    How to top off this bad performance? We go back to these clowns on the panel.
    The Maul is Back!! LONG LIVE THE MAUL!!

    Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

    The Bull-Truly irreplaceable, a mountain of a man. 100 caps!!

        Credit to Conor o shea. We made a lot of errors but they forced some of them, he has brought Italian rugby up a few levels.

        While we were poor they were good, cohesive, accurate, aggressive and well drilled.

          Its just the basics ,like passing and catching ,they can`t seem to manage.

            One thing I haven't seen mentioned much is our passing. We insist on spinning everything when a pop would suffice. It cost us a try at the death.

            It takes much longer to gather and then right the hands for a spin pass as opposed to a pop where you can just draw it across your body. It's only a small detail but it would make a difference IMO.

                Several players let themselves down today.
                Totally fed up with Kearney and all the talk of his "comeback" this season. Never want to see him in a green jersey again, but of course, we will.
                SOB looks a shadow of his former self
                Murphy is reliable and sound, but not much beyond journeyman standard -never lights the game up
                Cronin - nuff said
                Dillane improved in the second half but looks a tad lightweight at this level and was often driven back in the carry (Roux was OK)
                Murray and Sexton look really knackered at halfback and don't seem fit
                Healy/Best/Ryan/Stander/Leavy/Ringrose were sorely missed
                Our strength in depth is not what we believed.
                Erse end of nowhere

                  Can't argue with any of that. Lineout and backrow were a shambles.

                    Beirne needs to be there come World Cup. Big game players are needed not journeymen.

                      Back a lot sooner than any of us would have expected!

                            He was certainly bothered by something- don’t know whether it was coming off, or that he was carrying an injury/HIA throughout the second half. He was just occupying space, shipping the ball on. Crazy Carty wasn’t on for the last 20 at least.

                                What did he say? Everyone else seems to think Earls was one of the stars.
