What’s his real weight? Doesn’t look anything over 92/93 kilos

I havent seen him do anything at this level. We have too many average players in the pack. No better options unfortunately, so not a slight.

Although Baird should be in at 6

It's not his fault, he's just an openside version of Kevin McLaughlin, someone who does a grand job as a cog in a Leinster team full of much better players, but isn't good enough for international rufby.

At a minimum Easterby and Catt should be gone. Our setpieces are awful and attack is non existent

We refuse to kick the ball against the best defence in the NH and against Georgia, we go all billy bog baller on it.

Some fcuker(s) need lobotomising.

Wed have to negotiate a job lot with the surgeon though, or we’d be properly bankrupt.

It was marginal, but still.
Fair summary
In a pub full of fans who know nothing maybe but the laws are quite clear these days and it was simply not a forward pass regardless of which team threw it.
As Salanya said it was marginal
Perhaps though your eyes are better than two qualified referees
Being a smug twat only works if you're right and even then it only works to a point.

Are you an actual spastic? The forwards have given the backs nothing this half. Nothing

That is a cancer for a squad and all in it.

That’s all I’ll say on it.
It may be all I’ll say on it, but I didn’t promise anyone I wouldn’t repeat it.

It's hard to even judge the quality of the players in this situation given the coaching is so bad.

Hard to be a successful coach when the player base is so shit. There isn't a fit Lion's standard tight 5 forward in the country.

Problem is we have nobody else who is better. Hope to fudge Leavy comes back. Get Baird in there somewhere. McCloskey and Farell have actually had some nice touches to each other. Problem is the forwards arent punching any holes at all

Why are we so bad in the red zone.

Why can't we just get forwards to carry it with a simple latch.

Why play off 9 so close to the try line.
