Henshaw may not offer much creatively, but he's already made a few vital tackles in this match.

Cronin would be some player if he learned to throw a rugbyball.

Johnny then Cronin. Good try can’t argue with it but we gifted it to them

Glasgow by many. A fitting end to a shitty second half to the season. Sexton is wrote off unfortunately and I am not sure how he comes back for the last hurrah

Great defender but his attack is non existent this year - we need more at centre

That is the problem with Hogg's punting he needs to wind up.

It's easy to pile on wrt to Sexton, but he seems to be off the pace. He is doing everything just a bit slower, just with a little less accuracy. The margins aren't much, but as intensity and quality of position steps up, he simply isn't at the levels of past years. Dont know if it's age (hasten exactly a lot of game time), injuries or he is mired in quite an extended loss of form, but he is making too many mistakes that are costing his teams and it is worrying for this contest never mind going into a WC campaign.

Right now I'd rather see Ross Byrne on that field.

McGrath has everything to be a great player. Brave, smart just injured too much. Also the flapping at rucks is head wrecking

It’s like you could pinpoint the tackle where it happened.

It's about a minute behind real time, so watch yourself reading on here.

BOD was never poor; his body aged and he just got slower. Sexton is making poor decisions, his physical form doesn't seem to be the issue.

Apart from a lack of consistently in his pass and box-kick and, as Saracens showed, he doesn't always take the best option.. he is an excellent defensive player.

It's very similar but Sexton is in a more influential position so it's more obvious.

Leinster look like a team that have played a couple of draining games in the last few weeks, bench will be important

His pass is decent. The box kick is shit but it’s over used anyway. The less we use it the better.
