Between him and Ruddock for motm, I think Byrne handling the Blues like he has gets it.
Still hoping to see him get a yawning gap ahead of him so I can see how he runs in open space.

Anyone watching Season 4 of Fargo? A bit disappointing for me, by far the weakest in the series so far. I wanted Chris Rock to hit it out the park but...it's kind of gone as you would expect. Too many characters running around and too few of them are interesting. Series seems to be kind of running ...

JOB has good pace as well, there's been a few times he's threatened to skin the person he's running against.

This is a good match, Blues are putting up a fight at least, I hope they can keep it competitive.

Liking Harry Byrne's range of passing. Ruddock again just having a very efficient game.

Are Ireland’s only attacking moves a shite up and under in a desperate attempt to hark back to when it was successful 4 years ago or just give away a penalty? We also have pass to 12, 12 does a slight jig and maybe makes parity on the gainline. Mix it up occasionally with one out passing to 13 too.
