I wonder if Eddie O'Sullivan had any explanation for why Ireland didn't put 40 or 50 points on Georgia and Namibia in 2007. Still no explanation for the poor performances in that world cup 12 years later.

Jesus the snipers are out.

Like when EOS was complaining that Ireland should have won by 40-50 points, I wonder whether he then would have been happy if Ringrose had have made a clean take in the 79th minute?

Knocking their pan out in this game made no sense. Putting significant mental gymnastics into this game made no sense. Putting your body on the lines in this game made no sense. They did what was needed and did it with plenty of time to spare.

I'd agree with most of that but I'm not sure that when the big game comes in two weekends time that you can suddenly turn a switch on and suddenly hit peak performance against either SA or New Zealand.

The spark isn't there at the minute and like you I hope that they can go up a few cogs in performance come the time.

The Italian anthem, and the player reaction, always a reminder that Ireland's Call doesn't really cut it.

What a load of nonsense... they're professional athletes representing their country do they need a song to make them play better??

Italy very close to getting a try then the prop does a spear tackle?? I'd say O'Shea is going mental!! They started the half well too!

2 idiots. 1 and 17 both should have got the line.

Argentina look up for this one. Ref will have a massive say in this one. Particularly how he refs the breakdown.

Lots of handling errors both sides. Red card. Clumsy more than malicious. Farrell dipping down and there is a clear height difference, but thats the rules
