Yep. Just switched off. Can't do that when Wales arrive.

I doubt you will be 40 up against Wales

Odd game, Ireland probably not happy with that, points difference suffered badly when they went to sleep.
Scoreboard flattered Italy - they were nowhere near as close as the scoreboard suggested.
Very hard to justify Italy's inclusion these days.

1 try from a BP

Ireland 56 Italy 19.

Well either way, Ireland have put more than a half-century of points on Italy for the third year running.


Indeed and that's FT.

Comprehensive until we let them play.

Italy butchered three tries in the last few minutes. They could have, should have had a bonus point.
But alas! they are not close to the 6N standard.
The problem is that they are not showing any improvement over the years.
Where can they go from here? Not sure. :dontknow:

No we won't be but the way we went to sleep worries me.

As does the manner in which our defence fell apart, late on.

Georgia are actually ranked higher than Italy nowadays, and Romania aren't too far behind the latter either.

Well, as discussed earlier, it's a question of long term over short and which do you empower?

What in terms of the eventual result? OK maybe not in the final analysis, but cast your mind back to Wales's last outing in Dublin, Looked set fair, didn't we? Got ahead and were fortunate to get a draw by the end.

This Ireland side is streetwise and they won’t panic. I think they will do the Slam
