Halfpenny’s looking a bit beefy! Too much weights! Looks like a flanker.

Wales should be disapointed only being 3 points in front at half time. 

Ireland look tired. out of sorts. Sexton not having a good game does nothing to help their situation either.

If it's not to be it won't be.  If he doesn't make it, he won't make it.  WC still gotta be played and will be.

You're right they look out of sorts but apart from the Biggar intercept period, where are in-form Wales looking dominant enough to be well ahead?

Ireland are doing okay for a team only learning how to play the game again Wink

Patchell HIA, not good, as he could be out for a few weeks. Biggar is usually awesome in defence but he has been rather poor during this series. JD2 hasn't been a great defender today. I think I was recently suggesting that Kearney looks past it? I was wrong about that. He is definitely the guy you want fielding the ball against teams like Wales.

Odd comment. Ireland look better in attack, for me. Wales better in the set piece perhaps.

Close game so far.

Ireland have won a few 1v1s, but as I alluded to Biggar and JD2 are missing tackles.

Looks fairly even in my view everywhere except lineout. 10-7 about right

IF (and obviously I hope not) Patchell is out, Evans has to start against Georgia in case he has to start against a bigger team.

Tomos Williams looking like first choice 9 for me. Box kicks not as rushed as Gareth Davies and Aled Davies is Aled Davies.

WTF.. complete cr@p ref decision. Ref call held up, goes to TMO as convinced by Barnes. TMO says inconclusive so on field call and ref changes his mind and awards it.... how the hell does that work.

Can you ask for the TMO, the TMO says inconclusive, but you award the try anyway?

It’s because the ref asked ‘any reason NOT to award it’. And the TMO couldn’t see a reason. So try.

Disagree about obvious. Hence needing the TMO to review it. The Hadleigh Parkes try was obvious.

Ireland were cheating all last week at the scrum Guns. You’re always so one-eyed in this fixture. If Wayne Barnes was the man in the middle you’d be having a field day.

Question was any reason I cannot award the try. Think it was Barnes who saw the grounding on the pitch. TMO says nothing conclusive to overrule the on field decision.
