    Nice of the Wales lads to hold onto a few lads there in thge ruck


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,128 ✭✭✭ mangobob


    Big test of character now. Horrendous start and 7 points down after 2 minutes. Lets see what this team is made of.

    now we'll see what this Welsh defence is really made of.

    Can I ask is there a set time for advantage, or is it done on how many phases they go through, ground taken up or where on the pitch it is, or the offence?

    Wales had a long advantage there before the try. Ireland had one a minute later that seemed to only last a few seconds. These happens in most games. Is it at the referee's discretion or is there a point when it is definitely over?


    Ignore*

    Over to the questions thread with this one.

    Kearney presented with a gap and he steps out of it and into two men.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,394 ✭✭✭ DellyBelly


    Heals with a bad knock on there


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,305 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Thats what you want to do. Give Wales a confidence boost at the start of the game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,394 ✭✭✭ DellyBelly


    Feck sake Ringer. Hold onto the ball


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,460 ✭✭✭ Ishmael

    Scrum was great, which is promising.

    One was a penalty. One was a knock on.

    Wales was penalty advantage as Ryan entered maul fromt he side in the ref's view. Penalty advantage generally allows teams to have a go at something then come back if unsuccessful.

    Ireland's was for knock on. Generally only lasts for a phase or two.

    That was deliberate from Adams


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Good reaction after that start.

    Welsh scrum half scragged Stockdale and threw him off his stride a bit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 479 ✭✭ Duggie2012


    Ref playing poor advantage rule on 2 occasions there. Gave no real advantage to ireland.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Mr Reliable with a great tackle. Doubt he’d have the has to catch him later in the game but he did there and that’s all that matters.
