Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Sexton still has the vision, at times he can still make a great break, and in the last match he even had some good pace, to be fair to him. But also in his last match: Leinster were attacking in the opposition 22, moving the ball across the line, and Sexton never even saw the ball pass him by as he ...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

And lumping Murray and Sexton together is just lazy,Murray is playing a lot closer to his best than Sexton is. It wasn't a lazy lump, just a focused example, also as the halfbacks are the main decision makers on the field, and both haven't played their best in recent years. I'm happy to concede tha...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I think POM has played better this autumn than he has in the previous 12-18 months. But selecting him at 7 for Ireland sums up the conservative nature of Irish rugby. It's not like this team is full of rookies who'll be quivering with nerves, and we're desperate for POM's experience, and there shoul...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I don't get this thing with POM at 7. There is no mobility in that backrow. Sad day when you're depending on a lock for mobility and jackalling. And screw Harry Byrne for getting injured when he could start at 10, and at least give us an excuse to rant at Sexton starting at 10. Not that Sexton will ...

I thought the ref and TMO were all fine, except for 2 instances: 1. The swinging arm rubbish. 2. The penalty against Coetzee that ultimately led to the Leinster TBP was nonsense.
