    Poor kick from Hastings, Italy not great so far but can still see them edging this one

    Italy in serious trouble in the scrum.

    Great break from Italy there, should have scored.

    So far this game is what is known in the trade as a cripple fight.

    That's generous aside from the Italian winger's break.

    Standard is very poor so far.
    Hastings having a shocker.

    What ever team decides not to panic, play their systems, and play territory... should win this game


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,045 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Defence completely optional for both sides it seems.

    Hogg just waltzed through Italy there

    Super try


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,249 ✭✭✭✭ Guy:Incognito


    Italy are doing well until they get to Scotlands 22.

    Then poor defending for the Scotland try. Buying dummies and no attempt at a tackle from anyone


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Crazy 2 minutes of play. What the hell was the Italian blindside thinking with the no look offload on the 22 after making the break?

    Poor awareness and response from Italy to the kick putting them all offside. Should have recognised it far more quickly and tried to set a cohesive line. Hastings wasn't even too urgent with exposing it, just happened to reach the one guy who would expose it.

    At last, a bit of class


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


    Glorious bit of class from Hogg, but Italy have only themselves to blame for that.

    I don't know what I was expecting, but this game is fupping terrible


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,045 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Christ almighty


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,745 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    Forward pass I think. But terrible defending from Italy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,045 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    An absolute mile forward


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,191 ✭✭✭ swiwi_


    An absolute mile forward

    No a figurative mile forward I think.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Kinghorn had his half his foot over the line there. Crazy it was missed.

    Supporting your own bodyweight is a bigger myth then the hindmost foot

    Kinghorn is no BOD

    The standards are not great, but I find it fairly entertaining to be honest. One of those games where anything could happen.

    Twice Scotland give up easy possession in the Italian 5m zone... Criminal

    Why are Italy playing in their away strip at home?


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,941 ✭✭✭✭ Strumms


    italy will consider themselves pretty unlucky to be going in with no points on the board, they dominated possession for the majority of the half though seemed to hit a wall once they got to the Scotland 22. Scots have given away a couple of penalties though, that looked quite deliberate slowing down the ball at most of the rucks, we’ll all of them. Like to see the ref being more proactive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,191 ✭✭✭ swiwi_


    Teenage boys at a dance on both sides. A few slick moves but when they have a chance to score they get all awkward and blow it.

    Tradition. Home team changes.


    What an awful game of rugby.

    Home team wears away kit if clash of colours.
