  1. Happy with the performance, we possibly didn’t commit enough numbers to the ruck they were messy at times! thought r second rows had a great game, henry was a threat at the breakdown all day along with his back row colleges. don’t think moore has taken ross starting place yet but we have great front row cover for the first time in years all 3 replacements r very solid and inject pace into the game.

    didn’t get to see enough of jackson to get a real opinion but he didn’t do much wrong bar maybe kicking the ball away when we were trying to get another try at the death.

    trimble had a great game even if he’s not one of the most flashy wingers.
    think r backs bench needs a bit more versatility, maybe madigan and henshaw would be better cover.

    Happy with the win hopefully we can improve game on game and be in the hunt against france

  2. Good days work i think job done not as close as i thought in the end. Scotland were very poor in the 2nd half. I think o connell being out was maybe a blessing in some way as dan stepped up got game time and paul is rested this week and with a 6 day turn around he will hopfully be back next week fresh and rearing to go. I think nezt week will be all about getting over the gain line i think ireland with quick go forward ball could beat wales but i dont know where thats going to come from. Wales on the other hand i can see there big carriers getting over the gain line and giving them quick ball. Anyway job done for ireland big test next week cant wait

  3. Thought it was pretty poor, Ireland looked pretty impotent in the first half and didn’t really open up until Scotland capitulated. SOB is a big loss that Ireland haven’t really found a way around, and O’Driscoll was barely noticeable.
