    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

      "To be energetic and self-sufficing is to be happy; but while one desire remains in the heart happiness may not come there. For to desire is to be incomplete: it is the badge of dependence, the signal of unhappiness, and to be freed from that is to be freed from every fetter that can possibly be forged."

                        Weakened Irish side in Paris. Good learning experience and not a tournament we could expect to do all that well in. England sent an inexperienced side too.

                          Indeed. The team with Terry Kennedy and Jordan Conlon is not exactly the same. But good experience to win.

                            4'42 Great solo by Jack Kelly, try under the posts 7-10

                            Issues on the restarts, but all in all another good half.

                                Et c'est fini!!!!
                                Really superb stuff. I was persuaded this game fits to the irish players: Physical, fast, three lungs, disciplined, very good tacklers.
                                Some weaknesss to erase (rucks, experience, rythm of the whole competitioin)
                                But, sincerely, Ireland is quiet new in this universe, and have the right material to compete for the top8. The commentators said 6 players were missing for this tournament and they begin to be worried before the OQT.
