6 Nations:Ireland v Scotland - An Craic Mór - 10 Mar 2018

Post by Pot Hale on Wed 28 Feb 2018, 11:12 pm

First topic message reminder :

Forget the Tiddlywinks at Twickers, this one’s the proper test match with soaring Scotland taking on their Ivernian cousins.  

Ireland have it all to do on their home turf to keep their championship tilt going, and Scotland have the bit between their teeth to snatch it from them and head into the final round ready to rack up a cricket score against the hapless Italians to try reach top of the table.

Scotland started cold and lost heavily to Wales but now they’ve got their game together, they could be on a roll.  But as their coach has pointed out, their away record in the last decade has been dismal.  That’s the hurdle they have to overcome.  They have the players, the skills, and a successful game plan if they can beat Ireland at their own game at the breakdown.  

Ireland started without a few players like O’Brien, Ringrose, and then lost Furlong, Henderson and Henshaw.  All the replacements stood up - VdF, Leavy, Farrell, Porter, Ryan - and then a couple of them got injured.  But the timing looks good as Furlong, Henderson, and Ringrose are ready to re-enter the fray.  O’Brien could be back for the final round.  

Schmidt has some thinking to do on how he can outwit Townsend - attempting 60-70% possession with constant pick and goes isn’t going to cut it.  Will Sexton have his kicking boots back?   Will yet another midfield continue to weaken the defensive line?   On the other hand, will Russell turn from hero to zero if his looping passes fail to hit their target and Fall into the hands of Stockdale or Earls instead?

Both sides haven’t been shy about scoring, although they go about it in completely different ways.   Let’s see if they can keep it up.

Scotland again making the wrong decisions. All the attacking play minded but simple bad decisions and handling skills letting them down.

Yep Scotland doing the most difficult part but messing up the easier stuff somehow.
Still as soon as they go through phases at speed they seem to find room in the Irish defense.

Agree about Barnes, Oracle.

Feel for Scotland today though. Three good opportunities not taken. Lovely try though.

Scotland mashed Ireland in the scrum there, to me that should have been a Scotland penalty.

They have one now though.

Nonsense from Barnes. Denton rolling away and Irish players come in from the side and push him back and he's penalised.

Ireland's worries about Barnes were certainly unfounded - huge penalty count against Scotland.

I'm not claiming he's biased against us by the way.

I was going to ask if he's been forgiven over in Ireland now, but didn't want to sound like I was moaning about the calls. In the list of things that have lost us this game any refereeing decisions would be a long way down, if it was even on there at all!

It has to be a mental thing with Scotland to win away from home. They have played some excellent rugby, certainly enough to beat Ireland but their lack of composure, handling and clinical finishing has seriously let them down.

They way they played here against Ireland would have to have led to a victory if at home.

You're right there Billy, and its a worry because its not an easy thing to fix. Its mindset and belief rather than systems on the field. However, we've managed to fix our form at home so hopefully in time our form away can pick up too

It must be incredibly frustrating for you Scottish fans. Scotland have actually played very well today. Ireland simply more clinical and more composed.

It's not a mental thing with scotland it's the fact they are playing attacking rugby which is riskier. When 9u take those risks and how comes with paling together for a good length of time. While it develops you will win games like 2 weeks ago or not today. Either game could have gone either way. The thing which is impressive is how townsend is developing your pack. Scrum is looking v good. Balance good. Lineout needs work. Get that sorted is he next step. Consistency will come.

Wee bit gutted at the score but we never expected a win really.
It's at least a case of us being outplayed and not playing awfully for a change. No shame in that, Ireland deserve kudos for taking the game to us.

No 7&1/2 wrote:It's not a mental thing with scotland it's the fact they are playing attacking rugby which is riskier. When 9u take those risks and how comes with paling together for a good length of time. While it develops you will win games like 2 weeks ago or not today. Either game could have gone either way. The thing which is impressive is how townsend is developing your pack. Scrum is looking v good. Balance good. Lineout needs work. Get that sorted is he next step. Consistency will come.

The problem with this is that a lot of our errors today have been unforced, final passes overthrown in the expectation of scoring etc. It's a lack of composure when it counts, which we aren't seeing anymore when we play at home. Yes the way we're playing will always lead to more errors, but its been more than that today and against Wales

Barnes hasn't helped but we can only blame ourselves here. We're not finishing things off. A player makes a great break (the hard bit) but then rather than do the easy thing simply (the easy bit) we try some mad miss pass or other un-needed daft thing
