    Especially as Casey looks the same sort of SH that Alby is- there’s not much point in trying to model your game on Murray, if you are physically/play more like Strings.

    He, like Fineen, made a mountain of tackles and was at every ruck. Just kept doing all the non-flashy stuff that made it possible for JJ and co to shine. Led the team well too, and seemed to have a good rapport with the ref.
    Having a good rapport with the ref is invaluable imo. Not to single anyone out, but it’s a weakness of POM as he seems to take everything personally with regards to reffing decisions that go against us. Almost staring them down at times ffs. Not exactly the diplomatic approach you expect from your captain. Billy is much better at that stuff and JOD likewise.

    Combine the attack with all the players coming through, things are looking good. Not only players coming through but players like JJ look to have found a new lease of life. So many attacking options and freedom means the players are loving the new style. Take a note Joe Schmidt.


    KOB had another great game. He has the best darts in the country from what I've seen and his handling and passing are excellent which I hadn't noticed before because he probably was told to bosh all the time.


    Wycherley has some engine. He had another big game and was even popping up at scrum half at times. He has to work on his handling but it wouldn't surprise me to see him called up into Farrell's first Ireland squad. I think he'd make a good international blindside.


    Goggin continues to impress. Takes the right decisions and is a heads up player. Had a lovely kick that pinned back Cardiff at one stage which Paddy Wallace credited to JJ.


    The whole team played well in tough conditions. The only complaint I'd have is they were not getting much distance on their clearance kicks in the second half.
    I would not be surprised if KOB is starting some of the big games this season.

    A lot of pressure on Nick to step up, but I have high hopes Casey will develop rapidly in the next 12 months anyway.

    That was some performance. As said above Alby, KOB, JJ, Wycherley all outstanding. I really think Alby is being hard done by, hes often the best player on the team & I'd love if he got a contract.

Great to read all the in-game remarks- I wish now I hadn’t looked at the score first, just wasn’t brave enough I think, because I feared a beating, as I think most
    of us did. 5-0 was way beyond expectations- delighted for the lads.
    The boys stepped up

    Well that was some difference to the last 2 years of this fixture. We were organised, aggressive and cute. We gave the 12 and 13 of Cardiff no time on the ball to create anything and herded them to touch. We played with a makeshift full back and manged to cope relatively comfortably. Our forwards were hungry and rabid on the floor and at the ruck. Hats off to Darren O'Shea and O'Byrne on a trying night for lineouts, we were tight on ours and like a rash on theirs. I have to say Wycherly is something else, his work rate is fantastic and he gets better the longer the game goes on. Those Beara fellas are tough f*ckers. Just to say the weather eased for a lot of the second half and Cardiff had the best of it in the first.
