    Missed the bus again...?



    Watching the end of the England-France game in a west Limerick pub, it was quite bemusing to see everyone rooting for Engerlund.


    First to see what has been a rudderless team being steered by the steady hand of Catt; then to see the explosive adventure and talentof the son of the Galway footballer. Nice to see us supporting our neighbours for once, but have we lost out again in one of the up-coming talents in the game?


    Have we lost out again?

    He does seem to have a bit of a spark alright... it was his choice though. We got easterby, maggs etc. [img]smileys/confused.gif[/img] Not sure about the "steady hand of Catt" - he'd a shockin first half - as predicted here, the French had their annual away game shocker, couldn' get over the errors they were making...

      R U saying France imploded rather than England taking the game?


      Only got to see the 2nd half, and for that time England were by far the better team. France were so one-dimensional as to be unreal. How come we didn't beat them 2 weeks ago? Or was it the old French trick of just not bothering to turn up? (happens at least once every year).

        R U saying France imploded rather than England taking the game? Not really they just never got going, couldn't put the phases together at all. Beauxis lacked any control of the backline when he came on.

Chabal had a "Thomond"...

          When was France's last convincing performance apart from 1st 20 in Croker?


          England were not that good at all

            England were not that good at all - Agreed - Tindall was comical... give some credit to their forwards though after the Croke Park debacle... Flood did alright n all

              You think if he had picked Ireland he would have got anywhere near our match day 22? Thats not Eddie's style. I've watched Geraghty twice this season at Ravenhill and he wasn't anything special on either occassion. Saying that another option at 10 would be nice.

                It was a weird England performance - while they improved in the second half they looked like a team who hadn't met before the warm up session. I nearly spat out my coffee when I saw Lewsey throw a quick lineout to himself (looked forward), then threw a pass about 5m forward to a French player.

                I'm still not sure how the forwards managed to dominate the French so utterly up front.

                  Geraghty was probably right about his choice of team - England don't really have anyone right now, and Eddie isn't exactly known for blooding/playing guys early in their career. He can kick, he can run (& how), but he still doesn't know how to run a game. That will come with time; At his age he can only get better. Best of luck to him.


                  Re. the English forward dominance - yes, it was probably a backlash issue. They hit the ground running and seemed to relish the contact. French didn't really want to know. Englsih backs made a few mistakes, but they were not afraid to try something. French backs looked wooden and pedestrian - totally devoid of ideas. Oh why did we meet them on a day they knew how to play? Or was it all down to Dmitri?

                    I think you might have hit the nail on the head there Mike. The little guy who played against us was streets ahead of Yachvilli. Can't remember his name momentarily. One for La Porte to put in his pipe and smoke.
