Well, that was or was not a red depending on how much of a sheeitebag you are

Think Barnes didn’t want to give the red. If that happened in the second half a red would have been shown.

Couple of suspect calls in a row there - first colour of card, then Sexton probably should have been pinged for rolling on the ground to avoid the turnover but instead ended up gaining a pen near the line - ended up largely irrelevant due to the earlier tackle pen though, although the 2nd pen which arguably shouldn't have happened was in better position and ended in a try.

The match is certainly living up to expectations though ...

Ringrose, as good as he is, is missing a lot of tackles.

France are not looking after the ball. Running down blind channels. Throwing offloads that are not on, chucking the ball to players not expecting it now

Ireland guilty of leaving a few opportunities out there for me though. Score line flatters France for me.

I've seen worse halves, I suppose...

France's game management has been poor, but they still have the forwards and the bench to win this. They've got a good maul and a potentially powerful scrum if they ever get the put-in. Ireland have left points out there, which will be hugely frustrating.

Decisions should be made fairly though by the offcials. To do that tv shots should be available for both equally. And yes it's more than this director but it's getting nearer to when something needs to be done.

Inconsistency again ... think Ireland were lucky to not get pinged for holding on in the passage before their 2nd try (the one where his foot did touch the ground) ... but France lucky to have 15 men on the pitch. It's been a bit of a lottery to be honest.
