Was going to say something similar. He’s cost us a few chances to put them under serious pressure but stuck a few bruises on them too

Think I'd have JGP on at 50-55. McGrath has been poor.

Wouldn't mind Porter on early enough too.

Thought Rob butchered a decent attack opportunity by taking the ball into contact instead of passing to Lowe on the wing. That's what wingers are there for!!!!

Thought that too but the conditions are tough tbf, wouldn't have been an easy pass to make.

He's not quite the physical freak but Kelleher really reminds me of Bismarck (the hooker not the ship).

Interesting to see us using Ringer at stand off in a few moves.

Our hooking and control in the scrum has been under pressure which is a rare enough sight. Suppose with Kelleher and Deegan there there's a new partnership.

Thought Ryan had read that brilliantly there but needed to give the pass instead of the dummy.

That's a yellow card for me...goes out of his way to elbow Johnny off the ball.

The illegality of it is a yellow. Shoulder charge off the ball.

His failure to clock Sexton right and injure him wins the day again. It encourages cheap shots.

McGrath is not going well at the back of the scrum or maul

Jesus Luke, what was that?

Is JGP actually on the bench? That eye doesn't look great.

I'm struggling to see the scrum issue. Deegan let one ball fly out and then hesitated at another which Luke picked up and made a break and put Ringrose away.

We need another score here or we're in trouble.

Can't get anything going.
