Ahh - my mistake - good point. In that case, Ireland by 7.Gwenno wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 7:57 amIsn’t it another Sunday game?ovalball wrote: ↑Wed Feb 10, 2021 7:00 am Ireland looked pretty decent with only 14 men v Wales. They were very good at keeping possession and gradually working their way upfield. Should be a good test of the French patience and discipline.
You can't tell much from the French dismantling of the Italians - they looked sharp but Italy were very disorganised. Opportunities will be far less against an experienced Ireland.
The 6 day turnaround will work against Ireland, especially after playing most of the game with 14.
My prediction - both sets of supporters will whinge incessantly about the officials - France will edge the whinge fest while Ireland will edge the score on the pitch - Ireland by 5.
Should be a good game - looking forward to it more than I am to watching another borefest from England.
