    Need to bring on Leavy, much better than Sean O'Brien.

    I love Leavy but if we can get SOB on formcour chances of winning the WC go up by 10-20%. Worth waiting for. Henderson has been poor so far I'd want Beirne v NZ.

    O'Brien will be an excellent impact sub, Leavy will be our starting 7 come world cup, he's the best openside in the NH.

    You say best openside in the NH, I say third best at his club. Fine margins given Leinster's options admittedly.

    Also, James Ryan is a freak of nature.

    Nah, when he's fit he'll be first choice by the end of the season, you'll see, I'm always right.

    Agreed, terrifying potential.

    Could do with screwing our heads on a bit. Some mistakes very unlike a Schmidt side.

    Highlighting how important Kearney and Ringrose are to the side. We keep talking about depth but in reality if certain players are out we're ******.

    Restarts and lineouts need to improve.

    Get Toner on. Henderson has given way too much away.

    Ah if you're always right I won't argue with that. Agree on Ringrose he makes such a difference in the midfield. Kearney's positioning is so underrated as well. Depth is big from 4-8, after that we've got a lot of good players but only some of them fit into the team.

    Wouldn't surprise me if we lose this match but beat the ABs next week.

    Did sexton think he had penalty advantage?
    The decision to kick/execution on the kick was terrible

    Some of the attacking patterns have been nice, just tends to be some stupid mistake that cuts it short.

    He did have penalty advantage. If you're talking about the previous one I though it was a grand decision just got unlucky with the bounce.

    The one to Earls after the leavy turnover
    Had men to the right but kicked far too long on a crossfield instead

    NH commentators are lame, spend too much time fawning over the players and small passages of play

    He's mastering the Kearney art of running purposefully without achieving anything and then running into contact when there's a pass on. Doesn't really make it up with positioning/defence though like Sir Robert.

    Pity for Marmion, he was playing well.

    That's the third/fourth time he's warned them. Card should be out by now.
