    Japan will be out of gas by 60

    We hope!

    Very impressed with Japan, putting us under huge pressure, I'm actually surprised how well we're fronting upto it.

    If this keeps up it will be a tight score. Gregor Townsend must be watching this through his fingers.

    Furlong has been poor today

    They've been training like nuts all year. Will see what it does for them

    Giving away far too many penalties

    VDF held in there. Same thing happened to a Japanese player earlier and Gardner tells Murray to get on with it


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,080 ✭✭✭A-Train


    Ah that’s a very hard penalty against Ireland.

    Ireland are the ones showing signs of fatigue unfortunately.

    VdF pinned in there as the prop came in off feet on top of him. Gardner seems to be looking at one team only at the moment.

    Japan #1 holding our player down to buy the advantage.

    Japan opting for the low percentage plays near our 22. They don't look like they are confident they can break down our defence.

    Irish bench going to be important, this could be tight through to the last quarter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,893 ✭✭✭Poor_old_gill


    Gardner was crap last weekend and he's crap again here - he's just a crap ref


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,842 ✭✭✭✭Burkie1203


    Stander having a poor game.
    Locks have been brilliant

    Half backs need to get bit more control, we need to take our 3 pointers now


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,180 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Japan have been good, but our pack aren't anywhere near their performance of last week. The physicality isn't there. Letting them over the gainline far too often.

    Nice kick. Swung back the other way.

    Not the highest scoring match, but very entertaining.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,783 ✭✭✭CptMackey


    Very strange call. Japan players in from the side at most of the rucks


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,763 ✭✭✭Utah_Saint


    Frankly ire have been very poor...almost expecting to win


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭✭✭[Deleted User]


    That's unacceptable at this level, if we went wide to attack the ball fair enough but letting the ball go dead is just a lack of concentration.

    That's every single game as far as I tell


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,893 ✭✭✭Poor_old_gill


    They have lazy runners in the midfield all the time
    Their scrim half has come onto the wrong side of scrum twice when the ball not out

    He pinged JVDF there when he was being held down

    In from the side all the time too

    Gardner is just a shocker

    Direct involvement in the scores aside, Carty has been disappointing. He needs to be far more involved and influential. Handed easy possession away too many times.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,270 ✭✭✭✭Kermit.de.frog


    I'm really impressed with how great we haven't been.


  • Posts: 0 [Deleted User]


    Japanese play slowed multiple times by Irish on the wrong side.


  • Banned (with Prison Access) Posts: 3,126 ✭✭✭Snow Garden


    What was Carty thinking? We should have been in resting at half time 5 mins earlier.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,180 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    This is grim. We look off our feet.

    In the second half we'll need to slow the game right down and boss possession. That first 20 was excellent from us, but now we need to keep the ball off them and grind away.


  • Subscribers Posts: 40,530 ✭✭✭✭sydthebeat


    This game is mad Ted.

    Front rows putting in grubbers.
    Handling has been top notch.
    Offloading and back doors all over the place


  • Registered Users Posts: 784 ✭✭✭mun1


    Japan clearing out every ruck from the side, every damm ruck

    We look out on our feet, James Ryan was a passenger for the last 10 mins of that half.
