    An England backlash? Or can Italy shock the world Cup finalists?

    Have at it

    I'm expecting England to still struggle a bit to get back to form. And Italy to be Italy. Could be a messy affair.

    for the more knowledgable here, why did none of the italians take the knee and some english took it and some stood. Was this agreed beforehand
    TIA

    Me too, I think Italy will be competitive here for large portions of the game.

    As I understand it. Officially they have a minute silence as a stand against racism. Obviously everyone respects and supports this.

    Taking the knee is a show of support for black lives matter. Not everyone supports everything black lives matter stands for. It's got a lot of political and activist shenanigan baggage. Players do it or not as a personal thing.

    Brilliant

    Great to see a referee watch the offside line. England's defence is very ordinary when they are kept onside


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭ Scratchly


    Great start for Italy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Lawes on all fours over his own ball.

    Harsh penalty. The reason he still had hands on was because England were holding on.

    Harsh.

    Wonder if England 'got the right information' this week....Eddy sprouting **** during the week.

    Ford butchered that ...huge overlap out to his right and he went straight into contact


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 16,022 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Weepsie


    Surely may had a most obvious knock on there


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,305 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Eh, knock on, perhaps?


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 16,022 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Weepsie


    Referee has gone on holiday the last 5 mins. That wasn't difficult


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,530 ✭✭✭ testtech05

    Was hoping they might show a replay. Looked obvious to me.

    Try looked like a double movement too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,269 ✭✭✭ theVersatile


    Double movement on the last angle?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,266 ✭✭✭✭ AdamD


    How could they miss that knock on?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,487 ✭✭✭ almostover

    Joy Neville asleep at the wheel there, obvious knock on from May

    Why weren't the Italians screaming for a knock on review?


  • Registered Users Posts: 747 ✭✭✭ adam240610


    Replay, was a clear knock on, a lot of calls seem to be being missed lately


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 16,022 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Weepsie

    Probably expected tmo to do their job


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Massive double movement.

    Joy Neville misses quite a few big things in the booth it has to be said.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,225 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Ah feck - good few bites of the apple there from Cowan Dickie who's on my team but Hill gets it.

    Big knock on missed in the run up there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt

    Have to feel sorry, refs are constantly saying “if there’s something TMO will catch it” when players are shouting and asking and then you see this. Must be infuriating.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Itoje pinged for pancaking on top there. Brilliant.

    Terrible reffing. Held on the ground and walking on his knees.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Italian 8 is a monster.

    "itoje plays on the edge"

    Actually is illegal a lot of the time and it's good to see refs pull him up on it.
