Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I didn't think either Murray or Sexton were disastrous (bar the intercept try) but they just don't work well together anymore. Kinda reminds me of the later days with Stringer and O'Gara. There's absolutely no pace when the ball comes out the backline. Felt sorry for Conway, he was living off scrap...

Re: 🇮🇪 Vs 🇮🇹 Fred

Always hard to gauge against Italy but would have thought Ireland would have been reasonably happy until the late score, which was pretty darn good.

We looked very rusty and were hampered by a poor referee and Murray at SH. It's not just that he has a three part pass, with optional dance step.
