These cards are ruining the games. We have to keep people safe, so I am not sure what the hell to do about it. So many of these happen in a split second....

Another try for Ireland. It has to be said, Crowley looks a lot more settled now.

On the Willemse incident, there was no wrap which I understood meant you could not apply any mitigation?

I also don't think there was a drop in height regardless of wrap or no wrap!

France have looked awful so I don't think they were coming back with 15 anyway.

If there was no wrap that's what I understood too - but the bunker, as in the RWC, seems to be on a different set of interpretations ...

Ireland are currently winning the kicking game and both tries originated from lineouts which France can't get anywhere near.

Yep there was huge inconsistencies in the WC.

You can be sure another incident like this will come up in the 6N and will be interesting to see if the same decision is made!

Willemse is a muppet. He knew he'd got away with one first time round and then the second one was just unnecessary. He's left his team with a mountain to climb.

Lucu is a classy 9 but he looks like a deer in the headlights. Looks like he could have done with an easier game to ease himself in. Looks like he needs a second more than Ireland are giving him.

Ireland are doing Ireland things. Defence is great they just need to be patient and go through the gears in attack.

Need to make this one man count. Crowley should have really made that penalty.
McCarthy has been good first half.
Hopefully score first in this second half. Push on for the win.

As long as the other big locks aren't to seriously injured it's not a big loss for France. They've got some monsters at second row.

Dickson took a while to pick up Crowley for taking out Fickou there. Only took a couple of minutes of constant booing for the TMO to interject.

Huge call to change that penalty. Not a correct one IMO - Fickou was taken out by his own player as much as anything

I saw Austin Healey had him as a starter at lock for a predicted 2025 Lions side. He's clearly got the potential.
