  1. For every positive in the Irish performance there is sadly a negative. A game that could have been won was thrown away in the ten minutes when down to 14 and in the last 5 minutes when a chance to kick a penalty deep into Bok was run from inside our own half. Disappointing evening. But congratulations to SA fro a sound win.

  2. Hats off to Ire but I sure hope there is more to come from the Boks. If not Eng is gonna give us sticks. Ire lost the game due to Heaslip and his 10 minutes, costly for a captain… but over all well done to the Irish, a South African and Kiwi…

  3. sorry but ireland were not good sa gave away so many penalties in the firs thalf made us look good. how many times did we look like scoring a try ? never i think
    same old ireland

  4. The Irish forwards did well, McCarthy and Ryan were very good. Zebo did well on debut at full back and looked dangerous in attack. Earls defence and footwork were good but his distribution is not up to International standard, he is a winger and a very good one . We need a center who can pass time to give Cave a run maybe try Cave and McFadden against Fiji . We need to sort this out before we face the Pumas

    1. But it’s the same old story for the home nations (I would say European teams, but after France’s display yesterday I can’t), we come so close, but always fall at the final hurdle against the Sanzar teams. As a Welsh fan, I know this all too well, a small points difference is no comfort when you lose and should have won.

  5. My first Ireland match in the Aviva, really enjoyable. Thought Ireland lacked a little imagination but completely thought they could mix it with the big boys. Look at the past 12 months though, we’re always in it in the first half and then bottle it, this is out worst losing streak in 14 years now! The stadium lacks a bit of atmosphere in my opinion when Ireland play, nobody enjoys watching their home team lose that much in their capital city!

    McCarthy, Henry, Zebo, Bent all stood out for me and had solid performances. Bring on the Pumas!
