fudge. Ireland are frozen with nerves. NZ are just exploiting it. When the Irish players shake off the fear and start playing then there will be a game.
They need this from their uh... quarterback.

Ireland look like England Post 2003. Reached the heights but then an immediate decline. Just pray you avoid your Robinson years.

POM has woken up - 20 minutes later, but it's something.

Now we just need Sexton on the field.

After watching both games, clearly the cards have been put away for the knock-outs.

Ireland are going to have to pull their socks up if they’re going to progress further than the quarters this time.

Ireland backs think cutting back into the AB forward traffic is a good plan?

So if the ball is within a metre of the ruck it's in the ruck now?

I'd say the ball was out there, but he wasn't behind the last foot.

Ireland need to pick and go. How many times have they lost it in contact from one out passes?

Ah that's not even a factor, look at his chase back of the intercept v Japan, which was the only good thing he's done all tournament. He's just off on his options and execution.

I think he's been grand from the start tbh. Earls has been total and utter AIDS though.
