Absolutely pointless questioning that decision.

In fairness to him watching it again it wasn't as bad as jones in the first half but it does happen all to often though.


Problem was he was in a bad position to begin with and couldn't make up the ground.

Seanie off after 50 mins. I think he could have done enough to get the bench spot for Italy

Score time?

Interesting refereeing! Straight throws and feeds make it fun...

Terrible game, no intensity on or off the pitch.


To be fair it's an A international with pulled together teams who are bound to make errors and in poor weather it's hard to get a massive atmosphere going

It feels like September 2013 all over again, before the refs stopped enforcing the new scrum laws. This guy mustn't have got the memo

Even before the rain started it was fairly poor fare. Was really looking forward to this game but now just waiting for it to be over

Hate to say it but backline reminds me of Leinster, ball going twenty yards back every time before anyone starts running forward

Keith Earls tackle technique is a bit rusty, seems to be missing the hit, falling off a bit. Defo needs game time.

Not sure about a lock with long hair. I like them with skin heads. Very little more intimidating than a 6ft 7 inch skin head.
