I’d probably take Stockdale out of the next Ireland team. No harm for him until he find’s his try scoring form.

Why? He just isn't performing right now, I'd question benching him for Ulster.

Yup, alternatives are Rob, he's gone now, Addison would be fair enough, Haley is actually having a great start to the season, Lowe only covers wing really.

It'll be interesting to see if Itoje gets a deserved citing for his shoulder on Haley. Would help Munster a lot next week.

Don't think he'll be playing next week, and that's not really a citing offence for me, a bit of shïthousery, but that's needed

Diving shoulder to the head of a prone, jackaling, player. If Botha's forearm push is a red (which it is), Itoje's definitely is red. At the very least, it's a yellow-card bottle-job that should be cited.

Ref in ignoring a clear red-card against Munster shock. At least, it's not a weekly occurance this season.

Conway should be first choice for Ireland, he's been consistently excellent for a long time now.

That was deliberate to keep Saracens honest. And I agree they did it very well. So well that I am optimistic about Munsters chances next week.

A 23 year old busted flush.

You lads are hysterical. His confidence has been shredded, he will get it back like Ringrose has, faster by being backed not written off.

He is not that bad. I think his nerves are gone after all the grief he got. Stockdale is another example of a lad whose nerves are gone. Thankfully the Leinster lads took the opportunity to grow as I did

Billy did fine last night. He’s pure ronseal. Beirne at 6 just lacks power. Think he’ll go well on plastic pitch next week fwiw. Wycherley looked eager when he came on. Thought kleyn did fine tbh. Conditions from 30 mins on were honestly biblical which definitely played into their hands. You could definitely see a plan to play but once it turned into a ball of soap one more score was probably the most we could hope for. Impressed by Haley. Very safe and assured. Jj fine. Murray hit n miss. Was very sharp for first 30 mins but hit late by itoje n he didn’t seem right after.

No way was the itoje shoulder more than a yellow (despite my protestations at the game. )

Itoje Wray and Ben earl impressed tbh. Isekike is a monster!!

Did you have this set up to post automatically? Kleyn was going well for the first 30 mins, was carrying hard and was probably playing his best game for a long time, rain came down and everything went to shit.

The Leinster lads are obsessed. Kleyn was brilliant until the conditions went to crap; kept Skelton under wraps.
