Doris has been top notch in second half. Really upped his game.

I'd love to know how many tackles Luke has made, lots of them have been big hits as well.

He's done the opposite of Ross, Luke is having one of his best games of the season the week he gets into the Irish squad

He stole it before I called tackle.


Then why did you call tackle?

What a line and finish from Doris. Can't work out if Luke meant that pass or not.

That back play looked rubbish until Ringrose came up with that pass. Incredible skill and he's been excellent today.

Treacy has been very good since coming on. I know we have some top class subs but to defend so much in the first half and then ramp up the tempo like this deep in the game is great.

DK has done really well to shut down Ioane. Hasn't had much space due to weather but DK has been a big part of that too.

So James Ryan is actually human then?

We got our backrow selction wrong. Ruddock should've started. Ryan was immense beside the pens.

In the second row Doris and VDF both got to grips with them and started to dominate.

DK was solid. Luke was really good and my MOTM.

Bench front row made a huge impact.

Ross Byrne was poor. Looked ponderous. Not the performance he would've wanted in this particular game.

1 try and only 22 points conceded in our three away games so far. Not to shabby.

Glad thats over. Benetton are dogged but utterly toothless in terms of attack. Leo won't be happy with the performance but a reminder we cant
roll over everyone.

Not exactly a vintage performance but that's the first time we've held a team scoreless in European competitions.

According to ESPN he made 10 tackles with none missed. Also top attacker with 60 meters from 9 carries 2 clean breaks and 3 defenders beaten. A deserved MOM

Reckon Murray will be feeling a little heat after that performance from Luke.

Nah, that's not the narrative. It's usually one of 3:

1. We win - the opposition where shite
2. We win by a small margin - both us and the opposition where shite
3. We lose - we were shite


:wink:
