Certainly better then Casey.
Yup. Looks like Casey was another overhyped munster player. Waste of a cap

We are playing a poor Italy with a ref who’s let us away with murder at the breakdown
This thread has been more entertaining than the game

Normally they tell them to get off after the anthems.

I like the way Casey sets his feet so he can actually pick up and pass in one movement .
Especially after watching Murray's hop, skip and a step routine.

There I said it
He's great for Leinster. He's somehow cemented himself as first choice for Ireland despite being very poor at international level so far.

Ball deliberately slapped forward by Keenan into the Italian. Just how do they miss that.

He is a huge talent. He is not playing to his talent. I don’t know if he’s all that happy over here or what
The only huge thing about Lowe is his fat arse.
You don’t like a fine Saxon arse now?

I enjoyed the first half, we played a bit of rugby, the second half though...
Only really paid attention to the first half tbf
Couple of decent performances, but have to take them with a pinch of salt against this side. Feel like we could have got the same score with O’Toole, Casey, Byrne etc starting

You feel for anyone playing 14 for Ireland. The Irish backs struggle to pass off their left so the ball rarely gets to the right wing.

Nothing to take from it other than our attack is still shite and we failed to properly dispatch at dreadful Italy.

Having played for Shannon like his father before him counts for a lot in the Irish media. Such credentials make him a forerunner for Munster's next mascot player. It's an enviable position and will catapult him into a career well beyond his means. Just look how long O'Mahony dined out on being Munster's preordained hero.

Casey has looked a bit nervous, still think he could be great with the speed he brings

Baird has lived up to the billing though

Missed where we passed it to him and lost 15m as he stepped from side to side and didn't move forward?

Not that it would have made any difference to the result or scoreline but the ref, TMO and TJ's have all been dreadful.
