    What's a word for frustrated x 100?

    Itoje the complete player

    It's a pity he's got a horrible (on pitch) character. It makes it hard to like him.

    Murray would be killing us here if he was playing. Gibson park much improving our play

    A new low for the forum - criticising a player who isn’t playing when we are 12-0 down. Unbelievable.

    Great from Earls, feck what followed.

    Did Earls look to pass there when he was clear?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,172 ✭✭✭crisco10


    Keenan never should have gotten that ball. Shouldn't have been anywhere near it

    Was that not just Keenan operating as an alternate 1st receiver? Not sure it's the biggest crime..

    Do we have any feet left to shoot?


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators Posts: 35,090 Mod ✭✭✭✭pickarooney


    Way, way too easy for England. No way to get through that defence just by running into them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,473 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers


    Interesting to watch back and see was it accident or design that had earls in the middle and bundee on the wing in the phase that led to earls making the break.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,205 ✭✭✭tanko


    NONE OF THE ENGLISH PLAYERS WERE ON THEIR FEET.

    Yeah, we're not playing well but that was a shocking decision.


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


    To have any remote chance here we HAVE to score next.

    We aren't. We're putting a lot if pressure on England and they're conceding penalties. It's wet piece issues that's killing us. For instance that was a tremendously encouraging piece of multi phase play. It sucked in defender after defender and eventually led to the break. We just can't convert.

    It was rubbish phase play. It took a moment of magic from Earls.

    17 phases for no gain. We were getting smashed in every tackle.

    Brain-dead stuff from Keenan and then Gibson-Park

    We can complain all day about Ireland but the reality is that England have the best pack in the world and we don't.

    There is a persistent question now to me about how our forwards are coached. Going on a year now despite changes on the pitch.

    He's not having a mare... but taking the wrong option quite a bit and getting hammered


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,957 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Commentator is an idiot, blaming Kelleher for English players contesting the ball


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,457 ✭✭✭Downlinz


    James Ryan is having a nightmare, lots of mistakes and once again showing he can't call a lineout at international level.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 23,055 Mod ✭✭✭✭Kiith


    They are better on the ball, and better off the ball. No chances for us at the moment.

    Nobody liked macaw either, except his own fans.
    It’s not a popularity contest.

    Giving away penalty after penalty.

    That's a bull**** pen again, 6 was a tackler.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,172 ✭✭✭crisco10


    Harsh to give that against Ryan for off his feet. Hè was bounced away from rucj with limited impact on ruck?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 472 ✭✭Kraftwerk


    Roux folded Curry up like a lawn chair there with the clear out.

    But you’d love him on your team, he gets away with it, but he has serious skills.

    that's part of what makes Itoje so good.

    McCaw was similar.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,914 ✭✭✭theVersatile


    Wrong decision to snipe there.

    Also, can we please not use every line out that isn't Kellehers fault as an I told you so when he clearly does have throwing issues?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,957 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Gauzere is riding up with these penalty calls


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,017 ✭✭✭TomsOnTheRoof


    Awful call


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


    Ireland are doing what they have done in every game vs England in every game and then act surprised when they get the same result...

    Second best according to the most recent examination of that question.
