Not too sure why Quinn Roux is on the team. From what I have seen he is mediocre.

Carberry playing much like how Ireland played last week. I am questioning whether Ireland have bothered to show up for this week's game with two fortunate tries. If this was Wales or England then Ireland would be getting punished.

Ireland's passing game has been shicking, there have been too many mistakes made. The passes being made are too risky and they aren't keeping it tight.

The kicking game has been utterly crap. I'm actually worried that Scotland will come out and replicate Ireland's box kicking and beating them at it.

Ireland out of jail there a couple of times. They look leaderless

Stockdale having a great game, going forward and defence.

They have tightened up their passing in the second half. Every meter counts.

Poor enough second half and while Ireland didnít play particularly well given the system failure last week and the injuries this week itís a decent away win and plenty to build on moving to the France game.

Weíll rest plenty against Italy and effectively itís 4 weeks until the next big game which is plenty of time to recover and regroup. Weíre not as good as many believed but equally we arenít as bad as many made out after last week!!

I thought Rory Best had a fine game today. He does seem to have a lot of critics but he is a leader. I hope he can make it to the World Cup.  Also thought Kearney did well

Now that 6 nations is basically out of reach, and complete capitulation should be out of the question after today, I would like to see them giving a lot of the back up a few runs out to build experience for them and to rest a few of the more experienced such as Best, oímahomy, sexton etc
