    Ireland missing a load of tackles also. new Zealand are great but Ireland abject.

    P.s. Selection v Samoa chickens coming home to roost now. Not picking form players ditto. Sorry but this ain't no surprise tbh.
    Selection failures -

    Stockdale poor
    Kearney poor
    Henshaw poor
    Healy poor

    plus Owen poor. He is in too much awe of the Blacks.

      When in doubt, blame Stockdale

        A hiding may be a blessing in disguise. Serious changes in approach are required throughout Irish rugby.

          I can’t even remember the first try, what was it?

          2nd try was caused by a couple of things previous to the ruck

            Pom and best the only two players, maybe Hendo as well to show up today

            Sextons Irish career should be over now. No point in continuing with him, that failure to make touch was criminal, rookies mistake

              Think everybody is a bit tired of Joeball, most especially the players.

              I mentioned the other day it doesn't feel like a crusade this time around, I think I now see why

              It's the same game plan for 4 years and it's stopped exciting or interesting the fans.

                Let's get Tony Brown as attack coach!

                  Well he’ll never blame Kearney.

                    "Luck of the Irish", who ever came up with that expression had a sense of humour.

                      No point blaming anyone but ourselves. Awful game plan and selection. Farrell needs to get rid of Kearney, Henshaw and Henderson.

                          Nigel is doing his job well enough. We are not.

                            This is very poor stuff. The All Blacks haven't been anything special at all. I think we would be 20 points down against any of the quarter finalist remaining.

                              On the beebs international and Sky News, they debate about the Good Friday agreement, and we assist to a Bad Saturday inconvenience... 0-22 points, 0-3 tries, that's a mare.
                              The Scots (originally Irish, but by now Scotch) were at this time inhabiting Ireland, having driven the Irish (Picts) out of Scotland; while the Picts (originally Scots) were now Irish (living in brackets) and vice versa. It is essential to keep these distinctions clearly in mind (and verce visa).

                                Come on Ireland. I know we can’t win.. I know Nige has fancied them. But dig deep and fight for that Jersey.
