Nothing in the tackle on Sexton but tackling the 9 was utterly daft.

Lol. If it had no arms in the tackle it would of been a penalty. Not a quick chat.

Perhaps you are being one eyed?

That looks like the grand slam gone. Englands defence looks suspect,, the crowd are all over them. Well done Ireland. Such a good side.

That isn't what happened. O'Mahony and Best went over the ball, England were holding on, and O'Mahony was cleared out onto the wrong side of the ruck. England were still holding on, though. The referee took a while to give the call.

The ref was shouting release to best yet he didn't and then stole the ball.

That is what happens when Schmidtball works - huge possession stats. But that's also why it is so inconsistent. It needs to be almost errorless and is hugely taxing. I don't think we reap the rewards for it. Only 7 points ahead with 75% possession.

Henderson is so much more rounded a player than Toner, he's been a great replacement.
