    Himeno ruled out. Huge loss for Japan.

    Who do we have commentating on this one? Have to go find a stream, see which one to avoid.

    I'm looking forward to McCloskey & Farrell together in the centre, if they click they will make yardage and hopefully give good ball to the wingers.

    I see the ref won himself some front row tickets to the gun show.

    Stupid from Ryan


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,568 ✭✭✭✭ partyjungle


    What a kick from Carbery. He didn't put much on it but it was perfect


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,163 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    This has been an utter rubbish 6 minutes


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Well that's one of the most directionless pieces of play I've seen in a while.


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


    Around 5 Irish players offside there right in front of ref...

    Followed by a lateral gary owen...

    Great carry from Doris off that lineout.

    Think the TMO will call it back as VDF probably knocked that on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,966 ✭✭✭ eigrod


    Great try


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭ [Deleted User]


    Patience and power.. Lovely try


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,441 ✭✭✭✭ salmocab


    JGP has a had a good start


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,568 ✭✭✭✭ partyjungle


    Director could undo this by showing the line-out again....


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,163 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    POM being a d1ckhead shocker


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,163 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Way too easy

    Very soft try


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,026 ✭✭✭ nerd69


    Why do we seem to struggle so much with restarts internationaly I feel like it's been an issue semi consistently for years now


  • Posts: 0 ✭✭ [Deleted User]


    Dillane & Ryan were both pulled out of that maul far too easily


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,838 ✭✭✭✭ Strumms


    Dickson was way too fast to penalize us prior to the Japan try


  • Registered Users Posts: 97 ✭✭ gallyind


    I’m actually happy here! For the team that was picked this is what I expected. Vs picking players with form, or a few new caps


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,219 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Perfect opportunity to attack in Japan's 22.

    That's very sloppy from the front row.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,049 ✭✭✭ KH25


    Joey just fell off there.

    That's par for the course though. We know he's not a strong tackler and that teams will target his channel. You make a gamble that his creative game outweighs his poor tackling.

    Yellow card coming shortly if we don’t cop on

    The Japs are doing a great job of sucking in tackles, taking 2-3 Irish into contact and offloading into space.

    Ireland are conceding far too many penalties and have no discipline in their line
