    Ref being amazingly tolerant of French indiscretions at the ruck! They've had a warning, hopefully a card soon! The Irish girl's work in the ruck is very good!

      Now they bring down a maul (again)!

      Comment


        Penalty to us inside French 22 for not rolling away was kicked to corner and attempted disrupt went forward for scrum to us which was a bit of a disaster, but a lucky bit of sloppy handling gave us back a lineout on their 22 - only for us to throw it straight into touch.
        Up to 19 minutes now and Ireland have a penalty for hands in the ruck. Briggs lined up the posts and kicked wide. After the restart we kicked it dead to concede a scrum just inside our half. Another penalty to us found touch inside the French 10m and a decent subsequent half-break before a chip throgh was gathered and tackled into touch for another Irish lineout. Not much in the way of penetration but making small amounts of ground with ball in hand before France pinged for offside at the ruck. Briggs successful off the tee for 10-7 on 27 min.

        I'm slowly catching up to live so not reading any other comments in this thread yet!

          A French player needed lengthy treatment and was stretchered off, so am now about 15 minutes behind. Defending scrum on our 5m and France spread it wide with the line at their mercy but somehow are kept out! Second bite of the cherry is successful though. Conversion missed, 10-12 on 31 min.

                Briggs strong in defence after the restart and we are awarded a penalty for holding on while ref checks the video. KO after the lineout returns possession to the French and they kick ahead deep into our 22, which Briggs does well to run out and recycle under pressure. Another lineout and we have a great maul for a good 20 metres before winning another penalty for a great touchfinder worthy of ROG in his pomp - opportunity is wasted with an overthrow though.

                  On 37 min, we disrupt a defensive French lineout deep in their 22 but lose possession soon after. The French clearance is poor though the French 32 kicks out on the full outside her 22. Some more sloppiness from both sides and we still have possession inside the French 22. What looks like a terrible kick ahead bounces kindly for a wonderful try for Grace Davitt just before HT!! Conversion wide off posts though, HT score was 15-12.

                    Now just a minute or so behind - we conceded an early penalty in the 2nd half which Le Duff missed.

                        Strong French attack let down slightly by sloppy attempts at chipping through, but they retain possession up on our 22. Huge defensive effort with Briggs at the heart of the action. We KO and they have the put-in just inside our 22 - and I'm caught up to the live action!!

                        Solid French maul makes serious yards and they recycle for another try out wide.

                            French LO outside our 22 and we concede a penalty for offside (advantage) & then hands. France opt for a kick to corner (and make a popular substitution). However they KO from the lineout and we have a defending 5m scrum.

                              Our scrum is driven back to the line but we scramble to protect & Briggs clears to about 12 yards out. Under all sorts of pressure right now.

                                Penalty to relieve the pressure, offside by France when their maul separated.
