What a ref
You have a stronger point here, but maybe keep away from the scrum chat

Yeah pretty much. Hopefully a few of them can sow into them. They have dominated us and like a good few recent England matches against us they are laughing in our faces

Ireland weren’t in the World Cup semi final.
I was obviously talking about England vs All Blacks where All Blacks were physically dominated.

He did release. But he was over the tackler, ball was under his knee. He did not have hands on it, not even close. Then 2 eng players arrive to form the ruck. He then has a second go after May turns and presents, this time he gets May's head and wraps around his neck. He then goes to ground/off his feet.

We get a much better view via the camera than Peyper did, he had 2 eng players in his line of sight.

Irish passing is so loopy and bad.

Henshaw's covering tackle was illegal.

Sexton complaining about the roll, he ought to point out Underhill and Farrell joining the lineout from the backline before it was over.


May clearly knocked that on out of Cooney's hands from an offside position.

I have literally no memory of that match ever happening so I can’t comment.

Earls made more ground in that aborted attack than the rest of the Irish backs thus far.

Eh? May was onside, he didn't run forward until the 9 had the ball and took a step.
