    "Next time it's a free kick"

    Are World Rugby rushing through a change to the rules right now? Is there a crisis meeting going on in the stands and Wayne is waiting for the word that the rules have changed.


    If it's a free kick in 5 minutes it's a free kick now.

    Wayne Barnes. Riding Irish teams since 2006

    And Murray is off.

    6 minutes.


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


    It's great seeing Murray actually snipe from the base of the ruck again.

    Lovely wide pass from POM there, Murray with the half snipe before. We're trying in the backs, just not pulling it off

    lot of irish receiving the ball while standing still. or am I imagining that


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,712 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Murray not doing many favors to his runners with some of those passing from rucks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,805 ✭✭✭leakyboots


    Ah Josh, not his day today so far


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,530 ✭✭✭Car99


    And we're playing exactly the same as we did in late 2020

    Has Murray anything in his arsenal except mediocre box kicks.

    “Has James Lowe anything in his arsenal except mediocre runs?”

    Is that how this works?

    Seeing that too. Terrible shape at times.

    ACL for Lydiate. Very tough.

    At least his mediocre rush retains possession.

    Brutal stuff from Earls.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 877 ✭✭✭jk23


    Wayne Barnes reffing as well...it's going to be one of those days


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,760 ✭✭✭realhorrorshow


    Porter has had a brilliant first ten minutes. Fast approaching world class status.

    Best ref in the business

    I was not happy when I saw the backrow selection for this game. Rhys ruddock had to be in the match day 23 for me. Hopefully I'm proved wrong

    Calling use it is utterly meaningless if you don't call for a free kick when the 9 proceeds to not use it

    Yes he also has that slow-motion trick he does at the base of a ruck.

    Barnes is probably the best referee in world rugby right now. What's the problem?


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,110 ✭✭✭✭Utopia Parkway


    Earls tried to catch that with his finger tips. Not sure why he didn’t get under it. Must have lost flight of the ball.


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


    Strapping up Lydiate. Thats bonkers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,712 ✭✭✭✭bilston


    Some mad negativity on here after 10 minutes.

    I think Ireland are playing well. Murray and Ringrose going well, Stander and Porter too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,712 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Ireland showing some good shapes so far, managing to create space out wide. Keenan could've done better there with the ball, should've straightened a bit more to check the line


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 618 ✭✭✭Arduach


    The contrast with the speed the Scots moved the ball yesterday.

    The Murray/Sexton combo is 3 years past its sell buy date.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,029 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC


    Lots of unforced errors from us so far

    Need to clean that up

    How little trust must the coaches have in Navidi.

    My pet peeve this game so far is, he's called "Use it" twice now and both times he's allowed seven or eight seconds to actually use the ball.

    He is the best ref at the moment though, for sure, you're right.
