Ireland’s mixed C-B team should have put at least 40 pts on Wales today. The disallowed forward pass try on the 5m line was one missed opportunity.

After the initial depression I think today actually went great for us. Patchell and Tomos Williams seriously impressed from the bench. Not only have they provided an easy squad choice for Gatland but they’ll be pushing Davies and Biggar all the way for a starting berth. Beard and Shingler likewise r...
