Can we all agree he should be dropped for the foreseeable future?
Talk about living off past glories. Disgraceful stuff.
Plus he had Jonny may half an inch from the touch line and somehow couldn’t put him into touch.

We have been completely and utterly dismantled, 30 points plus would be a much fairer reflection.

We're going back 20 odd yards in 5 phases it's incredible.

We are being blown off the pitch, Hendo isn't doing a fucking thing to move the needle here.

Not once under Joe for all the success could we turn it around once the other side got on top.

We'll see now if Farrell is different
We don't have any gamebreakers imo.
VDF POM and Stander are all grafters.
Centres are grafters.
Conway is a decent attacking threat, but that's it.
Larmour is shellshocked, Stockdale. :uhoh:

England’s game plan of kick the ball into space and allow Ireland to make a mess out of it is working perfectly for the second year in a row.

Ireland should sack the forwards coach and beg Plumtree to come back, he would be worth every penny.

They have a team of fired up ball carriers and we don't. It would be truly gruesome if billy vunipola was playing.
