    Idiotic of sexton to go for points, even if he got it now is the time to be working on our attack play, if we don’t practice and get this stuff right now when are we going to?

    We've started well but yet again we've nothing to show for it. POM shouldn't have kicked in Scotland's 22 and Sexton should've kicked a relatively straightforward penalty.


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


    These penalties will kill us.

    Personally think it was the right call. Ireland need to win the match. It was a poor kick. Also disturbed to hear Shane Horgan (on Amazon Prime) say it was at the outer limit of Sexton's range!

    The lion's share of possession......and we're down on the scoreboard....again.

    It's 15 minutes in and 3 - 0 lads calm down

    More fuel for the Stockdale-not-a-fullback fire.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Poor from Stockdale. Under no real pressure but forced the turnover unnecessarily.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,230 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    That was as much a turnover by Earls as the last one was.

    We don’t need to win this match as it’s a meaningless game. And you don’t win matches by kicking penalties. Maybe against Mickey Mouse teams you can, but you think that would work against the likes of nz and South Africa?


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Kelleher isn't the problem lads.

    Something has gone drastically wrong with coaching at set piece.


  • Registered Users Posts: 837 ✭✭✭ Subpopulus


    I am not overly optimistic about the prospects for this game.


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


    Lineout!!! Disappointing, but we've escaped.


  • Subscribers Posts: 36,269 ✭✭✭✭ sydthebeat


    Execution of simple basic skills letting us down.

    Doris ruck, Stockdale pass, and that lineout looked over cooked

    Taking your points is almost certainly how you win against Big teams. Would you be making this argument if we kicked to the corner and got turned over?

    We probably can’t afford to get rid of Farrell can we?
    I mean financially obviously
    This should always have been Leo Cullen and Stuart Lancaster as backs coach. Different gravy


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    Our opposition are more dangerous on our lineout than we are...

    You mean Healy pass? Stockdale catch?

    That last one they barely lifted Henderson. The entire set piece is ****e and it’s not just on the thrower.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,859 ✭✭✭ beggars_bush


    Sexton gone again
