In the end it could have ben far worse. They got one try out of nothing and really smashed us in defense.

We desperately need a ball playing 10.

Ireland can hardly get rid of their coach in this climate.

We're stuck with this for a while yet.

The scoreline was flattering, that could have been a lot worse.

England won the game in the first half and just soaked up a lot of huff and puff in the second half.

Our pack look completely disorganised and toothless from the 5m line.

I'd give Farrell the benefit of the doubt if he was a new coach but he knows these players and the team look worse now than they did at the World Cup.

It's definitely on the players. A lot of them are Pro14 standard.

8 minutes for Billy Burns after Ross Byrne stank the place out for 72 minutes.

This nonsense is very frustrating. Burns isn’t the future but fcuk me Byrne was mince.

Just offer the gig to whoever’s coaching Rock or Michaels and be done with it.

I’d much rather focus on players ceilings rather than floors. Ross has a low ceiling. Solid player, would play a million games in the premiership, but he isn’t capable of the step up. I’d rather throw away a couple of games finding out what the lads below are capable of.

If this central contact stuff is worth anything, Healy and Harry Byrne will start every big game for Munster and Leinster for the rest of the season. Only Carbery can interrupt their development at this stage, if I’m making the decision.

Yes he did. He was a literal empty jersey that Murray had to resort to completely bypass. Once we started ignoring him, we started to get some gainline. Then Billy Burns made a great try when he came on.

He just isn’t very big for the level. Coombes will be the man shortly. Doris can play 6 and do his work from there.

Does Mike Catt actually coach the team? As in coach some form of an attacking strategy, because that looked like drills you'd run warming up.
