    Ireland 19 - 18 Scotland. That was awful.


    Very dissapointed. POC was pretty much the only player who brought his game from last week, he was immense. Backs did what they could but too many silly mistakes and dropped balls and forward passes from them too. At least the general defense was decent, but they handed us every point we scored. I don't think we could have complained if Scotland had have won.

    Agree but we equally gifted Scotland their 18 points - not too often do we give away so many kickable penalties. This team needs to wake up if they want to be serious contenders for the WC, poor performances like this against the Argies or the French will see us coming home early in the autumn.

      Dreadful game. How Hickie was awarded motm escapes me. POC was clearly the best player on the pitch. But that's not saying much, considering how poor everybody else was.

        Hickie seemed to get MotM due to that try save (which was superb to be fair), which the commentator said stood out because it was virtually the only one of the game. I would also say POC was easily the best player on the pitch.

            Thought we were well matched by the Scots. [img]smileys/shock.gif[/img]


            They kept our midfield undercontrol with numbers - their backrow adding to the rush defence around 12 and 13. Ireland should have matched their backrow in midfield to cancel it or else kick for corners and play them in their 22. Deccie needs to sort out ROG's kicking from hand for HC.


            Leamy was our best forward - seemed to make twice as much ground as any other forward on the pitch with his pick and drive. Hickie was the best of the backs, great try saving tackle and turnover in the first half, that rule about touching the corner flag,without actuallymaking any contactwith touchis bollix. Youshouldn't bein touch until some part of ya makes contact with the ground, like is the case with the other 100m of the touchline.


            If we play like that againt the Argies were fecked.
            they call it \'passion\', we call it pride

                Agree completely with you about ROG. His touch-kicking in all 6N matches has been very poor and most unforgiveable of all he again today failed to find touch with a penalty. We can certainly do without that on the 30th. Of course other aspects of his game are top class just please Ronan stop always going for the big one which can be pretty useless anyway as the opposition will only throw it to themselves and come back.


                I agree about Leamy as well.Tremendous player but just one small favour I'd ask of him. Please,Denis,when you'rereceiving a kickoff or other ball coming at you,catch it in to your chest rather than with hands out. To be fair you always catch it and it's not a major event at all but it's just that it would help keep my poor old heart going a little longer.

                    As they say: To take the positives from it


                    OConnell, OCallaghan and Leamey were good. Great save Hickey, and Eddie spoke very well after the game.

                          Ok it was poor, I for one didn't enjoy watching it. That said, we won, we'll take it and move on. Thought POC and Leamy were good, though Horgan had a shocker &amp; Marcus was missed as S.Best was a bit anonymous.


                          These lads were heroes against England, not a great day at the office to be sure, but we'll improve

                            EOS on bbc - "Chris Patterson is the best goal kicker in the world" [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img]

                            EOS cop the f**k on..you need to get your act together..only 1 good performance out of 4 games..nothing but a poor six nations campaign

                            To not give it everything, is to sacrifice the gift.

                              Certainly was.

                              Their 2 best attacks came from kick returns after hopelessly placed lumps into the sky by Mssrs. Dempsey and Horgan [img]smileys/thumb-down.gif[/img]
