Ah they are. They're not giving us any space. Most of our errors are forced.
They're not really. It wasn't defensive pressure preventing Kearney being a half yard back off that.
Yeah it’s mostly us being shit
They're suffocating us defensively. I know we've made some shit errors but there is still plenty of forced errors from pressure.

Risk the All Black's will be undercooked for the semi? This is like a tier 3 nation got invited into the quarters.

Clearly the experiment isn't working out and we need to go back to the tried and tested.














Sub out Sexton and bring in Carty. :thumbup:

Ireland needs to slow the game down and tighten up in the second half,just play 9 man rugby.

18 months too late for this Ireland team. Both Wales and England bullied them physically in the 6n.

This is how we've been for this RWC most of the time. Not good enough.
We've been off the boil at other RWCs/tournaments and pulled out a big performance when an occasion demanded it. We've barely turned up at this RWC. It's like we got onto the plane after 20 v Japan.

Ireland have a maul going forward and they choose then to pass it out to perform the same backs move that isn't working.
