Zebo gets a hard time off ye boys. Is he keeping a lad from Ulster out of the team?

He did have a difficult day no??
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Don't know what you mean by "ye boys". I like Zebo think he is creative, however he had a shocker today. He watched a ball run into touch with no one near him in the second half, when it was far easier to collect, try to attack or even kick to gain territory. Did not look fit, he did take a fair bang when a French lad tried to run over him early on.
We do not put much width on the ball and take the ball into contact from standing starts.

I'm joking. Zebo is a very good finisher, like Earls. But he has lost a bit of pace, seems to have a big arse and cannot blow past people at international level. I still like him at Munster, but maybe full back is his best position now.

Darren Sweetnam might take his spot on the wing at Munster.

Thought McGrath had a very poor day today gave away maybe 4 penalties in all?? Also dropped a very crucial ball when we were piling pressure on their line.

We didn't execute as well as we could have today but did enough to get over the line and in truth bar the first 20 mins or so we were rarely in danger.

As suspected the result against Scotland was an anomaly more than something we should come to expect (serious amount of over reacting I think we'll all agree), but the autumn and the last 2 matches will all be for nothing if we don't beat Wales. For this teams progression I think it's vital we take it down to a winner take all match agains the English. I really fancy us in that scenario so hopefully all goes well in Cardiff!
