    Kelleher is poor but wtf is Ryan at calling to the back and the middle?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,212 ✭✭✭Former Former Former


    Kelleher just isn't ready. No two ways about it.

    Absolutely awful from Farrell who isn't up to this level at all.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,047 ✭✭✭Bazzo


    Is the issue Kelleher or the lineout?

    Kelleher


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,121 ✭✭✭Spore


    Other than line out we're not that bad, some inaccurate kicks but good play otherwise. We just need to stem the tide now and build momentum

    Excellent crossfield from Farrell, not a whole lot Keenan could do bar grow a few inches.

    Other than catch it I suppose.

    Boys and men.

    One team is professional enough to have a stable set piece.

    The other isn't.

    And it's a coaching issue as much as the players.

    If you can't do the basics, it doesn't really matter what else you can do.

    He isn't..not by a country mile.. but that's an argument for a different day

    He probably is though. Has the best open field game of all the available hookers and his throwing is pretty much the par with others as well. We've had lineout problems with Herring, Scannell and Best in the past as well. It's far more than just the hooker.

    How was POM the closest to him going over the line, he was still in the air when the English got the ball?

    Lowe is in the background jogging

    Very impressive chasing back by POM.

    Lowe finding things a bit of a step up today. How was a flanker who isnt known for his speed the closest chaser?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,390 ✭✭✭touts


    How the hell was Peter O'Mahony the one closest to May after running 100m. Where are all these speedy backs we're supposed to have?. They would run like the wind if it was a potential try at the other end. Need to put the work in at both ends lads.


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


    Stupid one out carries to static ball carriers as always.

    How was POM the closest back to May, where was Lowe?

    Hooker. Too high.
    First line out was crooked. Definitely not Best.

    Overhead showed him taking a straight line back.

    We’re being bullied.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,098 ✭✭✭UAEguy2020


    Lineout for ireland, that means try number 3 for England is coming ofcourse...

    I thought that they might put the kiboksh on England's fast start with this lineup but it seems not


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,121 ✭✭✭Spore


    going for the line, hmmm

    How can we not have any test level hooker?

    Herring is decent.


  • Registered Users Posts: 837 ✭✭✭Subpopulus

    He isnt though. Being best open field runner which might not be true considering at provncial level he's in an extremely dominant pack which his rivals dont have. And he's hooker and primary duties are throwing into the lineout and scrummaging.

    Sinkler always good for a few brain dead penalties.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,556 ✭✭✭eigrod


    Why are we not taking the points? Would be 5-3 if we took on the 1st one? Ffs.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,008 ✭✭✭TomsOnTheRoof


    Will Ryan ****ing call to the front!!!

    i don't think anyone really believes he's the best hooker in the country.. not even a close run thing...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,764 ✭✭✭KH25


    Our lineout is a mess.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,181 ✭✭✭✭Clegg


    Suppose we're going to blame Kelleher for that one too?

    That was on Ryan not securing it, not Kelleher before people jump on him again.
