How many losses on the bounce against England now?

Back to the 2018 GS game to the last time we won?

We are going to pummel England. Biggest Victory since croker 07. England's top players are fat, out of form and past it, they havent recovered psychologically from their rwc beasting by the boks.

Eddie is in a mourinhoesque tailspin and just doesnt know it yet.

England Vs England Lite.

A drudgefest of forward collisions and box-kicking awaits.

Ireland's only hope is to out-England the English, but they simply don't have anything like the personnel/talent.

Hello my English friends. I'd like to welcome you with Kay Burley.

If it's any consolation, I'm feeling guilty about it, but hey-ho.

Think if we continue our rate of trying to play this new style of play we'll run them off the park.

We averaged a ruck speed of 1.4/5 secs for certain periods against Wales :lol: and it must have been that but for longer periods against France.

Run them ragged!

Wales V England
kicks from hand 36 v 24
Clean breaks 4 v 10
Defenders beaten 10 v 19
Offloads 0 v 2

Despite the way England were reffed out of that game i saw enough to be confident we could beat France and Wales would get torn a new one.

Should be a splendid occasion.

The finest beef in these islands going head to head.

Good lads from good schools playing ruggers the way it ought to be played, with no Welsh-style guttersnipe tactics.

It's going to be beautiful :thumbup:

Not sure the David v Goliath thing really works when Ireland are 2nd, England are 4th (even if England have trampled all over them in the 3 tests since 2018).

This will be a tight game I think, I don't buy into a full England recovery yet, I think they're still finding their feet, Ireland to edge it.

If the difference in penalties conceded is greater than 5 = Ireland win

If not = England win


The pen differential vs France was 4. I think it will be close either way

If we can slow down the pace of the game and turn it into a right scrap, I think we'll win.

England will want lightning quick ball and decoys off Farrell.
