While Japan have been good they have gotten 6 points from dubious penalties.

Keep calm and take control when they will inevitably tire.

No reason to expect us to have the ascendancy when it comes to the scrums.

The Japanese scrum very low and very tight, which makes it very difficult for taller front rows.

Things have been even enough so far

I would say the instruction is to not go after the ball unless you have a very clear shot. As we’ve seen any slight margin of error is a penalty against you.

Rte player just awful, couldn't get it playing, nothing but buffering. Found a stream on Reddit for itv and that has been perfect 1080p without interruption. This is the only rte service I use, paying the license for nothing.

Japan have been quite impressive so far, would love to see them in the quarters this year as they should have been last time, that came down to points difference didn't it? Or am I mistaken

The turnover scrum was a disgrace. Japan drove sideways as speed and somehow earned a penalty.

Gardener influenced by the crowd and the Japanese propaganda during the week perhaps.

His refereeing of the ruck is really inconsistent. Japanese players all over the place on Irish ball. Ireland getting pinged for being held in the ruck (JVDF).

Actually watching the second try again, it wasn't even a good kick. Kicked it into a crowded area and left it way short. That needs to drop onto the line or in goal. He rescued it with a brilliant tap back.

He has the skills to open Japan up but he's staying out of play lot which is planned I imagine. Centres are at first receiver a lot. For context, 23 passes from the Japanese outhalf in that half and 7 from Carty.

A few simple fixes will sort this out. Giving away too many silly penalties. Ref wants to let Japan play cos it excites the crowd and he feeds off that. Let Japan make the mistakes in 2nd half.

Next score is crucial. I think we have been a bit complacent and made some silly decisions. That kick by Carty for Earls at start is not something you would do against a top nation and Ireland must treat Japan as such on home ground.

Furlong, Stander and a few others just don't seem interested in winning the collisions. They're allowing the Japanese a couple of yards every time in contact and its putting us under pressure.

Come up hard and force their carriers back. With no platform they'll falter in the backs. If the forwards can't do that because of fatigue....get them off.
