    Of course you have your doubts.

    Earls’ line suggests it was straight off the training ground. Conan knew what he was doing.

    Curry almost spoiled it. Not quite the genius volleyball esque move but he created his own luck too.

    Is that gesture that Farrell makes after a kick (sort of pulls one of his fingers) just his superstitious routine or what?

    Think it's the logo of a charity he's a patron of.

    Since there's some discussion on whether it's a move or just heads up play - here's my take.

    I reckon it's a pre planned move. The overthrow is to Conan to draw our Curry from the scrum half position - that opens up space inside for Earls. Vunipola has too much ground to cover as next man inside. Brilliant.

    P.S. England should have the scrum there - taken in direct from a kick

    That was brilliant. Beirne in front of Itoje and Henderson behind him. He couldn't do a thing.

    Did Reynal get that wrong? That's from a kick

    A restart doesn't count as a kick in open play

    Ah don't be so precious, I said fair play if he did. Based on the replay it looked like the English tackler might have made the ball land back towards us, but I only saw one replay. I'm not the only one who thought that also.



    I guess we'll find out in the post match interviews

    Sinkler suggesting a gouge.
    Dangerous ground that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,567 ✭✭✭CMcsporty


    That was an important kick from Sexton
    Excellent
    Let’s see something now Ireland

    Yes Sinckler cheating is dangerous for him.

    I think Henderson's hand was definitely around Sinkler's face. Looked accidental, but there was some contact.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,742 ✭✭✭✭bilston


    Was Sinkler claiming a gouge? Or was he just rubbing his eye because it hurt?

    If he was claiming a gouge then that is pretty poor.

    Well to be fair he clearly got a finger to the eye, but it was an accident.

    Another good Irish scrum

    Yeah, he was clearly told that by Raynal too and he still went after went. It’s a stupid game to play

    Of course it’s pre planned. That’s obvious because of two things.

    Wingers don’t run that line otherwise.
    We don’t score try’s from anything except set piece moves.

    Well that's exactly my point. It was clearly an accident. That's why I'm asking if he was appealing for a gouge

    Can’t complain about the score but this game is a far cry from the first half of the England France game last week.

    Vunipola has no stability in the scrum cause his legs are so far back
