      McGrath is not up to it at this level

        Ireland making heavy weather of this, despite the third try there.

          The Castleconnell man once again goes into battle for ireland. How anyone could think he is replaceable with a namby pamby like Conan is beyond me.

            Ruddock playing well and deserved that

              This is workmanlike as opposed to impressive.

              We might see the backs playing a bit in the second half.

                This is very scrappy from Ireland

                  ITV said there have been 65 handling errors in the two other games played in this stadium; that is a massive number and lends some context to Ireland’s handling issues. Thought that was a very good half myself. The injury to Murphy is a nuisance.

                    He's overran the pass twice, once supporting Conway and once supporting Earls. Made no attempt to get behind the man with the ball

                      Very slippy ball and surface. Wouldn't want to chuck it around too much out there, or make too much work for ourselves. Territory, possession and energy conservation are the key.

                      All we need is the four tries and a clean bill of health.

                        Scannell busy in the loose.

                          Marmion is a better SH and has done the job in some huge wins against England and NZ. Didn't really understand what McGrath did to deserve this and still not seeing it. He's very ordinary out there.

                            Luckily for Kearney he just about made it for his try, with a clean two man overlap on the outside. He just had to hand that ball to Ringrose for a run in.
                            Ireland need to up the tempo in the second half - they should be humping a team like Russia off the park.

                              Fully agree, and i would also say Cooney is a better and more versatile half-back

                                And very solid line out work, one odd one, their line out throws looked crooked several times, graces has been kind. John Ryan very effective too, and Conway/earls look dangerous every time they get the ball and hungry for work. Try aside (and he nearly dropped it) Rob is playing within himself.
