    What's wrong with Booth? :eek:

    I don't care who wins to be honest. No wait, I want 'Quins to win so I gain points in the Prediction comp - go 'Quins!

    Quins for me too.
    Booth is a characterless moron, but I loved his labelling of the final few weeks of the league season as 'The Month of Truth'.
    :D

    poor effort from Evans with that kick, really should have slotted that.

    The way he landed, anything could have happened.

    chance to make amends with a kick from the same position but again he fails with the kick.

    didn't think it was possible but Catt being an even mouthier twat than normal.

    Evans taken off the kicking duty you'd wonder why Brown wasn't taking the kicks if there was such a problem with Evans but doesn't make a difference either way.

    9 easy points missed yet no card for Irish.

    what an absolute brainfart from Brown, should have kept the ball in hand after a great break from Easter off the lineout.

    at least he made amends with the tackle there. WTF is White doing going to the tmo?

    definitely lost forward there but Armitage could have offloaded slightly earlier and he would have strolled in

    the Greenwood is right though, it's a magnificent 0-0

    goodness that could well be Hewat's last effort for a while.

    cynical from Tagickibau with that trip on Care, deservedly in the bin and surprise surprise Brown misses another penalty.

    0-0 HT.

    well we finally have a score as Armitage puts Irish ahead with a penalty.

    huge score in the context of this game hard to see Quins coming back from this.

    10-0 London Irish and all that down to 14 men.

    Evans and Care both off for Quins, not done his Lions chances much good today has Care.
