As I said after the game, Molony and Luke spot that we're in trouble out wide so they both try to get wide as quickly as possible. Tracy is very slow to get up off the ground and into the line so Luke briefly fills the gap that he leaves but then tries to get wide again when Tracy is back in the line and it looks like Wasps will go wide, but that leaves a gap that Gopperth spots. Quick feet into a big space leaves Molony for dead but you can't blame him in the slightest. I wouldn't blame Luke either because he was working his arse off and had to gamble on going wide and hope that Tracy filled the gap. IMO Tracy is the one at fault and then the others are unlucky. Good play by Gopperth too, really good feet and an excellent finish.


McGrath was unlucky with the Gopperth try, had he not slipped I'd be confident he would have tackled him.


L McGrath is a fine tackler. He nailed Hughes with a great one.

It's a shame Adam Byrne went off so early with an injury to his hammer to fall.
Can I raise a practical question at this point? Are we gonna do "Stonehenge" tomorrow?

He'll be fighting hard for a starting place next season with a crazy little thing called Lowe

Pretty much all of what Stewie said was verbatim the same as what he said at a recent fanclub Q&A. Talked about the club and the culture and ambition of the players being to stay here and win here rather than go to France or wherever else.

The match is on TG4 again now. I hadn't noticed how slow Isa was in trying to get back to catch Wade. Not saying he should have got near him but I'm surprised at how leggy he looked.
